Wind Turbine Noise and Human Health: A Four-Decade History of Evidence that Wind Turbines Pose Risks
The primary aims of the linked article are to provide our reference sources for much of the information in that earlier series [background, evidence, and how the ear and brain process infrasound], as well as to update that information. We do so by addressing 12 specific position statements frequently made by the wind industry, its trade associations, and other surrogates. We address these position statements, many of which are revealed to be little more than unfounded talking points, by a . . . Complete article »

Negative health impact of noise from industrial wind turbines: How the ear and brain process infrasound
This article, the final of three installments, discusses the relationship between various health effects and our current understanding of the processing of infrasound by the ear and brain. [Part 1: Some Background; Part 2: The Evidence.] [Addendum: A Four-Decade History of Evidence that Wind Turbines Pose Risks] As noted in the second installment of this series, Dr. Geoff Leventhall, a co-author of the 2009 AWEA/CanWEA report, attributes the health complaints of people who live near industrial wind turbines (IWTs) to . . .

Negative health impact of noise from industrial wind turbines: The evidence
This post, the second of three installments, reviews the major research findings linking low-frequency noise and infrasound from industrial wind turbines with effects on health and quality of life.[1] [Part 1: Some Background; Part 3: How the Ear and Brain Process infrasound; Addendum: A Four-Decade History of Evidence that Wind Turbines Pose Risks] Evidence that industrial wind turbines (IWTs) negatively impact human health is vast and growing. Although that evidence acknowledges that the exact exposures needed to impact health and . . . Complete article »

Negative health effects of noise from industrial wind turbines: Some background
This post, the first of a three-part series, provides a broad overview of the topic. The second installment will review the major research findings linking low-frequency noise and infrasound from industrial wind turbines with effects on health and quality of life. Part three will discuss the relationship between various health effects and the processing of infrasound by the ear and brain.[1] [Addendum: “A Four-Decade History of Evidence that Wind Turbines Pose Risks”] Cary Shineldecker was skeptical about the wind project . . .

Review of Crichton et al (Can expectations produce symptoms from infrasound associated with wind turbines?)
Crichton, F, Dodd, G., Schmid, G., Gamble, G. & Petrie, K.J. (2013). Can expectations produce symptoms from infrasound associated with wind turbines? Health Psychology, Advance online publication. doi:10.1037/a0031760 [download] The above-referenced study by Crichton et al. (2013) is open to criticism for its many methodological weaknesses. The most notable criticism is that their subjects were never actually exposed to infrasound. If the “studio woofer” was capable of producing a 5 Hz stimulus, they should have at least described or shown . . . Complete article »

Recommended Update of Sample Zoning for Wind Energy Systems
On April 16, 2008, a document titled Sample Zoning for Wind Energy Systems was published by the state of Michigan. That document is attached as an appendix. Recent contacts with Michigan state government offices revealed that the state has no current plans to update the guideline. Consequently, we prepared this report in an attempt to inform the public and assist municipalities and counties that are responsible for developing zoning for wind energy systems. We strongly recommend that the state of . . . Complete article »

Wind-turbine noise: What audiologists should know
Most of us would agree that the modern wind turbine is a desirable alternative for producing electrical energy. one of the most highly touted ways to meet a federal mandate that 20 percent of all energy must come from renewable sources by 2020 is to install large numbers of utility-scale wind turbines. Evidence has been mounting over the past decade, however, that these utility-scale wind turbines produce significant levels of low-frequency noise and vibration that can be highly disturbing to . . .
