Theory to explain some physiological effects of the infrasonic emissions at some wind farm sites ~
Abstract. For at least four decades, there have been reports in scientific literature of people experiencing motion sickness-like symptoms attributed to low-frequency sound and infrasound. In the last several years, there have been an increasing number of such reports with respect to wind turbines; this corresponds to wind turbines becoming more prevalent. A study in Shirley, WI, has led to interesting findings that include: (1) To induce major effects, it appears that the source must be at a very low . . . Complete article »

Review of the Cape Bridgewater acoustic testing program and where it is leading ~
Recently [Steve Cooper, The Acoustic Group,] has completed a first of its kind test regarding the acoustical emissions of wind turbines. His is the first study of effects on people that includes a cooperating windfarm operator in conjunction with a researcher that does not work exclusively for windfarms. This study makes three very simple points: There is at least one non-visual, non-audible pathway for wind turbine emissions to reach, enter, and affect some people This is a longitudinal study wherein . . .

Critical analysis of: Wind turbine health impact study: report of independent expert panel ~
Abstract. The “Wind Turbine Health Impact Study: Report of Independent Expert Panel” study says: “The Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection (MassDEP) in collaboration with the Massachusetts Department of Public Health (MDPH) convened a panel of independent experts to identify any documented or potential health impacts of risks that may be associated with exposure to wind turbines, and, specifically, to facilitate discussion of wind turbines and public health based on scientific findings.” It continues, saying: “The scope of the Panel’s effort . . .

Testimony of Paul Schomer on Highland Wind plans to meet noise standards ~
Would you please state your name and address? My name is Paul D. Schomer. My business address is 2117 Robert Drive, Champaign, Illinois 61821. Have you previously provided testimony in this proceeding? Yes. I evaluated the Highland application for noise level exceedances and testified on the probable adverse impacts to the health and safety of the Town of Forest residents. I also participated in the Shirley Wind infrasound study conducted in December 2012 to evaluate the cause of adverse health . . . Complete article »

Proposed theory to explain some adverse physiological effects of the infrasonic emissions at some wind farm sites ~
Summary For at least four decades there have been reports in scientific literature of people being made ill by low-frequency sound and infrasound. In the last several years there has been an increasing number of such reports with respect to wind turbines, which corresponds, obviously, to their becoming more prevalent. A study in Shirley, Wisconsin, has led to interesting findings that include: (1) for major effects, it appears that the source must be at a very low frequency, about 0.8 . . . Complete article »

Shirley wind turbine noise study shows need for EIS ~
The Town of Forest requested that we respond to the Supplemental Environmental Assessment’s conclusion of “no significant impact” to the environment based upon the recent Shirley Wind Farm study. It is my opinion that the Shirley Wind Study does show the need for an Environmental Impact Statement for the reasons outlined below … In summary, the Shirley study added considerably to the knowledge base of why some people leave their homes when mega wind turbines are built nearby and requires an . . .

Cooperative Measurement Survey and Analysis of Low-Frequency and Infrasound at the Shirley Wind Farm ~
From comments by acoustician Rick James: Three families in the footprint of the Shirley Wind project (owned by Duke Energy) have reported adverse health effects since the wind turbine utility commenced operation. Two have been forced out of their homes. They report experiencing symptoms of the type associated with wind turbine syndrome. These families offered to act as interveners in another Wisconsin case, Highland Wind, which is in the application hearing phase. Fifty affidavits were filed by them and other . . .

Background sound measurements and analysis in the vicinity of Cape Vincent, New York ~
Executive Summary The acoustic consulting engineering firm Hessler Associates, Inc., Haymarket, Virginia produced two sound level assessment reports for two wind projects proposed for Cape Vincent, New York: the first report in 2007 for BP and the second report in 2009 for AES-Acciona. Because there were concerns early on among local citizens that the BP report was misleading, the Wind Power Ethics Group (WPEG) contracted with Schomer and Associates, Champaign, Illinois to conduct an independent background sound survey of Cape . . .
