Wind Turbine Noise: a simple statement of facts ~
Emission of Sound and Vibration Note:  ILFN = infrasound and low-frequency noise. 1. Wind turbine blades produce airborne pressure waves (correctly called sound but which, when unwanted, is called noise) and ground-borne surface motion (vibration). 2. Recent measurements have indicated that turbines generate vibrations even when shut down,[1] presumably from the wind causing the flexing of large blades and the tower structure, and that this vibration (when turbines are shut down) can be measured at significant distances. 3. The airborne energy manifests as . . .

Response to NHMRC Systematic Review and Draft Information Statement concerning wind turbines and adverse health effects ~
The NHMRC have not invited public comments on the Systematic Literature Review, however as this document forms the basis for the NHMRC Draft Information Statement, the Foundation has looked at the Systematic Literature Review document closely and found serious cause for concern. Those concerns are outlined below. We note that the document has been peer reviewed, however no details have been provided about the identity or qualifications of the Canadian Peer Reviewers, in particular their expertise and knowledge in the . . .

Explicit Warning Notice (health problems with large wind turbines) ~
To Planning Authorities, Departments of Health, Environmental Protection Agencies, Federal, State and Local Governments, Wind Industry Developers and Acoustic Consultants — Our Explicit Cautionary Notice dated 29th June, 2011 [1] warned of the emerging serious health problems with large industrial scale wind turbines, with adverse health impacts including repetitive sleep disturbance and physiological stress having been reported at that time out to 10km. Over two years have passed since that caution, and none of the above addressees has taken any . . . Complete article »

Critical analysis of accuracy of the “complaints” data from the Chapman et al “nocebo” research ~
Background The hypothesis that “suggestion” from “anti wind farm activists” (with particular reference to the CEO of the Waubra Foundation) is itself causing the symptoms reported by wind turbine residents has recently been claimed by many supporters of renewable energy, wind turbine developers, wind turbine manufacturers and the media, to have been “proven” with a recent research paper accepted for publication from Sydney University researchers led by Professor Simon Chapman.[1] This research by Chapman et al itself relied heavily on . . .

How to Apply the Precautionary Principle to Wind Energy Projects ~
A Guide to Responsible Authorities, Departments of Planning and Health and Wind Energy Developers The NHMRC’s Public Statement dated June 2010 included the words: “it is recommended that relevant authorities take a precautionary approach and continue to monitor research outcomes.” This statement does not offer the option of either – or. The statement was repeated by the NHMRC’s CEO in his oral testimony on 31st March 2011 to the Senate Hearing into the Social and Economic Effects of Rural Wind . . . Complete article »

Wind Turbine Acoustic Pollution Assessment Requirements ~
On behalf of the many people around the world, suffering acute and chronic health damage from living near wind turbines, the Waubra Foundation demands that relevant authorities initiate: full frequency spectrum acoustic monitoring inside and outside the homes and workplaces of people claiming health problems caused by the proximity of operating wind turbines; the monitoring must be conducted for sufficient time, under the weather and wind conditions indicated by victims as being contributive to their symptoms; measurements must specifically include, . . .

Response to NSW Planning Department Draft Guidelines for Wind Developments ~
SUMMARY OF KEY ISSUES On the basis of current limited knowledge, these proposed draft guidelines will inevitably result in serious and predictable harm, to the health of current and future rural residents in New South Wales, from the harmful effects of sound and vibration energy generated by industrial wind turbines. The New South Wales Department of Health’s refusal to acknowledge the existence of an emerging serious global public health problem with exposure to operating wind turbines, is a gross dereliction . . .

Explicit cautionary notice to those responsible for wind turbine siting decisions ~
Including Specifically Directors of Wind Developers, Publicly Elected Officials from Federal, State and Local Government, and Bureaucrats in Relevant Departments BE ADVISED that, as a result of information gathered from the Waubra Foundation’s own field research, and from the clinical and acoustic research available internationally, the following serious medical conditions have been identified in people living, working, or visiting within 10km of operating wind turbine developments. The onset of these conditions corresponds directly with the operation of wind turbines: chronic . . . Complete article »
