Wind power opponents hope to persuade Ontario to change its green energy plans

TORONTO – The adverse health effects of giant wind turbines will be the topic of an international symposium in Picton, Ont., this weekend.

The Society for Wind Vigilance, which opposes industrial wind turbines, has organized what it says is the first big meeting of its kind to shed light on negative health effects of wind mills.

Spokeswoman Beth Harrington says scientists from around the world will present evidence showing wind turbines cause everything from sleep deprivation to nausea and headaches.

Harrington says she hopes the conference will help persuade the Ontario government to take a much closer look at the issue.

The province maintains there are no adverse health effects from the giant turbines, but it has set up a chair at the University of Waterloo to review the latest evidence from around the world.

Harrington says doctors and scientists at the conference have examined real patients with real symptoms, which she believes is more relevant than studying the latest literature.

Ontario set an hourly record for wind generation on Tuesday, hitting 1,056 Megawatts at 9:00 p.m.

Total wind output for the day was 20,650 MWh, meeting over five per cent of the day’s total power consumption in the province.
