Industrial wind turbines and aesthetics  

Credit:  The Goderich Signal-Star, www.goderichsignalstar.com 19 January 2011 ~~

At a Central Huron all candidates’ meeting held on October 08, 2010 at the Bluewater Shores Lakefront Resort, Reeve James Ginn was attributed to the following statements in the Clinton News Record:

James Ginn notes he is a wind-energy supporter and that he has signed wind leases for his own property.

“It follows my stewardship convictions,” he says, adding he does believe the province should’ve undertaken health studies but, overall, “aesthetics’ is not enough reason to turn down wind-turbine projects.

Wikipedia describes aesthetics as a branch of philosophy dealing with the nature of beauty, art, and taste, and with the creation and appreciation of beauty.[1] It is more scientifically defined as the study of sensory or sensori-emotional values, sometimes called judgments of sentiment and taste.[2] More broadly, scholars in the field define aesthetics as “critical reflection on art, culture and nature.”[3][4] Aesthetics is related to axiology, a branch of philosophy, and is closely associated with the philosophy of art.[5] Aesthetics studies new ways of seeing and of perceiving the world.[6]

At this point , over one hundred people living in Ontario within industrial wind turbine (IWT) projects have come forward claiming to be suffering the effects of Low Frequency Noise (LFN) generated by IWTs erected too close to their homes.

Can Reeve Ginn please explain to those residents of Central Huron who suffer the prospect of living, without choice, within either the Twenty Two Degrees or Summerhill IWT projects, how Low frequency Noise can be categorized as something aesthetic?
