Wind-farm sympathies  

Credit:  The Australian, www.theaustralian.com.au 24 April 2012 ~~

I am in sympathy with those poor people of Waterloo in South Australia (“Where eagles dare not fly: Waterloo looms as wind farms power town revolt”, 21-22/4).

I live 2km away from 67 wind turbines and when the wind is in the right direction the noise is shocking, even though we are protected by a hill and trees.

This wind farm has destroyed the landscape. The NSW government has been a party to this. At least an independent acoustic expert has shown that noise levels go well above the government’s level of supposedly acceptable noise.

Australia lags behind on this cult called wind energy. The rest of the world has woken up to the financial costs of something that will never give base-load power and will not lead to one coal-fired power station shutting down.
