Couple claim windfarm health issues  

Credit:  Yahoo7 | March 14, 2013 | au.news.yahoo.com ~~

A South Australian couple claims they are suffering horror side effects from windfarms, and say poor health is not worth the financial compensation received for having turbines on their land.

David and Alida Mortimer live on a property near Millicent in South Australia’s South-East, with two wind turbines just 750m from their home.

They claim that since the towers were installed, they have experienced uncanny symptoms.

“Pressure in my head, pulsing, now it is developing into ear aches,” Mr Mortimer told 7News.

Ms Mortimer says her main problem is a loss of balance.

The pair says when they leave their home, the problems disappear.

They say money is no compromise for health.

“We’d much rather be bereft of it and have our health,” Mr Mortimer said.

They joined other farming families in Adelaide today protesting a proposed wind farm on the Yorke Peninsula.

While many were in town for a parliamentary committee into windfarms, Anne Bressington was a no-show, so no guests were allowed in the gallery.

As a result, interstate AGL chiefs still gave evidence behind closed doors.

“What they told us was that it was important to make sure that governments made their decisions about wind farms based on real evidence,” Greens MLC Mark Parnell said.
The Clean Energy Council agrees, and says if projects are continually held off, consumers will face higher electricity bills.
