Turbine truths

Mark Raymond (Letters, March 28) assures people there are no health risks associated with wind turbines, even in large numbers. This is apparently based on a visit to Denmark. He also says there is no public health debate on turbines in Denmark.

Does this mean that a 2011 Australian Senate inquiry recommendation for epidemiological research on health and wind farms (as a matter of priority) is no longer necessary?

Is Raymond aware of the European Platform Against Windfarms (epaw.org), which now has 589 member organisations from 24 European countries, including Denmark? Is he aware that Professor Henrik Moeller, a highly regarded acoustician from Aalborg University in Denmark, has strongly criticised the Danish government for manipulating data to allow the siting of wind turbines too close to homes? Moeller says the new Danish regulations on noise from wind turbines underestimate the indoor levels of low-frequency noise, and are inadequate to protect the nearest neighbours from damaging low-frequency noise. Such noise is more prominent with the large turbines now being used.

Sleep disruption from wind turbines occurs in Denmark, just as it does in English-speaking countries. Further, because of increasing public resistance, there is a push to locate turbines offshore, rather than onshore.
