Wind energy proponents unable to prove that 500 ft. wind towers don’t harm nearby families  

State Senator Frank Lasee is standing up for families that have been hurt by 500 foot tall industrial wind turbines, demanding proof that these towers are safe before more are built. Democrats and environmental activists are pushing for more wind power in Wisconsin despite a lack of impartial scientific evidence showing that industrial wind turbines are safe.

“I have spoken with children who have suffered a range of symptoms and families that have been forced to move after 500 foot tall industrial wind turbines were built near their homes. The harm caused by these 500 foot tall industrial wind turbines is real. The science purporting to showing they are safe doesn’t exist,” said Lasee.

“Until we have solid scientific evidence showing that 500 foot tall industrial wind turbines are safe, we should stop subjecting Wisconsin families to the physical and financial harm they cause,” stated Senator Lasee.

Lasee has introduced bills this session to protect families hurt by 500 foot industrial wind turbines.

SB-71 is a measure that gives local units of government the power to enact ordinances that protect their constituents. A second bill will let families that harmed by 500 foot industrial wind turbines to sue in court for medical, moving, damages and other costs associated with 500 foot wind towers built too close to their homes.
