Use surplus to study wind turbine heath effects 

Credit:  The Cap Times | February 7, 2014 | madison.com ~~

One would think some of Wisconsin’s nearly $1 billion budget surplus could be used to study the issues and protect the health of people who are forced to live too close to industrial wind turbines. Signed affidavits and written statements testify many people are suffering adverse health effects after wind farms started operating in their neighborhoods. When out of the area they get better but the symptoms reoccur when they return. A real unbiased health study could identify the cause of their illnesses.

A 2012 sound study, including harmful low frequency pulses, was commissioned by the PSC and resulted in a statement by the acousticians agreeing more study is urgently needed. The Brown County Board of Health is aware of the health issues and has recommended the state take action. Three families driven out of their homes near the Shirley Wind Farm should be alarming enough, but disregarding and discounting reports of people suffering statewide near wind turbines is calamitous. This problem was created by government policy and approval.

Bureaucrats have the authority and responsibility to find resolution. Some officials aware of the problems are trying to help, but more need to educate themselves and get involved in the protection of Wisconsin residents.

It’s hard to believe I live in a state that does nothing to help people forced to leave their homes and offers no help to families who cannot move away from the misery that has invaded their lives and homes. Thank God we were able to move out of our home and away from the agony almost three years ago. We just paid property taxes on a home we can’t live in, taxes that are supposed to be used to operate Wisconsin and foster liberty and justice for all.
