Too little research into wind farms  

Credit:  The Canberra Times | February 28, 2014 | www.canberratimes.com.au ~~

The headline ”Wind farms receive a report of good health” (February 25, p6) about the NHMRC (National Health and Medical Research Council) review of wind farms and health is a bit rich. Professor Warwick Anderson, chief executive of NHMRC, in fact said that: ”The existing body of evidence relating to wind farms and health remains small and mostly of poor quality and further high-quality research is needed.” This is in keeping with the Senate Inquiry on wind farms in 2011, which called for adequately resourced research on wind farms and health.

There are thousands of anecdotal reports worldwide on problems associated with wind farms and health. And hundreds of groups worldwide dedicated to resisting them. One finds no such thing with solar panels and solar energy. Why? Because wind farms have real problems, for which the gold-standard research has mostly not yet been done.
