The panel was organized by Richard Schadewald, a Brown County supervisor who also serves as the chair of the Brown County Board of Health. He said he’s impartial to the issue, but understands the residents . . . Complete story »

Annette Smith: The winds of woe

Prospective neighbors of wind turbines heard all the promises: “Quiet as a library.” “Like a baby’s breath.” “The same decibel level as a refrigerator.” The more brazen wind developers claimed “you will not hear them.” Then the four hundred and fifty foot wind towers with their bus-size nacelles and three-bladed fans were built. Sixteen in Sheffield, four on Georgia Mountain, twenty-one in Lowell. And neighbors learned the truth. Yes, you can hear them. They sound like “a jet plane that . . . Complete story »

Wind turbine hold-ups in Shropshire and Mid Wales could ‘put patients at risk’

Fears have been raised that lorries carrying wind turbine parts through Shropshire and Mid Wales could cause hold-ups for patients travelling to hospital. Joy Jones, county councillor for Newtown and leader of the town’s health forum, has today voiced concerns that convoys transporting wind turbine parts for work on the Tirgwynt windfarm, between Cefn Coch and Carno, and the Garreg Llwyd Hill windfarm, on the Black Mountain between Felindre and Llanbadarn Fynydd, will cause disruption to Mid Wales patients’ journeys . . .

Money, politics should not trump health

In a Reporter article April 13 our County Health Officer Kim Mueller said, “… There isn’t any conclusive evidence that the (wind) turbines cause human health problems. …” Where is Mueller’s documentation of the complaints that Fond du Lac County residents have made regarding health issues which we believe began when the wind turbines went online eight years ago? Were the contents of these calls and emails ever presented to the County Board of Health? When was the last time . . . Complete story »

Letter: Rebuttal on ‘no evidence turbines impact health’

Fond du Lac Public Health Officer Kim Mueller is correct that for the last three years she has been stating that there is no evidence wind turbines cause health issues. But in the last three years studies have been done around the world stating otherwise. We even have the wind turbines in Brown County. The Wisconsin Public Service Commission was involved in this study. Four acousticians tested and one of them became ill while testing. A quote from the report . . . Complete story »

Counties seek state study of wind power, health

Brown and Kewaunee counties are asking the state Legislature to follow through on an initiative from the governor and fund a study of the potential human-health impact of industrial wind turbines. Brown County Executive Troy Streckenbach and Kewaunee County Board Chairman Ron Heuer plan to ask their respective boards to sign on in support of a request that the state either fund a study, or cede control of wind-turbine siting regulations to the counties – which would then presumably require greater . . .

Shirley Wind Farm ruling shouldn’t be last word

One chapter of the Shirley Wind Farm saga ended this past week, but the story needs to continue for the sake of the people living near the wind turbines — and those living near turbines elsewhere. To recap, Brown County Health Director Chua Xiong, after deliberations that went on over months and were obviously agonizing, ruled that she lacked scientific evidence to link the illnesses of some people living near the eight-turbine wind farm in southern Brown County. Xiong’s opinion is not shared . . . Complete story »

County: Can’t tie Shirley Wind Farm to health

In a devastating setback for people living near the Shirley Wind farm, Brown County’s health director on Tuesday declared that insufficient evidence exists to link wind turbines to illnesses suffered by people who live near them. Residents of Glenmore and Morrison – and people living near wind projects throughout Wisconsin – had packed a meeting room at Brown County Cooperative Extension. Many hoped that Health Director Chua Xiong would order Shirley Wind shut down. But Xiong, her voice sometimes breaking, said the . . . Complete story »

Wind farm experts ‘not qualified’ to link turbines to health

Acoustics experts who claimed a link existed between wind turbines and the health of some nearby residents at Cape Bridgewater in southwestern Victoria were not qualified to make the connection, wind farm operator Pacific Hydro said yesterday. Pacific Hydro said it had never accepted that a cause-and-effect link had been established between its wind farm and the health of some residents, despite years of complaints and the findings of a detailed investigation by acoustics expert Steven Cooper. Mr Cooper will . . . Complete story »
