Eganville – Concerns over the impact of wind turbines are continuing for local researcher Carmen Krogh, despite the fact no new wind farm applications have been submitted locally. “I have been told by some they are likely coming to Renfrew County,” she told BV council last Tuesday. “I don’t have proof of that.” A local researcher into the effects of wind turbines, she has been widely published and has spoken internationally on the subject for years, warning about the dangers . . .

Nation Rise Wind Farm opponents address Roumeliotis, EOHU board

Mekker and McRae in their talk spoke about the World Health Organization 2009 report on noise guidelines, and that Health Canada describes noise annoyance as an adverse human health effect. They said studies and data show that for chronically strong annoyance, a causal chain exists – sleep disturbance, sleep deprivation, cascading and deleterious adverse health outcomes, and increased morbidity. “Simply put, the noise which doesn’t stop unless the turbines stop, is an annoyance (leading to serious issues),’’ Mekker said. Mekker and McRae were invited to the meeting by the EOHU. Complete story »

No recourse: Ontario’s green energy dream has turned into a nightmare

A few years ago, Canadians and Americans in Havana, Cuba’s diplomatic community, suffered from hearing loss, memory problems, and headaches. It was widely reported that acoustic weapons were to blame, while some media outlets, including Vanity Fair, described the “hypersonic attacks” as psychosomatic, indicative of a culture of paranoia. Either way, the scientific consensus remains true: constant annoyance, whether by sound or light, is psychologically disruptive in the short term and damaging long term. A European Environment Agency report blames . . . Complete story »

2 candidates show to discuss well water issues

Dave Lusk really misses his well. Dug in 1965, the well at his Greenvalley Line farm supplied pure, cold water for some 53 years before it failed in 2018. Lusk believes the well was spoiled as the direct result of the impact of wind turbines on the aquifer. “This is green energy,” said Lusk, “but if it takes away something as important as our water…is it really that green?” Lusk is among the property owners who banded together as part . . .

There is a real possibility of a future with hundreds of Industrial Wind Turbines (IWTs) surrounding the greater Ottawa area. Quite a picture. Let me tell you a story.

The call of a rural life was strong when I bought our home in this peaceful community. I had hoped to retire here. I loved it . . . Complete story »
