Aussies don’t take it lying down

Which people are leading the fight against useless, expensive, destructive wind turbines?
– Australians!



Those of us fighting the wind farm scam around the world pay tribute to the courageaous people who, from Down Under, are threatening that evil industry.

In the latest article on their epic fight, we found the following to be of interest:

“Another resident on Blowholes Road, who did not want to be identified, said residents had been pro-wind energy before the project was constructed, but now realised there were alarming side effects.

“He said as well as health concerns, property values had plummeted to the point where some were almost unsaleable.”


And also this, which is something to look forward to:

“Six people took part in acoustic testing for eight weeks in June and July related to the Pacific Hydro wind facility at Cape Bridgewater.

“Acoustics expert Steven Cooper is expected to present his final report on February 9 in Portland, with Senator John Madigan also likely to attend.”


More:
some houses on Blowholes Road, where turbines tower over the popular coastal spot, have been vacated.

Are wind turbines killing people?


suicide



It is growing everyday more evident that wind turbines are slowly killing some residents who live in their immediate vicinity or beyond. But we can’t prove it as yet. How do you ask a dead person what was the exact cause of her suicide? How do you get a doctor to certify that the heart attack or the cancer that killed Mr. XYZ was caused by the wind turbines installed near his home?


Yet we hear of suicides in homes near wind turbines. We hear of cardio-vascular diseases, we hear of cancers…


In spite of numerous requests for epidemiological studies to be conducted near wind farms, governments turn a deaf ear. Precautionary principle? – out the window. Public health care? – down the drain. Justice? – you must be joking. All we get are denials. Governments commission biassed research that predictably denies any problems exist.


The studies are doctored to whitewash the “planet-saving” contraptions. Infrasound is excluded, yet it is known to be the cause of most of the health problems experienced by residents. Epidemiological studies are never conducted, and studies rely on “modelling” for their sound measurements. Here is what a scientist wrote about modelling: “Give me three parameters, I’ll draw you an elephant. Give me four and I’ll wag its tail”.


The “democratic” society we live in is corrupt to the point where we can’t even trust the judiciary – see below how the European Court of Justice mishandled a case brought to them by over 600 European associations of residents. So, how are we to trust our health authorities? They have covered up for the tobacco industry for decades: why do you think they will act any different now?

Bullying
Bullying a windfarm victim



In an article of August 22, 2014 by Lindsay Abrams, trying to discredit the claims of wind farm victims, we read: “Since 1998, 49 lawsuits in five countries have alleged that the clean energy source [wind farms] is making people sick. But according to new research published by the Energy and Policy Institute, the courts have shut those claims down in all cases but one.” http://www.suntimes.com/news/otherviews/29416340-452/wind-turbines-dont-make-people-sick.html

– I say: we could find similarly meaningless statistics if we went back in time, when the courts were absolving the Tobacco Industry.

– Most courts, like governments, have swallowed the windfarm scam hook, line and sinker. This recent judgment, evidencing a strong pro-wind bias, says it all: http://www.epaw.org/media.php?lang=en&article=pr48

– Court decisions can’t be held as the gold standard of truth and fairness. All the more in a society obsessed with political correctness, where certain ideas are arbitrarily declared “consensual”, and turned into dogmas which become ipso facto more important than the facts. Don’t we know that progress in science is almost always achieved by rejecting the “consensus”? And so it is with infrasound emitted by wind turbines: the dogma saying these emissions are benign is about to be blown apart, and this is what sparks desperate attempts at bullying and discrediting windfarm victims and the health professionals who support them.



The article proceeds to say: “The name “wind turbine syndrome” was coined by Nina Pierpont, a pediatrician who also happens to be an anti-wind activist”.

– This is the pot calling the kettle black. Mike Barnard, cited as a reference, is one of the world’s best known activists of the windfarm scam. He is in fact a professional activist, making a living from it, and receiving all kinds of help from the industry.

– Barnard, as quoted by the author of the article, criticizes people who “have declared themselves as experts”, forgetting that this includes himself. Indeed, he has no qualifications for doing what he does, yet he calls himself the “lead researcher” in the “new study” that is calling thousands of windfarm victims “liers”. The man does not know the meaning of the words “consistency” and “intellectual honesty”. He is the typical odious bully, and so appears to be Lindsay Abrams, who quotes him while adding a layer of smear of his own brew.

– Dr Nina Pierpont, on the other hand, is a courageous pediatrician who conducted field research years ago, paid with her own money, in which she found that wind farm neighbors who were complaining of sleep disruption, headaches, nauseas etc. had very consistent symptoms, which prompted her to coin a new ailment: the Wind Turbine Syndrome. She published a book on her findings, and is giving evidence in court around the world: does that make her an activist?

The propaganda piece continues: “But a review of 60 peer-reviewed articles published earlier this summer in the journal Frontiers of Public Health found only that audible noise from turbines can be annoying to some people — electromagnetic fields, low-frequency noise, infrasound and “shadow flicker” all were deemed unlikely to be affecting human health.”

– How could all these articles pretend that infrasound is “unlikely” to affect people, when we know that the military and the police have developed weapons using infrasound for debilitating enemy troops or unruly crowds? The technology is not mature yet, as a way must be found to spare friendly troops. But more devices are being patented all the time: http://www.schizophonia.com/archives/index.htm (click article: “Deadly Silence”)

– And what about the Vibro Acoustic Disease, a long-known ailment which affects people exposed to machines that produce infrasound? http://wcfn.org/2014/07/15/open-letter-to-the-danish-government/

– Then ask yourselves: if infrasound were harmless, would the wind industry and governments that promote it systematically refuse to conduct research into infrasound emitted by wind turbines? And this at the risk of being sued one day for gross negligence?
I can smell a rat, can’t you?



Finally, the author of the article resorts to personal attack: “When Dr. Pierpont attempts to appear in court as an expert witness, she is rejected outright along with her 294-page vanity press book, as happened in a tribunal related to the Adelaide wind farm in Ontario.”

– She did not “attempt to appear in Court”. Her testimony was called by windfarm victims but, abusively, the judge refused to hear their expert witness. What does that tell you about the independence of justice in Ontario, a Canadian Province thoroughly corrupted by the windfarm scam?
In other countries, she was allowed to testify, and her interventions have been very helpful, whatever the outcome.

– “rejected outright along with her 294-page vanity press book” says Lindsay Abrams.
– I say: while pro-wind literature flourishes thanks to billions of dollars of public money spent to inundate the world with it, independent researchers must finance their own publications. Does that make these less valuable?
But Abrams could not resist bullying Dr Pierpont on this score, thereby bringing discredit upon himself.

Windfarm swindle hits the rocks



Wind turbine infrasound affects OVULATION (Denmark)

Ovulation

“All my female employees are complaining of irregular menstruations, and several have permanent headaches.” (Boye Jensen, whose garden center has now 3 wind turbines as neighbors).

Windfarms: 1,600 miscarriages

still-born-minks

“1,600 animals were born prematurely at a mink farm last month. Many had deformities, and most were dead on arrival.”…”The only thing different at the farm since last year has been the installation of four large wind turbines only 328 meters away.”

Another horror story from Denmark

“…when the wind blows from the South West (where the nearby wind turbines are), mother minks attack their own puppies…” See the video here:Young mink badly bitten

Windfarms kill another small business


Boye_Jensen_at_his_plant_nursery

“The owner is now closing his business for fear of being held liable should a child be born with deformities, as happened to numerous mink puppies at a fur farm near wind turbines in Jutland (1).”

The wind industry can no longer deny it. Tangible proof is here at last. The windfarm swindle has hit the rocks.

Welcome to green hell


Infrasound recorded visually

footprints


A group of mechanical engineers at the University of Minnesota recently managed to record infrasound visually. By placing a search light next to a wind turbine, with falling snow acting as a screen, it is possible to SEE the footprints of infrasound generated by each turbine blade as it passes in front of the tower. The pulsations are recorded, like footsteps in the snow. See this AMAZING VIDEO


These infrasound impulses can no longer be denied by the wind industry: they are so real they can be SEEN. But this is counting without the media at large, which manipulate public opinion by cherry picking the “stories” they will publish, and ignoring the others. Shamelessly, their editors have sold out to green fascists, crony capitalists and corrupt politicians. The new world order is here, complete with its propaganda machine and its benevolent führer.

EnBW To Launch Offshore Windpark In Baltic Sea



The Jews of this new evil empire are the windfarm neighbors. They are the roadkills of Energiewende, a fourth Reich with the world in its grip, where once again crooks impose their sick schemes through crafty manipulation. Tortured by the thousand through sleep deprivation, rural families are the collateral damage of this new regime whose war is against common sense and moderation. Their concentration camps are their own homes: moving isn’t affordable if one’s house loses a big chunk of its value and one’s income is tied to the location.

About the reality of the Wind Turbine Syndrome: Letter from Dr. Nina Pierpont, July 2nd 2014

Simon Chapman, the denialist

 

Simon Chapman
Professor Simon Chapman

In a recent TV programme * we could hear Simon Chapman say someting like: all the symptoms described by windfarm opponents are present in any community, whether they are near wind turbines or not – headaches, nausea, sleeplessness, high tension, heart attacks, etc.

* ABC: “Blowing hot and cold on wind power”.
http://www.abc.net.au/news/2013-08-09/blowing-hot-and-cold-on-wind-power/4877590

– Of all the silliest arguments! Yes, and deaths also occur in every community, right? But when 400 goats die in Taiwan * because a wind turbine was built 40 meters from their enclosure, we know something is dead wrong (no pun).

* taiwanese goats BBC story:  http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/8060969.stm
(yet the BBC is nororiously, furiously pro-wind)

Chapman would be more convincing if he had bought (for a song) one of the houses vacated then demolished at Waubra (to remove the evidence), and spent his week-ends and vacations there. Put your money where your mouth is, Mr Denialist!

Chapman: If you can’t hear a sound, there is no known way that it can affect your health.

You are wrong, Mr sociologist posing as an acoustician. You should know that acoustics is a most complex science, and that there are peer-reviewed studies that show how wrong you are. Even in 1985, when NASA built several prototypes of wind turbines for testing, acousticians found they emitted infrasound at levels high enough to cause health problems. Limits not to be exceeded were then proposed:

“the joint radiation levels (expressed in terms of acoustic intensity and measured external to a structure) in the 8, 16, 31.5 and 63 Hz standard (ISO) octaves should not exceed band intensity threshold limits of 60, 50, 40 and 40 dB (re 1 pWm -2) more than 20% of the time.  These figures compare favourably with a summary of low-frequency annoyance situations by Hubbard [32]. ”
https://www.wind-watch.org/documents/acoustic-noise-associated-with-the-mod-1-wind-turbine-its-source-impact-and-control/    downlod the study, go to page 225

What happened then? The study was published, and presented at the Windpower ’87 Conference and Exposition – October 5-8, 1987, San Francisco, California. Then it was decided to never talk about wind turbines emitting infrasound ever again. This is called a cover-up, Mr know-it-all!

Saying “what you can’t hear can’t harm you” is as silly as saying that what you can’t see can’t harm you. Can you see a virus, Mr Chapman? No! So it can’t harm you, right? Tell me, do you think your fellow Australians are morons?  You should show more respect.

Chapman: No peer reviewed studies to prove the point of so-called windfarm victims.

Absolutely false. There are a number of them: the field study carried out by Dr Nina Pierpont in the US, and made into a book “The Windfarm Syndrome”, was peered-reviewed. “A Cooperative Measurement Survey and Analysis of Low Frequency and Infrasound at the Shirley Wind Farm in Brown County, Wisconsin”, by Dr Paul Schomer et al., was peer-reviewed. “Properly Interpreting the Epidemiologic Evidence About the Health Effects of Industrial Wind Turbines on Nearby Residents”  by  Carl V. Phillips was peer reviewed, and a half dozen more. But Mr Denialist denies the obvious, in a defiant attitude well rendered by the above picture..

Conclusion: Chapman was perhaps chosen to defend wind turbines because he was, in the past, known to be an anti-tobacco activist. And indeed, this argument is now thrown at people who question his judgement. The reasoning goes like this: the man could not possibly be pro-wind if wind turbines were bad for the health of neighbours – “he was against tobacco”!

Oh yeah? What kind of logic is that?  DUH!

Logic is not Mr Denialist’s forte. His particular skill is to be able to lie without blinking an eye – not like the other idiot from Vestas (watch the video on Act on Facts, and count the blinks! it’s a laugh!).
