( I came across this article which I found quite amusing. I've put the funnier parts in italics and added some comments in brackets. I'm glad I don't have to write for the pro wind industry )
Wind Turbines and Health
december 03, 2011
I researched the topic extensively and found no scientifically credible evidence that wind turbines eroded human health. I was then asked to produce a more extensive report that was issued by the Chatham-Kent Health Unit. Since then I have been asked to speak on a number of occasions about wind turbines and health, and I have collaborated on an international panel review on the topic with some of the biggest names in audiology and occupational health.
It is admittedly a complicated topic that has been made more complicated by the huge amount of misinformation that has been circulated. Wind turbines do not produce unique sounds in terms of intensity or characteristics. The sound intensity is virtually the same as what is found in normal urban environments. (The turbines are being placed in rural areas, not urban areas or towns, that's why we choose to live out here, to get away from noise! And tell me what hums and makes whoosh whoosh whoosh sounds non stop for twenty years ?)
Wind power opponents continue to make claims about sickness caused by turbines, which they call "industrial" wind turbines, as that sounds more threatening. ( Sorry but a structure that is 40 storeys high with blades having the wing span of a 747 jet, making non-stop noises is "industrial". If you have you been to Wolfe Island, you will see that the farm fields have been turned into an Industrial nightmare. )
