Kelley, a physicist at the Solar Energy Research Institute in Golden, Colorado validates the fact that turbines (both upwind and downwind) produce low-frequency sound emissions that can negatively impact humans within their homes. Although modern wind turbines are different … Continue reading A Proposed Metric For Assessing The Potential Of Community Annoyance From Wind Turbine Low-Frequency Noise Emissions- 1987

'Moorabool Shire Mayor David Edwards said the council was pushing for the powerlines to go underground.
"For council to say, 'We just want the project to go away', that's not reality," he said.
"The project will go ahead … but what we've got to do is make sure it's the least impact to the community.
"The negative impact shouldn't be borne by regional Victoria just to feed metropolitan Melbourne. We've been very clear about that."' by Lisa Martin-ABC Ballarat.
'Household solar panel systems could be turned on and off under State Government instructions in a bid to avert statewide blackouts predicted as early as this spring, a new report shows.
The unprecedented move is being triggered by concerns from the national energy market operator that South Australia’s world-leading take-up of solar panels is making the grid unstable'.-Matt Smith, The Advertiser.
Troubled teenagers demanding an all wind and sun powered future are setting themselves up for an almighty toxic shock, with hundreds of millions of wind turbine blades destined for landfill.
As Steve St. Angelo reports from the USA, wind turbine blades are non-recyclable due to the fact that they are a complex composite of highly toxic plastics, comprising fiberglass, epoxy, polyvinyl chloride foam, polyethylene terephthalate foam, balsa wood, and polyurethane coatings.
Already, thousands of 45-70m blades are being ground up and mixed with concrete used in the bases of other turbines erected later or simply dumped in landfill. Which should worry locals: the plastics in the blades are highly toxic, and contain Bisphenol A, which is so dangerous to health that the European Union and Canada have banned it.
When an ‘industry’ presents itself as being purer than driven snow, it’s understandable that the proletariat might be just a…
