25th March, 2022 By Jon Daly on PM, ABC Radio The operators of a wind farm have been ordered to stop making noise at night and pay hundreds of thousands of dollars to neighbours for sleepless nights. John Zakula and Noel Uren successfully sued the Bald Hills Wind Farm and have been awarded $260,000 in … Continue reading Noisy WF Legal Precedent-ABC Radio

http://www.windaction.org/posts/38138-a-proposed-metric-for-assessing-the-potential-of-community-annoyance-from-wind-turbine-low-frequency-noise-emissions#.Xy5gGChKjIU This paper, presented at the Windpower ’87 Conference & Exposition in San Francisco by N.D. 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
Health Effects of Industrial Wind: The Debate Intensifies (update with Steven Cooper) 30th July, 2020 By Sherri Lange - Master Resource Source: https://www.masterresource.org/wind-turbine-noise-issues/health-effects-update-steven-cooper-june-2020/ “Exposing the fact that the cost-benefit analyses for wind farms are wrong, the power output modelling is wrong, the acoustic modelling is wrong, and the acoustic dose response data is wrong could … Continue reading Health Effects of Industrial Wind: The Debate Intensifies
'I suggest that with respect to the description of wind turbine noise it is a matter of terminology that needs a shift as follows:
The language should be pulsations at an infrasound rate.
Modulation of the entire signal at an infrasound rate. (Zwicker and Fastl call this fluctuation as a sensation detected by the ear).
AM is present as some discrete low frequencies modulated at the bpf.
UK method of AM is determining the modulation index of the fluctuating signal (not technically AM).
You can determine the Modulation Index of the low frequency noise that is AM.' -Steven Cooper.
'Experience overseas suggests that, apart from hydro power, renewables are unreliable, uneconomical and very unfriendly to the environment they are claimed to protect. Evidence from places investing heavily in renewables such as Denmark, Germany and California demonstrates they are intermittent power generators needing back-up from conventional energy sources.'-John Mikkelsen
'The plaintiffs claim that developers built the project too close to their homes and as a result, have created a number of hazards and adverse health effects, including sleep disturbance, annoyance, headaches, dizziness, vertigo, nausea, motion sickness, bodily sensations, fatigue, stress, depression, memory deficits, inability to concentrate, anxiety and an overall reduced quality of life. The complaint says that these effects are largely due to the shadow flicker and loud noise that comes from the turbines when they are in motion.'
'While increased local connectivity in ACC and rAmyg may only reflect an initial bodily stress response towards (sub-)liminal IS, we speculate that stimulation over longer periods of time could exert a profound effect on autonomic functions and may eventually lead to the formation of symptoms such as sleep disturbances, panic attacks or depression, especially when additional risk factors, such as an increased sensibility towards noise, or strong expectations about the harmfulness of IS are present'.

Having done so, I find that they provide no scientific information. Rather, they present disinformation which may be used to improperly shape public … Continue reading Adverse Health Impacts Of Industrial Wind Turbines: A Scientific Response To “Its All In Your Head”
