A Proposed Metric For Assessing The Potential Of Community Annoyance From Wind Turbine Low-Frequency Noise Emissions- 1987

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

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

‘Sensing but not Hearing’: Steven Cooper On Wind Turbine Nuisance-Part 2.

'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.

‘It’s Past Time To Flip The Bird At Wind Turbines.’

'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

Wind Turbines in Court: What Are the Issues?

'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.'

Altered Cortical And Sub Cortical Connectivity Due To Infrasound Administered Near The Hearing Threshold-Evidence From fMRI.

'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'. -Markus Weichenberger, Martin Bauer, Robert Kühler, Johannes Hensel, Caroline Garcia Forlim, Albrecht Ihlenfeld, Bernd Ittermann, Jürgen Gallinat, Christian Koch, and Simone Kühn

Adverse Health Impacts Of Industrial Wind Turbines: A Scientific Response To “Its All In Your Head”

file:///C:/Users/User/Downloads/Raymond_Hartman_The_Adverse_Health_Impacts_of_IWTs-Its_all_in_your_head-full_with_CV.pdf Author:  Hartman, Raymond- 5th April 2013 In this paper, I review two recently completed research papers that purport to provide scientific evidence regarding the adverse health effects of Industrial Wind Turbines (IWTs). 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”

Wind Farm Noise Recorded Almost 9km Away

Source:  Posted on June 19, 2019 by newsdesk Photo: stock image. Flinders University researchers are investigating the effects on human sleep of noise emissions from wind farm turbines. Audible and potentially annoying indoor low-frequency noise from a wind farm is present for about 16% of the time at distances up to 3.5km, field data recorded in South Australia … Continue reading Wind Farm Noise Recorded Almost 9km Away
