'The expansion of wind farm facilities in Australia has led to widespread community complaints regarding noise, sleep disturbance and adverse health effects.
This five-year collaborative study is looking into how the noise from wind turbines affects people's health. It also tests how much windfarm noise disturbs sleep compared to traffic noise'.
'An understanding of the nature of the sound pressure waves(v) emitted by turbines and the impacts of that energy upon neighbours is essential to any assessment of the possible breaching of human rights'.
Suddenly, previously taboo questions are being heard. For example, are the emissions
released in the building and installation of turbines ever really offset? Given their major
impact on bird mortality and possible links to childhood leukaemia, should the spread of
overhead powerlines be limited? And with an estimated 43 million tonnes by 2050 of
unrecyclable blade waste, who will pay the cost of decommissioning?
