Mt Emerald Wind Farm and Marshall Day Acoustics Face Court
Legal action has been lodged in the Supreme Court of Queensland against the Mt Emerald wind farm and Marshall Day Acoustics. The wind farm noise is claimed to have exceeded noise limits, is causing substantial damage and unreasonable interference to it's neighbour. MDA is claimed to have engaged in deceptive conduct in reports related to … Continue reading Mt Emerald Wind Farm and Marshall Day Acoustics Face Court
Wind Farm And Sleep Disruption
"Environmental noises, such as traffic noise, are well known to impact sleep," she says. "Given wind power generation is connected with low frequency noise that can travel long distances and more readily into buildings, it is important to better understand the potential impacts of wind turbine noise on sleep."-Dr Gorica Micic
Living Near Wind Farms Could Damage Your Hearing-2014

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

Wind Farm Noise Guidelines Up For Review.
A new draft of the state's wind farm environmental noise guidelines are open for public consultation to help better address potential noise impacts from multi-stage wind farm developments on people living in close proximity.
Petition: Stop all wind turbine projects until “infrasound” health issues have been investigated.
Petition to help stop all wind turbine projects until the health issues caused by infrasound are thoroughly, independently investigated.
