'Independent acoustical and medical professionals(xiii) are satisfied that victims are exposed to airborne pressure waves (sound) and possibly ground borne pressure waves (vibration) to the point which is, for some victims, unbearable and quite clearly cruel, inhuman and degrading treatment'.
'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?
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.

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
The Flinders University is conducting a wind farm noise study and the effects of noise disruption on sleep disturbance by assessing sleep in a controlled laboratory environment.
