The Mail on-line has produced a thought-provoking article on the Health effects of wind. Dr. Chris Hanning and Dr. Nina Pierpoint were the first of the medical world to publicise concerns as to the health implications of wind. Read this article now. The Aarthus Covention imposes certain responsibilities on signatory countries as regards Environmental Impact and yet it is fact that the Programmes were not even properly assessed by the Governments themselves, who took at face value the information supplied by the Industry. Aarhus requires proper transparent consultation should drive the decision making. Not as so often happens decision Making is supported by poor consultation. No true medical research ever took place before wind farms were built. In the same way no actual assessment of CO2 or fuel savings was ever done. Governments, panicked by dire protestations of Armegeddon caused by Anthropogenic Global Warming by the IPCC simply signed on the dotted line. We simply don’t really know and the industries denial of such as infrasound and the effect of AM low frequency noise has meant that the UK government has failed in the Precautionary Principle, again enshrined in EU statute, to protect it’s people. The likes of Chris Huhne have a lot to answer to! To complete this post, I would like you to note this comment. “I can tell you that my neighbouring farmer complains to me that since he has had turbines on his land his sheep do not reach market weight. Moles leave the area due to the vibration, bat colonies disappear and hens lay eggs without yolks. My hens did not manage to hatch out a single live chick this year. Animals are afffected. Many people who own racing pigeons are seeing record numbers get lost and not return home. Low frequency noise is not understood by many people but has been recognised as a problem by the government for a long time. The military have used it as a weapon in the past. Just because some members of the public are not being affected they should not discount the fact that others are. – Billy H, Manchester”
May be of interest to any local farmer who is considering a turbine.
