Do they care about the Little People?

This is a very interesting letter from someone who lives in the shadow of the Hunterston offshore turbine built onshore. It was sent to their local MP. Note the photograph from SSE, and in fact all photo from the Renewable Industry, carefully cuts out any view of local residents!

My address is one of the closest to the giant offshore turbine looming over us at Hunterston. I am extremely concerned at the possibility of health issues caused by the known damage infra-sound can do to the brain,and feel we are being used as human guinea pigs in this experiment. Are you aware that in 2013, the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe ruled that the United Kingdom was in breach of article 7 of the Aarhus Convention, in that it had failed to adequately advise the public of the dangers that wind turbines threaten to human health?
I have first hand evidence to support this contention. Two of my close relatives, both Doctors,had to leave their lovely house in North Yorkshire after a wind farm was erected in a field close by,because they were fully aware of the dangers this posed to them and their children. Their house plummeted in value and they lost a great deal of money in making this move. NAC. must be aware that in locating these monster turbines close to habitation they 
are lowering the value of our properties,so this is not only a health issue.
There is a strong possibility that the Westminster government will cut back on the huge grants enjoyed  by wind energy which might herald the death knell of this inefficient form of energy production. The proof of this is that German industry is becoming uncompetitive because wind energy is too intermittent and too expensive. They are now going back to coal fired Power Stations in a big way. 20 under construction I believe. The only thing that keeps Scotland competitive energy wise is our ageing atomic power stations which our leaders want to close down. Until these concerns are answered I think NAC should call a halt to the erection of any more turbines.

Slightly mad. Always believes a cup is half full so continues to tilt at Wind Turbines and the politicians that seem to believe it is their god given right to ruin Scotland for a pot of fool's gold.
