Report from Australia – Pay Attention, Dr. Arlene King

Dr. Arlene King also ignored and dismissed evidence

An international federation has slammed a government report which claimed there was “no peer reviewed scientific evidence linking negative health affects with wind farms“.

by Leslie White  Weekly Times Now

The Dean Report by Noise Measurement Services found Waubra resident Noel Dean “has been and is currently adversely affected by the presence and activity of the Waubra wind farm”.

Mr Dean moved out of his house in May last year complaining of chronic headaches and ear damage.

The information in the report “has been submitted as expert evidence” to wind farm hearings and “at no time has the evidence been significantly challenged or rebutted by the wind farm applicant, the consultants or the legal practitioners employed by the applicant(s)”, the report said.

The report attacked the New Zealand wind farm standard (also used in Australia) as neither “adequate” nor “acceptable”.

Mr Dean said residents near wind farms were suffering the same symptoms “worldwide”.

“It’s the Government’s fault, they’ve got to fix it,” Mr Dean said.

Meanwhile the Society for Wind Vigilance – an international group of physicians, engineers and other professionals which argues for “wind turbine guidelines” – has slammed the Rapid Review completed by the National Health and Medical Research Council.

The Rapid Review has been held up by the Victorian Government as proof wind farms do not hurt residents.

The Society said the report was “biased from the outset”.

“The vetting and quality of material cited in the Rapid Review is at best suspect and at times ridiculous … it challenges the World Health Organisation authoritative position that annoyance is an adverse health effect – astounding,” the analysis said.

NHMRC media manager Carolyn Norrie would only say the report’s methodology was discussed in the report.

Victorian Department of Health spokesman Bram Alexander said the department had “full confidence” in the NHRMC and its report.

  1. It’s as if the politicians are living in a weird “cult”, where scientific facts are ignored in favour of a grand delusion that they can “save the world”. Meanwhile the IWT developers are laughing all the way to the bank reaping a “windfall of profits” from the enraptured politicians, paid for by the gullible masses.

    If thirty years ago, you’d written a science fiction story about this, the editors would have rejected it as too unbelievable!

  2. Animal Farm by George Orwell was published originally as a story fir Children.

    Perhaps McGuinty will be so honoured some day by a story of his achievments.

  3. Also published more than thirty years ago:
    “Brave New World” by Aldous Huxley and
    “1984” by the same George Orwell

  4. I would suggest that McGuinty and all his “minions” are being kept inside a “protected bubble” by “Industrialists and eco-religious whackos” who are pumping them full of Green sound bites!

    They don’t want McGuinty and Duguid or others to sway off message and have the unwashed and unclean of Ontario interrupting their Lie Campaign to hose the hell out of taxpayers dollars!

    This is the corruption of a Democracy unlike anything I have ever witnessed in my short lifetime………….when Industry runs the Province then we have a Tyranny!..no other way to explain this

  5. I call them for what they are, “Fascists”, these BANDITS can not be described as anything but;

    – “a form of political behavior marked by obsessive preoccupation with community decline, humiliation or victimhood and by compensatory cults of unity, energy and purity, in which a mass-based party of committed nationalist militants, working in uneasy, but effective collaboration with traditional elites, abandons democratic liberties and pursues with redemptive violence and without ethical or legal restraints goals of internal cleansing and external expansion”, as written by Robert O. Paxton,

  6. “All truth passes through three stages: First, it is ridiculed; Second it is violently opposed; and Third, it is accepted as self-evident.”
    ~Arthur Schopenhauer (1788-1860)

  7. What government and wind industry have pushed forward with is a crime. Those who stood up to say “industrial wind is the way of the future so we have to put up with a bit of inconvenience” are now saying “we now realize it will not work and that industrial wind is not worth any inconvenience” or are hiding and hoping people will forget that they were involved in this scheme. The industrial wind movement used the term “green” to create what they hoped would be an unquestionable faith of greatness. To capture those not too interested in being “green” wind companies added the statement that the wind was “free” to broaden support. They overestimated their ability to control the media and internet to maintain their illusion. What industrial wind did not realize is that they could not buy off or slap gag orders on everyone. Unlike David Suzuki, there are intelligent people of integrity that were interested and quickly figured out the truth of industrial wind. People want what is right and are too well connected for this illusion to last. This industry must be sent packing, not only in Ontario, but anywhere else so ensure it is not brought back in the next generation without demonstrated proof of working within the application. Industrial wind turbines that exist should be properly evaluated as to the cost benefits. Industrial wind turbines should have to provide productive power production vs cost to the environment, human health and consumers. Any industrial wind turbines shown to be inadequate (most if not all of them) should be removed from the system and decommissioned. Decommissioning most likely is a far cheaper solution to both the environment and costs to the consumers than to continue to pay for no gains in power production while destabilizing and increasing costs to our power supply. Continued operation of existing industrial wind turbines will only cost more as they create additional wear and tear on existing generating systems and power supply delivery systems. Decommisioning sends a clear message that industrial wind was a costly mistake.
