More wind turbines on the horizon

by Jonathan Jenkins, Toronto Sun
You don’t need a doctor to know which way the wind blows, the turbine friendly government of Ontario says. Wind turbines do not cause any direct health effects, a study done for the government by engineering firm Howe Gastmeier Chapnik Limited, has found. But the giant towers can produce enough noise to annoy some people, and that annoyance could affect their health. Read article

  1. Oh my God….when will this ever end? I can hardly type any more letters to editors…..someone puleeze help educate.
    And yet another Christmas goes by without decorations or a tree up fighting these SOB’s.
    Please keep the displaced and sick families in your hearts this season. It is a horrible situation they are in. Some haven’t been able to have Christmas in their home for 4 years.

  2. Can you just picture these bullies?… all polished up, families by their side for the holidays, going to church singing about goodwill towards men, idolized for their status in the community.

    Well, guess what?
    We can make miracles happen…….just you wait and see.

  3. If you go to the engineering firms website, Mr. Howe
    is a consultant/guest speaker for both CanWEA and
    the provincial government. Could that mean that this
    study may be biased? Say it ain’t so.

  4. Always that special disclaimer of “direct” health effects.
    What about the indirect effects?

    From Wikipedia…

    Indirect effect describes a situation where national courts are required to interpret national law in line with an unimplemented or badly implemented directive, as opposed to ignoring national law in preference to the directive as occurs when direct effect is invoked.

    What a NOVEL idea!
