“In my expert opinion, from my knowledge of sleep physiology and a review of the available research, I have no doubt that wind turbine noise emissions cause sleep disturbance and ill health.”
Leading British sleep specialist, Dr. Christopher Hanning, explains the profound repercussions of wind turbines disrupting sleep—a matter the wind turbine salesman at your last town meeting, along with the wind industry in general, refuse to acknowledge, much less address in any realistic manner. Having reviewed a considerable body of clinical evidence (Note: Wind salesmen and Acousticians are not Clinicians), Hanning calls for setbacks of at least 1.5 km (1 mile). Nina Pierpont, MD, PhD, would consider that inadequate. She calls for 2 km = 1.24 mi.
