It is discouraging to see the executive director of the Canadian Association of Physicians for the Environment providing cover for the wind power industry. The environment does not consist merely of landscape but of people.
It is not enough to say that windpower “must be part of our energy mix.” The question is, what part? People are suffering. If Ontario’s chief medical officer of health knows of no scientific evidence “to date” of a causal connection between wind turbine noise and adverse health effects, then he or she is derelict in duty. There is more than enough expert opinion and action in other jurisdictions to warrant an independent investigation.
