Maine’s Dr. Michael Nissenbaum of The Society for Wind Vigilance is preparing to debate Dr. Robert McCunney on May 6, 2010.
Dr. Nissenbaum has been carrying out a study at Mars Hill in Maine.’Preliminary findings of a controlled study (Mars Hill, Maine) being conducted by Dr. Michael Nissenbaum to investigate potential negative health effects concludes that adults living within 1100 meters of industrial wind turbines suffer high incidences of chronic sleep disturbances and headaches, among other somatic complaints, and high incidences of dysphoric psychiatric symptomatology, compared to a control group living 5000-6000 meters away. This controlled study is a work in progress. http://www.windvigilance.com
