[Comments on Watching the CBC Documentary Film: Wind Rush (Doc Zone)]
Any reasonable, intelligent person watching this film would show concern listening to these doctors’ statements on the negative health effects of large wind turbine. People and animals are going to pay a big price for this madness of pushing ahead and ignoring the growing body of evidence of harmful effects these machines cause.
Dr. Arlene King, Chief Medical Officer of Health for the Province of Ontario, may someday go down in history as an accomplice to big government and big corporate interests. They quote her as rational for denying any health concerns and pushing ahead with further massive wind turbine projects along Lake Huron. Her legacy may be the serious health consequences of the individuals impacted by these turbines.
These machines are a foolish experiment and expensive investment at a time when the evidence of negative health impact is becoming irrefutable. Perhaps the mass of voters in the cities do not care about the few rural people who are and will be paying the price with their health. One would hope they would care even somewhat based upon the foolish rush to waste the taxpayers’ money. At this time other wind options or potential green energy options are available or are being researched without these potential harmful effects.
