Just like the kid at the carnival, who vomits on the rides, the victims of wind are NOT faking it!
The bi-annual Wind Turbine Noise Conference was held in Denver, in August 2013. The conference is hosted by ICEN: Europe (International Institute of Noise Control Engineering) and looked at 79 research papers about wind turbine noise around the themes of:
- Low frequency noise and infrasound: Measurements and effects
- Amplitude modulation
- Effects of WTN on individuals
- Sound Imission and Emission Measurements
- Structure-borne Noise/Vibration
- Propagation Wind Effects Modelling
- Regulations & Policies.
A few of these papers are now in the public domain – one of them is the work of Paul Schomer – one of America’s leading acoustic experts – and a band of others, including medical researchers – aimed at reaching an understanding as to why a significant proportion of wind farm neighbours suffer motion-sickness like symptoms. The opening summary of the paper says:
For at least four decades there have been reports in scientific literature of people being made…
