3. John Zakula is now in his seventh year of enduring the nuisance. The noise is so bad for him that he has bricked in his bedroom window and takes to sleeping in his car when he just cannot endure another night of sleeplessness. Mr Zakula — a qualified engineer — has meticulously logged the noise disturbances from the wind turbines year after year. But no matter how many letters he sent reporting the noise and deaf to the messages Mr Zakula left on the Defendant’s phone hotline complaining of the noise, the Defendant has not curtailed a single turbine in response to Mr Zakula’s particular complaints. Nor has it repaired the faulty gearboxes which affected its turbines, despite knowing of tonality defects for years and years.
10. …..First, there is evidence that nineteen neighbours were affected in a similar fashion to the Plaintiffs2 (Contrary to the Defendant’s Submissions,3 Mr Soler was one of the persons whose ability to sleep was affected.) Seven of those neighbours gave evidence in the proceeding. They presented as witnesses of ordinary fortitude. It was not put to them that they were hypersensitive. Save in the case of Mr Jelbart 4 it was not even put to them that their opposition to the wind farm might have affected their perception of the noise. On the balance of probabilities, it should be accepted that the seven neighbours’ evidence illustrated the effect of the wind farm noise on ordinary people. It is clear from the Plaintiffs’ lay witnesses and the complaints in the Defendants’ records that the Defendant’s turbines tend to be so noisy that they annoy neighbours during the day and frequently wake them up at night, particularly in cooler weather.

Wind turbines are not going to do anything to improve the levels of CO2 in our atmosphere. This brilliant article explains why!
This wonderful poem, expresses the sadness felt, at witnessing the destruction of rural Australia, for the sake of greed, then covered up with lies. The same disgusting travesty is happening world-wide!
http://stopthesethings.com/2013/12/02/colleen-watts-stt-champion-drops-tony-abbott-a-line/ The Australian’s have some feisty wind-warriors, that Crocodile Dundee himself, would have been proud of. Wind weasels in Australia, are on the endangered species list!
Now, if only we could get some decent, sensible, honest politicians, to rid our communities of wind weasels, starting right here in the province of Ontario!

Paul Calandra, parliamentary secretary to Prime Minister Stephen Harper, issued a statement this week commending the move by Australia’s recently elected Prime Minister Tony Abbott.
“Canada applauds the decision by Prime Minister Abbott to introduce legislation to repeal the carbon tax,” the statement reads.
“The Australian prime minister’s decision will be noticed around the world and sends an important message.”
The Conservatives have used the carbon tax issue to great effect domestically. The government has long accused the Opposition NDP of wanting to impose “a tax on everything,” a claim NDP Leader Tom Mulcair has vehemently denied.
The Conservatives campaigned successfully against Liberal Leader Stephane Dion and his “Green Shift” policy in the 2008 election, using the same “tax on everything” line. Dion’s plan, which included a carbon tax, was derided by Harper as a cash grab and was rejected by voters at the polls.
