It seems that no matter how many credible, professional, peer-reviewed studies, and documents they receive, the wind industry, and the government, refuse to acknowledge the truth. They simply want to avoid responsibility, as in everything else, the wind pushers want a free pass. They wind industry is not to be trusted, they are a faux-green, money machine, and they will bankrupt our province, if we do not stop them….NOW!
University of Waterloo Research Chair
The attached commentary is public and may be shared.
There seems to be a lot of interest in the results of the University of Waterloo Research Chair study on IWT health effects.
Attached is a commentary which indicates the social and perceptional circumstances regarding industrial wind development in Ontario.
These circumstances are based on reports from rural residents.
Reports of IWT related health effects are international in scope. Some of the circumstances being reported in Ontario may be similar in other jurisdictions.
It is unclear whether the Ministry of Environment will react to the evidence available and the statistically significant results reported by the University of Waterloo study.
It remains to be seen if the MOE will respond by invoking prevention and precaution, and whether there will be a pause before approving more IWT projects.
Those reporting health issues in operating projects should not be forgotten and should be given remedy as soon as possible.
If you would like a copy of the poster which reported the study results, please let me know.

Advertising Standards Authority says windfarms can’t be advertised as producing no health effects

At the time of writing Scottish Power appear to have removed the claim from their web site:
