If you shut up truth and bury it under the ground, it will but grow, and gather to itself such explosive power that the day it bursts through it will blow up everything in its way.

Ten years too late, it’s good riddance to wind farms – one of the most dangerous delusions of our age

Christopher Booker UK

"I have been following this (wind turbine) extraordinary story for ten years ever since, in 2002, I first began looking carefully at what really lay behind this deceptive obsession with the charms of wind power. It didn’t take me long, talking to experts and reading up on the technical facts, to see that the fashionable enthusiasm for wind energy was based on a colossal illusion. I first warned about what I called ‘the greatest mistake in our history’ in an article in the Mail almost ten years ago.
I described the claim that it would be the answer to all our future energy problems as a catastrophic failure of judgment. I feared that windpower was stupendously inefficient and ludicrously expensive and that by falling for the greatest energy hoax of our time, the Labour government could be consigning Britain to a very dark future. So unreliable are wind turbines — thanks to the wind’s constant vagaries — that they are one of the most inefficient means of producing electricity ever devised."


"The erection of a wind turbine creates apprehension in the general public, which makes the property less desirable and thus diminishes the prices of neighbouring property...” “Continuing scientific uncertainty over the adverse health consequences of wind turbines only serves to perpetuate the debilitating effect of wind turbines on property prices.”
Ben Lansink, Appraiser

Research linking loud sounds to hearing loss in youngsters is now widespread, resulting in the issuance of warnings to protect
children’s hearing. However, studies attesting to the adverse effects of intrusive sounds and noise on children’s overall mental and
physical health and well-being have not received similar attention. This, despite the fact that many studies have demonstrated that
intrusive noises such as those from passing road traffic, nearby rail systems, and overhead aircraft can adversely affect children’s
cardiovascular system, memory, language development, and learning acquisition. While some schools in the United States have
received funds to abate intrusive aircraft noise, for example, many schools still expose children to noises from passing traffic and
overhead aircraft. Discussion focuses on the harmful effects of noise on children, what has to be done to remedy the situation,
and the need for action to lessen the impacts of noise from all sources. Furthermore, based on our knowledge of the harmful
effects of noise on children’s health and the growing body of evidence to suggest the potential harmful effects of industrial wind
turbine noise, it is strongly urged that further studies be conducted on the impacts of industrial wind turbines on their health,
as well as the health of their parents, before forging ahead in siting industrial wind turbines.
