Reports and research question wind turbines
THE proponents wishing to install a wind turbine on the North Mole in North Fremantle would be well advised to read a report by Graham Lloyd, the environment editor of The Australian newspaper.
Groundbreaking Australian research has established a “cause and effect” existed between wind farms and health impacts on some nearby residents.
The research was conducted by Dr Paul Schomer, one of the world’s leading acoustical experts.
Dr Schomer is the standards director of the Acoustical Society of America and conducted the research on Pacific Hydro’s Cape Bridgewater Wind Farm.
The report states “we may affect some people” and regulators charged with protecting health and welfare “will not be able to say they know of no adverse effects”.
With this evidence, it should be clear that a wind turbine near residents and work places should not be considered. AlexanderHislop,
