Don’t take our word for it -Do Your Own Research …

We invite you to do your own research and draw your own conclusions as to why the ASA would make such a ruling.

Noise:

Dr Nina Pierpoint, Author of Wind Turbine Syndrome, visit her site WindTurbineSyndrome.com get an extract of her book click here Sample Pages and here for the Executive Summary, also check out all the peer reviews.

If you are heavily into the science of acoustics, you might want to read the definitive NASA report from  Hubbard and Sheppard 13th Feb 2009, (2oMb) click here to download.

And here’s what our own NHS has to say on the subject, click here

House Prices:

Forever? It’s a matter of interpretation.

A recent windfarm planning application was turned down on appeal by the Inspector on the grounds “I have also borne in mind the fact that planning permission is sought for a period of 25 years. However, as such a time period is roughly a third of an average lifetime I have some difficulty in regarding it a “temporary” in any real sense.” – So what is the opposite of temporary? Permanent? Forever? Click here to download the document from the government’s website.

And for more evidence look at the Wind Industry’s own body, the BWEA, which is funded by and represents the interests of the Wind Power developers, and operates a large, well financed PR and lobbying campaign to ensures its views are represented in all government bodies and quangos, take a look at its database of exiting sites and planned developments – just note the number of  second phases, repowering  and extensions.

In summary that is 2759 turbines in current operation with a theoretical maximum capacity of 4,115 MW and another 6,963 turbines with a theoretical maximum capacity of 18,839 MW consented, under construction or in planning.  That’s the equivalent of lining every single motorway covering the whole country with a turbine at every 350 meters.  And based on Scottish Power’s figures you’d need to build 3 ADDITIONAL Drax powerstations to back them up for when the wind doesn’t blow!
