Wind Turbines Are Evil?

It can cause sleep disorders, difficulty with equilibrium, headaches, childhood “night terrors” and other health problems.

Yes, I’m talking about wind turbines. Or at least that’s what Dr. Nini Pierpont says.

Dr. Nina Pierpont of Malone, N.Y., coined the phrase “wind turbine syndrome” for what she says happens to some people living near wind energy farms. She has made the phrase part of the title of a book she’s written called “Wind Turbine Syndrome: A Report on the Natural Experiment.” It is scheduled for publication next month by K-Selected Press, of Santa Fe, N.M.

Is there some merit to this? I have no idea. I’m not a doctor and I did NOT stay in a Holiday Inn Express Last night. Could be a case of NIMBY, I dunno….

    I could understand low flying geese would have nightmares about wind turbines, but children? Eh, we’ve got bigger things to worry about than this.

    How soon will it be until Rush Limbaugh picks up on this in his tirades against renewable energy?

  3. Doug says:

    Great, now there are countless numbers of dirtbag slip n fall lawyers on their way to homes of people who live near wind farms to act as Erin Brockovich of the Wind Farm.

  4. Bunzy, I’m not a ditto head or anything, but Rush isn’t really against renewable energy as much as he’s against the people who think we can stop looking for oil, turn off our coal plants and ignore nuclear power and just use these renewable sources. We’re decades away from that. Currently things like turbines and solar are more expensive per kW hour (or however they measure it…) then our old school sources. If the market can’t come up with a replacement for gas when it is at $4 a gallon, then the replacement doesn’t exist and we are silly to not use all the resources we can while we wait.

  5. BGunzy says:

    True dat about Rush – Alternative energy is just that – alternative. It is not ready to replace our petroluem based energy sources cost effectively at this point. The thing about Rush is that will at times pick at alternative energy in an effort to show how flimsy it is right now (in his opinion).

    For some, alternative energy is closer than others. I could probably convert my farm to B100 or even straight vegetable oil in about a year if I had to. It might be tougher to do if one lived in New York City, however.

    I’ve got a country property with 14 wind turbines within 10km of the front door that you can visit. If you stay in the house for a week and feel no effects, I’ll eat my words.

    Nice post. Looks like wind power is really starting to get some serious consideration in Australia now.
