Position of the National Institute of Public Health - Poland

The Institute recommends 2 km as the minimum distance of wind farms from buildings." Due to a large number of factors of endangerment to human health. 
  • Taking into account modulation, low frequencies and infrasound levels. 
  • The electromagnetic radiation level. 
  • The probability of sleep disruptions and noise propagation at night. 
  • The occurrence of potential psychological effects. 
  • The shadow flicker effect.
  • And many other effects.
 
 
Have you seen this shocking video where a disabled grandmother confronts the Prime Minister about her hydro bill?
(https://www.facebook.com/TaxpayerDOTcom/posts/10154962614068910) You do not need a Facebook account to view this video.

At a townhall in Peterborough, mother of four and grandmother of three, Kathy Katula, asked Justin Trudeau how he justifies asking her to pay a carbon tax when she only has $65 left every two weeks. Even though Kathy works 15 hours a day, she can’t make ends meet because of her high hydro bills, and can’t afford a carbon tax on top of it all.

The Prime Minister’s response?

“Hydro rates are a provincial responsibility.”

He’s partially right. The Ontario government’s Green Energy Act drove up prices, as did cancelled gas plants and other bad decisions. And the Ontario government’s cap-and-trade carbon tax just kicked in on January 1 and it will drive electricity, gasoline and home heating bills higher.

But the Trudeau government has told the provinces they have to implement cap-and-trade or carbon taxes within 12 months or they will impose one for them. And they plan on hiking it four more times by 2022. This will only make electricity, gas and home heating more expensive.

Politicians just don’t get it. And Ontarians like Kathy are paying the price.

PRESS RELEASE 3rd January 2017 High Court order for families forced from homes due to noisy wind turbines.
 
 
The High Court has issued its order regarding the seven families from Cork who were impacted by noise pollution from a nearby wind farm. A number of the families had to abandon their homes because of the severity of the noise and some lived up to a full 1km from the wind farm.
 
The defendant, Enercon Wind Farm Services Ireland Ltd., has admitted liability and the case is listed for ten days in the High Court commencing 25th April 2017 to deal with damages and costs.
 
The outcome of the April court case could be a watershed for existing and planned wind farms as well as for investor confidence in, and government plans for the future of on-shore wind in Ireland. Many families, similarly affected by noisy wind turbines are anxiously awaiting the outcome and it is expected that more cases will now follow. 
 
There has been a failure of successive governments to regulate the wind industry . Minister Denis Naughten is the latest minister to delay the introduction of regulation. This despite his promise to regulate the distance turbines can be placed from homes within 3 to 6 months of his taking office. Instead, yet another lengthy period of consultation is planned, despite previous consultations on the matter attracting over 7,000 submissions. A spokesperson from Wind Aware Ireland has stated  “This further delay has indicated how far this government are prepared to allow the continuation of a free-for-all in the construction of wind farms, to the detriment of rural communities who are bitterly opposing their construction.”
 
Ireland’s embarked on an all-wind strategy in 2007 under Minister Eamon Ryan in conjunction with Brendan Halligan (chairman of SEAI), who was also a director and shareholder in Mainstream Renewables, one of Ireland’s biggest wind farm developers.
 
No cost benefit analysis (CBA) or strategic environmental assessment (SEA) was ever carried out on the plan. Both of these legally required analyses were sidestepped.
 
To date, these analyses have not been carried out and Ireland proceeds with this expensive experiment. Ireland’s 1400 wind turbines have reduced our CO2 emissions by a paltry 3-4%.
