Lilli-Ann Green and Preston Ribnick prepared this summary of their trip to Australia where they interviewed dozens of people who have been profoundly adversely impacted by industrial wind turbines or are fighting the construction of wind turbines in their communities. Their report can be accessed by clicking the link on this page.
