Noise from wind turbines linked to increased use of sleeping pills, Danish study finds

One of those conclusions is a clear link between medicine use and noise levels from wind turbines, said Aslak Harbo Poulsen, a researcher with the Danish Cancer Society. “Our studies have found that there is, certainly amongst older people, a link between wind turbine noise that can be measured outdoors and the likelihood of using a prescription for medicine to treat depression or difficulty sleeping,” Poulsen said.

Neighbors fleeing low-frequency noise from giant wind turbines

Wind Refugees: They can not sleep and want to move or buy new homes to get away from the large wind turbines. Politicians want better protections forthe neighbors and will be reviewing the rules.

The wind industry provides its own rules

The Danish Parliament favours the wind industry to a degree where the constitutional state is weakened. Ida Auken, Minister for the Environment, is so indifferent to facts that in a consultation she delivers 38 wrong answers, including the information that wind turbine noise does not disturb more than noise from any other source, and that the regulations are stricter for wind turbine noise than for any other noise.

Wind Rush

I realized I had a story that was bigger than just the effectiveness of wind energy. You can like it or you can hate it-that isn't the point. What this is about is government and business rushing ahead with new technology without ever making sure it's safe. A car manufacturer would never get away with releasing a new model without extensive safety tests. Same goes for food, appliances-anything. And yet these machines just kept going up, and up, and up.
