Against the drone of wind turbines on the ridgeline, nameless, faceless, residents speak out.
Warning: This video is disturbing. This video shows a flock (dozen) of partridges which were pressed on the base of a wind turbine. The partridges flew with a tailwind over an elevated plain. It was impossible for the birds to dodge the wind turbine.

“You cannot smell it, you cannot see it, and you cannot really hear it but maybe it still drives some people crazy.” This powerful news story from Spiegel TV Magazine explores wind turbine infrasound impacts on people. English subtitles added by Friends Against Wind.
Wind turbine noise from various wind energy facilities in Australian. After watching this video there should be no confusion over why the federal government initiated hearings on the topic on health impacts.
Dramatic images of a turbine burning near Sublette Illinois.
In Germany, wind turbines have turned countryside sites into industrial areas. Do we want the same in our country? English subtitles by Friends against wind. Video made by the citizen's group Weitblick Ostfriesland: http://weitblick-ostfriesland.de
Neighbors get some relief after complaining about noise emitted from a nearby wind turbine.
Iberdrola Renewables' Streator Cayuga Ridge South Wind Power Project located in Livingston County, IL experienced a catastrophic failure at one of the 150 Gamesa G87 2.0 MW turbines. Illinois residents caught the fire on video.
A turbine at Iberdola Renewables Farmers City wind project was destroyed by flame. This short video was taken approximately 30-45 minutes after the fire reportedly started.

In this video, Jorge Arenas states that “low frequency can be transported a lot of miles from the source to the receiver.” “So low frequency noise is very difficult to reduce and to control and to mitigate.” Arenas, a faculty member in the Universidad Austral de Chile’s College of Engineering Sciences, is director of its Institute of Acoustics. He will be a collaborating with Virginia Tech’s Ricardo Burdisso, a professor of mechanical engineering in Blacksburg VA. The collaboration announced on March 30th, will include an analysis of health effects at a wind project in Chile. Andrea Brunais reported this piece for “Outreach and International Affairs,” a production of Virginia Tech.
