Wainfleet, Hit Again

Construction impact [OWR] of Wynne Turbines hitting home in Wainfleet [Port Colborne Leader – Read article].

“There is no notice,” said Concession 6 property owner LeaAnne Robins, who has seen construction devastate roadside trees in front of her property. “They’ve massacred all the 80-year-old oaks on the road,” she said, explaining she expects construction of transmission towers to follow the clear cutting.

Construction has repeatedly blocked access at the north end of the road, forcing residents to take long detours.
“The school bus won’t even come down the road,” said Scott Murphy, whose four-year-old son and seven-year-old daughter now have to walk about a half kilometer through a construction zone to catch the bus.
“At one time they had both ends of the road blocked,” said Murphy, adding he is concerned that in an emergency situation first responders may be delayed or even prevented in reaching the area.

In olden days, it was called rape and pillage: rape of the land and pillage of property!
The leader of the gang is the person for whom the IWT’s are named: Industrial Wynne Turbines.

Greed Energy runs roughshod over rights and responsibilities, doing things even Hydro wouldn’t or couldn’t legally do.

MP, Tilson to Health Canada: Canadians at the Mercy of Big Wind.
The MP for Dufferin-Caledon, David Tilson, has written a letter to Health Canada expressing concern about the number of complaints about wind turbine noise.

Health Canada should be doing more, he said in the letter dated September 10, and should “be more forthcoming when it comes to ensuring the health and well-being of Canadians.”

“My constitutents, along with many other Canadians,” he wrote, “are at the mercy of big business in the wind industry, and their powerful lobby, the Canadian Wind Energy Association.”

Senator Calls For Judicial Enquiry

Posted by WCO (Wind Concerns Ontario)

“Nothing short of insanity”

Watch video Senator calls for inquiry

SENATOR BOB RUNCIMAN WANTS TO SEE A JUDICIAL ENQUIRY INTO ONTARIO’S GREEN ENERGY ACT.

 SENATOR BOB RUNCIMAN WANTS TO SEE A JUDICIAL ENQUIRY INTO ONTARIO’S GREEN ENERGY ACT. THE CONSERVATIVE SENATOR WAS ONE OF FOUR SPEAKERS AT A PUBLIC ROUNDTABLE TO DISCUSS THE IMPACT OF CONTROVERSIAL WIND TURBINE PROJECTS IN PRINCE EDWARD COUNTY. AS NEWSWATCH’S MORGANNE CAMPBELL REPORTS, THE SENATOR SAYS IT’S TIME PEOPLE STOP THE GREEN ENERGY MADNESS.
Whether you like them or not, wind and solar panel farms are going up in an area near you. The Liberal government is approving wind and solar farms across the province, most recently here on Amherst Island.

“They continue to approve these wind turbines, they’re doing it in Prince Edward County, they’re doing it on Amherst Island, they’re doing it in Addington Highlands, they’re doing it all across South Western Ontario, it’s not providing a reliable source of electricity and an affordable source.”

The Green Energy Act and the province’s Hydro policy were slammed during a public meeting hosted by MPP Todd Smith in Prince Edward County. About fifty concerned residents from across the region attended the roundtable discussion where Senator Bob Runicman talked about the steps anti-wind turbine groups could take to quash the act …like challenging it in a court of law and calling for a judicial inquiry.

“I think we’ve got to find ways to raise funds to be able to do this and at the very least try and delay it until the next provincial election and hopefully we’ll have a change in government with a different approach.”

Parker Gallant, a writer with the Financial Post and Green Energy Act critic says electricity costs are forcing people to make a tough choice, heat or eat.

“We have just a mess in our electricity sector it’s probably the most complex in all of North America.”

“It’s nothing short of insanity but they continue down that path and we have to fight them with every possible tool available.”

Smith says the green energy act is to blame.

“It’s taken Ontario from having the lowest cost electricity to the highest in North America in just a couple of years.”

“And it’s not only affecting homeowners. Goodyear decided not to expand it’s Napanee location. One of the reasons…rising electricity costs.  A recent report from the Ontario Chamber of Commerce suggests that one in 20 Ontario Businesses will close their doors in the next five years due to rising electricity prices.”

Quote of the Decade
“The trouble with wind farms is that they have a very large spatial footprint for a piddling little bit of electricity. You would need 800 turbines to produce the output of a coal-fired power station.”
Sir Martin Holgate, Chief Scientist at the Department of the Environment of the British Government – October 2004

Important Website(s)

WIND VICTIMS ONTARIO is a very important website for information on the adverse effects of Industrial Wind Turbines.

Go here for the latest video testimony: Latest testimony, especially poignant is Nikki’s video testimony: spent $100,000 on her house in Chatham-Kent adding insulation to block out NOISE; property taxes doubled as a result and the house is unsellable.

As a result, Nikki, started her own blog, My Next Door Neighbour is a Wind Turbine. The sites are well worth your visit.

INFRASOUND: NASA Knew Along

Stop These Things brings us news about the depth and breadth of the three decades of wind industry conspiracy to cover up the truth about IWTs and Infrasound (aided and abetted by the Ontario Government these latter years).

[quote] Starting in the early 1980s, a decade’s worth of research was undertaken by NASA into a series of large wind turbines (then being developed by NASA), which included a stellar cast of physicists, meteorologists, geophysicists, seismologists, engineers (both mechanical and acoustic), and psycho-acousticians. Part of that research involved a multidisciplinary effort to identify the causes of complaints made by neighbours in relation to the operation of those turbines: we refer to it as “the NASA research”, which also included work carried out by Neil Kelley.
[quote] In 1987, at a wind power conference in San Francisco, the wind industry was presented with the findings of NASA’s research; and told that these findings meant that dB(A) was an inappropriate method of measuring wind turbine noise, and the impact of that noise on neighbours. It was further told that low-frequency noise and infrasound were the dominant features of wind turbine generated noise, which would cause significant “annoyance” to neighbours.

The STT post continues to outline the symptoms associated with Infrasound (we know what they are, but not the Ontario government at the behest of wind developers).  The post continues to outline the Wind Industry cover up of the NASA findings.  That Industry sought to create its own Noise Guidelines in order to facilitate turbine development, and eventually sought to raise noise limits to higher dB levels so that larger and larger IWTs could be built.  The STT post links to a Timeline to illustrate the NASA research:
[quote] Each page of the TIMELINE gives a short run down of significant events (a headline and brief summary); contains images of key data or pages extracted from research papers referred to; some of those images are copies of the entire paper being referred to – these documents can be accessed for reading and printing by dragging your mouse over the image and clicking on the “pop out” window at the top right of the image (you will see a scroll-bar on those where a paper is reproduced). Below the images you will find links to papers, webpages, including the sources referenced and STT posts, for example (if the link does not work, simply copy and paste the URL into a fresh tab in your browser).

The World Comes Full Circle:[quote] The recent research that confirms the extensive work done by NASA, includes work carried out by:
Dr Paul Schomer, George Hessler, Rob Rand and Dr Bruce Walker at Shirley, Wisconsin in 2012 (available here);
Professor Colin Hansen and his team from the Adelaide University at Waterloo in South Australia during 2014 (see our post here); and
the groundbreaking research conducted by Steven Cooper at Cape Bridgewater in Victoria, also during 2014 (which has been recently published – see our posts here and here).
[links are in the original post].

CONCLUSION: the Original NASA research verified and expanded by recent research proves the Wind Industry’s Noise Guidelines are, IRRELEVANT.

It’s an “outright ban on infrasound”

That’s the nub of Suncor’s objection to the Plympton-Wyoming new Noise by-law (see Noise By-Law) Feb. 09/15 post. OWR reports on Suncor’s latest reaction on the by-law and its objections to Council. As reported by the local newspaper Suncor wants the noise by-law axed; the report says they want most of it axed, which means all of it because axing anything, especially the Infra-sound portion would make it a useless regulation. Suncor’s submission to council contains laughable phrases, such as the one in the title of this blog post, and the equally risible reference to “industry standards”.

Again, Municipalities wake up to this reaction from Suncor! No, it will not stop development but it will impose strict regulation of sound and infra-sound. Plus, developers will have only a year from a by-law’s coming into effect to complete projects that will fall outside the regulation. In a large development, that could be quite a restriction on construction. Any court challenge will deal with measuring standards, so town councils will have to find these. They exist.

If Quebec can do it?

Why not Ontario!
Quebec Bans Turbines within 2km, blogged on windturbinesyndrome.com to illustrate the need for such a setback or an even greater one.

In the next Appeal of setback by-laws or any appeal on noise, health issues, this fact should be front and centre.

In fact, it’s a good point to be made over and over again in letters to the Premier, her Ministers and Liberal MPPs: why does the jurisdiction next door think it’s wiser to limit setbacks to 2km from houses and 1km from public roads than to set them at Ontario’s laughable 550m?  Do they know something that Ontario will not admit to?  And why can’t Ontario now make the same rule for prospective turbine developments?
