‘Wind turbine sickness prevented by money drug’

Simon Chapman, a professor of public health at the University of Sydney, has written a scathing critique of the work of US-based paediatrician, Nina Pierpont, the ‘global medical guru for a small movement virulently opposed to wind farms’ whose main claim to fame is writing on the topic of  “Wind Turbine Syndrome”.

Coming as it does on the back of Nina’s recent appearance in the Senate hearings into wind farms, it makes for very timely reading. There are well over a hundred comments on the piece already.

It is published on the ABC Unleashed website.

One thought on “‘Wind turbine sickness prevented by money drug’

  1. I read the article at the ABC site. Overall it’s very good. But his snide remark in the title, “Wind turbine sickness prevented by money drug” misses (or implies) a very important counter to NIMBY approaches to windfarms. The Hepburn Wind model shares the costs and benefits of the wind far with a cooperative group, rather than an individual landowner enriching themselves regardless of neighbours’ feelings.

    I am a big supporter of wind energy but I reckon getting the community behind it, by owning it and benefiting from it, is a good idea too.
