Getting the wind up: exploring concern about the adverse health effects of wind turbines in Australia and Europe

This report, "Getting the wind up: exploring concern about the adverse health effects of wind turbines in Australia and Europe", by Neil Barrett of the Mount Alexander Sustainability Group, looks at the difference in the level of concern about adverse health effects from wind turbines in Australia, Denmark and Germany. In Denmark and Germany, where wind turbines are very common, there is hardly any debate, whereas in Australia the claims made by anti-wind groups threaten to bring the industry to a standstill. By providing evidence of the lack of concern about health effects in Europe, this report casts further doubt on the validity of "wind turbine syndrome".
