“Exploiting over 800 utility-scale wind turbine installation events in the United States from 2001-2013, I show robust evidence that wind farms lead to significant increases in suicide.”
Whale Infra-Sound Death Watch
“Ocean wind turbine construction is complete off Block Island, Rhode Island. Onshore and offshore wind turbines give off infra-sound.”
Medical testimony of Dr Herb Coussons
“Vibro-acoustic disease has now been autopsy-proven to show soft tissue proliferation, particularly collagen and fibro-elastic tissue that causes heart problems, hypertension, and other physiologic proven findings. This is not isolated to wind turbines.”
