“Health Canada, in collaboration with Statistics Canada, will conduct a research study that will explore the relationship between wind turbine noise and health effects reported by, and objectively measured in, people living near wind power developments.”
WWR interviewed Carmen Krogh and Barbara Ashbee about this development.
Carmen Krogh is a retired pharmacist with more than 40 years of experience in health. She has held senior executive positions at a major teaching hospital, aprofessional association and Health Canada. She was a former Director of Publications and Editor-in-chief of the Compendium of Pharmaceutical and Specialties (CPS), the book used in Canada by physicians, nurses and other health professions for prescribing information on medication. Carmen has written and spoken extensively about the social and health impacts of industrial scale wind turbines. Carmen serves on the Board of Directors of The Society for Wind Vigilance.
Barbara Ashbee and her family were forced to abandon their home when their health suffered after huge turbines were sited too close. Barbara has been advocating for wind turbine victims for years. This week a Superior Court in Ontario ordered Dr. Arlene King, Ontario’s Chief Medical Officer of Health, to testify about her knowledge of the adverse health effects of wind turbines. Shawn and Trisha Drennan are fighting the proposed Kingsbridge II project by Capital Power Corp. to install 150 wind turbines, one of which will be within 650 metres of their farm north of Goderich. Barbara Ashbee has been vocally critical of Arlene King’s position on this issue for years:
“The Ontario Chief Medical Officer of Health (CMOH) released a literature review in May 2010 concluding there are no direct health issues linked to turbines. The developers and government actually use this review to approve new wind projects and they hand out copies at wind meetings but theThe CMOH Dr. Arlene King, was well aware of the serious problems in many wind projects in Ontario before she signed off on the literature review. She was made well aware that families were being made sick with some being forced from their homes and chose not to speak with even one of them. She was warned. …
There is a wall of silence but as the evidence mounts they will have to answer to it at some point. These people are in a position of public trust and their lack of action or even acknowledgment of what they are doing to people is very serious.”
Dr. Sarah Laurie, Nikki Horton, and Stephana Johnston all graciously gave of their time for prerecorded interview that were played during the program.
Wind Association Executive To State Bureaucrats: ‘Delete These Types of Emails’ State derails scientific panel recommendations regarding windmill noise levels
“In an April 25, 2011 email, the head of the Great Lakes Renewable Energy Association advised state employees to delete emails pertaining to a potential recommendation that Michigan’s noise level limit for wind turbines be lowered.”
An amazing tale of what we can only describe as government corruption has emerged in Michigan. WWR spoke to Josh Van Camp to find out more.

WWR will hear all the details when we talk to Bill Heller of noturbine.com. Union Beach has been fighting for years to stop this development.
