Report: Wind Turbine Noise NOT Harmful To Health

The American Wind Energy Association has released a report that says that the noises produced by wind turbines are not health threatening. The report disputes that the frequencies of the produced turbine noise are lesser compared to the level normally heard in cities and metropolitan environments.

The study was conducted by a panel of acoustical experts, audiologists and medical doctors from Canada, the US, the UK and Denmark brought together by the Canadian Wind Energy Association. The group has concluded that the huge majority of the people living near and around the 50,000 European wind turbines and over 30,000 North American turbines have had no odd experiences.

Robert McCunney, a research scientist and physician at MIT, said that there is no substantial evidence to link that the sound produced from neither the turbines nor its vibrations have any direct psychosomatic effect on humans.
