Senate Committee Calls To Study the Health Effects of Wind Turbines
A Senate Committee has called for an urgent independent study of the health effects of wind turbines after it presented its report in Parliament.
Chairperson of the Committee, Greens Senator Rachel Siewert, said that they have found that people who live near windfarms suffer from harmful health effects. She added that these health complications were not essentially related to the noise or vibration of wind turbines.
She also said that wind power is a very expensive renewable source of energy and there are a number of renewable sourced available which are comparatively cheaper.
Ms. Siewert said, “We are saying that there's not enough information, but that people that are feeling possible adverse health effects, it could be related to other factors, and we had a lot of evidence around stress associated with location of windfarms”.
The report revealed by the Senate Committee has recommended that planning bodies must compute the potential low frequency noise impacts and indoor vibrations from nearby windfarms. The study will help in eliminating the adverse health effects of wind turbines to people.
The Liberal Senator, Judith Adams, from WA said that the new wind farms should be stopped.
