Big Surprise: Wind Turbines Not Evil After All

Your tax dollars at work: Health Canada spent $2.1 million to test the wacky proposition that wind turbines have a negative effect on health.

The result should not surprise anyone who spent a few minutes thinking about it: no ill effects were found.

The only reason why they had to do this study at all is likely due to complaints from wacky wind turbine opponents, such as retired pharmacist Carmen Krogh.

A similar anti-windfarm gambit was tried here in Victoria, Australia. My own thoughts at the time were that if infrasound is detrimental to health, where are all the sick people who drive cars or who swim with whales.

Our Department of Health released a report which dismissed the windfarm syndrome.
