This weekend a group of people from around the world are coming together to speak the truth in Falmouth, MA at the Public Library this Saturday, November 10, from 1 to 4 pm. Two Windwise volunteers have organized this meeting, the Falmouth Conference on Human Rights. On a budget of nothing, they have assembled an internationally recognized group of speakers. What the speakers all have in common is that they use facts, data, and science to challenge the claims of the wind industry that industrial wind turbines do not pose harm to human health or property values.
Dr. Sarah Laurie from Waubra, Australia, Dr. Nina Pierpont from New York State, and Carmen Krogh from Ontario, Canada will be speaking at this conference. They are three compassionate health professionals who have treated, interviewed, and listened to people who live in close proximity to turbines and who have suffered ill health as a result. All three have been heavily criticized for their work by both the wind industry and its supporters. To me, and to many others who are coming to the conference, they are heroes.
Their work is part of a growing internationally recognized body of work that includes the newest peer-reviewed epidemiological study confirming the relationship of wind turbine proximity to ill health by Jeff Aramini of Canada, Dr. Michael Nissenbaum of Maine, and Dr. Chris Hanning, a sleep specialist from England. It is published in the current issue of Noise and Health.
