Greens In Denial: Health Impacts From Wind Turbines Are Real – And Not “In People’s Heads”

The following video is really worth taking the time to watch. It explains clearly how very low frequency sound waves (infrasound) from wind turbines have an adverse effect on some people, making them feel ill. Like the motion sickness that people experience in a car, plane or boat, infrasound sickness results from “sensory conflict” in […]
