hepburn-wind-farmAt the turn of the decade, the anti-wind lobby escalated its campaign of exaggeration, cherry-picking, and scare tactics.

The orchestrated scare campaign surrounding the alleged health impacts of wind energy created confusion among communities, and in some cases divided them.

The impact of the anti-wind campaign has been documented by University of Sydney Professor of Public Health, Simon Chapman.

One study conducted by Chapman and colleagues found that of the 32,677 people living within 5km of Australia’s wind farms, just “…120 – or one in 272 – of them have ever made formal complaints, appeared in news reports or sent complaining submissions to government.”
