Anrew Orlowski in The Register

Here is a quote from the article:

"Industrial wind installations produce audible and non-audible noise, and optical flicker. But campaigners are fragmented, and face a daunting alliance of big eco-business and government. The academic establishment, which is quick to leap upon public health issues, is strangely inert."

Why is the the academic establishment so slow to pick up on this issue? Can it possibly be because academics are not in fact independent, and need funding from government sources?

Or because there is no health impact. No no no, it can not be that, it must be a conspiracy to cover up the health impacts so we don't hear about them, and to not research the covered up health impacts. That is much more plausible and fits into my 'I don't like wind turbines' world view.
