"Wind turbines are hazardous to human health"

Read this report on www.windturbinesyndrome

How much longer will the wind power companies continue to minimise the noise problems caused by wind turbines? What remains particularly shocking is the fact that that in most cases there is no compensation made to those who lose the value of their homes.

In this article, mention is made of the fact that infrasound can disturb people living up to 5 kilometres away, as it can travel "greater distances than the sound you normally hear, (which is why elephants and whales use it to communicate.)" (quote)

How can Greenpeace, Friends of the Earth, the Coalition Government, Labour, the Green party, in fact nearly all environmental groups - all of whom are supposed to care about the environment and that natural world - be so much in favour of offshore as well as onshore wind?
