Why this petition matters

Started by Paul Swift

Thousands of people are living within 20 kilometres (12 miles) of a wind turbine and they may be suffering from health issues created by "infrasound." Effects include reducing cardiac muscle strength. Infrasound affects the inner ear and the brain and can cause sleeplessness, emotional reactions, and many other distressing symptoms. Infrasound has even been investigated for use as a weapon. Below are just a few of the many  experts who have highlighted the problems. Adults, children and animals are all at risk.

I am asking you to sign this petition to help persuade governments all over the world to stop all wind turbine projects until the health issues caused by infrasound are thoroughly investigated by an independent body. This is a very serious matter that cannot be ignored.

(1) "A five megawatt wind farm would possibly generate a detectable infrasound signal even from a distance of twenty kilometres." Dr. Lars Ceranna, Institute for Geosciences and Natural Resources, Germany

(2) "We can definitely say that under these acute conditions infrasound really does have a distinct effect on heart muscle tissue. Both series of tests have revealed a clear reduction in heart muscle strength.” Christian Vahl is Director of Cardiac, Thoracic, and Vascular Surgery at Mainz University Medical Center.

(3) The pilot study carried out in Satakunta and Northern Ostrobothnia in Finland shows that the damage caused by infrasound from wind power plants will only decrease significantly more than 15 kilometres away from wind turbines." Finnish Association for Environmental Health

(4) "This is a pioneering field of science, still in its infancy and urgently requiring scientists from multidisciplinary areas of study because, ultimately, the health of human populations and their offspring must be protected." Dr. Mariana Alves-Pereira holds a B.Sc. in Physics (State University of New York at Stony Brook), a M.Sc. in Biomedical Engineering (Drexel University) and a Ph.D. in Environmental Sciences (New University of Lisbon)..
