Gallandy-Jakobsen, G. To ACNC in Support of Waubra Foundation
…more and more Danish doctors, vets and lawyers are fighting for their patients and clients… There are physicians’ associations in Germany, Austria and France that are fighting for the human rights of wind turbine neighbors.
Dear Commissioner Pascoe
I am writing to you from Denmark because I am very concerned about the situation of the Waubra Foundation after Mr. David Locke’s statement about Dr. Sarah Laurie’s work for the Waubra Foundation:
“…to date there has been no rigorous independent scientific evidence that finds that the ill health complained of is caused by the physiological effects from wind turbines nor that there are human diseases called “wind turbine syndrome” or “vibroaucoustic disease”.
This statement has it’s own and very special logic and the Danish families, who try to to get help from the ministries and authorities, know this kind of language very well. It means: We don’t want to invest money in ill persons, who became ill after living near wind turbines. We rather want to spend money to uncover how the wind industry could be more successful to raise wind turbines without the rural communities’ protests. (Wind2050 project in Denmark, paid of the taxpayers). Protests and doubts and bad cases would damage this industry. This is about money. The wind turbines are extremely expensive, the people are not. They can move. Or the wind industry can use a new Danish strategy, invented by the Scandinavian energy provider Vattenfall in a northern region in Jutland: At this place Vattenfall intends to buy a whole village in order to destroy the homes. The word “wind turbine refugee” has found it’s way to Danmark: “Vindmølleflygtninge” are mentioned in the media and in the Danish parliament’s documents. To remove humans is the smoothest way to prevent them from illness. Vattenfall is about to see a case in court this year in the community Holbæk, where 40 humans, adults and children, became ill because of huge Siemens wind turbines. More than 25 homes are abandoned in this area now. It is the first place in Denmark, where real and honest noise measurements inside the houses will take place this year. This is very exceptional, but the very serious health problems are very difficult to hide any longer.
In the meantime more and more Danish doctors, vets and lawyers are fighting for their patients and clients. Many people have tried to get help from the parliament, their names are easy to find in the Folketinget’s homepage ft.dk, under the word “vindmøller”, where the dreadful stories about adults and children and animals are documented. The Danish mink case from 2014 is a very special scandal in the community of Herning in Jutland. It is so obvious that animals’ reactions could never be described as a psychological effect. That must be the reason why there are not even scientific tests with animals. The results of such tests would be impossible to refute. Denmark is waiting for the first cases in court in this year 2015 — concerning humans and animals in two communities.
Dr. Sarah Laurie is one of the most courageous among the physicians in the world, who help desperate families in the vicinity of wind farms. There are — not yet — any authorities who dare to consider the very serious situation for their very own countries’ citizens. There are physicians’ associations in Germany, Austria and France that are fighting for the human rights of wind turbine neighbors.
In Denmark there are many people who have been forced to move from their homes and actually there are lawyers at work to defend their clients’ civil rights. These families’ doctors have asked their patients to leave their homes, because there is no cure for vibroacoustic disease.
Families in the whole world need their trusted own physicians to protect them from the incredibly powerful wind industry and their supporters in politics and many huge organizations. I hope that the Waubra Foundation will be able to continue helping rural families through the valuable and caring work of Sarah Laurie.
