Testimony, Donald Thomas, Waubra, Senate Inquiry into Wind Farms

Some Days I Experience Headaches So Severe I have to Abandon My Farm Work

Submission to The Social & Economic Impact of Rural Wind Farms
Australian Federal Senate Inquiry 2011

I have been suffering adverse health effects since the wind farm started to operate, working between clusters of turbines approximately a kilometer away and hundreds of feet above the valley where my farm is situated. Some days I experiences headaches so severe I have to abandon my farm work.

Other symptoms are pressure in the ears, high blood pressure and my heart starts beating really fast like I have been running. These symptoms may occur even with little or almost no noise from the turbines, they just have to be going.
