Pierpont, Wind Turbine Syndrome — Executive Summary

Dr Nina Pierpont 

These are the findings:

1) Wind turbines cause wind turbine syndrome. We know this because people have symptoms when they are close to turbines and the symptoms go away when they are away from turbines. The study families themselves figured out that they had to move away from turbines to be rid of their symptoms, and nine out of ten have moved. Some sold and some abandoned their homes.

2) People do not abandon their homes out of “annoyance,” and Wind Turbine Syndrome is not a subset of annoyance.

3) The symptom cluster is consistent from person to person, hence the term “syndrome.”

4) The symptoms are sleep disturbance, headache, tinnitus (ringing in ears), ear pressure, dizziness, vertigo (spinning dizziness), nausea, visual blurring, tachycardia (fast heart rate), irritability, problems with concentration and memory, and panic episodes associated with sensations of movement or quivering inside the body that arise while awake or asleep.
