Ogrin, Tomas. Letter of Support for Waubra Foundarion, Directed to ACNC
Civil Initiative for the Protection of Senozeska Brda, Slovenia, Europe
Dear Ms. Pascoe,
We (Civil Initiative for the Protection of Senožeška Brda (http://www.senozeska-brda.si/ )) are told that on 11th December, 2014 the ACNC Assistant Commissioner David Locke ruled that the Waubra Foundation was not a Health Promotion Charity, because according to him
“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 ‘vibroacoustic disease”.
We are convinced that Mr. Locke takes a totally incorrect approach and may be misled by the opinions of others (i. e. wind industry lobbyists) that deliberately ignore all the scientific evidence on wind turbine syndrome and vibroacoustic disease. It is not known what he meant by ”no rigorous independent scientific evidence”, since, on the contrary, there is a plenty of rigorous independent scientific evidence, published in several scientific studies (peer reviewed).
Mr. Locke seems to ignore all the evidence and research findings on this issue. For example: ill health effects described and argumented fully in a book written by Dr. Pierpont, a physician, under the title: Wind Turbine Syndrome (2009). It is impossible that he has not heard of scientists and researchers and their findings, i. e. Dr. Kelly, Dr. Swinsbanks, Mr. Huson, Dr. Rauch, Dr. Salt, etc., not to mention the latest Cooper’s study. There is enough scientific evidence that wind turbines cause serious health damage and decrease the quality of life significantly, even if the setbacks are more than 10 km.
Mr Locke also seems to ignore many reports and complaints made by the suffering people all around the world and consequently their serious health damage. They are even forced to leave their homes. Please see also pages www.epaw.org and http://waubrafoundation.org.au/.
Moreover, He does not seem to be aware of a great number of civil initiatives (www.epaw.org, http://www.na-paw.org/,http://www.windwahn.de/index.php/news/media-release/bundesinitiative-vernunftkraft,https://www.illwind.org/,http://stopthesethings.com/,http://www.friends-against-wind.org/,http://stilhed.eu/, http://savetheeaglesinternational.org/,http://wcfn.org/,http://www.gegenwind-bad-orb.de/windkraft-fakten/gesundheitsgefahren/%C3%A4rzteforum/ etc) which are against wind farms due to the ill health effects and also many other reasons, i.e. wind turbines are also technically unimportant in reducing CO2 emissions and will, unfortunately, in no way replace the classic power plants.
In Slovenia there are only two wind turbines; yet more than 4 families (approximately from 850 up to 1000 m away from 2,3 MW Enercon wind turbine) experience the same symptoms as described by Dr. Nina Pierpont. Could these symptoms just be coincidence?
Therefore, we, Civil Initiative for the Protection of Senožeška Brda (http://www.senozeska-brda.si/) give all support to Waubra Foundation, which is gathering facts of the ill effects of wind turbines all over the world. It is doing a great work for all of us who want to get appropriate information on the impact of wind turbines on our health and well-being.
In conclusion, we do need Waubra Foundation as a Health Promotion Charity and do strongly support the work of Sarah Laurie and Waubra Foundation for the benefits of the mankind and animals all around the world. Please, consider the fact that Waubra Foundation IS a Health Promotion Charity and whoever claims otherwise makes a fatal mistake which will impose many adverse health effects on the innocent people only due to the greed of the wind industry.
We suggest that you reject Mr Locke’s decision which ignores a huge amount of scientific evidence including the recent scientific study of Cooper (http://waubrafoundation.org.au/2015/steven-coopers-cape-bridgewater-acoustic-research-commissioned-by-pacific-hydro-released/ )
Furthermore, please watch (1) one of the latest videos where the affected Canadians are telling their horror stories that started with the wind farms (http://en.friends-against-wind.org/films/down-wind-the-truth-about-wind-scam) and (2) the history of discovering low frequency noise and connection to the wind turbine development (http://cdn.knightlab.com/libs/timeline/latest/embed/index.html?source=0Ak2bgr7C0nhPdGR3S1lEekU3T3p4ZDhUNDdRV2Y2ZkE&font=Bevan-PotanoSans&maptype=toner&lang=en&height=650)
