Low Frequency Noise – for Beginners (like me)

History Repeats

In a previous blog I spoke about the Portuguese Supreme Court ordering the removal of four turbines after the dramatic effect on a family’s health.

This is the lead researcher doing a well-explained presentation on the investigation that they conducted.

  1. Dr. Alves-Pereria manages to express a complex subject with unambiguous clarity. Be sure to read the full study, Low Frequency Noise-Induced Pathology: Contributions Provided by the Portuguese Wind Turbine Case, presented in June at EuroNoise 2015 in Maastricht, The Netherlands. The work done on ILFN by the Waubra Foundation and Lusófona University make a compelling case for public protection measures to be mandated by the Department of the Environment in Ireland. It is Minister Alan Kelly’s opportunity to show by his actions that the current administration prioritises the health of its citizens over that of commercial lobbyists.
