Check this wind turbine report

Dear Editor;
Have you heard? "Medical research and measurement is urgently needed to be field coordinated along with infrasonic acoustic and vibration testing.
The correlations to nauseogenicity at the 2.5MW power rating and size suggest worsening effects as larger, slower-rotating wind turbines are sited near people." -this comes straight from the researchers of the Shirley Wind Farm.
Have you seen the report? A Cooperative Measurement Survey and Analysis of Low Frequency and Infrasound at the Shirley Wind Farm in Brown County, Wisconsin is on file with the WI PSC. You can find it at Why don't more people care?
Four companies worked together to research low frequency and infrasound from Industrial Wind turbines with one of the researchers experiencing the same symptoms as residents that have had to abandon their homes. Nausea, headaches and dizziness were experienced. Are you subject to motion sickness?
Infrasound acts very similarly. Even if you don't understand all the Hz and Db discussed, you can understand the conclusions. One is listed as "Neighbors reported that at a distance of 3-1/2 miles, they could find relief when turbines were operating" Researchers asked for the wind company's cooperation with turning off turbines for the best results - don't be surprised - the company refused to cooperate. What are they trying to hide. Here's your sign - don't sign contracts giving up your rights to a healthy living. Contact your state legislators and county officials - don't let the Driftless area become an IWT wasteland. The state Wind Citing Council needs to update the old regulations so these new monsters don't drive us from our homes.
