Webinar Invitation: Wind Turbine Syndrome - Myths and Facts, Thurs. Feb. 11 at 11am EST

What's below is sponsored by a pro-wind government sponsored "working group" here in Michigan.  Be sure it will be a hatchet job.  May be it's time for the rest of us to show up in force to make a point.  See below and see ya there.  Charlie


Attached is the webinar invitation in .pdf format. Please forward to your wind working groups and any others who may be interested in attending.

Wind Turbine Syndrome: Myths and Facts
Webinar presented by the Great Lakes Regional Wind Energy Institute
 with support from the National Renewable Energy Laboratory
Please join us Thursday February 11th at 11am EST for a discussion of the myths and facts behind wind turbine syndrome and how scientific research is used to both support and deny the claims made.
Attendees will hear experts in sound impacts discuss:
The science of sound;
Overview of wind turbine syndrome;
Published research on sound impacts and how it is used to both support and deny claims of wind turbine syndrome;
How the “nocebo” effect plays a role (A nocebo response occurs when the suggestion of a negative effect of an action leads to an actual negative outcome)
Who should attend?
Local and state government officials
Wind developers
Renewable energy advocates
There will be approximately 30 minutes of presentations followed by Q&A.
W. David Colby, M.D.: Chatham-Kent Medical Officer of Health (Acting); Associate Professor, Schulich School of Medicine & Dentistry, University of Western Ontario

Did anyone tune in to hear this? I was wondering how it went because I couldn't make time that day.... I figure I'll watch the site for a link to the recording hopefully. But, a follow-up by one of us who listened would be nice too!
I attended. Normally there would be 15 or 20 participants. This time there were either 95 or 195, I can't remember which. The regular participants and the organizers knew they were being visited by the opposition. That needs to happen more often. There are lots of online "webinars" put on by the wind industry and their goverment supporters. Those events should be crowded with skeptics. Keep up the good work.

Maine Center For Public Interest Reporting – Three Part Series: A CRITICAL LOOK AT MAINE’S WIND ACT


(excerpts) From Part 1 – On Maine’s Wind Law “Once the committee passed the wind energy bill on to the full House and Senate, lawmakers there didn’t even debate it. They passed it unanimously and with no discussion. House Majority Leader Hannah Pingree, a Democrat from North Haven, says legislators probably didn’t know how many turbines would be constructed in Maine if the law’s goals were met." . – Maine Center for Public Interest Reporting, August 2010 https://www.pinetreewatchdog.org/wind-power-bandwagon-hits-bumps-in-the-road-3/From Part 2 – On Wind and Oil Yet using wind energy doesn’t lower dependence on imported foreign oil. That’s because the majority of imported oil in Maine is used for heating and transportation. And switching our dependence from foreign oil to Maine-produced electricity isn’t likely to happen very soon, says Bartlett. “Right now, people can’t switch to electric cars and heating – if they did, we’d be in trouble.” So was one of the fundamental premises of the task force false, or at least misleading?" https://www.pinetreewatchdog.org/wind-swept-task-force-set-the-rules/From Part 3 – On Wind-Required New Transmission Lines Finally, the building of enormous, high-voltage transmission lines that the regional electricity system operator says are required to move substantial amounts of wind power to markets south of Maine was never even discussed by the task force – an omission that Mills said will come to haunt the state.“If you try to put 2,500 or 3,000 megawatts in northern or eastern Maine – oh, my god, try to build the transmission!” said Mills. “It’s not just the towers, it’s the lines – that’s when I begin to think that the goal is a little farfetched.” https://www.pinetreewatchdog.org/flaws-in-bill-like-skating-with-dull-skates/

For many of us, our little pieces of paradise have been hard won. Did the carpetbaggers think they could simply steal them from us?

We have the facts on our side. We have the truth on our side. All we need now is YOU.
