Argument Against Wind

There's been a fair bit of hoopla about wind turbines and whether they affect residents. And i think hoopla is probably an appropriate word.

A CSIRO study finds that a 'vocal minority' who oppose wind farms secure the majority of media and political attention" and that there's a strong support of wind farms from "residents who do not seek media attention or political engagement to express their views".

Meanwhile, experts find that the claims about health effects are dubious and based on no evidence.
