Wind Gets Clean Bill of Health from Ontario

 Ontario's chief medical officer of health has released a new report saying there is no evidence that wind turbine sound causes adverse health effects.


The Ontario finding appears to be in accord with the findings of a scientific panel convened by AWEA and the Canadian Wind Energy Association (CanWEA) to review the existing literature on wind turbine sound and health.


While we are not surprised, it's good to hear yet again that wind energy, which we know has substantial positive effects on human health through displacing air toxics and other harmful emissions of fossil fuels, does not have unsuspected harmful impacts.
