"Recently in Ontario, there has been backlash and opposition to wind power. As a leading Canadian environmental organization, Sierra Club Canada sees this reaction as an indication of the need to further evaluate the safety and value of wind turbines and wind farms. After a thorough review of the science we are confident in saying there is no evidence of significant health effects that should prevent the further development and implementation of wind turbines, wind farms and wind energy. In fact, the further development of wind energy as a growing portion of our energy supply will reduce direct carbon emissions, improve the quality of the air we breathe, and generally improve the health and well-being of Canadians, our families and the environment in which we live."
