Saskatoon says no health effects from wind turbines



I found this story interesting, especially because it includes direct quotes from Carmen Krogh, member of The Society for Wind Vigilence, a group closely affiliated with Wind Concerns Ontario.  I've underlined Ms. Krogh's comments.

Saskatoon wind turbine project sparks debate over possible health effects;
Canadian Press - Dec 08, 2011
SASKATOON - Saskatoon Light and Power has released reports by doctors and other experts saying there are no health effects expected with the Tall WindTurbineProject.
There have been public concerns expressed about windturbine low frequency sound, or infrasound, and shadow flicker, the visual effect caused by sunlight passing through windturbines.
Company spokesman Kevin Hudson says concerns raised in other parts of the world over windturbines and health are caused by sites with inadequate setback from residences.
But he says at a distance of 300 metres, the sound is no longer perceptible.
He says at the Tall Wind site, the nearest residences are half a kilometre away.
Saskatoon Light and Power admits that it will take nine years for the Tall WindTurbineProject to pay itself off, but says they are projecting $5 million profit on the following 11 years.
The Saskatoon WindTurbine Coalition held a public information meeting earlier this week, bringing in about 100 people.
Researcher Carmen Krogh spoke on the negative health impacts of windturbines.
Krogh classified most of the symptoms under what she called "annoyance," which she says results in stress and sleep problems, among other issues.
There's a sensation that people have a hard time describing, which is an internal vibration or pulsing in the body or different organs," said Krogh.
Krogh admitted that the evidence found in studies "didn't demonstrate a direct link" and acknowledged the scientific view that the symptoms are psychological.
"But that doesn't matter; these are still harmful symptoms," she added.
