Federal government to fund Windsor hum research

Another sound “annoyance” is being investigated more thoroughly due to federal government funding.

With a general idea of the “where,” pinpointing the mysterious “what” that’s causing the Windsor hum might become a reality thanks to some local research expertise and funding from the federal government.
On Monday, Bob Dechert, parliamentary secretary to Minister of Foreign Affairs John Baird, came to Windsor to announce the government’s plan to fund a $60,000 research project that will help figure out what is causing the strange l0w-frequency noise that has been plaguing the city’s west end since the spring of 2011.
“We want to protect citizens’ quality of life,” Dechert said. “This study is a step in the right direction.”

Hey guys — you left out the best part… This is the “Gene Guy”..

The 10-month study will be led by University of Windsor mechanical
engineering Prof. Colin Novak and Western University physics and
astronomy Prof. Peter Brown.

Building on a previous investigation by Natural Resources Canada,
Novak and Brown will use sophisticated instruments to map out the hum
and its frequencies to figure out just where it’s coming from and what’s
causing it.

The result will be “more and better” data than that collected by the
Natural Resources Canada investigation last year, which used seismic
equipment to determine that the hum’s source appeared to be in the area
of Zug Island, Novak said.

Maybe he will find a genetic link — and develop a vaccine… I can hardly wait till the Japanese Doctor/Engineer appears on the scene.

At least somebody noticed though… that’s the good part. Surely they could have found someomen more qualified and perhaps a tad less “biased”…

If we use Dr. Colby’s logic, a sound that nobody can hear, can’t possible cause anyone any problems, right? According to people like Mike Barnard, this is just another incident of mass hysteria brought on by the people who raise the issue and talk about it and get everybody riled up and then convince other people that it is “real”.
More evidence that low-frequency sound actually affect animals – including the human species.

It is the US Steel plant on Zug Island. The gov’t already knows this and is just screwing around.
