Too hot to handle? Sierra Club funded publication retracts articles on wind turbine infrasound

Two articles suddenly retracted without notice — are the facts about infrasound too uncomfortable for the former “environmental” organization?

Independent researcher Donald Allen Deever PhD recently found himself on the wrong end of a battle between a magazine editor and the publication’s funding organization, as articles he prepared — at the request of the magazine — were suddenly yanked from publication.

Deever’s “crime”? He outlined research that shows infrasound emissions from wind turbines can be harmful to animals and people. In short, “what you can’t hear, can hurt you.”

Don Deever shared with us the account of what happened to him and his research, as well as the two articles that were not published.

After working without compensation for months to uncover the most revealing, current scholarly studies and thought-provoking news reports on the known health hazards associated with infrasound from industrial wind turbines, a two-part series of articles that was written at the Sierra Club’s request was suddenly retracted from one of their club’s magazines.

Moreover, it was announced that the reason would not be revealed until December. This was a shocking outcome, especially considering that the articles had been the idea of the magazine’s editor, who along with a recruited author had painstakingly scrutinized, double-checked, and triple-checked every one of the extensive sources for the two-part article, and had verified not only the legitimacy of the sources, but also authenticated the interpretation of those reports.

While the first part of the series — which delved into the potential health hazards of infrasound on wildlife, house pets, and farm animals — had been considered a completely acceptable report for months, one week after the second part of the series was published online, which focused on the potential human health hazards of wind turbine produced infrasound, both articles immediately became the target of a mysterious set of “editors” (plural) for a publication that had only an editor (singular) prior to the banning of that series.

Apparently, the compilation of too many eye-opening pieces of evidence of infrasound danger in too little word space may have created too much truth for comfort for some of the Sierra Club’s largest donors, who had purchased their positions as foundation directors, all of whom profit greatly from the promotion of costly and hazardous so-called green energy schemes (see the last portion of this article on how billionaire directors use the Sierra Club as a lobbying front, blatantly exchanging green hype for greenbacks in a well-orchestrated and highly successful scheme to increase their vast corporate profits). Therefore, not only was the article retracted, but a campaign to discredit the two-part report is also currently underway. As Sir Walter Raleigh once put it, “He who follows too closely on the heels of history is likely to get kicked in the teeth.”

The following is an account of the unfolding treachery of the Sierra Club, as documented in the email conversations between the author and the editor of the Desert Report magazine, where the travesty occurred…

Are you listening Ontario?
Stop building Nation Rise.
Stop all existing turbines until proven safe
(hint they are not safe).

Note: These articles were actually printed in their (local?) publication “Desert News” with the words “retracted by editors” on them.
The key point is the articles were printed (text included) and retracted (with grey watermark on the page) on the same day.
What kind of publication prints and immediately retracts the articles?
Like so much else in wind turbines, this does not withstand scrutiny.
