Wind Concerns convenes expert panel on Health Canada study

Following the release of the Health Canada preliminary, non-peer-reviewed summary of the results of its Wind Turbine Noise study on November 6, Wind Concerns Ontario has convened an expert review panel, and will provide comments on the study as soon as further material has been received from Health Canada, and our panel has a chance to review.
In the meantime, the fact is the goal of the study was never to produce an opinion on a causal relationship but simply to “add” to existing research on wind turbine noise and health effects. “It is important to note,” Health Canada says in its public information, “that the results from this study do not provide definitive answers and should be considered along with the other research available…”
The Wind Concerns Ontario review panel consists of several university professors, a physicist, a medical doctor, nurses including a Nurse Practitioner, and specialists in acoustics.

What's your reaction?

    Just $2.1 Billion of our money down the drain for what result?

    The Summary of Results report also states under Preliminary Research Findings:
    • results may not be generalized to areas beyond the sample as the wind turbine locations in this study were not randomly selected from all possible sites operating in Canada;
    • results do not permit any conclusions about causality; and,
    • results should be considered in the context of all published peer-reviewed literature on the subject.

      This is NOT evident in the brochure that is going out to the public. In our meeting with Health Canada, we stressed that as a government agency, that information should be very obvious, and declared on the front panel of the 5-fold brochure they intend to mail out to people in the study areas. To do otherwise will be misleading, and not appropriate for a government department.

    Important Notice
    The Federal Government appears to be on media-website patrol, monitoring this health study. Planning their next move or whatever. Website traffic tracker showing a large amount of Federal Government activity. I am not involved with WCO website, my info comes from a different site. And it is not a big secret, every website has traffic monitoring features.
