The history of wind turbine noise (not in your imagination)

The wind power development industry and its well-funded lobby group(s) continue to push forward the idea that anyone claiming to experience problems with the noise/infrasound/sensation produced by utility-scale wind turbines is either emotionally unstable, or influenced by “anti-wind groups.”
The current mythology is that with improved public participation, opposition (which really has no foundation) will disappear, or at least diminish.
And then, there are the facts.
Here is a very telling history of experiences with large-scale wind turbines. Note the research done by Nussbaum in 1985, which is relevant today.
See the timeline here.

What's your reaction?

    My wife’s uncle was project engineer on that Boone project. He used to send info and clippings home all the time. Even he said the neighbouring town complained of vibrations rattling the dishes on the shelves, never mind what it was doing to the inhabitants. That was a principle reason for decommisioning the project.

    Please let us know if there is a pdf version of the timeline available for download that (ideally) includes the original documents and excerpted portions.
    Many thanks from pro-health, pro-science, pro-community volunteers
