Here are a couple of snippets from recent posts on our blog:

The Australian Medical Association does not believe in wind turbine syndromeThe Australian Medical Association (AMA) released a statement on Monday regarding Wind Farms and Health where it discusses its position on ‘wind turbine syndrome’. Professor Geoffrey Dobb, AMA Vice President and Chair of the AMA Public Health Committee said, “The available Australian and international evidence does not support the view that wind farms cause adverse health effects.” Professor Dobb goes on to say, “From a public health perspective, it is important to note that electricity generation by wind turbines does not involve the production of greenhouse gases, other pollutant emissions or waste, all of which can have significant direct and indirect health effects.”

Wind energy saves the day in Texas this weekIn Texas, wind energy saved the day and warmed the houses of many Texans when fossil-fuel plants shut down due to weather-related issues on Monday.

Wind turbines were able to provide about 1800 MW of energy, which was just enough electricity to avoid power outages in the state. A similar scenario happened back in 2011, when demand for electricity peaked with escalated temperatures.

Oddly enough, despite wind energy coming to the rescue, some naysayers are taking this opportunity to downplay the benefits of wind. Adam Sinn, a Houston-based independent energy trader said, “It’s a nice story for wind, but it’s scary that they are relying on it in emergency situations… I think wind should be looked at as a buffer and that the grid should always have fossil fuel resources to prevent an event.”
