5/27/10 Regarding Wind Siting Council's Dr. McFadden's presentation on impacts of wind turbine noise on human health
"Evidence does not support the conclusion that wind turbines cause or are associated with adverse health outcomes"
-Dr. Jevon McFadden, Extended Report, Page 74
NOTE FROM THE BPWI RESEARCH NERD:
As we begin our closer look at Wind Siting Council member Dr. McFadden's presentation regarding wind turbine impacts on human health, we note a reference to this paper authored by Wolfgang Babisch (among others) about annoyance and noise:
Annoyance due to aircraft noise has increased over the years–results of the HYENA study. Environ Intl. 2009;35:1169-1176.
It is interesting to note that Dr. McFadden does not reference any of the following papers by the same author regarding noise and human health. Babisch is a senior research officer at the German Federal Environmental Agency. His research focus is on noise epidemiology, particularly the auditory and nonauditory health effects of noise. He is a member of the International Commission on Biological Effects of Noise.
