Seminar on Wind Turbine Noise

(Glasgow 22 sept 2017)


We are delighted to inform you that Professor Mariana Alves and Dr. John Yelland are coming to Glasgow to the Radisson Blu Hotel on Friday 22nd September from 7pm to 10pm:

Please join us at this important seminar on Wind Turbine Noise at:

 Seminar Introduction:

The noise from wind turbines built close to homes may cause their occupants irritation and distress, but cannot possibly explain the serious adverse health effects that many communities are now experiencing. These include vertigo, nausea, fatigue, pounding in the head or chest, nose bleeds. There is already abundant evidence that the true cause of such symptoms is not the audible turbine noise at all; it is the very high levels of infrasound emitted by the turbines. The wind energy industry consistently denies this, and claims that wind farm neighbours allow the intensity of their dislike of turbines due to "non-acoustic factors" to psychologically cause them "enhanced annoyance". SSE (Scottish and Southern Electricity) have, by building even larger, more powerful wind turbines so close to the communities of Fairlie and Millport, provided even stronger evidence that the harm from wind turbine infrasound is physiological, not psychological.


7.00 pm Tea and Coffee served

7.30 pm Melvin Grosvenor, of the UK Independent Noise Working Group (INWG) will introduce

“How Wind Turbines Create Infrasound” by Dr John Yelland, Independent Acoustician
