hope none of them are coming to termon we have enough masks etc people make a fortune out of renting land for those disgusting contraptions i say no to wind farms put them out to sea where they are not distroying peoples health.
A call to investigate a health hazard by undertaking a study to demonstrate that something does not cause harm is nonsensical.
There is not enough time in infinity to prove a negative.
More concerning is that the people of Donegal seem incapable of electing a representative body that has an ounce of common sense.
Apparently the old sayings that “There are none so blind as those that will not see, There are none so deaf as those who will not hear” applies to Co Manager Neely, Donegal Planners and it seems a certain number of elected councillors. Of course the wind energy developers simply do not give a damn and the landowners are so taken by the lure of the euro that they refuse to see the health implications they are inflicting on themselves, their families and their neighbours.
what exactly are the health concerns.
About time Ireland went to Nuclear for its main power and then wind & hydro to back it up. Clean efficient and reliable.
The whole renewable energy debate is one indeed that merits serious discussion and what better place to have this debate than in the town that is under serious attack from the wind industry, Glenties and what better forum to have this informed debate than at Ireland’s foremost summer school ‘The Patrick Mc Gill Summer School’ or would this be TOO hot a topic?
The urgent matter now however is the county managers refusal to support the very modest proposal of a minimum 1km buffer zone between an occupied dwelling and an industrial wind turbine and in refusing to recommend this modest proposal is choosing to ignore a serious public health issue.
This is totally unacceptable.
For any council or government to continue throwing wind industry at people is complete madness,with all the very good medical evidence out there now that shows without a doubt that turbines too close to human habitation is causing very grave health problems, and its like holding a loaded gun to people heads and hoping it wont go off,what kind of idiots are we dealing with that will play russian roulette with anyones health just to fill there own pockets and wealthy wind promoters,people can not and will not sit back and allow this to continue we can and will put a stop to this and make sure people can live a safe and healthy life without threats from unsafe wind turbines,placed at the whim of councils on our doorsteps,when its perfectly obvious they can place a proper buffer between homes and turbines if they want,but they would rather keep on the big money side and to hell with the people they are supposed to protect.
Brainer you can be sure that MacGill will stay well clear of the turbine controversy.
During its long life it has avoided HOT TOPICS
like the plague.This year is as predictable as
any that went before. PRIME TIME on tour.
@curious – Good question; there are obviously very many health concerns. Read the original article posted by the Glenties GP Dr Michael Cooke at this link:
Moreover as I said therin, fair play to the Glenties GP. Note very much that he speaks not just as a concerned local GP – he has the fulsome credibility of the British Medical Journal to support a view that he has expressed in this forum heretofore ie that these industrial wind turbines are harmful to health. Now his view, and the BMJ view, is being corroborated by news coming out of Australia.
Thus it is utterly incomprehensible that Mr Neely would have this plague visited upon the people of Donegal. I have spoken before of not sacrificing our beautiful hills on the high altar of renewable energy but sacrificing the health of future generations is an altogether different story.
I hope that Donegal County Council are held accountable for all this crazyness trying to put peoples health in danger when they could easly put wind farms well away from peoples homes and towns is utter madness,must be a lot of money for Mr neily and co,and all the wind farm promoters,otherwise why step over peoples lives and communities with no qualms or feelings for anyone,Dr after Dr and sientiests know the dangers in every country where thest things have been placed yet good old DCC decide that they know better than anyone and just plough ahead with something they must know will come back to bite.
