Subject: Comments on recent report purporting to examine the adverse health effects of wind turbines on humans

Dear Sir/Madam,could you please ensure that my recent report to the NSW Government in Australia is brought to the attention of the authors of the recent report on the adverse Health effects of Wind Turbines.I urge each of the authors of that report to carefully read my report, and then revisit the issue, and consider the implications and their individual personal responsibility in continuing to ignore the plight of residents in Massachusetts, and elsewhere around the world, whose health is being seriously damaged by large industrial wind turbines when they are located too close to residential areas and workplaces.Health and planning officials who choose to ignore the mounting evidence of serious harm to human health will be held accountable one day, along with others equally culpable. I have again attached the Waubra Foundation’s explicit cautionary notice. It was circulated in the middle of 2011.I suggest each of the authors reads it very carefully. It was prepared by a former judge of the Supreme Court of Victoria, in Australia, and myself, based on consultation with doctors treating sick residents, and the residents themselves.Could you please acknowledge receipt of this email.Yours sincerely,Dr Sarah Laurie
