Wind farms cause cancer?

That’s the claim being made by a group of California environmentalists fanatics.

Conservation groups in Southern California sued the Department of the Interior on Tuesday in an attempt to block construction of a wind farm they claim could cause nearby residents to develop health problems ranging from diabetes to cancer to attention deficit disorder.

The Protect Our Communities Foundation and Backcountry Against Dumps allege the agency failed to take a “hard look” at the potential for the 186-megawatt project to emit low-frequency sound and “dirty electricity” and cause a litany of ailments, including vertigo, chronic fatigue and fibromyalgia….

I am telling you, these people won’t be happy until we are living in dugouts and eating grubs.

    Actually there is some pretty convincing research showing some damage results from living to close to those monstrocities, not to mention the bird kill they do.

    Ya couldn’t pay me to live within a couple miles of one.

      Maybe but these freaks thing everything man made is an “Oh my God, the horror, the horror, the sky is falling” threat to Mother Gaia.

    Human civilization causes cancer and pollution n’ stuff. Ban civilization.

    Bein a former bubblehead? I can attest to lofreq sound affecting your health. http://www.fas.org/irp/program/collect/lfa.htm is an example. Seen it in action on a boat.
    As for EMI, I think any extended exposure to high levels would have a deleterious affect upon your tissue/organs eventually, it would have to depend on your exposure, no different than non-ionizing radiation.

    Unless your boat was being tailed by an assload of scientists intent on studying effects of LFA sonar on human (much less sea life) health you would have no idea of any purported effects of such; especially since any operational boat uses its active sonar just about hardly ever. Why? Because doing so tells any in proximity just where you are, and that is a damn bad idea for a boat. So really, I have no idea how you might have seen the effects of LFA sonar “in action” on your boat. Unlike the Seaview, there are no foward observation windows to observe such. So if you really did see such in real time, I would love to know how.

    As to EMI, defined as,

    “EMI (electromagnetic interference) is the disruption of operation of an electronic device when it is in the vicinity of an electromagnetic field (EM field) in the radio frequency (RF) spectrum that is caused by another electronic device. …,” (http://searchmobilecomputing.techtarget.com/definition/electromagnetic-interference),

    I have no idea what this has to do with LFA sonar. EMI is a RF spectrum effect. Beyond frequency range, we are trying to equate air EM and water Pressure propogation as equivalents – which they are not, much less any bodily effects attendant thereto.

    Lastly, as to equating EMI body effects with those “no different than non-ionizing radiation, …, ” you should know, having had it been drummed into you as a bubblehead through countless hours of instruction, training and drills, that it is IONIZING radiation that damages the human body.

    Exposure to non-ionizing radiation would be a don’t care – if there were such a thing.

    In short reboot, your post confuses me. If so inclined, please clear up my confusion.
