Below are research reports from top doctors, scientists and researchers from around the world that have investigated extensively large industrial wind turbines. All reports done by these researchers have come to the same conclusion that people are getting sick from large industrial wind farms such as what Governor Carcieri is proposing to put off the coastline of Rhode Island. These health effects also can potentially come into play if large industrial wind turbines are built on land too. Wind Turbine Syndrome, which has been found to occur in many people living near large industrial wind turbines especially affects two age categories, children and the elderly. We have seen reports throughout this country of people being forced to leave and abandon their homes because they can’t sleep at night. Health affects with large industrial turbines can sometimes be felt up to as much as 3 miles away from the wind farm itself. With all this scientific data, which was researched independently; meaning they did not receive one penny and therefore were not influenced by any outside forces whether it be pro or anti large wind, we believe that Governor Carcieri’s actions regarding offshore wind farms will put people’s health at risk. We also believe that our elected officials are putting local residents at risk when they support the development of large industrial wind turbines on land. Furthermore with the fact that small non- industrial wind turbines do not cause health affects or economic adversity and there are so many other alternative types of renewable energy which we can also use which are less expensive, promote tremendous economic growth and have no adverse impact on our citizens economically, environmentally and health wise, we feel that the Governor’s actions relating to large industrialized offshore wind power are completely and utterly reckless and with no regard for the quality of life for the citizens of Rhode Island.
