I strongly oppose CWP's application to inflict taller turbines to the
Monaro landscape and inhabitants, for the following concerns:
- Overwhelming and intimidating size, despoiling an iconic landscape.
- Increased noise hazard from ILFN (Infra and Low Frequency Noise),
rendering homes uninhabitable.
Over the last 10 years, much research by authoritative professionals
in the field of acoustics worldwide, have found that the legitimate
hazards from ILFN, increase with the size of wind turbines - the
taller the turbine, the further the travel of ILFN, and the risks of
rendering neighboring homes uninhabitable. Already there is an
enormous legacy of abandoned homes in the wake of industrial wind
turbines, ALL OVER THE WORLD. The people who are forced to abandon
their homes are rarely adequately, if ever, compensated. This is not a
fair distribution of the cost of an insatiable world appetite for
While there is doubt over the safety of the new wave of wind turbine
technology, the precautionary principle ought to be applied. Otherwise
we risk driving not only people from an injurious precinct, but
animals, insects, birds, ending up with barren uninhabitable places,
places where we need to grow food, where we need to preserve
We are Australians, we used to have an ethics for fair play.....where
has it gone?
