...can cause sleep disorders, difficulty with equilibrium, headaches, childhood "night terrors" and other health problems.
The author seems like a downright amazing person:
I am an unabashed lover of wildness. I did my Ph.D. research living in a tent in the Amazon jungle for several years, studying bird behavior. In pursuit of wildness and native cultures, my husband and I lived for another several years with Yup’ik Eskimos on the Alaska tundra, near the Bering Sea (where I became chief of pediatrics at a native-run hospital). Likewise we spent a summer living on the Navajo reservation (as I did a sub-internship in medical school).
There may be merit to some of this. Living next to a wind farm may be, say, a tenth as bad as living next to a coal plant, for instance. Which would be bad.
You have to wonder: did Drudge link to that story because Ms. Pierpont is "an unabashed lover of wilderness," or because she's written a book that makes wind energy, that dirty f*ing hippie nonsense that will ruin the world one day, look bad?
I've left a comment for Ms. Pierpost. We'll see if she has anything to say about her Drudge link.
And I love this quote from the original link:
"Man, this whole country is going to be windmills," said a dismayed Denny Wade, 59, a railroad worker and neighbor of the Eatons.
