Welcome to Stop These Things. An expose of the shonks who run Australia’s anti-windfarm campaign.
First an overview.
Whenever a wind farm is proposed in Australia, a small group of anti-windfarm campaigners leap into action. The first part of their campaign is to blow into the town of the proposed wind farm. Rumours are spread, town hall meetings are called, and the out of town shonks appear.
It’s all fear and loathing, dodgy science, and scaring people. The anti wind farm mob tell locals that wind farms will reduce their property values, divide communities, and of course, make them sick with multiple ailments collectively known as “wind farm syndrome”.
And folks, IT’S ALL BULLSHIT.
Windfarms have been operating for decades across the globe and “Windfarm syndrome” has only existed after the anti wind farm mob started pushing this made up disease in the late 2000’s. It doesn’t exist in Europe, and it only “exists” in areas where the anti wind farm mob have launched their fear campaigns.
This blog is all about exposing the shonks.
