To date, we have raised only 45% of the money needed. We call upon all concerned citizens around the globe to dig deep into their pockets and contribute to this precedent setting case which will have global repercussions.
A staggering amount of evidence and the largest single gathering of internationally renowned experts has been assembled. The international wind industry will face one of its biggest challenges beginning on February 1, 2011. Canada will be at the centre of a legal battle of global proportions.
In response to a recent approval of an industrial wind development, an appeal has been submitted to a Tribunal (ERT). The appeal is based chiefly on the issue of serious harm to human health from noise and low frequency sound. The appeal raises other issues such as the government’s apparently admitted inability to predict, measure, or assess noise levels.
A compelling and unprecedented witness list has been assembled on all sides. This appears to be the largest single gathering of internationally renowned experts that has taken place on these issues. In all more than 20 experts and specialists in medicine, human health, acoustics and government will be appearing.
The project is owned by Suncor Energy Inc. an “integrated energy company” strategically focused on developing Canada’s oil sands. Suncor’s reported assets at December 31, 2009 were $69,746,000,000.
Suncor’s obvious financial means together with an apparent limitless cash supply for the government of Ontario indicate the resources our opponents have at their disposal.
Therefore, we call upon all concerned citizens around the globe to dig deep into their pockets and contribute to this precedent setting case which will have global repercussions.
What is at stake is nothing less than the future of wind development around the world.
The litany of half-truths and misinformation from wind lobbyists denying the adverse health effects of wind turbines must come to an end. Financial support is what is needed now to fight this case.
We have assembled a staggering amount of evidence and an extraordinary array of international witnesses. The appellants will be calling experts from New Zealand, the United States, the United Kingdom, Australia and Canada. They include:
- Dr. Robert Y. McMurtry, M.D., F.R.C.S.(C), F.A.C.S., Surgeon and Health Policy
- Dr. Michael A. Nissenbaum, M.D., Physician
- Dr. Jeffery J. Aramini, Ph.D., M.Sc., Epidemiologist
