When I heard that Canada would probe the potential health effects of wind power on those who live near the giant turbines, my first thought was: Haven’t we been here before? After all, Oregon and Massachusetts have in the past year released big reports that more or less discounted the often-dramatic claims that turbine noise and light flicker are destroying lives. But there could be a key difference with this study: Canada actually plans to conduct new research. The Massachusetts and Oregon reports mainly consisted of reviews of existing literature. As such, they offered good insight into where the science of wind and health has been. Canada wants to take a step forward into the now.
