A fiery wind power conspiracy

The anti-wind farm movement, including the Waubra Foundation, are now spreading fear that wind farms will lead to greater bushfires. Pity they don't pay attention to what fire-fighting authorities actually say.

Menace captures our attention like few other concepts. We cannot turn our gaze from bearers of bad news. Few know this better than Australia's anti-wind lobby - an amalgam of small groups that exist solely to inhibit (and ultimately, halt) the development of wind energy in Australia. 

A key player in anti-wind activism is the 'Waubra Foundation', an organisation that exists primarily to spread the notion that low-frequency noise from wind farms causes headaches, nausea, embryonic chicken mutations, and more than 200 other symptoms jointly known as ‘Wind Turbine Syndrome’. Ex-General Practitioner Sarah Laurie leads the charge as CEO (and sole employee) of the Waubra Foundation.

They distribute distress via emotionally charged community meetings, packed with anecdotal reports of health effects.
