Facts out, wind outrage in

Despite scientific studies failing to find any detrimental health impacts from wind farms, the anti-wind brigade is fuelling fires. How is this happening and can it be countered?

Recently, I relayed the tale of a man angrily questioning the health effects of wind farms, and proceeding to smoke a cigarette: two risks that he seemed to react to with odd disparity. In that piece, I explored some of the reasons why it can be quite natural for us to adopt pseudoscience, when it’s predicated on fear and uncertainty.
