Letter of support from EPAW-members in Germany

Dear Members of the Society for Wind Vigilance, dear organizers, scientists, experts and visitors of this important symposium in Canada!

The members of EPAW – European Platform against Windfarms – in Germany support your International Symposium and your struggle to protect the health of human beings, social structures and nature against industrial wind energy by exposing the dangers caused by wind power plants for health and social justice.
Today there are some 22.000 wind turbines in Germany and the number is increasing all the time.- Many lie on the coast but more and more are being built inland to, where they are being set up in forests and on hills and mountains. In addition we soon will experience the plague of thousands of offshore wind turbines in the North Sea and the Baltic..

We represent thousands of German victims and opponents of wind turbines, including those in the northernmost region in Germany, where once was the cradle of the German wind power, who are suffering since more than two decades from the impact of wind turbines. The symptoms, which Nina Pierpont calls WTS in her book “Wind Turbine Syndrome”, many of us already know very well. As much as we experienced the loss of habitat and life of our species (especially birds and bats – soon the whales because of offshore wind turbines projected and already in construction) and the destroy of nature and landscape in Germany.
We are ashamed that many of the industrial killing machines are coming just from our region and about the fact that almost all the major conservation organisations in Germany have sold out to the industrial wind turbine lobby by accepting donations and sponsorship. There is therefore no support from this direction for wildlife protection in our country.

Officially in Germany there are neither subsonic nor infrasonic sound waves caused by wind turbines!
In Germany there is only good, clean and green energy obtained by wind. Every German loves wind energy and is proud that the world will be saved thanks to it !?!?

Don’t believe those who tell you such lies!!!

These are wind energy fairy tales which could better be described as nightmares!
Many people don’t dare to say openly “I’m against Wind Energy” because they will be laughed at, abused, insulted and provoked by officialdom and the media.They are even threatened and attacked by those who want to make “Big Money with Big Wind” !- Many people are too frightened to speak openly for their civil rights. They are desperate because they receive neither help nor support. -. I’m not talking theory! I speak from painful, personal experience!
Living beside wind turbines between 300 to 1000 km away is like a trip to hell! Various symptoms as high blood pressure, dizziness, headache, tinnitus and insomnia or total lack of sleep for example one has to bear.

But in Germany, where energy produced by wind turbines is called “ecological” and industrial wind turbines are sacred, people living in proximity to the 22,000 wind turbines in this country (some of them since 20 years or more) suffering from WTS and VAD, or others who will likely to become ill if the installation of an additional 25,000 new generation wind turbines planned and approved will be realized, all this officially doesn’t exist.
We, the German members of EPAW, want to thank you for this important international Symposium and your dedication to uncover the danger of the emissions by windturbines for health and social life!

Many thanks and best wishes to Ontario from all “headwinders” in Germany –
