The Waubra Foundation is a national organisation formed to facilitate properly reviewed, independent research into the health problems which have been identified by residents living near wind turbines and other industrial sites which may have common cause.

A South Australian rural GP, Dr. Sarah Laurie, became interested in the subject in July 2010 after a wind development was proposed for the hills adjacent to her house and concerned neighbours began to ask questions about possible adverse health effects should the development proceed. After reviewing the available literature, Dr. Laurie decided there was evidence of a health problem and accordingly decided to accept an invitation to become the Medical Director of the Foundation.

Research by other rural medical practitioners – Drs. Amanda Harry (UK), David Iser (Victoria) and Nina Pierpont (USA) had revealed serious health problems emerging in the proximity of various wind energy projects. Further urgent investigation is required in order to assist in the development of safe planning guidelines regarding the siting of industrial wind developments in rural areas.

The Foundation maintains close links to international researchers and other organisations investigating the same cluster of symptoms.

    I’m personally not looking forward to the wind-turbines being there, I’m really worried about the reported adverse health affects of them being so close. I have been following several web-sites reporting from around the world, its been a real eye-opener. Below is a partial article I took from Wind-Watch, the full article can be found at:- http://www.wind-watch.org/ww-noise-health.php

    “Several physicians from around the world — e.g., Amanda Harry in England, Robert McMurtry in Ontario, Robyn Phipps in New Zealand — have recorded a common set of ill health effects among people living near industrial-scale wind turbines. The symptoms began when local turbines began to turn, and they are relieved when the victims leave the area. Many families have had to abandon their homes as unlivable.

    The symptoms include:

    * sleep disturbance
    * headache
    * ringing or buzzing in the ears (tinnitus)
    * ear pressure
    * dizziness, vertigo
    * nausea
    * visual blurring
    * racing heartbeat (tachycardia)
    * irritability
    * problems with concentration and memory
    * panic episodes with sensations of internal pulsation or quivering which arise while awake or asleep”

    What scares me most is that despite the concerns (and evidence) about-health and certain other issues, no-one seems to be listening. What if all the reports on adverse health problems are for real, what happens then?

    Hello lochgelly,
    This is my first input to the site but it wont be the last. People we do not have to pay for energy, there are hundreds of ways of powering the national grid without these ludicrous towers. Anonymous is an Evolutionary movement of the people in the world who are sick of the whole corrupt agenda of the greedy elite. There are hundreds of reasons i can put to you about the whythe windfarm idea stops now. The bigger issue here is the corrupt government. Everyone make sure this is a brilliant christmas because next year we are restructuring britian for the good of the people. this will be a peaceful transition of power as anonymous cannot be stopped and all governments know it. please everyone take your money out of the banks as they are the thiefs and will try and keep your money from you. That is why anonymous is pushing the credit unions to open branches all over in every town in the world. because it is a local bank for the people where the money stays in the community and the banks cannot touch it. so please transfer your finances to them while you still can. People this revolution will not be televised as the tv companies are in the scam with the elites. search youtube for anonymous updates and real truth of humanity, fb http://www.facebook.com/pages/Anonymous-OpScotland-OpBritain/125880150835982?sk=wall&filter=2 or twitter @anonymousjock
    Please everyone its important we spread the festive goodwill to all humanity and bring out the true human nature within all of us merry christmas xxxxx

    Hi Anonymousjock, thank you for your comments. Nice to see the anonymous collective visit the site, we have been watching your group with interest since the days of the Anonymous vs Scientology (http://www.whyweprotest.net/)

    One of the reasons we built this site was in part due to Anonymous, as we agreed with the ethos of freedom of speech and the power of the internet to keep that freedom.

    Keep up the good work.
