Speaking to victims of industrial wind. 

Neil Anderson hails from Falmouth, Massachusetts and has been a leader in the effort to tell the story of the many families in Falmouth who have been severely impacted by the turbine know as "Wind One". 

Barb Ashbee was forced out of her Ontario home by the siting of industrial turbines too close.  Her experiences with the local and provincial government are scary and disturbing.

Richard Braithwaite lives in Keyser, West Virginia and was one of seventy-five neighbors who signed a petition seeking a solution to the noise coming from the Pinnacle Wind project.  He purchased an inexpensive sound meter and routinely registers 60 - 70db outside his home. As he says, "Let them bring their thousand dollar machine and take their own readings."

Gerry Meyer lives in Brownsville, Wisconsin amongst a large wind facility. There are five turbines in close proximity with the closest at 1560 feet from his home. All of the members of his family have been affected.

"In the house there are thumping sounds everywhere, especially upstairs in the sewing room. Very tense and sickening."
