Dave, Lisa, and Harley with the Windswept News.

We will have Richard James of E-coustics Solutions on to talk about his experiences with turbine noise and infrasound.

Rick is the Owner and Principal Consultant for E-Coustic Solutions and a has been a practicing acoustical engineer for 40 years.  He has been
actively involved with the Institute of Noise Control Engineers (INCE) since the early 1970s and has full Member status. Specific to wind turbine noise, Rich has worked for clients in over 60 different communities and has provided written and oral testimony in approximately 30 of those cases.

Rick has authored or co-authored four papers covering topics from how to set criteria to protect public health, demonstrating that wind turbine sound emissions are predominantly comprised of infra and low frequency sound, and conducted a historical review of other types of noise sources with similar sound emission characteristics, such as noise induced Sick Building Syndrome, that have known adverse health effects on people exposed to their sound.

His work with local communities and citizens groups around the U.S. and Ontario, Canada has focused on the question of how to integrate industrial wind turbines into rural communities.

We will also air our complete interview with Australian Senator John Madigan.
