Call in to speak with the host

An interview with Dr. Nicholas Kouwen, P.Eng, Distinguished Professor Emeritus University of Waterloo.
 
Dr. Kouwen's groundbreaking work over the past year has revealed that the Ontario Ministry of Environment's noise limits are being exceeded a majority of the time near industrial wind turbines (IWT’s) at locations in Grey Highlands, ON, Canada. Furthermore it appears the MOE model is flawed and "substantially underestimates" wind turbine noise. We spoke with Dr. Kouwen about his methodology and ongoing work.
 
Dr. Kouwen's full report can be found here.

The graph referenced during the interview is here.

Also an update from Sustainable Shetland.
