In August 2009, the Federal Government implemented the Renewable Energy Target (RET) scheme, which is designed to deliver on the Government’s commitment to ensure that 20% of Australia’s electricity supply will come from renewable sources by 2020. The scheme has seen the rapid growth of wind power generation as a viable green energy source. However, as reported in recent times, there have been mounting concerns about the impact of wind turbines on human health to the point where the Senate called an inquiry into the Social and Economic Impacts of Rural Wind Farms in October last year with the finding due to be tabled next month. One group that filed submissions with the inquiry is the newly formed Waubra Foundation and Jess wingard spoke to Waubra’s medical director Dr Sarah Laurie. Jess asked Dr. Laurie to outline how wind farms endanger health.
