My AWEA/CanWEA Expert Panel Critique

The American Wind Energy Association (AWEA) and the Canadian Wind Energy Association (CanWEA) ganged together to produce this literature review of studies on health effects of wind turbines.  They  paid 7 “experts” (none of whom was an epidemiologist), one of whom was the same Dr. Colby who had previously staked out his position with the Chatham-Kent Health Study.  This study is also known as Colby (2009) since he was alphabetically first.

Like the earlier Colby work, this one never went into the field to see what was really going on.  It was published 3 days after the release of Dr. Pierpont’s Wind Turbine Syndrome and spent a great deal of ink disparaging her book.  It recognized that not much was known about some of the effects of wind turbines but then astonishingly recommended no further study.
