From Illinois — Dr. Paul Schomer Presentation “Effects of Wind Turbine Acoustic Emissions” Available on Request

Please read the following letter advising how to get a copy of Dr. Schomer’s power point presentation.  Do NOT contact Quixotes.  Follow the directions below and if you have difficulty, please leave a comment.  Thanks — DQ


This past Tuesday evening, June 23rd, renowned noise expert, Dr. Paul Schomer presented a power point entitled “Effects of Wind Turbine Acoustic Emissions” during our ZBA public hearing in Boone County, Illinois.

The power point included 7 major points of interest:
1. Wind turbine effects
2. Illinois Pollution Control Board does not adequately protect citizens from wind turbine noise annoyance
3. Annoyance – criterion
4. Annoyance – distance
5. Effects on sleep
6. Low frequency and infrasound
7. 7 allegations by the wind industry that are wrong

His power point was a unique balance of scientific and technical information examining the realm of audible and non-audible noise annoyance as well as carefully examining the 7 allegations represented by the Wind Industry.

It was a very powerful presentation and additional information was brought out during the cross examination portion of his testimony.

We are encouraging everyone to contact the Boone County Planning Department tomorrow, Friday, June 26th and request (FOIA) both an audio version of the public hearing and a hard copy of Dr. Schomer’s power point. His testimony begins at 11 mins 40 seconds on the second recording on the copied CD.

The Planning Department can be reached at: (815) 544-5271.

It is our intent to reveal to the staff that a large number of requests for Dr. Schomer’s material under scores the significance and magnitude of his presentation. Our hope is that some in Boone County begin to understand the seriousness of the issue.

When we request CD’s from the Planning Department, the cost is usually $5. Please let us know if you are required to pay an additional charge.

As we all continue the battle, let us remember the armor of God is our most powerful weapon.

PS. During the presentation, Dr. Schomer said that something on the power point was incorrect. On page 38; there is a line that reads: “12 to 23 % sensed the power generation of the turbine”. It should read, “12 to 23 % reacted”.

PSS Please leave a comment below if you have any difficulties getting the information.

    With all the information why is it that the Australian government takes no notice? Thank you Dr. Schomer for your support of the problem with wind turbines
