Health, Children and Industrial Wind Turbines

Dr. Nissenbaum, a radiologist at the Northern Maine Medical Center, conducted interviews with fifteen people living near the industrial wind energy facility in Mars Hill, Maine and on March 25th, 2009 and presented his preliminary findings before the Maine Medical Association. The purpose of the interviews was to investigate and record the health effects on those living within 3500-feet (1066m) of industrial-scale turbines. In light of our elementary school, Adelaide W.G. MacDonald, being surrounded by Industrial Wind Turbines, the quote below highlights our concerns of the health of the children that will sleep and learn in this environment

“I did not even get into the issue of the sixteen children who live there. The WHO (World Health Organization) has identified children, along with the elderly, as being particularly susceptible. This would require a fair amount of time, and special expertise, as children manifest in many ways besides, or instead of, simple sleep disturbance including disturbed learning, acting out, etc.”~Dr. Michael A. Nissenbaum

Below are two recent radio interviews with Dr. Nissenbaum: 
Wind Turbines and health Pt 1, an interview

Wind Turbines and health Pt 2, an interview

You can also view his presentation to the Maine Medical Association in March 2009 here: Dr. Nissenbaum presentation

My request for an elevation mainly concerned the lack of notification and recognition of the school and its occupants: the children and staff.
