The persecution of a medical heroine, Dr. Sarah Laurie (Australia)

May 23, 2013


Dr. Sarah Laurie

Editor’s note:  When I was an academic, one of my specialties was “Disease in History.”  I taught this course at a worldclass university, where I was a tenured professor.  In addition, for several years I had a courtesy appointment at the Institute of the History of Medicine at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine.

All by way of background to this:   Dr. Sarah Laurie will one day have a postage stamp bearing her image.  Yes, in Australia.  Dr. Laurie will one day be featured in textbooks.  Dr. Laurie will have at least one book written about her—at least one of them, a scholarly book.  Dr. Laurie will be likely the subject of a Hollywood movie, like Erin Brockovich.  Dr. Laurie will be routinely taught in courses on the History of Medicine at medical schools.

The people persecuting Dr. Laurie are cowards and contemptible.  A year or so ago I contacted one of them and referred to his “fabulous imbecilities” regarding Wind Turbine Syndrome—and, frankly, most everything else I saw on his pretentious academic resumé.  To pronounce this man an academic buffoon would be generous.  That he’s taken seriously in Australia is nothing short of appalling.  (I predict this man will, as well, turn up in textbooks—whenever the history of The Big Wind-Energy Folly is written.  History will not be kind to him.)

But I digress.  The European Platform against Windfarms and North American Platform against Windpower have issued a joint declaration of support for Dr. Laurie.  We, at Wind Turbine, are honored to join the signatories to this ringing endorsement.

    Kudos to Dr. Laurie, to NEPAW, EPAW, Dr. Pierpont and all the many dedicated professionals and activists who are refusing to back down to the wind industry bullies.

    Only cowards and liars make accusations “anonymously,” as was done by the author of the so-called document submitted to the Public Health Association of Australia. Dr. Laurie dares stand toe-to-toe with an industry that is powerful, well-funded and…getting desperate. She doesn’t hide behind anonymity.

    That shows integrity, strength and an assurance in the knowledge that what she’s doing is RIGHT.

    Let’s hope the PHAA and their employers (the People of Australia) recognize the truth when they see it and give such anonymous bullies the bum’s rush. There is important work to do and we mustn’t allow a corporate lobby to control the conversation or send it off on delay-inducing tangents with red herrings such as this one.

    As always, I thank the editor for keeping us abreast of what’s happening in the world of “wind.”

    It has been my great pleasure and a significant contribution to my understanding of the devastating health effects that the modulated waste acoustic energy, noise, both audible and inaudible, have on the human system, having communicated with and listened to Dr. Sarah, privately and at the Falmouth Human Rights Conference last November, when she spoke via Skype at the Falmouth Public Library.

    That she has been targeted by cowardly swine acting as shills doing the bidding of Big Wind, bespeaks the level of organized gangsterism that underpins the Industrial Windpower Fraud. Like the Nazis in the 1930’s that Winston Churchill vainly and doggedly tried to warn his island nation of, Big Wind has ensconced itself into the neo-Liberal agendas of politicians all over the world to carry out its grand plan of colonization of vast windy areas, regardless of the medical mayhem, depopulation, political exploitation and subversion, and personality assassination of the heroes of the people, Drs. Nina and Sarah, foremost.

    I shall not rest until the Big Wind scourge is banned and eliminated.

    It has been my great pleasure to call this lady my friend. And thank you, Calvin and Nina, for all the great work you both have been doing to bring this evil of turbines and the developers to light. In my eyes you are all heroes of the people, and if it wasn’t for your support I would have given up the fight a long time ago.

    Thanks to all of you. You are doing and have done a great service to the world.

    R.C. Gorman, “Gracias!”

    Editor’s note:  Andreas, you are a hero.  How so, you ask?  Because you have been brutalized by this juggernaut—by “wind energy,” so it’s called.  It’s the wrong name; it should be called “infrasound torture.”  It ripped you away from your home and community.  Yet, you refused to be beaten.  You refused to be silent.  You refused to accept it.  You have linked arms with victims, sufferers, around the world—and we are a community.  Nina & I, and Dr. Sarah, gain our strength and resolve from people like you and Sue Hobart and Gail Mair and Hubert de Bonneville and—the list is long.

    As long as you refuse to be beaten, we too will fight this madness.  The nightmare.  It will be defeated.

    Thank you, Calvin, Nina, the Waubra Foundation, EPAW, NA-PAW, for your support and defense of Dr. Sarah Laurie as she is under attack from cowardly anonymous accusers. It is unconscionable that anonymous charges can be brought to bear in governmental agencies with the goal being the destruction of a person’s professional life. The charges against Dr. Laurie should have been dismissed without further action. The positive aspect of this outrageous development in the War Against Wind Energy is that when powerful people bring out the Big Guns against you, it means they fear you!

    As wrong as this campaign against Dr. Laurie is, it does show that she and the Waubra Foundation are making progress informing and re-educating the Australian citizenry as to the true nature and adverse impact of industrial wind energy upon the whole environment.

    I hope and pray that the Lord will use this unjust action to showcase the truth of Dr. Laurie’s courageous and successful efforts to expose the facts about this global juggernaut that is destroying life and property everywhere it is allowed to invade the earth.

    May this action intended to silence and destroy Dr. Laurie and all those speaking-out against the adverse health effects and the related abandonment of homes in Australia, be turned against the accusers to the benefit of Wind Energy Victims and Refugees the world over!

    My prayers are with you, Dr. Laurie, Calvin, Dr. Pierpont, and all the professionals dedicating their careers and lives to fighting this destructive scourge, as Dr. Laurie is singled-out by the wind industry to stand in defense of the valuable work of you all.
