The Society for Wind Vigilance, at its First International Symposium on “The Global Wind Industry & Adverse Health Effects” (October 29-31, 2010), presented Nina Pierpont, MD, PhD, with its Award for Excellence for Research & Leadership 2010.
On the other hand Politicians and Industry would qualify as “SNAKE OIL SALESMEN!”

Congratulations, Nina! Although, I think it should have been an award for Excellence of Research, Leadership, Personal Fortitude, Generosity and Grace Under Fire. Probably just an oversight….or maybe there is only a finite number of qualifications that can be fit onto the certificate using this font size.
“Well earned and well deserved,” indeed!

Congratulations Nina. It was a great honour and thrill to witness the moment you received the accolades for your efforts and work. It was a huge thrill for me to meet you and Calvin at the symposium. The energy of that room after you spoke was nothing like I had ever experienced before. I was so riveted by your talk and couldn’t get over how quickly the time flew by. I can see now how your passions for the brain health of your patients translates directly the effects WTS is having on people. We are truly blessed to have someone like you and Calvin fighting to represent us against this scourge called Big Wind!
Can’t thank you enough.

Congratulations Nina and thank you both for being who you are and doing what you do.
We’ve moved on and only occasionally think of the house we left behind. We’re banking on ‘our’ turbines breaking down as often as they have done in the past 4 years so that it won’t be worth anyone’s while to repair them. We’re now warning people in South Tirol about the effects of wind turbines as Big Wind has cast its greedy eyes on one of our local Alpine valleys.

Congratulations Nina. You certainly deserve this international recognition. Our thanks to you and Calvin for all your efforts.

Thank you for all you’ve done and continue to do to help people up against “Big Wind”!! The world needs more concerned scientists like you to take a stand and DO WHAT’S RIGHT! Congratulations on this well-deserved award!!

Wonderful news! The award is richly deserved. Recognition of Nina’s pioneering work and scientific achievement is long overdue.
The best award people can give to Nina and Calvin is to study the research and get the word out. This is all essential to the fight! Learn it, spread it, preach it….
Love you guys, You have been my inspiration! Thanks for all you do. I have to admit (crouching down), there is a PRO side to Industrial Wind — the friends I have made are outstanding!!
I haven’t crossed the border in years. Would love to hear/see a recording, but could visit you face-to-face, which I need to do real soon.

At the “Wind Turbines & Health” symposium, Beth Harrington [one of the conference organizers] said she thought that it would be “a good idea” having next year’s Second International Symposium on “The Global Wind Industry & Adverse Health Effects” held at Queen’s University in Kingston, Ontario, where there is video-link equipment. That could bring hundreds of the non-paying public to attend the symposium in a non-violent rally to attract the media.
