From The People’s Initiative against Wind Turbines

July 6, 2011

Dear Misters Kimmell & Auerbach,

We live in eastern Germany, near Berlin. Over the last 3 years we have been forced to suffer the noise of wind turbines.

Within a year of the first turbines being built, local residents began experiencing health problems. From tinnitus to sleep disturbance, etc.

You can read about the distress of citizens from wind turbines by visiting The People’s Initiative against Wind Turbines.  [If you are using Google as your browser, you can get Google to translate The People’s Initiative against Wind Turbines by clicking here.  Type this web address into the Google Translate box, select “German to English,” and hit your Return button—Editor.]

In the federal State of Brandenburg, 28,000 people signed a petition against wind turbines as being built too close to their homes.  [This figure of 28,000 has been confirmed by the author—Editor.]

Yours sincerely,

Wolfgang Neumann
. . . on behalf of many citizens of Brandenburg, Germany, and as Representative and Chairperson of the Construction Committee Golzow.

    We have relatives in Germany. I shall forward this message to them. Onward and upward. The truth will out. Cream rises.

    Many thanks! The free people in Germany already speak of a new totalitarian regime. The Germans are not able simply differently. Either faithfully to emperor, Nazis, or Communists. The Germans go on marching in step, now to the next mania.

    But many citizens defend themselves and unite. This is hidden in the German media or is made ridiculous. From these synchronised media, we can expect in Germany, nothing.

    Still we fight. We help ourselves and become more and more inflow.—Autobahnen.html

    Best regards and cheers,

    Wolfgang Neumann

    Hello Mr.Wolfgang Neumann, I’m from Waterloo South Australia, here we have the same problem as you are having in Germany, on the ridge in front of my House we have 37@3MW Turbines, this 128mtr toll monster’s made a lot of people very ill, to the point that 5 Families including myself have left their Homes , this may seem like very little, only when you hear, we only have about 25 Houses in the town, my concern is that you looking for the wrong setback from Homes, here we are trying for 10km minimum, we know that in Vitoria Australia say have a 2 km buffer, but myself and my Brother how also has left his Home, and moved in a Caravan to the next town 6km over a hill, was still feeling the effect from the Wind Turbines, whenever he comes into Waterloo to check on his Home he gets so ill that he has to get out of Town, and we checked out at what distance he felt better and it started after 10km away from Turbines, so now he stays on a property 20 km from waterloo, and myself I’m staying with my Mother in the City of Adelaide in her shed, and within a week my Blood pressure went back down to nearly normal the bad sleeps went after 2nights, the Nausea after 4 Days, the headaches after3 nights, but the ringing in my ears didn’t get better, so please find out what and where this is coming from, the Turbines are making my Families and friends very sick, before you all set the distance from Homes and Farms, we are between 2-3 Km, from the Wind Turbines.
    Kind regards
    Andreas Marciniak
