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.

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