Letter in a bottle (Italy)
Mar 8, 2011
To put it in a nutshell:
We moved into and enjoyed our new house (Scansano, Italy) for exactly 4 weeks—until the newly erected 121m wind turbines (10 of them, the nearest 800-900m from the house) started operating.
I quickly developed the following symptoms, with which I’d never been troubled before:
» panic attacks at all times of the day and night
» loss of concentration
Coupled with this, I heard a strange humming or buzzing noise in my house, loud enough to be extremely distressing and also perceived by visitors.
I couldn’t enjoy a peaceful evening outside on my terrace and I couldn’t invite friends or relatives for this reason.
I became paranoid about returning home after a day’s work because I knew I would not be able to rest.
After a year of keeping a diary of the daily horror (published 2008 on www.wind-watch.org) and spending extended periods away from home to recuperate, we moved out for good—abandoning the work of a lifetime.
Our house is unsaleable, our old age “pension” worthless.
