“Please do not allow our lives to be destroyed again” by wind turbines (United Kingdom)

Aug 18, 2013



Editor’s note:  The following handwritten letter was sent to me by Jane Davis, a British nurse-midwife who, with her husband Julian, was driven from her home due to Wind Turbine Syndrome.  The Davis’s sued the wind company and were bought our for an undisclosed sum —with a gag clause attached.

Jane sent her note with the following explanation.

Calvin, this is written by Julian’s parents—who also lost their home when we did—due to the wind farm.  They are in their 80’s and now threatened with another wind farm less than 3 miles from the new bungalow we moved them too.  Their words are their own.  The document is in the public domain.


From: Mr. & Mrs. John Davis
To: The South Holland District Council
Regarding: The proposed windfarm at West Pinchbeck (Ref. no. H14-0110-13)
Date: August 13, 2013

We are writing to ask [that] the application for this windfarm is refused.

We are frightened that if this application goes ahead, that we will lose our home for a second time because of the impact that living near a windfarm has on day-to-day life.

We had to leave our home of 28 years because of noise from a nearby windfarm — long periods of noise from the blades, mostly worst during the evening and at night. The noise could be heard both inside and outside of our home.

Another noise problem caused by the windfarm near our old home was the persistent quiet buzzing noise which made our old home feel as if there was some sort of presence there. It made you feel agitated and edgy.

For Mr. Davis, this was diagnosed as tinnitus, but moving away from the DSN windfarm has cured the problem — no more buzzing in the ears.

We did not realize how much these noises from Deeping St. Nicholas Windfarm were affecting us. Our sleeping was not good. Both of us could wake up 3 times a night, finding it very difficult to go back to sleep. Now, we only wake up once and find it much easier to drop off to sleep; it feels a lot more relaxing in our current home.

We are also not disturbed by turbine noise outside our new home when gardening — something that often was not possible at our old home, especially in the evening.

Initially we did not see how living near wind turbines could affect us. But having lived too near to Deeping St. Nicholas Windfarm for nearly six years, we can say the noise from it changes your life for the worse. It there is a noise problem the only answer is to move house. The noise is not something you get used to.

We are both 80 and happy and peaceful in our new home. We sleep at night and are able to enjoy life again.

The prospect of having wind turbines near our new home fills us with fear. I urge SHDC not to allow this application — not to allow our lives to be destroyed again.

Yours faithfully,

E.E. Davis

    God bless Mr. and Mrs. Davis!

    Those who are strong and able to move on, are shot down again. I fear and pray for all of us.

    The “green energy movement” is a silent war, a well-orchestrated assault that has become global.

    As the Bible warns, we will be the cause of our own demise.

    So elegantly and humbly stated… God Bless You, Both, Mr. and Mrs. Davis.

    May their’s be the letter God uses to reach the South Holland District Councilmembers, and open their hearts, minds, and souls to hear and heed Truth.

    I pray this innocent couple and all of their neighbors will be spared the Encroaching Evil riding the Wind Monster Blades of Death. The memory of the Wind Energy Scourge and its assault against Life, Liberty, and Property, with the resultant destruction of their Happiness is weighing heavily on this valiant couple’s life. The reality looms in their minds that the horrors they escaped are relentlessly threatening to begin anew in their refuge! The knowledge that they may have gained brief respite only to be assaulted once again, is a heavy burden to bear. I can glimpse the emotions they are feeling, as they stare-down fear and plead with Officialdom, while trusting in God to help them face the UNBELIEVABLE! And the unconscionable!!!

    It is evident in Mrs. Davis’ letter; the incredulity at this new threat, as the Wind Scourge pursues them across the countryside; not allowing them the peace and protection inherent in their God-given Right to Life, Liberty and Happiness [Our American Founders used that word to represent the Right to earn, acquire, and hold Property of every kind], and there is also the grasped hope that, “This Time,” Officialdom will hear and make the right decision.

    We must all hold onto that hope, and pray that NOW will be the Time: that the siting will be denied and the dam will break, flooding all of Officialdom across-the-globe with the realization that this Monstrous Evil MUST END!!!

    But, if it must continue for yet a little longer, my Fellow-Wind Energy Refugees, All Wind Energy Victims, and I – AS WE DO WHAT WE CAN TO FIGHT – must also trust God in His Perfect Will and Timing.

    May He give these Two Brave Souls Comfort, Peace, and Victory as they fight the Scourge.

    A second time!? Words fail me.

    The way things are going and the things that are allowed to happen (not only WTS) make me gag.

    God bless you and all of us who are/have been affected.
