Wind Turbine Syndrome

From Oregonian ... Wind whips up health fears

In the category of "the leading cause of death is life", it seems some are saying windmills will make you ill.

Whether or not this is scientifically correct (which I think remains to be convincingly demonstrated, the sample sizes in the newspaper article looked awfully small), one suspects windmill operators will have to buy out neighboring land owners to deal with this noise externality (as airports do today), driving up the price of "clean" wind power.
