Network of Wind power opponents worldwide
“Wind-Nation” Denmark spys on and analyzes critical citizens
Copenhagen / Hamburg A Danish study, paid by the taxpayers with more than 2.6 million Euros, supported by the beneficiaries of wind power under the leadership of the world’s largest wind turbine manufacturer Vestas, hand in hand with Siemens and Vattenfall in Denmark, has to ensure to stop protests and disabilities in the implementation of wind power projects. The Danish wind power industry complains, that it is increasingly difficult to find acceptance for their projects in the local communities.
Thanks to the Ministry of Research and funded by public money, the interdisciplinary study was launched, supported by scientists from three universities from Denmark, Ireland and England and the stakeholders of the wind industry. The exchange of informations among organizations of wind power opponents on such subjects as “Wind farm fraud” , “species protection” ,”sleep disorders” and “Nina Pierpont”, a doctor from the State of New York, who has researched the wind turbine syndrome, a desease caused by low-frequency noise under which, according to recent studies from Sweden 30% of the residents near wind turbines are sufferíng, has been specifically studied.
For this purpose, the compounds of 323 websites of nationally and internationally headwind organizations and associations have been spied on and analyzed. Alone in small Denmark there are now 200 groups and associations, worldwide there are thousands of organisations with some hundreds of connected initiatives.
On Friday, 2pm CET, websites of wind power opponents worldwide will publish a graphic of the study, named 2050, to confirm their good networking, and to show, that must be reckoned with them. The population has a democratic right to transparency and participation – worldwide. Conservation of nature and biodiversity, landscape and people’s health is the common goal of this global movement.
