Impact of Long-Term Exposure to Wind Turbine Noise on Redemption of Sleep Medication and Antidepressants: A Nationwide Cohort Study

Author:  Poulsen, Aslak Harbo; et al. | Denmark, Health, Noise

BACKGROUND: Noise from wind turbines (WTs) is associated with annoyance and, potentially, sleep disturbances. OBJECTIVES: Our objective was to investigate whether long-term WT noise (WTN) exposure is associated with the redemption of prescriptions for sleep medication and antidepressants. METHODS: For all Danish dwellings within a radius of 20-WT heights and for 25% of randomly selected dwellings within a radius of 20-to 40-WT heights, we estimated nighttime outdoor and low-frequency (LF) indoor WTN, using information on WT type and simulated hourly . . .

Long-Term Exposure to Wind Turbine Noise and Risk for Myocardial Infarction and Stroke: A Nationwide Cohort Study

Author:  Poulsen, Aslak Harbo; et al. | Denmark, Health, Noise

BACKGROUND: Noise from wind turbines (WTs) is reported as more annoying than traffic noise at similar levels, raising concerns as to whether WT noise (WTN) increases risk for cardiovascular disease, as observed for traffic noise. OBJECTIVES: We aimed to investigate whether long-term exposure to WTN increases risk of myocardial infarction (MI) and stroke. METHODS: We identified all Danish dwellings within a radius 20 times the height of the closest WT and 25% of the dwellings within 20–40 times the height . . .

Long-term exposure to wind turbine noise at night and risk for diabetes: A nationwide cohort study

Author:  Poulsen, Aslak Harbo; et al. | Denmark, Health, Noise

Highlights We investigated a cohort of 365,986 Danes living close to wind turbines (WT). We identified 25,148 cases of diabetes during the period 1996–2002. Long-term exposure to WT noise was not associated with increased risk of diabetes. Similar results were seen for indoor night-time noise and across a range of strata. Results do not support an association between wind turbine noise and diabetes. Abstract Noise from wind turbines (WTs) is reported as more annoying than traffic noise at similar levels, . . .

Comments on proposed amended habitat mitigation plan

Author:  Smallwood, Shawn | California, Oregon, Wildlife

On behalf of Friends of the Columbia Gorge, Oregon Wild, the Oregon Natural Desert Association, Central Oregon LandWatch, the Audubon Society of Portland, and East Cascades Audubon Society, I write to comment on the Request for Amendment 4 for the Summit Ridge Wind Farm, which requests a postponement of construction start and end dates for the project and which proposes an amended Habitat Mitigation Plan (January 2019). I primarily wish to comment on (1) the suitability of the habitat assessment . . .
