NIMBY is getting a foothold agains wind turbine energy, this time using
human health concerns instead of the health of birds.
"BOARDMAN -- Sherry Eaton pulled into the driveway of her rural, high-desert
home to see one of several giant wind turbines being assembled a half-mile
"I started to cry," Eaton, 57, recalled of her first sight of the Willow
Creek Wind Project in late July. "They're going to be hanging over the back
of our house, and now there's the medical thing."
"The medical thing" is new research suggesting that living close to wind
turbines, as Eaton and her 60-year old husband, Mike, soon will be doing,
can cause sleep disorders, difficulty with equilibrium, headaches, childhood
"night terrors" and other health problems. "
