This is a presentation by Prof Simon Chapman, School of Public Health, University of Sydney and Teresa Simonetti, Sydney University Medical School, which was delivered to a wind industry conference in New Zealand.

Wind farms have come under attack in English speaking countries in recent years from anti-wind activists, on the basis that the turbines are supposedly a source of dangerous infrasound.

This presentation explains the social and psychological genesis of diseases, providing a historical context and current update on the science and narrative of 'wind turbine sickness'.
