Good news from Wisconsin

A county health unit in Wisconsin has adopted the following resolution related to health effects & wind turbines:

THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED that the Brown County Board of Health formally requests temporary emergency financial relocation assistance from the State of Wisconsin for those Brown County families that are suffering adverse health effects and undue hardships caused by the irresponsible placement of industrial wind turbines around their homes and property. The State of Wisconsin emergency financial assistance is requested until the conditions that have caused these undue hardships are studied and resolved, allowing these families to once again return safely to their homes and property.

Hurrah! I am pro wind turbine, but that is still good to hear. I have read a lot about the problems and would never want to live near a large turbine.
The type of wind turbine would really make a difference. I think smaller VAWTs might be the answer over the large HAWT. We won't know until we try!
Changing zoneing and putting ethics code in place for wind farm companies might go a long way too. I watched a documentary the other day about how they would try to keep neighbors in the dark with NDAs so they could ‘divide and conquer’ so to speak.
