The Reckoning Ells and Moran march in minutes later and take their seats at the table. Moran quickly runs through the agenda and other formalities. He soon opens the floor to questions. Moran shoots him a grave look and cuts him off, saying:
Dedicated page In August I wrote a dedicated page on this subjectparticularly on my persona experience having a home in a town where two nearby wind farms have been proposed.
Maybe I should delete this section, or maybe I'll leave it for possible historical interest? The claim that a proposed wind farm will cause social conflict is used by opponents as an argument against wind power; A proposed wind farm does sometimes, not always, cause disagreement among the local people; disagreement is not social conflict; Unscrupulous and dishonest people spreading misinformation about wind farms can certainly increase the disagreement; I have a house in Crystal Brook where at different times two wind farms have been proposed; I certainly have seen disagreement, but nothing that I would call social conflict; see below for more information.
The objection to wind farms on the grounds that they cause social conflict is something of a self-fulfilling prophecy; the harder the opponents work at producing objections most often based on exaggerations, misinformation and downright lies the more likely it is that something like social conflict will arise.
Misinformation and lies may cause social conflict Wind farm developments have few disadvantages for a hosting community and many benefitsbut some people have been very effective in spreading misinformation about wind farms while others have been very effective in causing quite unjustified fear regarding wind turbines and health.
These people produce fear and misconceptions about wind farms and this can then lead to social conflict when a wind farm is proposed. Wind turbines and health Interestingly, I can write in mid that a large part of the concern with a proposed nearby wind farm has related to "wind turbine syndrome": However, by this delusion seems to have run its course and is rarely mentioned any more.
I've written on wind turbines and health elsewhere on these pages. Sweeping generalisations and unjustified claims One wind farm opponent in the Darlington area of Victoria has made credible claims of unscrupulous behaviour by one wind farm developer.
He goes on to claim that the whole industry is corrupt and wind power is a scam. There are many people involved in the wind power industry, it would be surprising if they were all honest and ethical people. One or two unethical developers is not proof of a corrupt industry.
Even more, the presence of some bad people in the industry is not evidence that there is anything wrong with the principle of renewable wind energy.
Another opponent on the Yorke Peninsula of South Australia claimed that the local wind farm developer's describing a project as MW when it would generate an average of around MW was evidence that wind farm developers were pathological liars. If there is ever social conflict I believe it is caused by dishonest wind farm opponents telling lies about wind farms and wind energy.
The following are some examples of where there has been negligible disagreement in my region of South Australia alone: On those occasions when disagreement and what possibly may be called conflict have arisen, from my experience it is the spreading of misinformation and unfounded rumours about wind turbines that has been the cause.
I've heard of no social conflict regarding Hornsdale Wind Farm which was under construction in But there was something that might be called conflict when another wind farm, the Ceres Project, was proposed in between Wattle Point and Snowtown.
An active and particularly dishonest opposition group played a big part in this. He replied "There has been no 'significant and long-standing social conflict' from the lake Bonney or Canunda Windfarm developments — to the contrary there has been significant local community support for these projects.
On the other hand there is social conflict concerning wind farms such as Mount Bryana little further to the north-east, and Waubrain Victoria. So, there have been a number of wind farms built without social conflict. Social conflict only happens when people oppose wind farm projects and opposition often arises in response to misinformation about wind power.
The arguments for and against proposed wind farms do, no doubt, cause enmities. The fact is that any industrial development, especially a conspicuous one, is likely to lead to disagreement in some cases.
Disagreement is not conflict. People within a community have always disagreed about many things. So long as the discussion is rational and unemotional there is no need for real conflict.
The original was aimed at the NSW Government which, as well as cutting the solar power feed-in tariff, has shown anti-wind power sentiments. Bill Gresham is a sixty-plus year-old who feels so strongly about climate change and renewable energy that he did the km Walk for Solar from Port Augusta to Adelaide in September I met him there.
Social conflict — my own experience In mid the Crystal Brook Energy Park which included a wind farm was proposed close to the township where I have a house.
An earlier one had been proposed, but later dropped on financial grounds. I was very conspicuous in my support for both projects yet I was not shunned or abused, nor did I noticed anyone avoiding me.What Is Goldenseal?

Due to the generally sound construction of the Labrador, health problems are less of a big deal than they are in some other dog breeds. But as with most purebred dogs, there are still a number of Labrador health issues that have been identified.
Leaf Blower Noise and Its Consequences. Noise interferes with communication, sleep, and work. The U.S. EPA says noise degrades quality of life by impairing communication and social interaction; reducing the accuracy of work, particularly complex tasks; and creating stressful levels of frustration and aggravation that last even when the noise has ceased.
Dog skin disorders. Jump to navigation Jump to search. Skin disorders are among the most common health problems in dogs, and have many causes.
The condition of a dog's skin and coat are also an important indicator of its general health. Another is mange caused by Demodex mites (Demodicosis), though this form of mange is not contagious.
