AMSTERDAM – The first Dutch climate refugees are a fact, says De Telegraaf (via the GWPF).
Not because of wet feet, but because citizens cannot cope with the noise of wind farms.
Residents close to biomass power stations also complain bitterly.
Are health and the environment in the Netherlands subordinate to our climate goals?
“I do see a similarity with the Groningen gas and the Limburg mines: energy interests outweigh other interests.”
Every time he sent his Connexxion public transport bus across the Haringvliet Bridge, Claus aan de Wiel looked to the northwest with concern. Towards five wind turbines two hundred meters high, ten kilometers away, near Piershil.
“How’s the wind? Isn’t it too windy? What will it be like when I get home?” Will it be another evening where the turbine noise rumbles like a rolling, roaring surf above the TV? “I never slept a wink. Sometimes I got back on the bus after only three and a half hours of sleep.”
Windfear. The bus driver and his partner Ine van den Dool suffered from it after the Spui wind farm was set up five hundred meters from their house. The initiator still boasted about the Rolls-Royce among the windturbines – so quiet.
“But we were shocked. The noise was unbearable. The house was built by my parents, I grew up there and thought I would only leave between six planks, but we could not stand it ”, says Aan de Wiel.
Sound waves banged on the facades from three sides. Even the moles disappeared from their garden.
