I love them, but we can’t have them everywhere: Premier on wind farms, The Age, Tom Arup, 13 April 13,  Premier Denis Napthine has declared his personal love for wind turbines, but says his government’s restrictions to where they can be built won’t change….. ”

I think they are majestic, and I actually love them.”..
A review by the National Health and Medical Research Council found in 2009 that there was no published scientific link between wind farms and adverse health impacts. The council is now updating its review to
