Below are four video documentaries about adverse heath effects associated with wind turbines recommended by TLVA volunteer, Richard Jinkins of Cobb, Wisconsin, Iowa County. Richard has been avidly studying the phenomena for several years since discovering that members of his family personally experience ill effects from the existing, small, turbine installation near Montfort. WI. The same area would be impacted by the Uplands Wind proposal. In addition to the videos, Richard provides a large file directory with other videos, research papers, maps and other informative resources one can browse through.
