My "health effects of wind turbines" paper, unpaywalled #pdftribute

Most everything I have written for public consumption, or at least everything that is still worth reading, is publicly available somewhere.  As my readers know, I am a harsh critic of that joke/horror of an institution called the academic publishing industry, and tried to have as little to do with it as I could manage.  But one paper that ended up behind a paywall is my analysis of why the epidemiologic evidence clearly shows that industrial wind turbines (IWTs) cause health problems in nearby residents.

In honor of the #pdftribute campaign for Aaron Swartz I am breaking the paywall and making that paper freely available here.

He was a true champion for making information that is part of our common heritage (and paid for by all of us) available to all of us.  And, sadly, apparently also an example of the toll that depression takes on many people with great vision.
