Windfarm experts publish no research and had no face-to-face meetings last year

An independent scientific committee on wind turbines established by the Coalition in 2015 failed to hold one face-to-face meeting last year and failed to have its research accepted by peer-reviewed journals.
The independent scientific committee on wind turbines
 was created by Tony Abbott to advise on the science
 of potential health impacts of wind turbines. In two years
it has held no face-to-face meetings, and has had no
 research published.
The independent scientific committee on wind turbines was created to advise on the science of potential impacts of wind turbines on people’s health.

It was an initiative of the former prime minister, Tony Abbott, who had previously called windfarms noisy and “visually awful” and who created the position of a “windfarm commissioner” to handle complaints about turbine noise in a deal with anti-wind senators in mid-2015.
