Pierpont shreds Big Wind Junk Science

McCunney wins WTS.com’s Rubber Duck Award 2010!
In November 2010, Robert J McCunney, MD, one of the authors of the AWEA-CanWEA farcical report on Wind Turbine Syndrome (2009), filed a comparable report with the Public Service Board of the State of Vermont. Once again, he attempted to trash Wind Turbine Syndrome.
The following month, Pierpont cooly reduced his report to rubble. Click here for McCunney’s report and Pierpont’s response. (See related editorial, “Pierpont KO’s McCunney.”)
WTS.com takes this opportunity to acknowledge Dr. McCunney’s on-going scientific contributions to Wind Turbine Syndrome by awarding him our annual Rubber Duck prize.*
*The Rubber Duck Award was established two years ago by Canada’s Financial Post (FP) to recognize extraordinary achievement in Junk Science. “Winners are scored on the degree to which they succeed in meeting FP’s standard definition of Junk Science: When scientific facts are distorted, when risk is exaggerated or discounted, when science is adapted and warped by politics and ideology to serve another agenda.”
