Whatever you do, don't read this

Like Simon Chapman, I don't know what effects, if any, wind turbines have on people's mental and physical health. Unlike Simon Chapman, I don't go around making sweeping statements and bald assertions on the subject in the hope that people will mistake me for a medic or scientist.

A recent Select Committee report concludes that 'many of [Chapman's] assertions do not withstand fact check analyses'. This will come as no surprise to those of you who are familiar with the blowhard sociologist's previous work on such projects as plain packaging. The committee's full assessment of Chapman's claims has been posted on the Catallaxy Files blog. It's all rather embarrassing for him so please don't read it and don't share it.
