Anger among residents living near wind farms
A court in the Netherlands has ruled in a landmark case that the oil giant Shell must reduce its emissions. One of the main reasons of this decision is the citizens’ right to an undisturbed family life.
The case has aroused surprise among the many residents of the Netherlands living near wind farms. They consider the nuisance of the wind farms a much greater and intolerable infringement of their right to an undisturbed family life. And they wonder why this right is suddenly no longer considered important by the government and the judiciary in the event of nuisance from so-called green energy production. In their opinion there is clearly being measured with 2 standards.
