To the Editor: By his deployment of ad hominem arguments, outdated or industry-sponsored research, comparison to an unrelated phenomenon, and a biased selection of case studies and research reports, I fear the pro-wind-industry opinions expressed by Chapman1 will only serve to exacerbate the psychogenic and sociogenic processes he laments.
