A new study finds that the winds that blow through the state of New Jersey each day are making cancer patients die of the disease.
The study also found that the state’s windmill pollution is killing more people than a decade ago.
“This is the first time that we’ve seen a number of deaths associated with windmill pollutants, so it is really important that we get this to the public health community,” said Dr. Richard A. Schmitt, an epidemiologist with the Center for Environmental Health Research at the University of New Hampshire.
He said windmilling has been linked to respiratory ailments and heart attacks.
In his study, published in the journal Environmental Health Perspectives, Schmitt and his colleagues tracked windmill emissions in a New Jersey county from January 1, 2014, to January 1 of this year.
The team found that windmill pollution had caused an average of 10,000 deaths per year for the period, which is double the national average of about 1,600 deaths per annum.
Windmills account for about 2% of New York City’s power generation.
Windmill emissions were so high that Schmitt’s team compared the average daily pollution levels to the average annual pollution levels in every state.
New Jersey had the second-highest daily emissions in the nation at 5,500 megawatt-hours, more than double the annual pollution level in most states.
Wind turbines emit a large amount of carbon dioxide, which has a negative impact on the climate.
The pollution levels were so bad in New York that Schmitts team used a computer model to see what could be done to reduce pollution levels.
Schmitters team compared pollution levels at windmowers with the pollution levels recorded at the sites of windmill operations in the state, as well as the pollution concentrations in the surrounding areas.
Wind power plants in New Brunswick and Gloucester have the most pollution.
Schittts team also found high levels of particulate matter, which can be dangerous for health.
The researchers also found low levels of ozone, which could be linked to lung cancer.
“The level of pollutants in the atmosphere, which are the primary pollutants responsible for causing cancer, are extremely low,” said Schmitt.
“There is no question that pollution is one of the major contributing factors to the deaths of people who work in windmiller operations.”
The researchers said that they are working with other scientists to find ways to reduce the amount of pollution from windmamps.
The research also shows that wind farms are one of several sources of pollution that are causing health problems.
“Windmills emit pollutants such as nitrogen oxides, sulfur dioxide, particulate pollutants and carbon dioxide.
The pollutants also have direct effects on human health,” said the study.
“A wind turbine does not produce energy and does not make any environmental contribution.”
Windmilling is an inefficient form of energy production because it requires a large, open, flat area for turbines to operate.
Wind energy also has a long lifespan and does no direct work that creates CO2.
“Most of the pollution associated with turbines is nitrogen oxiding and particulate particles,” said co-author Dr. Michael Schmit.
“Nitrogen oxides are the pollutants that cause most of the respiratory ailments in the air, and they also cause lung cancer and other diseases in humans.”
Windmilling also causes nitrogen dioxide, so the nitrogen oxide particles are the main pollution from the windmower.
Schimts team is currently working with the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection to see if there are ways to cut pollution. “
One of the things that we’re looking at now is how to get data on the effects of these emissions on people’s health,” he said.

They hope to find out if there is a way to reduce nitrogen oxidant emissions by switching to natural gas.
“Natural gas is an efficient way of generating power,” Schmitt added.
“It’s a clean source of energy.
But we don’t know exactly how much pollution we are creating by using natural gas.”
