Alby Schultz is a member of the Liberal Party of Australia, he retired as the Federal Member for Hume in New South Wales in 2013.

He opposes windfarm developments and believes wind turbines cause assorted detrimental health conditions. He is a proponent of "Wind Turbine Syndrome", a non-specific, medically unrecognised condition that does not stand any objective scrutiny. He also ignores (currently 19) reviews of existing research papers demonstrating no link between wind turbines and ill-health. [1]

Schultz has become the first patron of the Waubra Foundation, an organisation that claims to do medical research but is in fact a front for various wind energy opponent groups and individuals.

Notable quotes:

  • In 2007 several purse-pioneering union fat cats all resigned within a few short weeks from their directorships at Australian Super, the Australian super fund of the year. Where are they now? Greg Combet, former union boss and Julia Gillard's minister for climate change, tells us these turbines are necessary to mitigate the disastrous effects of global warming. So perhaps it was not a great look buying a beachfront property while all those polar bears are drowning.[2]
  • Industrial wind is a fraud of enormous consequence whose foundation is based on greed, ignorance, subsidy and entrenched institutional deceit. People who value intellectual honesty should not allow themselves to be quietly fleeced by such industrial treachery or even by their government's callous … indifference.[3]
  • They plunder our environment while enriching foreigners all under the guise of some mythical societal benefit. They take our health, our land, our peace of mind and our taxes[4]
  • In Hume alone, the subsidy for new wind turbines, excluding existing turbines, is set to reach $500 million to $1,000 million per year, or up to $10 billion over 10 years. This subsidy is equal to around $450,000 to $900,000 for each new turbine.[5]
