Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) analyzed more than 50,000 home sales near 67 wind facilities in 27 counties across nine U.S. states, yet was unable to uncover any impacts to nearby home property values.


Word of the Day
obdormition
  • Sleep; the state or condition of being asleep.
  • The state or condition of numbness of a part due to pressure on a nerve: as, the obdormition of a limb.
The word 'obdormition' comes from a Latin word meaning "to fall asleep".
