Wind Farms: More health Issues



Industrial wind turbines kill millions of bats & birds, worsening an environmental & epidemiological crisis





Bat and Bird Kills by Wind Turbines

Since the year 2000, industrial wind turbines have overtaken all other causes of mass mortality events for bats in North America and Europe – Multiple mortality events in bats: a global review

Wind farms bring the Egyptian vulture to near-extinction in Andalusia





Save the Eagles International has been blowing the whistle on bird slicing wind turbines since its foundation in 2011, and I personally since 2002. Most ornithologists, affected by conflicts of interest, have been denying all along that species of rare birds could face extinction because of the installation of wind farms in their environment. New findings prove they were wrong.

Death of four Egyptian vultures alerts to the danger of wind farms near the Strait



18-06-2017 – Our translation of an article published by the Spanish daily ABC.es


The recent killing of four Egyptian vultures by wind turbines on the Spanish coast of the Strait of Gibraltar caused new alarm about the dangers these constitute for flying wildlife.

Windfarms kill 10-20 times more than previously thought

Wind farms are actually slaughtering millions of birds and bats annually

Even “carefully-sited” wind turbines may attract bats, swallows and raptors from kilometers away, to their death.

The Whooping Crane, condemned to extinction by windfarms:



The only sustainable population of whooping cranes in the wild is declining, concurrently with the invasion of their migration route, the Central Flyway, by over 2,000 wind turbines and their power lines. Nearly one hundred of these critically-endangered birds were lost this year, i.e. one third of that population. Yet the US Fish & Wildlife Service continue to approve more wind farms in that migration corridor. The extinction of the Whooping Crane in the wild won’t take long.

Another massacre comes to light


 

SPAIN: 40 to 60 great bustards killed by the power lines of the Villasilos windfarm.

This compares to a previously estimated population of 260 individuals, immatures included, for the whole province of Burgos. The Villasilos area being the principal habitat in the province for these heavy, 10-14 kilo birds, where most of them show up at one time or another, the windfarm is actually acting as an ecological trap, a population sink for this endangered species. This is how “carefully” the wind industry places its windfarms. – STEI

Eagles have been killed in large numbers by wind turbines, e.g. 3.000 golden eagles over 25 years at the huge Altamont Pass windfarm near San Francisco. It was built on the very hills where young, transient “goldies” come from all over California to hunt and interact. This is causing a decline in the California population of golden eagles. See ANNEX (A) of the following article:      www.iberica2000.org/Es/Articulo.asp?Id=4242

White-tailed Sea Eagles are being killed by windfarms in Norway, Sweden, Germany, Japan, Scotland and the Netherlands; Bald Eagles in Canada;  Golden eagles in the US, Sweden, Scotland and Spain; Wedge-tailed Eagles and White-bellied Sea Eagles in Australia; eagles from 5 different species in Spain, all condemned to disappear because of the government’s “green” policy:   www.iberica2000.org/Es/Articulo.asp?Id=3071

In Australia, the Tasmanian Wedge-tailed Eagle will become extinct because of a biased, faulty and misleading environmental study which permitted the construction of 7 windfarms in its habitat: www.iberica2000.org/Es/Articulo.asp?Id=4382


The eagles and millions of other birds (and bats) are being decimated worldwide by windfarms and their power lines. Yet it has been demonstrated that wind turbines are redundant, as they need the help of fossil fuel power plants to be viable:  http://www.iberica2000.org/Es/Articulo.asp?Id=4540
