Is the wind turning in the UK?



To wit: November 3rd 2014, a Scottish newspaper airs our concerns. It’s a first.

Press & Journal: cover-up of golden eagle deaths


To wit: November 4th 2014, a frontal attack on the RSPB makes the headlines of Britain’s biggest newspaper. The British media had never published any criticism of the bird society before.

Scotland: more manipulations


Golden eagle census delayed for two years, without good reason



“The truth about the real effects of wind farms on Scotland’s golden eagles was given a chance to become public knowledge in 2013, with the 10-year-scheduled survey. But this truth was forced back into the obscure corners of the blogosphere. The vast majority of Scottish voters will only find out in 2015, if ever, what has been the cost to Scotland of windfarm disinformation, if only in terms of eagles’ lives.”

STEI to USFWS: “Your responsibility in the ongoing massacre of our great birds, and that of the bird societies which look the other way, is paramount. Some will consider your actions as being no less than criminal. Indeed, there is such a thing as a crime againt wildlife. You ought to know.”

eagle take permits - dead eagle


Tell Interior Secretary Jewell the issuing of a 30-year incidental take permit for wind farms is unconscionable, and must be reversed.

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
