Wind Power Carnage
A paper from the World Council for Nature on bird mortality caused by wind towers has been presented to the Australian Senate.The paper claims that bird mortality figures are being underquoted by orders of magnitude to hide the real damage caused by the machines. Read on.
“It is my duty, as President of the World Council for Nature, to bring to your attention the true extent of the carnage which is taking place at wind farms around the world, including in Australia. The deception being staged by consultants in order to fool people and their governments will have unfathomed consequences for wildlife, biodiversity, natural habitats, and the health of forests and agriculture. We are facing widespread corrupt behavior, which is putting private interests ahead of the common good.”
