Check out this risk assessment radar study conducted by Stantec

  

Important facts about the nonscientific Marbled Murrelet radar surveys conducted by Stantec in Humboldt County............

This bogus study was conducted in Humboldt County to assess the risk to Marbled Murrelets from 60- 600 ft tall turbines, spinning with blade tip speeds up to 300 mph.
As I stated in another earlier post, there are a number of problems with the Stantec radar surveys conducted for this project. Nobody should accept them as being accurate or even remotely scientific. In my many reviews of Stantec research, I have found that they consistently find ways not to see or find target species with their surveys. Stantec also fails to find or report the majority of carcasses being killed by wind turbines with their post operational mortality studies.

Read over the information below. The Stantec radar studies missed nearly a month and in some cases 2 months of very important murrelet nesting behavior. In the Spring there is activity and behaviors that would put them right in the rotor sweep zones of these turbines. Then there are all the blind spots and the lack of radar coverage with these surveys. Where are both the horizontal and vertical radar coverage for the rotor swept areas of all these turbines?  And with this missing coverage, where is all the radar data that shows all the others species that will be killed.

Many of the flight routes being taken by these murrelets into old growth timber near these turbine sites are not covered.
Murrelets are flying up and down the different drainages leading up to these turbines. But thanks to the poor research that's been conducted by Stantec, the people in Humboldt County have no idea how many nest sites are located in the region of these proposed turbines or how may murrelets are flying through rotor swept zones. This information is vital because these are murrelets that will be killed off from blades spinning with 300 mph tip speeds. They may pass through these rotors a few times, but eventually they will die. Especially with all their nocturnal flights and foggy coastal conditions. This is murrelet habitat that will be abandoned.

The 86 square miles of Altamont pass Wind Resource Area, including a large area that extends for miles in all directions, was abandoned decades ago by nesting golden eagles because of turbines.

Hannah Pingree on the Maine expedited wind law

"Once the committee passed the wind energy bill on to the full House and Senate, lawmakers there didn’t even debate it. They passed it unanimously and with no discussion. House Majority Leader Hannah Pingree, a Democrat from North Haven, says legislators probably didn’t know how many turbines would be constructed in Maine."

Maine Center For Public Interest Reporting – Three Part Series: A CRITICAL LOOK AT MAINE’S WIND ACT

******** IF LINKS BELOW DON'T WORK, GOOGLE THEM*********

(excerpts) From Part 1 – On Maine’s Wind Law “Once the committee passed the wind energy bill on to the full House and Senate, lawmakers there didn’t even debate it. They passed it unanimously and with no discussion. House Majority Leader Hannah Pingree, a Democrat from North Haven, says legislators probably didn’t know how many turbines would be constructed in Maine if the law’s goals were met." . – Maine Center for Public Interest Reporting, August 2010 https://www.pinetreewatchdog.org/wind-power-bandwagon-hits-bumps-in-the-road-3/From Part 2 – On Wind and Oil Yet using wind energy doesn’t lower dependence on imported foreign oil. That’s because the majority of imported oil in Maine is used for heating and transportation. And switching our dependence from foreign oil to Maine-produced electricity isn’t likely to happen very soon, says Bartlett. “Right now, people can’t switch to electric cars and heating – if they did, we’d be in trouble.” So was one of the fundamental premises of the task force false, or at least misleading?" https://www.pinetreewatchdog.org/wind-swept-task-force-set-the-rules/From Part 3 – On Wind-Required New Transmission Lines Finally, the building of enormous, high-voltage transmission lines that the regional electricity system operator says are required to move substantial amounts of wind power to markets south of Maine was never even discussed by the task force – an omission that Mills said will come to haunt the state.“If you try to put 2,500 or 3,000 megawatts in northern or eastern Maine – oh, my god, try to build the transmission!” said Mills. “It’s not just the towers, it’s the lines – that’s when I begin to think that the goal is a little farfetched.” https://www.pinetreewatchdog.org/flaws-in-bill-like-skating-with-dull-skates/

Sign up today and lend your voice and presence to the steadily rising tide that will soon sweep the scourge of useless and wretched turbines from our beloved Maine countryside. For many of us, our little pieces of paradise have been hard won. Did the carpetbaggers think they could simply steal them from us?

We have the facts on our side. We have the truth on our side. All we need now is YOU.
