The people of Maine need to ask themselves..........How corrupt is Audubon? Judge for yourselves from the information provided below. In a 2010 settlement at Altamont, Audubon accepted fraudulent research that was supposed to have reduced raptor mortality by 50%. The truth lies not in the estimates, twisted logic or research data manipulations, but in the actual carcass data from Altamont studies. While the extremely biased estimates, deflection and the media said one thing, the true numbers were showing the opposite, that raptor and golden eagles fatalities had increased by 2-3 times. In this case mitigation funding for dead eagles could be another way of saying BRIBE or sellout since Audubon was being paid to do and say virtually nothing that would have helped these eagles. The wind industry and Interior Department dirtbags call giving away funding for those in on the gig, Compensatory Mitigation. For more information on this read Page 54 from the meaningless U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Land-Based Wind Energy Guidelines. Also keep in mind that it is all the dirtbags that get to set the value on resources like the eagles lost to turbines and also use rigged research to hide the real numbers. Financial arrangements with groups like Audubon or I should say payoffs with conflicts on interest, are now much more hidden with newer wind energy developments.
