A scientific review of the Maple Ridge, New York wind turbine mortality studies
This comment and the attachment are very important. The people New York need to understand the caliber of the research being conducted on behalf of the wind industry. This unscientific research is and has been concealing significant turbine mortality impacts to species. The mortality studies from Maple Ridge are being used to estimate coming the mortality impacts from new wind projects like Horse Creek and Galloo Island. The estimates are not accurate or truthful.
If these projects are approved, it will have come from the State of New York accepting studies with absurd study methodologies that don't come close meeting Article 10 standards. I have looked over Article 10, it does not state anywhere that studies conducted on behalf of developers, are allowed to hide obvious facts or impacts with deceptive unscientific study methodologies.
I recommend that everyone read my scientific analysis of the severely flawed Maple Ridge research because this 3 year study, does not disclose obvious facts and impacts due to unscientific study methodologies.
