Lies on the US Department of Energy Web site

The latest post about the Department of Energy prompted me to go back a few years and retrieve this information. In May 2010, before I could absolutely prove that the wind industry was rigging their mortality research and hiding over 90% of turbine mortality, I posted this information below.  For anyone that does not believe that the Department of Energy is not corrupt and in the wind industry's pocket, just look over propaganda posted on this site. It has been there since 2005

                                                                                                                                                                                       I just looked over the Department of Energy fact sheet again and Fact 11 is missing. It should read that for wind energy development  to be successful in our Democracy requires a government willing to support an industry that relies on rigged research, corruption, and gag orders to prosper.

From "Wind Energy Myths Fact Sheet"


9.   Wind turbines kill birds and thus have serious environmental impacts. Bird kills have caused serious scientific concern at only one location in the United States: Altamont Pass in California, one of the first areas in the country to experience significant wind development. Over the past decade, the wind community has learned that wind farms and wildlife can and do coexist successfully. Wind energy development’s overall impact on birds is extremely low (<1 of 30,000) compared to other human-related causes, such as buildings, communications towers, traffic, and house cats. Birds can fly into wind turbines, as they do with other tall structures. However, conventional fuels contribute to air and water pollution that can have far greater impact on wildlife and their habitat, as well as the environment and human health.

10.   Wind turbines are noisy. Modern wind turbines produce very little noise. The turbine blades produce a whooshing sound as they encounter turbulence in the air, but this noise tends to be masked by the background noise of the blowing wind. An operating modern wind farm at a distance of 750 feet to 1000 feet is no more noisy than a kitchen refrigerator.

What should be on US Department of Energy Fact Sheet



Fact. Millions of Birds are killed by wind turbines each year. Most are protected species and some are endangered. Wind turbines are the most likely cause for the recent population declines of bird species throughout Europe because tens of thousands of these turbines have invaded their habitats.  Migratory bird species that visit Europe are also in a rapid state of decline. Wind turbines are lethal and are known to kill every species of bird that is forced to share their habitat them. The developers of Altamont pass had so little concern for the death of thousands of eagles, hawks, owls, and vultures from wind turbines that they added more turbines and greatly expanded the Altamont Pass wind resource area.  Access to other wind farms in America was greatly restricted because of the negative publicity from Altamont Pass.  House cats, cars, buildings, any most other human related activities are not a factor in the survival of many rare species bird because of the isolation of their habitats.  Aside from deforestation, the primary human activity that kills protected bird species across the world is the invasion of propeller style wind turbines into their isolated habitats.


Fact, Wind turbines are very noisy and most wildlife species are equipped with far superior hearing than humans.  It is true that wind turbines produce little noise if one listens from a mile away but that is of little consequence to the people and wildlife that are forced to live close to them. The relationship between noise and stress is well documented in people. There could be an even greater disturbance to wildlife from wind turbine noise because of their superior perception to sound.                                                                                                                                                                          


Facts found on The Poland Wind Energy Site           


4. Development of wind projects is likely to cause:

a. Bird mortality caused by collisions with operating turbines and/or elements

of auxiliary infrastructure, in particular overhead power lines;

b. Decrease in population due to loss and fragmentation of habitats caused

by deterring effect of the wind turbines and/or development of

communication and energy infrastructure related to operations of the wind


c. Disturbance to populations, in particular to short- and long - range bird

migrations (the barrier effect).

5. Mortality caused by collisions and loss of habitats are key in terms of likely

adverse effects on birds populations.

6. The extent of effects on bird population is diversified, depending mainly upon

the location of the wind turbines – from almost no or negligible effects on life

expectancy of bird population, to significant effects with significant loss of

habitats and high mortality caused by collisions.

7. The type of wind turbines used in a project (tower height, rotor diameter,

lighting, linear speed of rotor blade tips), number of turbines within the farm,

layout of the farm (relative to each other and elements of the environment) or

presence of other wind farms in the vicinity (cumulated effects) also affects

the type and magnitude of the effects. The last element will grow more

important as the density of wind farm location increases.


8. In general, the risk of adverse effects on birds is higher if a wind farm is located

on an area extensively used by birds. Investments located in such areas, in

particular areas with high intensity of bird migrations in the airspace, have

greater potential for adverse effects than projects developed in locations of

low intensity of birds’ use of the airspace. Conversely, the areas with low

migration intensity are characterized by lower risk of adverse effects.

The Monarch butterfly migration would be devastated is these turbines are along located along their migration routes. The same applies for bee and other insects.

I wonder what effect the wind turbine conspiracy is having on the unique Monarch butterfly migration route?

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


(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 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?" 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.”
