After reading this hidden information from Europe, .................... Let us always remember this publicized cover story for all the hundreds of migratory birds that were at killed the Laurel Mountain wind farm. All theses birds involved in this nocturnal mass fatality event, supposedly flew into a substation building with a light left on .................... http://green.blogs.nytimes.com/2011/11/09/nearly-500-birds-found-de...
Between Oct. 3 and Oct. 18, searchers found 484 carcasses, which were analyzed by biologists. Blackpoll warblers made up 65 percent, and ovenbirds, 7.5 percent. Twenty-eight other species were found, including thrushes, cuckoos and one green heron. Nine birds were listed as unknown.
The American Bird Conservancy said this was the third such incident in West Virginia, and it suggested that the solution was to turn off the lights. In fact, that is what technicians at the site did after discovering the dead birds. ( Pay attention Lake Erie litigants, because ABC, just like Audubon has, will take you right down the garden path)
“This is the largest bird kill at a U.S. wind facility that I’m aware of,”’ Kelly Fuller, the wind campaign coordinator at the conservancy, said in an e-mail. She emphasized that the wind turbines themselves were not involved.
"A wildlife biologist based in Topsham, Me., with the consulting service Stantec reported that his firm’s field inspectors had found 314 dead birds near the wind farm during an inspection on Oct. 3. “Carcasses appeared very fresh, with mortality likely occurring on the previous one to three nights,” the report said. No dead birds were found near the wind machines themselves." Had the New York Times been honest or actually investigated, they could have reminded readers that recently Stantec's wind industry research has come under great suspicion after reporting impossible results for years that defy the Laws of Motion and Gravity. They could have mentioned that even Jim Wiegand has proclaimed this frequently used company, the North American Kings of bogus and non scientific wind turbine mortality research because of their absurd results.
