We are for green energy, but we are against Industrial Wind Turbines that slaughter migratory birds, kill bats, destroy fish & other aquatic life, and harm domestic animals.

Can Wind Turbines Cause Developmental Deformities In Horses?

horses-greenwichneighborsunited

The following is the summary of a case study of a group of Lusitano horses that have been monitoried over 4 years which were the subject of a masters thesis at the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine, Technical University, Lisbon completed in 2012.

The study was performed by Teresa Margarida Pereira Costa e Curto, ADVISOR: Dr. Maria da Conceição da Cunha and Vasconcelos Peleteiro CO-ADVISOR: Dr. Maria Luisa Jorge Mendes

The study reports the findings from a stud where 11 foals developed flexural deformities of the front limbs, after they were born. (Acquired flexural deformity of the distal interphalangeal joint).

In this stud farm, the owner has been breeding normal and physically sound horses since 2000. There were no changes in diet, exercise or any other significant alteration in management. Until in 2008, wind turbines were installed adjacent to the property and grazing paddocks. (Source: Read more)

Mink farm in the news, again

mink-farm-news
The fur farmer Kaj Bank Olesen now complains that, when the wind blows from the South West (where the nearby wind turbines are), mother minks attack their own puppies – those that were born healthy after the 1,600 miscarriages of last month (1). As a result of their wounds, over twenty puppies had to be put down, and 40 put in observation. Mr Olesen, the owner and operator of the farm, made a short video showing the large wound inflicted to a young mink (Source: Read more)

“We are all as vulnerable as these mink” (Denmark) – Wind Turbine Syndrome

vulnerable-as-these-mink
Editor’s note: We reported on this story the other day. It’s going viral — as it should! Writes Mark Duchamp on behalf of the World Council for Nature, which broke the story on worldwide media:

This scandal is likely to mark a turning point in the struggle against wind turbines. Because it is no longer a question of “noise,” “nuisance,” or “quality of life.” There is now evidence of birth defects, miscarriages, and stillbirths. Indeed, what happens to minks can happen to humans – the human fetus. And the more powerful the turbines, the more infrasound they emit. The problem will only snowball. This news could ultimately bring down the whole wind energy scam. The immediate problem, however, is that the media are censoring anything that would hurt the wind industry. We need to smash the media blockade. We must write to newspapers, call radio stations, challenge our MP’s, senators, mayors and government councilors. Let us turn the issue of ill health effects into a workhorse, and the Danish mink tragedy into a spearhead. The mink are but the latest in a long list of domestic animals being slaughtered or deformed by wind turbines. Note that animals can’t be accused of having “psychological hangups” regarding wind farms. The argument that “it’s all a nocebo effect” is rendered absurd by this episode. The media can no longer ignore the issue — provided we put it under their noses a thousand times. We have new documents on the Danish mink tragedy: the report of the veterinarian involved, a video, and a second newspaper article from Denmark. The mink story furnishes us with powerful arguments against misplaced wind turbines. The main one being that wind turbine low frequency noise, including infrasound down to 0.1 Hz, is harmful. We must now insist that turbine noise and vibration be measured inside the homes of windfarm neighbors. We are all as vulnerable as these mink.

Wind turbines ‘killed goats’ by depriving them of sleep

INDUSTRY Power 1
Late-night noise from spinning wind turbines on an outlying island of Taiwan may have killed 400 goats over the past three years by depriving them of sleep, an agricultural inspection official said on Thursday. (Source: Read more)

This is Absolutely Horrific. Just Think What it is Doing to Humans….

danish-mink-farm
Denmark: 1,600 animals were born prematurely at a mink farm last month. Many had deformities, and most were dead on arrival. The lack of eyeballs was the most common malformation. Veterinarians ruled out food and viruses as possible causes. The only thing different at the farm since last year has been the installation of four large wind turbines only 328 meters away.

Killer Wind Turbines

Bill Snape of the Center for Biological Diversity explains why killing endangered species is okay as long it’s a wind turbine doing the deed. (Source: Killer Wind Turbines)

Do Wind Turbines Harm Animals?

With an increasing number of industrial-scale wind turbines around the world, numerous reports are surfacing to suggest that noise, infrasound and stray voltage (dirty energy) may be harmful to livestock and wildlife. (Source: Do Wind Turbines Harm Animals?)

U.S Wind Turbines Kill 1.4 Million Birds and Bats Every Year

Many of the birds and bats killed by wind turbines are endangered and protected species. (Source: U.S Wind Turbines Kill 1.4 Million Birds and Bats Every Year)

Are Wind Turbines Killing Innocent Goats?

The noise from turbines could be killing livestock as well – or, at least, playing a part in their deaths. (Source: Are Wind Turbines Killing Innocent Goats?)

Do Wind Turbines Harm Animals

Incidences of mass die-offs of farm animals, chickens laying soft-shelled eggs, high animal miscarriage rates and disappearance of wildlife near turbines provide pause for reflection. (Source: Do Wind Turbines Harm Animals)

On a Wing and Low Air: The Surprising Way Wind Turbines Kill Bats

It is the pressure change – not the blades – that wipe out thousands of bats annually at wind farms. (Source: On a Wing and Low Air: The Surprising Way Wind Turbines Kill Bats)

How long will the Wind Industry deny the problem? For as long as the money keeps coming.

“Unexplained mass die-offs of livestock have occurred near some wind farms. In New Zealand, 400 goats dropped dead. In Wisconsin, a farmer lost most of his cattle herd after turbines went in.” (source: How long will the Wind Industry deny the problem? For as long as the money keeps coming)

Horses get Wind Turbine Syndrome (Portugal)

‘Horses, as well as humans, suffer from being in close proximity to wind turbines, strongly suggests a study performed last year at the School of Veterinary Medicine, Technical University, Lisbon, Portugal.’ (source: Horses get Wind Turbine Syndrome (Portugal))

Wind Farms: More Harm Than Initially Realized?

“The Wirtz family raise alpaca and have a breeding herd. Ann says the alpaca became jumpy the first day the turbines went on line. “Normally they are so calm. But the day the towers started up, they seemed to panic. They were on their back legs right away. Since the wind farm started up, their temperament has changed and none of the females have been able to carry a pregnancy to full term.” (source: Wind Farms: More Harm Than Initially Realized)
