NEW STUDY: GERMAN WIND TURBINES KILL 1,200 TONS OF INSECTS PER YEAR March 12, 2019 | Michael Krueger, Science Sceptical blog A new study finds that around 1,200 tons of insects are killed p.a. by wind turbines in Germany alone. In Germany, there are currently around 25,000 wind turbines installed. For some years now, it … Continue reading NEW STUDY: GERMAN WIND TURBINES KILL 1,200 TONS OF INSECTS PER YEAR
This new study raises another question on Industrialization of agricultural and wilderness areas. What is the effect of continued low frequency noise on plants? For crops like corn that are pollinated by wind this might not be an issue, But for other crops this might have negative effects if plants increase nectar sugars expecting pollinators … Continue reading Flowers can hear buzzing bees—and it makes their nectar sweeter
Wind Turbines kill birds. The Huron Mountains and Highlands, are a diverse biome containing Highlands, Cedar and Hemlock lowlands, Boreal Forests, wetlands and multitudes of streams, temporary wetlands, Beaver ponds ... Prime bird habitat, and Insect habitat. What happens if thousands of the birds are killed off by turbines? Birds eat 400 to 500 million … Continue reading Wind Turbines kill birds – birds eat insects. The results could be devastating.
Grunting for worms: seismic vibrations cause Diplocardia earthworms to emerge from the soil O. Mitra,1 M.A. Callaham, Jr,2 M.L. Smith,1 and J.E. Yack1,* ABSTRACT Harvesting earthworms by a practice called ‘worm grunting’ is a widespread and profitable business in the southeastern USA. Although a variety of techniques are used, most involve rhythmically scraping a wooden … Continue reading Seismic vibrations cause Diplocardia earthworms to emerge from the soil
Nature and Society, October-November 2011, pp. 7-9 LIGO - Laser Interferometric Gravitational Wave Observatory VIRGO - European Gravitational Observatory in Pisa (LIGO), University of Oregon, near the Stateline Wind Project, and the (VIRGO) in Pisa, near a small wind farm, have done detailed measurements of the generation and transmission of seismic vibrations from large wind … Continue reading LIGO study of the transmission of seismic vibrations from large wind turbines
