Wind Turbines kill birds – birds eat insects. The results could be devastating.

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.

Seismic vibrations cause Diplocardia earthworms to emerge from the soil

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

LIGO study of the transmission of seismic vibrations from large wind turbines

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
