Unexpected Harm By Wind Mills

July 2, 2009


More on the topic of the unintended consequences of alternative energy solutions and “geo-engineering.”

This time, goats are dropping dead.  Seems they can’t get a good nights sleep because of noisy wind turbines.

Following is an excerpt from the BBC story published in late May:

Windfarm goat

Wind farm ‘kills Taiwanese goats’

A large number of goats in Taiwan may have died of exhaustion because of noise from a wind farm.

A farmer on an outlying island told the BBC he had lost more than 400 animals after eight giant wind turbines were installed close to his grazing land.

The Council of Agriculture says it suspects that noise may have caused the goats’ demise through lack of sleep.
