How are cell towers and radiofrequency radiation impacting birds, bees and bats? Read U.S. Fish and Wildlife Services Reports

We’re seeing so many die offs now, globally & here in NZ. Recently here bees, blue bottle jelly fish, pipi, tuatua & eels. With no really substantial answers from mainstream. Doesn’t take a rocket scientist to notice how polluted our world is now that it’s miraculous anything survives at all in it. This article’s from 2009. Electromagnetic frequency is ramping up now & with 5G, how ever will these our friends, survive? We’re all part of the global food chain & ignoring that will surely be our own demise. The article points to 2035 for the extinction of bees.

How are cell towers and radiofrequency radiation impacting birds, bees and bats? New reports have been issued recently by Albert M. Manville, II, Ph.D., Senior Wildlife Biologist, Division of Migratory Bird Management, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (Albert_Manville@fws.gov). PDFs of the reports can be downloaded here:

The less publicized hazards of wind farms

Here are two articles brought to my attention by a local person who lives in the vicinity of Project Central Wind.

These farms that are promoted as green and healthy are, when truth is known, far from either. Search the articles here and on Youtube … you will find verification of this. They are heavily subsidized by governments and bring many health problems.

Here we have added difficulties highlighted, one being hazards for light aircraft and a death trap for bats. It’s also known they have a propensity to kill birds, understandably.

Pilots warn of a disaster as wind farms flourish

Sunday Express – Paula Murray – October 4, 2015 (windaction.org)

Wind turbines pose risks for light aircraft – an accident waiting to happen

“Light aircraft pilots have warned it is “just a matter of time” before wind farms cause a “disastrous” accident in Scotland.

Small planes along with helicopters, gliders, microlights and other hobbyists make up the biggest user group of the UK airspace in terms of low level flying and contribute some £3billion to the economy supporting close to 40,000 jobs.

Member organisations admit the fast-growing renewables sector has created some “fairly significant” issues which they have fought hard to resolve.

Their main concerns relate to downwind turbulence from the turbine blades plus problems with visibility especially in poor conditions…”

The fast pace of development mean maps and charts are often well behind of the size of existing farms and new developments with anenometer masts springing up to scout potential development sites.

Bats Killed in Large Numbers at United States Wind Energy Facilities

BioScience – Mark A. Hayes – December 1, 2013  (windaction.org)

Bat fatalities due to wind turbines

“The development and expansion of wind energy facilities is a key threat to bat populations in North America. Dead bats are being found underneath wind turbines across North America, and bat fatalities have been documented at almost all of the wind facilities at which thorough bat surveys have been conducted. This paper examines the scale of the problem. The abstract and conclusions of the paper are provided below. The full paper can be accessed at the links on this page.

Abstract (from bioscience.oxfordjournals.org)

Bats represent a substantial contribution to mammalian species diversity and ecosystem processes in North America, including their role in performing important economic service functions. The development and expansion of wind energy facilities is a key threat to bat populations in North America. Dead bats are being found underneath wind turbines across North America, and bat fatalities have been documented at almost all of the wind facilities at which thorough bat surveys have been conducted. The results….”
