    Gone with the Wind: Impacts of industrial wind turbines on our region and America’s public lands

    Over 50 industrial-scale “renewable” energy projects may soon change forever the face of our region in San Diego’s East County and neighboring Imperial County. Many are on formerly protected federal lands. Nationally, 370 million acres of public lands are targeted for big renewable energy projects – twice the size of Texas! East County Magazine editor Miriam Raftery has prepared a presentation for organizations that wish to educate their members about the impacts of these projects – and the alternatives.

In Southern California Condor habitat is being invaded by thousands of lethal prop wind turbines and everyone . . .

    Astounding facts about wind turbines and why they kill eagles

    At the Altamont wind farm in California, over 50 Golden Eagles die each year. Accurate figures from other wind farms are not available because of the high security at sites and cover-up by the wind industry. Why is this happening? The killer of Eagles and all birds of prey is Blade Tip Speed. This is what kills and this is what the wind industry does not put in environmental review documents. A wind farm that was recently approved in northern . . .
