Author:  Egan, Emily

Judgment of Ms. Justice Emily Egan delivered on the 8th day of March 2024 Ballyduff, Enniscorthy, Co. Wexford— 582. I find that there are frequent and sustained periods during which AM [amplitude modulation] values are conservatively in excess of 5 or 6 dBA. I also find that there are regular periods during which the AM values are considerably in excess of 6 dBA, in the order of 10 dBA or more. I find that such high AM values exacerbate the . . .

Clear away with your useless turbines

Author:  Glenties Windfarm Information Group

Download the MP3 file. Buy the higher-quality track at Bandcamp. This is a song based on our experience of wind farm planning applications in the Glenties/Ardara area of County Donegal, Ireland. The furtive secrecy, the lack of public consultation, the absence of cost/benefit analysis,the lies about employment, the environmental destruction caused by wind farming and its associated industries, and the need for communities to simply say no, not under these conditions. —Glenties Windfarm Information Group, 2015 stopthesethings.com/2014/08/16/how-much-co2-gets-emitted-to-build-a-wind-turbine/ irishenergyblog.blogspot.ie/2015/04/cost-benefit-analysis-obligations-for.html www.bbc.com/future/story/20150402-the-worst-place-on-earth (((( . . .

Forest bat activity declines with increasing wind speed in proximity of operating wind turbines

Author:  Ellerbrok, Julia; Farwig, Nina; Peter, Franziska; and Voigt, Christian

[Abstract] The increasing use of onshore wind energy is leading to an increased deployment of wind turbines in structurally rich habitats such as forests. Forest-affiliated bats, in turn, are at risk of colliding with the rotor blades. Due to the legal protection of bats in Europe, it is imperative to restrict the operation of wind turbines to periods of low bat activity to avoid collisions. However, bats have also been observed to avoid wind turbines over several hundred meters distance, . . .

Some Sobering Facts – Viking Energy Wind Farm

Author:  Permar, Roxane

I go through phases when I’m obsessed with facts about the Viking Energy Wind Farm in Shetland. Perhaps this compulsion to collect information is fuelled by my disbelief – I cannot comprehend the scale; I cannot understand the way some people, including those who gave the green light for consent here in Shetland, unthinkingly accept information without questioning the veracity of the facts, from the potential consequences of the human and environmental impact involved as well as the ethics behind . . .
