Brussels warns Bulgaria over wind farms  

Credit:  paper.standartnews.com ~~

The European Commission has sent the second and the last warning to Bulgaria about wind farms and other economic projects in the region of Cape Kaliakra. Brussels experts maintain that Bulgaria has not observed the requirements of the environmentalists and wind farms in the region are detrimental to wildlife. Bulgaria has one month to respond to the statement of Brussels otherwise the case will be referred to the European Court of Justice. “Bulgaria has undertaken a number of economic projects in the region of Cape Kaliakra without considering their impact on the environment,” EC statement reads. According to EC experts, permits were issued for thousands of wind turbines and some 500 other projects without proper assessment of their effect on the unique habitats of birds, bats and other biological species in the region.
