I wonder how this article made it in the latest magazine printed by Illinois State University!
ISU is a big pusher of wind energy, so this article is out-of-place. Somehow it didn’t make the on-line version of the magazine or I would have linked to it.
If you are Facebook friends with me, I’m sure you’ve seen a constant supply of articles extolling the health hazards of wind turbines.
I sure didn’t expect to see this article from ISU. Every year they hold a Renewable Energy Conference that praises wind. See last November’s Conference HERE. When I testified before the McLean County Zoning Board of Appeals a guy from ISU was there proclaiming no health hazards or decreases in property values exist because of turbines. I think it was the same guy who questioned me about my claims of the new types (which are taller than Waterson Towers) being even more dangerous to health. He tried to tell me that bigger isn’t bad.
I wonder how long it will take to bury the findings of this story. I live by turbines and have seen a marked decrease in bats. Can I blame the turbines, other than the decrease started when they got put up? No, but maybe this guy can:
Even if truth hurts, it’s still truth and deserves to be heard.
Here is the link to the stories ISU did put on-line: https://news.illinoisstate.edu/illinois-state/
Maybe the bats story will get added.
