Death and Destruction by Wind Turbines!

Wind technology has been around for centuries and has been used as a source of energy for a long time. As technology has improved, wind turbines have become more efficient and have been increasingly used as a source of renewable energy. However, there are dangers associated with the use of wind technology.
One of the dangers of wind technology is the impact it has on the environment. Wind turbines are often located in scenic areas, and the construction and operation of these turbines can have a negative impact on the wildlife and ecosystems in the area. The turbines may disrupt mating and nesting patterns of birds and cause damage to flora and fauna in the area. Many birds have been killed by the massive blades with graveyards growing beneath turbines around the world.
As far back as 2012 wind energy company ESI Energy Inc. (ESI) paid more than $8 million in fines and restitution and serve a five-year probation after pleading guilty to violating the Migratory Bird Treaty Act, according to a statement released by the United States Department of Justice. Very little press has been shared about this issue.
Another danger of wind technology is the risk of turbine failure. Wind turbines are complex machines with many moving parts, and with time, parts can wear out, leading to turbine failure. A malfunctioning wind turbine can cause serious damage to property or even be a danger to the public.
In addition, the location of wind turbines can pose risks to human health. Noise pollution and the low-frequency vibrations generated by wind turbines can cause health problems such as sleep disturbance, headaches, and nausea. The flicker effect of the blades of the turbines can also cause seizures in people with epilepsy.
And another danger of using wind technology is the risk of cyber attacks. As wind turbines are integrated into the larger energy grid, they become vulnerable to cyber-attacks. Hackers could disrupt the power supply or cause damage to the turbines by manipulating control systems.
Wind technology can be expensive to install and maintain. While the cost of wind turbines has decreased in recent years, the cost of  the installation and maintenance of the turbines remains relatively high. The cost of wind energy may be prohibitive for many countries, leading to increased reliance on non-renewable sources of energy.
In conclusion, wind technology is not without its dangers. While it is regarded as a cleaner and renewable source of energy, it must be implemented with care to avoid negative impacts on the environment, wildlife, and public health. The risks associated with wind technology must be carefully considered and mitigated to ensure a safe and sustainable energy future. What’s needed is a honest debate about these issues, which seems to be harder and harder with the current political environment.
