Turbine Blades Kill Birds and Bats

Wind turbines chop birds to death. The wind industry has successfully lobbied lawmakers to allow wind turbines to kill birds, including Bald Eagles, for the next thirty years. Allowing Canisteo Wind Energy & Eight Point Wind to kill our region's Bald Eagles and rich variety of avian life is unthinkable and unforgivable.

Bats, for some yet unknown scientific reason, are very attracted to wind turbines. Unfortunately, research shows that bats are also especially vulnerable to wind turbines due to the pressure drops that occur as wind moves through the blades causing an air pressure change that rapidly expands and bursts their small lungs and blood vessels.

The proposed siting of these industrial wind projects would have devastating effects on the area's bird and bat populations.
