As I posted earlier, the carnage of birds and bats on Wolfe Island by the 86 wind turbines there has been substantial, making news around the world. Now some ornithology heavyweights – William Evans and Gerald Smith – are calling for a moratorium on turbines in the eastern Lake Ontario and St. Lawrence River valley. Good for them, although I doubt it will do much good at this point. In both New York and Ontario policies have been set and contracts let. Still, it’s good to see the real experts (as opposed to the mercenaries at Stantec, the industry’s consultants) weigh in on the issues there, along with many details that lend credence to their pleas. Well worth the read.
