FACT: Wind Turbines and Solar Towers attract and Kill Insects and Birds

Written by Dr. Judy Ryan

Dear Reader,
Below the line is a public letter that I sent to To the Western Australia Premier and Ministers for the Environment and Energy on behalf  of Dr. Marjorie Curtis and myself. The title is evidence based and self explanatory. Please read on.

Dear Premier

We write to object strongly to the UN appointed Environmental Protection Agencies (EPAs) acting against the wishes and democratic rights of the Australian people. They, the EPA have conducted a Mickey Mouse investigation into a massive hybrid wind and solar factory in Western Australia; and apparently have approved its construction.
 
This is despite the fact that the wind turbines are 26 kilometres from Eighty Mile Beach and 13 kilometres from Mandora Marsh, both of which are visited  by international and local migratory birds that congregate in that wetland area in the hundreds of thousands.
Why does the EPA  ignore the indisputable video evidence that wind turbines are a lethal attraction to birds? 
 
They also ignore the indisputable evidence that the beam from a solar power tower, which apparently is essential for large scale commercial factories, attract and kill insects and birds.(See link below and scroll down to play the video).
 
We note that there is an appeals form addressing damage to the environment at this site. https://www.appealsconvenor.wa.gov.au/environmental-impact-assessment.  We note that we are expected to  pay for the right to appeal. FYI we will not be paying money, that possibly goes to a foreign body,  for what should be our taxpayer funded entitlement .
We also note that this appeal information was not made public until  around May 4th yet the appeal closes on May 18th.
We respectfully suggest that this is insufficient response time. Therefore the WA government needs to extend it.
Our final point is that the UN puppet EPAs should be abolished throughout Australia. We already have our own Federal and State Environmental Departments. The EPA’s  presence in our nation is both a financial drain on our economy and a threat to our legal system. The evidence shows that they overlay their version of international law above Australian law and then try to enforce. In some instances they are succeeding. That is why they have to go ASAP.
In conclusion, if there is anything that we have said that you think is untrue then reply to this email to inform us. Otherwise all that we have stated above stands as the unchallenged truth and we are prepared to swear to it in any court of law.
Respectfully Yours

    Judy and Marjorie,
    This was all news to me. It would be nice to see the economic justification for this project, including details of the level of public funding. The latter especially important given the high financial overhang from the Covid19 reaction cost.

    On the technical front, I propose an investigation of the fuselage turbine design to protect avian species as much as possible.
    Details are available at https://bosmin.com//turbine/bturbine.pdf
    The Australian fuselage turbine design can operate over a much wider range of wind speeds which improves the operation of the wind farm generally.

      A letter from Robert Beatty to the WA Premier and Ministers. FOR THE PUBLIC RECORD.

      Hon Stephen Dawson MLC
      Minister for Environment; Disability Services; Electoral Affairs

      Dear Minister Dawson,
      I am writing to you following the public disclosure of this proposed project, and the inadequate two week period for public comment – which has now expired.

      Apparently this is a United Nations project which gets the ‘flick and approved’ from the WA government? This process leaves much to be desired from an Australian Nation perspective, and creates a very unwelcome precedence.

      It would be nice to see the technical environmental justification for this project as well as the economic modelling, including details of the level of public funding. The latter especially important given our high financial overhang from the Covid19 reaction cost. What cost is Australia committed to either directly or indirectly for this project? What rate of return can be expected from this project, and what will be the unit cost of the electricity produced?

      One technical front consideration I can propose, is an investigation into the Bosmin Australian Fuselage Turbine design to protect avian species as much as possible. Details are available at https://bosmin.com//turbine/bturbine.pdf

      The fuselage turbine system can operate over a much wider range of wind speeds as well, which would improve the operation of the wind farm generally, as well as providing local engineering and export opportunities.

      I look forward to your comment.

    Robert, thank you for commenting. The only thing I can suggest is to write to the W.A. government with your questions and suggestions. Then please submit that letter as a comment to this article. I also request others who have emailed me about this monsterous solar/wind project to write to the WA governmnent and then post their letter as a comment on this article. It then becomes part of the public record. I predict that the W.A. government will ignore your letter or just send a pro forma bland response. Therefore in 2 weeks you/we can publicly expose their lack of due diligence. We use this comment site to publish either your resend reminder email or their bland proforma response.

    Here is the arrogant proforma response from the UN controlled Environmental Protection Agency

    Dear Dr Ryan

    I refer to your email correspondence dated 15 May 2020 to the Premier and Ministers for Environment and Energy appealing the decision of the Environmental Protection Authority’s (EPA) report and recommendations in relation to the above proposal.

    In order for your appeal to be considered as a valid, an appeal fee is payable in accordance with Regulation 7(c) of theEnvironmental Protection Regulations 1987. The $10 appeal fee payment can be made online using BPoint via our website here.

    We note your concerns about appeal fees and advise that under the Environmental Protection Act 1986, the Minister for Environment may waive or refund an appeal fee. An application for a waiver needs to be in writing addressed to the Minister via this Office, setting out the reasons justifying the request.

    It would be appreciated if you could advise your intentions at your earliest convenience and no later than Friday 22 May 2020.

    If payment is not resolved, the appeal will be considered invalid and will not be investigated.

    Should you have any queries in relation to the above, please contact this Office on 6364 7990.

    Kind regards

    I did respond within the time frame. However all I got was another message on repeating the same thing.

      You show great perseverance Judy,
      These guys do not work for the people, they are a law unto themselves.
      I have not received any response from the Minister’s office yet.
