Wind turbine syndrome in animals?

There is a news article out of Denmark: “Denmark: 1,600 animals were born prematurely at a mink farm this month. Many had deformities, and most were dead on arrival. The lack of eyeballs was the most common malformation. Veterinarians ruled out food and viruses as possible causes. The only thing different at the farm since last year has been the installation of four large wind turbines only 328 meters away.”

It is quite interesting because it would now allow for an actual scientific, double-blind test.  Minks could be observed with cameras by a researcher that does not know where the minks are located.  If the minks near the wind turbines kill their young, that’s strong evidence.  Then the minks get moved around and rated again.  If those near the turbines again attack their young and miscarry at high rates, that is very strong evidence that the turbines are the cause. This is just one place and more study is necessary.

“We do not believe any group of men adequate enough or wise enough to operate without scrutiny or without criticism. We know that the only way to avoid error is to detect it, that the only way to detect it is to be free to inquire. We know that in secrecy error undetected will flourish and subvert”. - J Robert Oppenheimer.
