“I Could Throw Up”…”Wind Power Mafia” Clandestinely Destroys Rare Stork Nests To Clear Way For Turbines!

German real environmental activist Andreas Kieling here at Facebook has posted a video showing the gruesome and sickening destruction of birdlife by windmills and tells of an alleged premeditated criminal dismantling of rare black stork nests by the “wind power mafia”.


The video is in German, but the pictures are of universal language.

At the start of the video Kieling shows 3 birds and 2 bats of various endangered species that he and his dog allegedly found in just 15 minutes at one single turbine. “That’s unbelievable,” Kieling announces. He is visibly disturbed by this.

The high profile activist believes that the number of birds killed is likely much higher, because many of the victims are soon dragged off by scavenging animals such as foxes during the night.

The birds have little chance against the wind turbines, as the blade tips travel at speeds of up to 270 km/hr. At the -3.15 mark:

That means a bird that flies in the vicinity underestimates this speed and gets cut to pieces, as is the case with this one.”

He adds that for bats it is not even necessary to be hit because the under-pressure created by the blade swooshing by causes the bats’ lungs to burst.

Also at the -2.38 mark Kieling explains that predatory birds also have no chance because they often fly with their heads looking down in search of prey, and so never see the high speed turbine blades. They end up getting “shredded”.

What’s really bad is that wind developers are planning even more, larger turbines close by.

“Wind power mafia” destroying stork nests

If things were not bad enough, Kieling tells of stork nests only 1000 meters away that were criminally dismantled, likely by the “wind power mafia” in order to clear the way for the new turbines. At the -2:05 mark he shows a large oak tree that was allegedly once home to a black stork nest for more than 40 years. He explains:

Suddenly the nest disappeared without a trace. The same happened to the secondary nest. The storks often have two nests. It was about 800 meters away. Also disappeared without a trace. The wind park is just about a kilometer away. And it is probably the reason for this.”

“I’m so angry I could throw up”

Kieling explains how storks like to build their nests on large trees located near streams, not up in the tree’s crown but on the fork of a large branch. The nests he says can grow to weights of up to 500 kg over 20 to 30 years, and thus the branch and nest can eventually collapse under the weight. At the -1.00 mark he explains:

But under this tree you’d find some remnants of the nest or the broken branch, and this is precisely not the case. Not for this tree, and not for the other tree. And in the neighboring town where I live, Ahrenberg, it’s the same – there’s been a black stork’s nest since a long time. This one here was the last black stork nest in the North Eifel area. In the meantime the number of storks has fortunately gone up again. But I ask myself just how concealed and hidden do these birds have to live before they aren’t bothered. What is happening here is criminal. This was done by professionals. In the forest, under the tree, there are no traces of anything. The tree branch fork is very much intact, but the nest is gone. The nest was dismantled. Likely it was done using aluminum ladders and the nest material was carefully scattered in the surrounding area in the forest. At the other nest the exact same thing. I’m so angered; I could throw up. What can you do – it’s a battle against the wind turbines.”

In the meantime not a peep of protest coming from WWF or other high profile environmental groups. Kieling’s frustration and sense of desperation are understandable. We can only wish him the best in the fight against this crony “wind mafia” and the deplorable politicians who look away.

    The stupid foot soldier Greens slowly realize that their Green party – and the other two Green parties, SPD and CDU – have no interest in the environment at all – and all the interest in the world to steal and redistribute 31 billion Euros a year in Germany alone.

    1. yonason

      “The stupid foot soldier Greens slowly realize…”

      “useful idiots” I believe is the correct term for them, and I doubt the majority (like sod) will ever “realize” anything worthwhile. Even long after the scam as been exposed and terminated, they will continue to believe that was the right thing to do, and how could it ever have been thwarted, unless by those evil heretical skeptics.

      And what’s the destruction of one stork’s nest (and millions of raptors and bats), or a civilization for that matter, when there’s a planet to “save?” Some sacrifices must be made, …by others of course, but never by themselves.

      They are nothing if not destructive, and probably not a little pathologically insane.

  2. AndyG55

    Expecting sob to appear any moment to EXCUSE, CONDONE or more likely, WORSHIP wind turbines.

    Anyone that can think they have ANY use in a civilised, environmentally friendly society, is totally SICK and PUTRID to the very core of their soul.

    In Ontario a few years ago a wind company removed a Bald Eagle’s nest (and tree), one of 57 active nests in the province.

    If you read the comments on his facebook page, you will find multiple people contradicting his claim about the numbers of dead birds found under wind turbines.

      So he’s working for the German State TV, and a proven liar (which is surely coincidental as we know the German State TV wouldn’t ever lie to us).

      This makes it even more interesting. Maybe the German propaganda apparatus shifts against the fetishes they have erected at our expense.

    sod right on time it seems. However, I will say that 5 different endangered birds dead under one turbines sounds highly suspicious.

    The major problem here is the environmentalists threw fits about DDT, etc and demanded the birds be saved. Now they could not care less about birds, as the birds are in the way of their wind turbines and all that precious government money associated with them. It was always about the money.

    1. sod

      “However, I will say that 5 different endangered birds dead under one turbines sounds highly suspicious. ”

      It does not make any sense. We would expect multiple common birds among the dead, with those rather are ones being rare (though buzzards are rather common birds of prey, but still rare in comparison with other birds, of course).

      But as i do not know anything about the guy (i just googled his name, and the wolf story was one of the first hits) or the wind turbines he is talking about, i think it would go far to assume that he is cheating again.

      “The major problem here is the environmentalists threw fits about DDT, etc and demanded the birds be saved. Now they could not care less about birds, as the birds are in the way of their wind turbines”

      Here you go totally wrong. DDT (and similar stuff) obviously is a real threat to birds. It could kill all birds of prey, before we even notice. They could all be poisoned to a level keeping them from reproducing and we would only notice, when it is too late. That is, how chemicals work. DDT is still killing birds today, by the way:

      http://www.scientificamerican.com/article/ddt-still-killing-birds-in-michigan/

      Wind turbines can not do anything similar. their mechanical impact simply can not eradicate a species. It is impossible (unless we build a huge wind park in the last and single habitat of a species at the brink of extinction). We also would get early warning about alarming kill rates and could choose to take countermeasures.

      So the really interesting thing is: What makes bird lovers of the folks thht hate the environment, as soon as wind power comes up?

      1. AndyG55

        “but still rare in comparison with other birds, of course”

        And getting RARER… of course.. (thanks to wind turdines)

        1. AndyG55

          But if you use concentrating solar.

          they are no longer “rare”… but “well done” !

          1. yonason

            Or, as a friend would tell the waitress when she asked how he wanted his steak “When you can write with it…”

    2. yonason

      It’s all about destroying civilization. They were only pretending to care about birds, because getting rid of DDT caused more people to die.
      http://www.discoverthenetworks.org/viewSubCategory.asp?id=1259

      And now “caring” about birds would be contrary to their agenda of wasting vast resources by investing them in useless junk, so they don’t even pretend to.

      They are consistent. Everything they do is to destroy and harm, and nothing they do is to build or help.

      It may be on the high end, but here’s a photo of 2 dead birds under one turbine.

      The ignoramus sod writes – “Wind turbines can not do anything similar. their mechanical impact simply can not eradicate a species”

      If they are endangered, then any loss of breeding stock puts the entire species at risk. You do not have to kill ALL of them, only enough to reduce the gene pool sufficiently to make them sterile.

      Here’s a good debunking of the “DDT killed ’em” myth, with extensive references.

      1. AndyG55

        Not only that, but many of the birds of prey mate for life.

        Take out one of a pair… no reproduction… end of that gene pairing.

        It really is TOTALLY SICKENING that anyone with a soul can worship these avian crucifixes…

        but that’s sob for you.

    This is the final result of abandoning the scientific method for zealot fanaticism, as have the warmists. Once you are on a holy mission to save the world, anything is permissible: Fudging data, locking up those that don’t agree with you, and secretly killing endangered species — which ironically environmentalists once wanted to save.

    Warmists have divided the world into the greedy and the good, and cannot conceive that green energy cronies seek profit with the same zeal the fossil fuel industry does.

      Yeah, you are absolutely right.

      I can easily imagine a group of greens and environmentalists, climbing that tree and strangling those young black storks for the greater good of wind power.

      Looking at the picture, i have to admit:No, i can not imagine any such thing.

      But i can imagine a TV guy (who gave us dogs while pretending that they are wolfs), holding a roadkill buzzard in front of a wind mill to advertise his next show.

      And, by the way, i can also imagine the commercial side of wind parks (investors, huge companies, construction companies) doing all sort of bad stuff to keep their business going. But most of those people would not qualify as being “environmentalists”.

      I also can imagine a member of a green group, who has fought for a wind park, scaring away some birds out of fear that they threaten his project. I can not imagine several such people collecting huge number s of dead rare birds below their turbines every day. Sorry.

      1. AndyG55

        “But most of those people would not qualify as being “environmentalists”

        NOBODY who thinks wind turdines are a good idea is any sort of an environmentalist.

        sob certainly has no love at all for the environment.

      Ahh, but they are NOT out to “save the world.” They are out to destroy it. Telling you the want to save it is just a ploy to get you to THINK they do, and get you to help, or at least keep you form interfering with their plans.

      In another thread sod kept asserting that my info was out of date, and that solar was doing just fine, but…

      “William Hogan is the Plank Professor of Global Energy Economy at the Harvard Kennedy School (HKS) and Harvard’s resident expert on the electric grid—and his message might be hard to hear for those who view solar’s apparent success as good news and a positive step in addressing the global threat of climate change. Solar’s problem, Hogan says, is fairly simple: it’s too expensive. Forcing it onto the market through the subsidies, tax credits, and favorable pricing common today will cause unintended consequences that twist the electric market into knots, potentially driving utility companies bankrupt.”__________________________
      http://environment.harvard.edu/news/huce-headlines/whither-solar-power

      In other words, solar is only “good” for select investors, while the rest of us sucker get stuck with the bill.

      sod is no better, caring nothing for anyone enough to bother being careful about what he selects to believe, and to try to convince others to believe, despite a wealth of information to the contrary.

      As to the “Renewable Energy” con artist racketeers, they could care less one way or the other if civilization survives. They are just out to line their pockets at our expense, and the harm they do is just fine with greenies like sod.

    The EV mafia says, 4000 EUR payout on buying an EV in Germany, as decided by the SPD-CDU government is not enough to compensate for the disadvantages of EV’s; demand constant subsidation of any EV.

    The SPD-CDU government punishes productive work through taxation and rewards backward technologies that destroy productivity – so they will get more distruction of productivity.

    1. DirkH

      …the constant market-distorting subsidation projects of the SPD-CDU government show that these people are money-drunk and that the German economy will go to hell – as long as these nincompoops are not chased out of office.

    2. sod

      “The EV mafia says, 4000 EUR payout on buying an EV in Germany…”

      No idea, why you bring up EVs under this topic.

      But EV sales are up basically everywhere, reaching 1% of new car sales in the US:

      http://www.scientificamerican.com/article/electric-car-sales-up-despite-low-gasoline-prices/

      It is even higher in the UK, where the number is starting to stop the first sorts of support mechanisms (free loading).

      http://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/surge-in-electric-car-sales-brings-end-to-free-charging-on-motorway-8fmfs0k3n

      I am not a big fan of the 4000 euro scheme, but some sort of introduction support is needed for most new technologies. Basically this is an attempt to help german car producers to not lose the next market completely. The change will be more rapid than you think.

    AND ANOTHER THING…!

    I’m tired of hearing defenders of wind farms raptor and bat abattoirs tell me that cats kill far more “bird” per year.

    Yeah, they kill sparrows and other small fry. A few weeks ago the cat most likely responsible for the demise of a small bluebird the week before was sulking behind some shrubs in my back yard. A bluejay was shrieking loudly and attacking it, and it was terrified! And a bluejay is no raptor.

    Then there was that smallish raptor on my neighbor’s TV antenna (yes some people still have those), at about the time I found the tail, hind legs and back furry remains of a squirrel in my bird bath. I bet if that cat had been available, it would have been cat instead of squirrel-bits that I would have found.

    What the wind turbines are killing isn’t sparrows, but big raptors that reproduce less often with fewer offspring, and I am sick to death of those demented greenie liars telling me that’s no different than someone’s pet cat snatching the odd tweetie bird.

    1. AndyG55

      I once threw a chicken carcass out for my cat.

      5 minutes later this pitiful meowing.

      The cat was sitting plaintively about 5m from the carcass, as a pair of magpies helped themselves.

      1. yonason

        Like the bluejay, the magpie isn’t easily intimidated by a house cat

      There are slightly more cats than birds. I bet the kill ratio per turbine is greater than the kill ration per cat. I need a grant to research this

    Did anyone notice that the dead birds appear to have fallen all together at the place where the blades rotate slowest ?
    What proportion of dead birds are killed by turbines ? As opposed to window panes or vehicles ?

  12. terastienstra

    What a strange idea, that there is a place where the blades “rotate slowest”. So windmill blades have variable rotation, in radials per second, at a specific place around the axis.

    And how can turbines kill a proportion of dead birds? They kill them double dead? Do we have to count steam and gas turbines as well?

    These questions are not very scientific…
