Opponents to Wind Farms.

In preview posts, we described some benefits about the Wind Power. We usually hear wind power is a renewable, clean and a safe energy source. However, this kind of power has got disadvantages as well. Noise, visual impact, weather changes, birds mortality are just examples. This video is the trailer of a documentary film that shows us those problems. Spectacular and painful the image of a vulture bird brought down by a wind turbine blade.

The video is just one piece of the work from associations, organizations and people who think wind farms bring more problems than advantages. Maybe, the most famous organization is Country Guardian created in 1991 in the UK and although they are not opposed to wind energy as such, they condemn the abusive construction of wind farms nearby population centres and natural landscapes. It is not the only, they are more in Europe and America.

From my point of view, although wind power has some advantages compared with the traditional ones, we need to keep in mind that they bring problems to people and animals as well. Therefore, these organizations are a good way to have a global perspective and wind energy is not a solution, it is just an alternative.
