WIND FARM ADDENDUM


9/10/2013  08:32:27                             WIND FARM ADDENDUM

IN ANSWER TO A QUERY I RECEIVED ON MY POST CONCERNING WIND FARMS.. AND ENDANGERED SPECIES..  I DID FURTHER RESEARCH. 

DO NOT CRY MR. ELEPHANT.. DO NOT CRY MR. DONKEY MAN.. MANKIND EVER SLOW WILL LEARN.. LEARN TO UNDERSTAND..

DO NOT CRY MR. ELEPHANT.. DO NOT CRY MR. DONKEY MAN.. MANKIND EVER SLOW WILL LEARN.. LEARN TO UNDERSTAND..

I WENT TO A CORPORATION.. KNOWN TO ME AS SOLID.. THAT EVALUATES.. AMONG OTHER THINGS.. HOW AN OPERATION COMPLIES WITH ENVIRONMENTAL LAWS AND WHEN POSSIBLE NEEDS OF A SPECIES.. 

ONE WIND FARM WAS OFFERED ME IN EXAMPLE.  IMPERIAL COUNTY HAS A RATHER LARGE WIND FARM THAT FALLS IN THE PATH OF AN ENDANGERED SPECIES..  THEY HAVE A ‘SPOTTER’ WHO HAS THE JOB OF SEEING BALD EAGLES WHEN THEY ARE APPROACHING.. (BEING AN ENDANGERED SPECIES).. THE WIND FARM.. UPON DETECTING AN APPROACHING EAGLE.. SHUTS DOWN FOR NO LESS THAN 1/2 HOUR.. ALLOWING THE EAGLE TO FLY OVER IN SAFETY.. 

IN THE AREA OF ‘PAYING THE FINES’.. AND ‘BUSINESS AS USUAL’.. I WAS INFORMED.. THAT THOUGH THAT IS PROVINCE OF LAW ENFORCEMENT.. THEY KNEW.. THE LAWS CONCERNING ENVIRONMENTAL VIOLATIONS ARE IMMEDIATE CLOSURE OF THE PLANT.. DAILY FINES.. AND PROOF OF PROCEDURE IMPROVEMENTS COMPLYING TO WHAT IS NEEDED. 

FOR THOSE CYNICS.. I DO UNDERSTAND THESE RULES WERE AVOIDED IN OTHER WAYS.. CREATED ‘NECESSITIES’ OF KEEPING THE PLANT OPERATIONAL ‘NO MATTER WHAT THE ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT BECAUSE.. SOMEONE NEEDS IT.. OR THE OTHER EXCUSES THAT PUT HORRIBLE THINGS IN OUR OWN ENVIRONMENTAL PATH.. WE ALL LIVE HERE.. WITH THAT.. AND THE CURRENT POLITICAL CLIMATE.. I BELIEVE THERE IS OVERALL.. COMPLIANCE WITH CURRENT LAWS..  (there are other environmental situations involving commodities which are more visible in day-to-day life where a corporation.. or person who has the middle name.. ‘hedge fund’.. are in different legal approach and context)

WITH REGARD TO MY QUESTIONS ABOUT SIMPLY ‘SIGNALING’ OR IN SOME WAY USING SOUND OR LIGHT TO DETER THE SPECIES FROM THEIR PATH IN A MORE VIABLE.. INEXPENSIVE EFFORT.. IT WAS POINTED OUT TO ME THAT THE SENSES OF ANOTHER SPECIES MAY JUST IGNORE THE DETERRENT.. (as I say it.. ‘in favor of thousands of years of developing to environment’).

About cryinforthedyin

I write philosophy and poetry. I postulate solutions for problems..I find similiar things in history to compare to present day, hoping to find a solution to the seemingly difficult task of giving and receiving love. I play music. Blues harp, piano, guitar, electric and acoustic. I sing..I love to sing..Peace Tony
