Rachel Carson wrote, in Silent Spring:

Alternative Designs Are Better!

Wind Turbines Kill!


Spring now comes unheralded by the return of the birds, and the early mornings are strangely silent where once they were filled with birdsong.

Little did she know the movement she began would lead to the destruction she envisaged.

I’d like to announce the release of my third book:

Broken Wing: Birds, Blades and Broken Promises

This is in eBook format and is available for free Kindle Unlimited download. Dozens of avian videos introduce you to species at risk.


The bird videos are amazing! 

Please find a front and back cover attached.

Today’s wind turbines

Kill millions of birds worldwide: raptors are threatened with extinction

Require significant amounts of CO2 to manufacture

Deliver electricity intermittently, at best

Require enormous back up coal and gas fired power plants creating yet more CO2

Can be unhealthy or harmful to local residents

Are deadly – to core component manufacturers and maintenance personnel

Have enormous costs – paid for by the taxpayer

There are many alternative wind turbine choices that do  not harm birds or people and are far more cost effective.

Only the wealthiest investors take benefit from today’s wind industry. Most of us pay higher prices for their indulgences.

My intention is to encourage awareness of the entire story, of effective design choices and of how to bring change to your local community.

I hope you enjoy the book and its electronic format.

The story is important for conservation and for the environment.

Your comments are appreciated!

Thank you,
