Do not take into account what damage the wind turbines can cause?

CHRONICLE: Has the wind power developer on Haramsøya grossly neglected? This is the opinion of the resource group that says no to local development of wind turbines. The development may interfere with radar signals used in air traffic.

(Picture drawn by Inger K. Giskeødegård.)

Radar signals can be disturbed when eight wind turbines are built on Haramsøya in Ålesund municipality. The rotor blades from each turbine will cover 2 large football pitches in the air and will therefore be able to send signals such as «ping pong balls». No impact assessments have been made of the problem. Disturbed signal was a probable contributor to the Asker accident in 1972. Now it can happen again.

It turns out that our authorities are not based on new knowledge and new guidelines.

Journalism / "Stink journalism" against whistleblowersProfessor Gisle Selnes writes that Harald Stanghelle's article in Aftenposten on 23 February 2020 "looks like a statement of support, [but] lies as a framework around the aggravated attack on Assange". He is right. But has Aftenposten always had this relationship with whistleblowers, as in the case of Edward Snowden?
