“In the existing State Environmental Plan of the Republic of Slovenia, in an Act on Nature Protection and Landscape Conservation, the Karst Regional Park is defined as a binding starting point of the Republic of Slovenia, which has to be taken into consideration by all local environmental plans by local municipalties. As a matter of fact, sly withdrawal of the wind turbine power stations on the edge of the planned park or Nature 2000 is neither an honourable nor a cultural act, because it is a well-known fact that influence of low frequency acoustic waves (LFAW) and infrasound spread out from a point at some considerable distance away (more kilometres), and birds and people as well never stop on the edges.
There are some people there who are not aware of one fact therefore it is worth warning that the proposal for enlisting ofthe Slovenian Classic Karst to the World Heritage UNESCO List as one of the most genuine and typical examples of the Karst area in the whole world has already been made (see link: http://whc.unesco.org/en/tentativelists/590/). For a proposal to be accepted, only the professional expertises are needed, which will »with the support of wind turbines« definetely not be able to pass the strict requirements of UNESCO, moreover the committee will not be even given an opportunity to get the genuine feelings about what Karst and its typical and genuine nature actually are.
The wind turbines of such a great wind power capacity and extensiveness which they want to set up in Senozeska Brda DO NOT IN ANY WAY REPRESENT GREEN ENERGY:
– There will be a permanent destruction of our forest of about 400.000 m2 – that means the size of more than 40 football pitches,
– 15.000 m3 of concrete – that means approximately the size of 30 smaller blocks of flats – will remain in our soil forever – even after the removal of wind turbines, after their lifetime is over (20 to 25 years),
– Due to the instability of wind, wind turbines will not contribute to the lower CO2 emissions,
– If the wind turbines are set up, we will have to sacrifice the last parts of our genuine nature, which is our treasure, and NOT an obstacle to progress,
– Gigantic wind farms on vast flat fields or coasts of oceans that can be seen in some other countries are not appropriate for Slovenia and as a consequence they would have a dramatic impact on our small country Slovenia. Therefore they cannot be set up in this small, unique and hererogenous Slovenia,
– Negative impacts of wind turbines on people and animals have been well-known for a long time, but unfortunately the current legislation and policy of Slovenia is out-of-date
THEREFORE LET US SAY NO TO WIND TURBINES IN THE VICINITY OF OUR HOMES.
