Sweden shuts down all wind turbines within 25 miles of ten military airports.

Previously we posted about the two US Senators from Oregon holding defense department appointments hostage until the White House interceded with the Pentagon to expedite approvals.  Needless to say, they got their way!

Now, the Industrial Wind Action Group has this:  Last week, the Swedish Armed Forces quietly made a “principal decision” that all planned and permitted, and even already built, wind turbines will be stopped in a radius of 40 kilometers [about 25 miles] of ten military airfields where jet fighters of type JAS 39 Gripen land and take off. [JAS 39 Gripen is a multi-mission supersonic aircraft, made by Saab, and is the main fighter and attack aircraft in the Swedish air force.]

Exactly what does Sweden know the US Government does not?
