#1 Altamont Pass has had wind turbines for quite a while; if they're still killing that many birds there, it must have been a very large population to start with. And you'd think by now the ones with some kind of aversion to tall spinny things that make funny noises would be winning the breeding race.

#5 I doubt those altamont pass numbers. Those turbines are never moving. I suspect someone extrapolated what the numbers *would be* if all of the turbines worked.

#7 Same with Beaumont Pass. The hills are lousy with turbines.

Not a lot of eagles though.

#8 As a birdwatcher, I have been aware of the bitter irony of the greens pushing wind power?

Oh, and I do believe they mean "red-tailed", not "rat-tailed". Looks like a reporter made a typo and then automatically selected the first correction spellcheck offered.

No, that was an inadvertent release of an "undiscovered species"; the type suitable for delaying a project during enviro-legal-warfare.

#12 Wind turbines are totally useless garbage. Even nuclear power stations have to be coupled with water turbines to pump water on mountaintop lakes to use nighttime excess power(they are difficult to wind down during low demand) High demand periods are just the time wind turbines shut down...and in windy times, the noise they make is like a million airplanes taking is unlivable where these pieces of crap are turning.

#13 Time back many Enviros + aligned also complained about Marine Turbines, be it surface or seafloor, etc. wiping out the fishies + corals.

Methinks what these Personages truly care about is the LAND underneath these KNOWINGLY DEFECTIVE,PRBLEMATIC, OR UNPROFITABLE SOLAR + WIND FARMS, i.e. mass tracts of land under direct or indirect Govt. control, regulation + SUBSIDY, in case the Govt. needs to use same as Collateral for bond-borrowing on International Markets to save or expand the US Welfare-Nanny State. IMO THE MAJORITY OF THESE ENVIROS, LETFIES COULD CARE LESS ABOUT THE CRITTERS OR THE AIR, RIVERS, ETC.
