The Obama administration has opened up a new front in its war on America’s eagles. For years, the president has relied on wind turbines to orchestrate his eco-genocide. Biologists estimate that wind farms kill as many as 328,000 birds each year by chopping them out of the sky. The administration’s successful weaponization of solar farms will only accelerate the death rate..
Wind farms kill roughly 0.27 birds per GWh.
Nuclear plants kill about 0.6 birds per GWh. (2.2x wind)
Fossil-fueled power stations kill about 9.4 birds per GWh. (34.8x wind)
Fossil-fueled facilities are 17 times more dangerous to birds on a per GWh basis than wind power. Wind turbines may have killed about 7000 birds, but fossil-fueled stations killed 14.5 million and nuclear 327,000 per year.
There are solutions to avoid killing birds in wind farms. Not that you care, but most wind farms are in god-forsaken schytt-holes, where there are no eagles, notably, Texas, Oklahoma and Wyoming. There are also infrared paints that warn birds to avoid the wind farms. In aforementioned schyttholes (Texas, Oklahoma, Wyoming,) the birds that get killed are hardly eagles.
You sound like Jay Carney spinning out of control when backed into a corner......there happen to be wind farms in Oregon, Washington, Minnesota, Iowa, California and many, many more Staes where Eagles thrive including Alaska...... Read it again you idiot...328,000 birds killed per year by these energy powerhouses........the article was talking about solar fields now going up in the Southwest and how the wildlife killing will substantially increase.........PETA and the tree huggers in a knife fight, going to be a riot to watch!!!!
What would you choose? 0.000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000001 degrees reduction in earth's temperature (maybe) over the next 50 years or kill 16,500,000 birds ( many endangered) over the same period.....loony left at its best!!!!
