    Well, all you “Eco-followers should read this. You beg to save the Spotted Owl and Darter Fish but push to have more of these killing machines all over the place. Read more @ The horrific reality

    Collateral damage. The eco-fascists don't give a damn.

    Well..now that you are on Wind Turbines..where are you facts and figures for glass buildings? How about power lines? Airplanes? Cars? Having lights on in cities 24 hours day?

    Forgive me if I find your "concern" somewhat dubious. Millions of birds and bats have been getting killed by the things I mentioned and for decades.

    So in your book it is OK fine to introduce a means of killing between 13 and 39 million more because of your political leanings?

    So in your book it's okay to kill 20 six and seven your olds because of your political leanings?

    This is just a case from a small group of wind turbines in W VA:

    [ame=http://youtu.be/3tSW-DDIdnY]Wind Turbines Take Steep Toll On Birds And Bats - YouTube[/ame]

    The turbines have become predator heaven for scavengers, whose population, if left unchecked could be harbingers of diseases that humans can get. That is not a good thing.

    When we lose a specie, the world loses codependent species. That is not good in the web of life. :(

    If you people actually ever showed any concern about the effect of industrial pollution on the environment, I might take your ramblings seriously.

    Getting the mills so they kill less birds and bats is an engineering challenge. Doable.

    Isn't a bird a lot smaller, and fly much faster than the blades? It seems to me that the birds could see something as big and slow as a wind-turbine blade and just fly off in a different direction. Dumb birds..
    I say so what that a few birds are killed. They fall to the ground and become part of nature's food chain.
    Other creatures will eat on them and survive because of their sacrifice. Thus there is no loss..
