http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052970203706604574376543308399048.html Basically whats going on is that Exxon got whacked with some high fines for birds dieing on their property; which is fine - if they aren't doing what they could reasonably do to prevent it they need to pay; yet wind farms seem to get a free pass. The excuse is that its either too expensive financially or politically to do anything. I have also read that wind farms are even more deadly when it comes to bats. sorry, but wind needs to take a back seat to solar; for a green source; until they can figure out how to not to be so murderous to animals. This is just nuts that one aspect on an industry can wholesale slaughter wildlife all because its good for the environment... just not the animals environment.
