Wind Turbines Don't Harass Farm Birds - British Research
Treehugger is one of my favorite websites as those who visit here regularly know. And it has some good news based on solid research: http://www.treehugger.com/files/2008/10/birds-not-driven-away-by-wind-turbines.php Wind turbines do not harass or kill farm birds as some fossil fuel pimps suggest. The study in question did not study bird-turbine collisions but that should come soon. In any case, engineers have already started looking at making wind turbines more bird friendly and incorporating their designs in turbines that are being sold as this is being written.
