Fish Yes–Birds No

Nature Magazine May 10, 2007 page 126: An article titled –Wind Farms’ deadly reputation hard to shift – points up an interesting inconsistency in the environmental policy. The article indicates that presently 40,000 birds are killed each year in the US alone by whirling wind turbines. Some of these birds are on the endangered lists. The number of birds killed is likely to rise steeply because the number of wind farms, with more and larger turbines are increasing at a rapid rate.

There is an interesting duplicity in this article. The author makes points supporting the continuing of building bird killing ‘green wind farms.’ Why is that OK even being encouraged and building of fish killing ‘green dams’ is not even on the table? Are fish more important than birds?

The president of a wind power company, states, “If you give the Fish and Wildlife Service control over the wind-power industry, there will be no more wind power.” Is our environmental policy partially to blame for global climate change? If global warming is so alarming, and it is going to be stopped, its not going to be by building wind farms and tidal power, or solar power and it is not going to occur without major impacts personal and environmental.
