I guess from a raptors' perspective Finluver may be...WRONG.
You are dealing with old, old news. Way back in the stone age, wind turbines were mounted on lattice towers, like power line poles. Birds saw a nice place to set down, and whack, they'd get hit by a blade on the way in. All modern towers, like in the past 20 years, have been mounted on tubular towers, with no such places to land. Also, wind farms are no longer situated in passes that are main migratory routes, reducing bird kill further. I'm not saying zero birds are killed by wind turbines, but compared to the number of birds killed by neighborhood cats, house or skyscraper windows, it's a tiny fraction.
Have a nice day.
So now it's not birds, now it's something else? It's not wind, it's batteries and solar power? You have a difficult time staying on topic.
Here is the situation. You can take your airplane and point it straight down, and when you land, there will be nothing left. That's Coal. That's nuclear. That's most hydro.
Or, you can glide the plane down. It might hit hard, and you might get hurt. But it's the better option than pointing it straight down. That's wind energy.
If you think these other forms of electricity generation are environmental disasters, it's because you're drinking the Kool-Aid that Big Industry is serving you. Because your statements are, simply, objectively, false.
I always thought Kittitas County was somewhat of an outlier on wind energy. I don't know if its the result of a more affluent population that has greater sensitivity to aesthetics or what, but projects in Kittitas seem to draw far more opposition than those in Klickitat or Columbia counties.
So what are you suggestions for better alternatives?I did Thank you.
There is nothing "green" about wind turbines, from the ground up.
For that matter, the same goes for solar panels, electric battery cars, etc.
They are "environmental" disasters!!
Your future off-spring(s) and theirs will Thank you, as well.
