17,000 dead bats/year in Oregon before a proposed 15-fold increase in wind energy.
The drumbeat behind the “green energy” movement is beating louder for wind farms across the landscape, especially on public lands. At the rate that things are going there may be huge effects on bats and birds of many types. Oregon Field Guide has done a segment investigating the impacts on bats in particular and they are severe.
I fail to see how something that causes such negative impacts on wildlife could be called “green”.
