Environmentalists Seeking Dead Birds

NBC News reports that environmentalists are excited about the prospects of more wind farms like the one pictured below at Altamont Pass, California.

A mixed vote on global warming: Ballot measures lose, but Democrats gain power

The Altamont Pass wind farm kills about one Golden Eagle every three days, and has killed more than 10% of the current Golden Eagle population in the western US.

The most recent survey of Golden Eagles  across four large Bird Conservation  Regions (BCRs) in the West (80 percent  of the species’ range in the lower 48  states is in these BCRs) provided an  estimate of 20,722 Golden Eagles of all  ages across the survey area.


Dr. Shawn Smallwood’s 2004 study, spanning four years, estimated that California’s Altamont Pass wind “farm” killed an average of 116 Golden Eagles annually (2). This adds up to 2,900 dead “goldies” since it was built 25 years ago.

Global warming insanity has completely destroyed the environmental movement, which is one of the main reasons I do this blog.
