“The fact is that we can’t account for the lack of warming at the moment and it is a travesty that we can’t.”
- Kevin Trenberth – NCAR
I saw a Golden Eagle near NCAR today – the first one I have ever seen in the wild. There are less than 20,000 remaining in the US.
Climate experts believe that we need to build wind farms to stop all this excess heat, and that decimation of the raptor population is necessary collateral damage.
UNACCEPTABLE NUMBERS OF BIRDS OF PREY ARE KILLED AT WIND TURBINES
Wind turbines at Altamont Pass kill an estimated 880 to 1,300 birds of prey each year, including up to 116 golden eagles, 300 red-tailed hawks, 380 burrowing owls, and additional hundreds of other raptors including kestrels, falcons, vultures, and other owl species.
These astronomical levels of raptor mortality continue unabated, due in part to the failure of federal and state wildlife protection agencies to take any regulatory action.
But we need to stop all this global warming. Think of the animals.
