Altamont Wind Turbines Continue To Kill Golden Eagles

Over 2000 raptors are killed every year at Altamont Pass.  The total includes an average of 67 Golden Eagles per year.  This creates conflicts between the need to protect the raptors and the desire to develop renewable energy.  According to fish and game authorities 440,000 birds are killed by wind farms each year.  To date no wind energy producer has been prosecuted by wildlife authorities for creating hazards to birds.  Taller turbines are being built that decrease but do not stop bird fatalities.    To learn more go to the LA Times:  Clean energy: Clean energy clashes with safety of protected bird species – latimes.com.

  1. Mess with Mother Nature. Natural Predators killed by their worst predator man. This Turbines Kills birds and weakens our Food Chain and allows thee Rat Population to grow, just like the destruction of the Cobra and snakes in India, keep the Rodents in Check! With Rodents come Disease and Pestilence!
    Man is at the top of the food chain. Destroy the structure that Our Creator made, it will domino.
