People are concerned about the impact of wind turbines on birds and bats, since significant numbers have been killed at certain locations.
Of course, pollution from coal mining and emissions harms birds, too.
And global warming could impact birds and bats on a far greater scale.
We found a good discussion of the issues at Mother Earth news.
To our way of thinking, the urgency of developing alternative energy sources is as important as protecting birds. The ideal is to do both!
