WE SIMPLY CANNOT TURN A BLIND EYE TO THE HUGE NUMBER OF BIRD AND BAT KILLS GOING ON WITH WIND TURBINES. THE BATS ARE NATURAL POLLINATORS AND THE BIRDS PLAY AN ESSENTIAL ROLE IN OUR BIODIVERSITY AND ECO SYSTEMS. WITH MEGA WIND FARMS ON THE RISE, WE MUST FIND A WAY TO AVOID THE DESTRUCTION OF OUR BIRDS AND BATS. WE CANNOT TURN A BLIND EYE, EVEN IF IT IS IN THE NAME OF “CLEAN ENERGY”.

Billions of birds migrate annually, taking advantage of the same wind currents that are most beneficial for producing wind energy,

pdjmoo DO WIND TURBINES KILL WILDLIFE? | As many as 440,000 birds are killed by existing wind turbines just in the US every yearMeanwhile we need to know more about migration patterns and exactly why bats and birds are attracted to spinning blades. Nor should any wind turbine be given the go ahead without a conservation plan http://ow.ly/t5oa

pdjmoo Save Birds by Promoting Wind Energy – Scitizen http://ow.ly/t5sb In terms of birds killed per electricity produced, nuclear power is slightly worse but comparable to wind energy, but fossil-fueled facilities are about 17 times more dangerous to birds on a per kWh basis. In absolute terms, since wind turbines produced a relatively small amount of national electricity in the United States in 2006, they may have killed about 7,000 but fossil fueled stations killed 14.5 million and nuclear power plants 327,000.

Beautiful Solar Roof tiles

The curved design of the tile allows for greater air circulation under and around the tiles, helping to prevent degradation in performance caused by the region’s desert heat. http://www.solardaily.com/reports/SRS_Energy_Installs_Sole_Power_Tile_System_999.html

UPDATED: The sun rises and sets everyday all over the world. When it stops, so do we. Solar makes so much sense, so long as the end of life cycle is biodegrable. Wind has its problems with bird and bat kills and changing wind current due to climate change

This innovation makes so much sense…every area exposed to the sun is a potential energy capture source and now…we can have beautiful roof tiles as well. Things are accelerating so fast. Every day I see new innovations on the market – mostly overseas though. (see http://solardaily.com). This is a major shift from the flat panels. Here’s a prediction. Next we will have thin solar film on our windows that not only reduce the sun’s heat coming in but also generate electricity. Then solar cars. With all the exposed surface metal – the hoods, the roof, the trunk and even the paneled doors…someone will come through with this soon. Getting off our addiction to oil dependency may not be as difficult or as slow as we think. Wow…a true win, win. What an exciting innovative time we are living in. Go Solar!
