Military seeks to block wind industry near desert bases  

Credit:  By Miriam Raftery, East County Magazine | eastcountymagazine.org 25 May 2012 ~~

The military has dealt a major blow to the wind industry, announcing that it may soon oppose wind projects in the Mojave desert due to interference with military radar tracking aircraft.

The revelation raises questions over whether wind turbines also interfere with “avian radar” that wind companies claim could save birds from the blades.

Environmentalists now fret that eliminating military bases may result in project siting in areas where threats to wildlife and habitat may be even worse.
