Every spring and autumn, hundreds of thousands of migrating birds meet disaster in the blades of wind turbines. Every day, birds of all types, even protected species such as bald eagles, become victims of the swirling blades. Environmentalists tout wind turbines as an environmentally friendly way to generate electricity. Obviously, these lethal machines aren’t environmentally friendly to the large numbers of dead birds on the ground around them.
