No green pass for wind farms  

Credit:  By The Denver Post Editorial Board | 01/06/2015 | www.denverpost.com ~~

Even wind-energy projects, as green as they might be in their overall environmental impact, have a duty to monitor and control their toll on birds. That’s the valuable takeaway from a guilty plea entered Tuesday by a company with wind projects in Wyoming that killed a disturbing number of golden eagles and other birds.

Some such deaths are inevitable. But as the American Bird Conservancy notes, “bird-smart wind power” can mitigate the toll – and such practices become ever more essential as wind energy grows.

PacifiCorp Energy built its projects with cavalier disregard for bird welfare – a mistake it presumably won’t repeat.
