Stopped reading your post after the part where you said wind turbines stop wind and therefore make birds fall to their death. Try to get scientific info from somewhere other than Breitbart or Infowars please.


Wind turbines do stop normal flow of the wind. Many birds glide on wind currents and if that wind current goes into a wind farm then there is a good chance they can be hit with or almost get hit with one of the blades. When wind hits the turbine the flow of wind gets redirected around the turbines path, which also. causes the cooling of crops that help them grow.

The fact that your angry at Breitbart and Infowars about common science shows how little you know about the subject.

Out of curiosity, how is a bird impacting a turbine blade the same as falling to it's death? Secondly, wind farms do studies and make sure that there are no dead zones created from the turbines being spaced too close together, this would lessen the amount of energy harvested after all.

PS 2-3 times a year I drive past a very large wind farm on the Columbia River, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Biglow_Canyon_Wind_Farm and have actually been on-site at a turbine for an unrelated matter. Dead zones are created from spacing the turbines too close together and wildlife impacts can be minimalized to levels far below the impact of coal or even natural gas power plants on a per MW comparison. Also, I'm not "angry" at Breitbart or Infowars, but do find it rather sad that so many people read the trash they publish and just assume it is fact, similar to some of the mainstream media stuff.

That's good news and who wants to pay 45 dollars a month for electricity? screw fossil fuels for making people pay as much or more. I know I don't want to pay 45 bucks monthly for electricity.
