  •  Why would the oil industry (0+ / 0-)

    gave a whit about wind?  All the wind farms in the world do not curtail use of a single barrel of oil.

    While bird losses from wind farms are trivial compared to other bird killing features, you could add in losses from power lines, which are also a feature of wind farms, and get to more significant bird loss numbers.

    I favor wind but if there are alternative turbine designs that avoid or reduce bird kills, and including underground power lines and related facilities, I'm for it.

    •  I suspect they see it as competition. I don't (0+ / 0-)

      understand why they don't want wind power either. I think they want to be sure that people continue to need their fuel? I don't know. Somebody is against wind though.
