  •   turbines IIRC go carbon neutral in a year (0+ / 0-)

    or less.

    With a life span of 20-30 years, that a lot of carbon saved.

    •  What does that have to do with redesigning the (0+ / 0-)

      turbines so they are less lethal to birds? So we shouldn't even try, just sit back self-satisfied that it's the best design possible.

      •  Comment mentioned C02, you can read right? (0+ / 0-)
        If we don't reduce our CO2 output...
        Right?

        OK?

        •  My comment didn't - no need to be rude (0+ / 0-)

          Mr. Fox.

          Carbon neutral in one year and 100 bird deaths per year per turbine = thousands of birds.

          I am not opposed to wind power I want to discuss a new design less lethal to birds and bats.

          Okay?
