  •  I wouldn't say straw man without a lot of (4+ / 0-)

    interviews. A lot of bird conservation types are legitimately very concerned and don't oppose windpower per se. In CA, for example, the best wind sites are also all key migration routes and choke points, so their complaint has been why not site them somewhere slightly less optimum and thereby cease maximizing bird kill, why not replace latticework towers with smooth columns so they aren't inviting nesting sites, etc.

    In some areas, it may be merely those in opposition to wind power, but I'm pretty sure that is not nearly universal. I know plenty of green heads who want wind power and who also don't want them killing large numbers of birds.

    That, in its essence, is fascism--ownership of government by an individual, by a group, or by any other controlling private power. -- Franklin D. Roosevelt --
