    I was really hopeful about RFK, but lost all confidence several years ago. I don't remember the precipitating incident --- I just remember I found myself having a huge "Well, what*EV*er" moment.

    As for wind vs. cats --- and at the risk of alienating lots of people who love them --- I do everything possible to keep them off my land. Nothing will wipe out songbirds quicker than cats. And i love my birds more than any cat, so they're not allowed.

    In terms of sheer numbers, I would imagine the damage to bird pops from cats far outstrips the damage from wind turbines. I think that's an impt point, and one I hadn't thought of before.
