    You can do that in the Mojave desert now too near that new solar power plant. The birds I hear come out extra crispy!

    It’s easier to observe and photograph wildlife when they’re not moving.

    Yep, that’s the Oil Companies’ position too!

    When I lived in Fort Yukon I would explore around the microwave communication dish that was aimed south.
    Squirrel bones, bird bones, mice bones, large insect carcasses, all fanned out in front of the dish.
    Not very many rabbits, they were big enough to run away, but the small animal bones littered the area in the hundreds.

    Started in the fifties and only affected the small area in front of the dish.
    Turbines and solar mirrors do not slaughter animals en masse, merely those who come close. Banning lead shot saved more animals than these constructs will ever kill.

    And just for the record, oil from the Exxon Valdez is still pooled on beaches and on the ocean bed all these years later. It does not clean up well.

    Must be your position too.After all your computer,keyboard,monitor,phone,tv, and modem are all mostly plastic made from oil.Then there is the paint your house and car are painted with.Along with a good part of the car also made of plastic.then there is gasoline and diesel fuel.Without which you would starve in short order.

    Energy demand to meet an often unreasonable demand based on actual “need”, will continue to cause increasing harm until we start to economize and conserve. As to oil spills, in one event, they kill thousands of times as much wildlife, from fish eggs, insects, to birds and mammals, as any other “green” source can begin to compare, damage-wise.


    Another proof that our poorly planned and maintained transportation system of “energy”, coal, oil, or electricity, is a HUGE hazard, often as great, or greater, than “production”.

    Birds, schmirds. The important thing is that rich people are getting richer.

    Oil companies should get a significant tax break so they can invest in some cleanup technology. After all, they are barely breaking even now and can’t afford to without some sort of subsidy.

    I mean, they really, really, do give a whit about whether beaches are polluted or not, right?

    Don’t we all use oil products?

    The Obama administration just today got hit with a lawsuit for refusing to release EPA information on raptor bird kills by wind farms. Seems the adminstration is suspected of not fining these operations IAW law for the deaths and giving them a pass because they are in vogue “Green” projects.

    BTW, it’s interesting to note your comments try to deflect comments from the oil spill by hitting on wind turbines. Gee, y’think maybe it’s because alternative energy sources are something advanced by the Obama administration?
    .
    Looks like a typical neo-con stance of “if Obama’s for it, I’m against it”, no matter what it is.
