The Killer Wind Farm: Coming Soon To A Mountain Top Near You

In the past twenty years or so, wind farms have popped up all over the country as an alternative means of environmentally safe electricity production. I agree, it is the responsibility of all of us to do our part to conserve natural resources and also be conscious of the long term ramifications the pollutants we create have on tomorrow. But, tree huggers across the country (that, by the way, pushed so hard for earth friendly electricity) have now found another axe to grind. Many of these same "conservationists" are claiming that the propellers of the wind turbines are posing a threat to wildlife because unsuspecting birds may fly into the path of the blade and be killed. Honestly, this theory lacks so much common sense ... it's laughable. An animal survives millions of years of existence on this planet, enduring all Mother Nature can dish out, eludes natural predators on a daily basis, and after all that gets wiped out by windmill blade ... laughable.
