The green killer: Scores of protected golden eagles dying after colliding with wind turbines

  • California's attempts to switch to green energy have inadvertently put the survival of the state’s golden eagles at risk.

    Scores of the protected birds have been dying each year after colliding with the blades of about 5,000 wind turbines.

    Now the drive for renewable power sources, such as wind and the sun, being promoted by President Obama and state Governor Jerry Brown has raised fears that the number of newborn golden eagles may not be able to keep pace with the number of turbine fatalities.

“We do not believe any group of men adequate enough or wise enough to operate without scrutiny or without criticism. We know that the only way to avoid error is to detect it, that the only way to detect it is to be free to inquire. We know that in secrecy error undetected will flourish and subvert”.J Robert Oppenheimer.
