Hi, what are you looking for?

CleanTechnica
OK, it's mostly folks from the American Wind Energy Association (but also Jack Clarke of the Audobon Society, who inspired my enthusiastic title). But, seriously, they are right on. I almost never even mention the topic of wind turbines' effect on wildlife,.. because it is so completely obvious. Wind energy is tremendously needed in addressing both global warming pollution and other pollution. Unless we want to go back to a time when we didn't have electricity at all, it's sorely needed. Watch these wind energy experts discuss the wind industry's relationship to wildlife in the video below.

As an American Wind Energy Association representative wrote in an email to me: “Expanding the use of wind power improves environmental conditions for wildlife because wind power has none of the harmful emissions, water use, mining, drilling and hazardous waste of other energy sources. Even so, AWEA and the wind energy industry are committed to proactively reducing its already low impacts on the surrounding environment.”
