Wind energy’s ‘dirty little secret’: bird deaths


Delaware State News  

 

    One of the dirty little secrets of wind energy is that wind turbines kill eagles and other birds. This was proven in a recent court decision, as reported by The Associated Press, where an energy company pleaded guilty to killing as many as 150 eagles with their equipment.

    We live on the Atlantic Flyway, with multiple wildlife preserves, including a large bald eagle-nesting area at Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge near Cambridge, Maryland. If these bird-shredding machines were positioned on land, as they are in the western United States, people would be appalled at the plethora of dead birds rotting in the open air or being dragged off by predators. It seems to me the “green-energy” advocates and Orsted want to hide this slaughter far offshore in federal waters, where the only witness to the carnage will likely be the occasional fishing boat.

    Please protect our beautiful avian population, which includes protected and endangered species. Oppose all attempts to put wind turbines off the coast of Delaware and Maryland. Put a stop to this blood-red energy masquerading as “green” energy.
