Angry Birds in Northern California

Following up on a previous post regarding Google's plans to invest millions of dollars in a massive field of wind turbines in the western Mojave Desert, the Los Angeles Times ran a great article today on the dangers of poorly sited wind energy facilities on birds. Google's wind energy projects is one of several proposed for the Mojave Desert, and are expected to have similar impacts as the Altamont Pass project featured in the LA Times article.   A video accompanied the article and is also embedded below.

  1. I can't help but wonder if had this article showed photos and video of our national mascot, the bald eagle, being massacred in Altamont, if there would be cries of outrage.

    Sadly, I am starting to believe that nothing will wake up the slumbering american public opinion.
