Wind Deaths Deplorable

birds-and-turbines-1

Regarding the article Raptor kills exceeded by wind project (Dec. 16), so there are specific numbers of deaths of birds, bats and raptors that constitute “acceptable” losses? Collateral damage? Just a cost of doing business in pursuit of green energy? Cripes!

Ministry of the Environment and Climate Change? What a sick, oxymoronic joke that is. Are these flying creatures not part of the environment, and therefore worthy of protection? Almost everything this careless government does now shocks and saddens me, but none of it surprises me because I have come to expect the worst of people presently in positions of authority.
