Wind-Turbines-and-Birds-Could-Mix-USA1

Wind energy is killing rare birds and many bats.

Some of the most damning images of oil industry destruction are of birds soaked in spilled oil. These images help form an image of oil as a dirty, earth-unfriendly energy source.

And in some ways, it is.

But every energy source is in some ways earth-unfriendly.

Why so little reporting on bird deaths cause by wind energy? Does anyone doubt that it’s not because wind energy is considered “environmentally friendly” by most journalists, who then won’t naturally gravitate to any story that runs counter to that narrative?
