Millions of birds sliced in half every year by wind turbines

Wind turbines have been built in windy valleys, which are also attractive to birds for flight paths.  The result is carnage.  If a risk assessment for birdlife was made by developers, none of these would be built.

    We ought to throw all the politicians into them, see how they like it.
    The birds never voted for them.

    I wonder if it is the scale of them that is the problem. People who live on canal boats near me, often have very small wind turbines, enough to supply their own small needs. I don’t think they have any bird problems. Problems always arise when things get taken over by big organisations who take out bank loans for ambitious projects, or get government funding, or lottery money.
