It has been reported that a University of Calgary study on wind turbines and bat deaths was caused by low pressure which injures their lung rather than by impact with the blades. We all know the effect of hydropower and the plight of the salmon. And there is that awkward relationship with biodiesel and corn prices. It seems that whenever something is introduced there is the possibility of unintended consequences.
It is like running over another bump in the road of change.
What was not reported in the press that there is a working partnership between Bats Conservation International, American Wind Energy Association, National Renewable Energy Lab, and U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service towards finding a deterrent for bats deaths caused by wind turbines.
