Wind farms vs wildlife

Clive Hambler –

Clive Hambler, a lecturer in biological and human sciences at Oxford university, writes that wind turbines can do a lot of environmental damage. These wind farms can have significant effect on populations of rare birds and bats to the point that it drives some to the point of extinction. Interestingly, environmentalists don’t want to know the effect these wind farm can have on species. In this case, the evidence suggests that renewables pose a greater threat to wildlife than climate change.
