At one time Altamont Pass in California was home to 7,000 wind turbines. Environmentalists couldn’t ignore the number of bird deaths caused by all those spinning blades.
Of particular concern were the golden eagles getting chewed up when flying low looking for varmints.
Altamont Winds, Inc (AWI), with its 828 turbines, killed or injuring 67 golden eagles over a ten year period.
AWI announced that it will be permanently shutting down its turbines tomorrow.
