Green Wind Energy Can Be Deadly for Bats
It must be hard to be an environmentalist some days. You love green energy sources like wind power, but you also have strong feelings for bats, especially rare, endangered ones like the Indiana bat (pictured above). And if just one of those cuddly creatures is found dead near a wind turbine, there's only one solution: stop the windmills from operating at night until the middle of November when the bats will hibernate until spring.
That's exactly what just happened this week in Pennsylvania, read about it here and here.
