Does Not Compute

Wind farms 'not major bird mincers'
Many bird species are unaffected by wind farms, concludes a study carried out by UK bird charities.

"There's certainly no indication in the species we covered in this study that collision mortality is causing a big problem, but we need to bear in mind that it didn't cover the bigger raptors where we know collisions tend to happen," said Jeremy Wilson, head of science at RSPB Scotland.
Why would you leave the birds where you know collisions tend to happen out of the study and then say you don't see any problem with wind farms? That's like studying drunk driving, leaving out drivers who are actually drunk and saying you don't see a problem with drunk driving.
