One thing to note is that opposition is purely based on speculation and fear mongering.Not one single fact, yet they have organized petitions and protests. Wold that they could be so pro-active on AGW which is a MUCH bigger threat to birds. Typical fossil fuel denialist propaganda, just using birds as a smoke screen.

As to wind farms not replacing any power plants, that is bogus crap.

"For the 12 months until September 2013, the electricity produced from wind power in the United States amounted to 162.181 terawatt-hours, or 4.02% of all generated electrical energy."

"A 2012 report by a clean energy consulting group concluded that new wind farms can produce electricity in the 5-8 cents per kWh range, making wind power cost-competitive with fossil fuels in many areas."

Wind power added more capacity in 2012 than any other form of energy. Deal with it. Don't deny it.
