Wind power not green yet

Using wind to generate electricity sounds like a good idea until you have to deal with realities such as rules prohibiting putting the wind turbines on the tops of mountains and bird fatalities. In California, 1,400 wind turbine permits were renewed but an environmental group plans to appeal the decision, according the Contra Costa Times.

Highlight: “Mike Boyd of Californians for Renewable Energy said he fears the sea of turbines along Interstate 580 will give wind power “a black eye nationwide” unless bird fatalities can be reduced.”
