Christopher Booker makes some excellent points about the toll wind turbines take on eagles and other birds in the Daily Telegraph.  While wind turbines are known to knock birds (particularly soaring birds) from the sky, Mr. Booker should also take note of the Royal Society for the Prevention of Birds study which concluded that the turbines have an even greater impact on bird habitats causing some species to decline by half.

If only there was some meaningful electricity to be had from these machines to compensate for the harm they cause.
