I can definitely say that birds getting trapped would not be something most purchasers would ask about. Now the plight of the birds can show how much a costly effect to maintain these plants is going to be.

ceterum censeo: there ain't no such thing as (mass-produced) "clean energy", only some forms that are even dirtier than others

from 1990 to 2008, the average energy use per person increased 10% while world population increased 27%

Humans are the crown-of-thorns of creation, and they're multiplying like Cancer-cells...
