Bats. They need to be considered. This is another example of animal cruelty! They need to find a safer way to operate wind turbines.

We have to get safer turbines! Oil as a power source is very dangerous to the environment and to wildlife, so wind turbines are better, but they still have their flaws in taking up land space and being dangerous for bats (and probably birds, too). Developing safer turbines, as well as advocating solar use, is the key.

Solar power--and we could devise ways to make wind power safer.

I think wildlife should be protected.
