    How much of a risk are wind turbines to birds compared to other manmade bird-killing devices?

    It appears to be not much. I know the three story office building I am in regularly has birds fly into the windows and die.

    “U.S. science and technology is losing ground to its global competitors because of a nationwide shortage of scientists and engineers, due primarily to the many failures of K-12 education.”

    In fact, too far too many scientists and engineers are tilting at [star wars, rail guns, lasers, stealthy stuuf including 19000 ton destroyers, Marine amphib that can do 50 mph on land, etc] windmills, and the F-35. About $100B a year in war research and development a lot of it to make duds like V-22 work.

      well the problem is that business is short sighted and seemingly only the government actually does any that is long term (with a few exceptions of course). I always wondered why there was this big push for more STEM education, when we can barely provide employment for those that graduate with those degrees. and government (out side defense ) is really only interested in the basic science and research. the idea was that the government would do that and business could take it from there and use it to do more things with. problem is government has cut that funding, and business never took up that, and so advances slow down. and others (countries) have started doing it and are gathering the results and advancing their economies. while we dont. mostly it seems that our elected ‘leaders’ have become to short sighted them selves (after all its easier to campaign on tax cuts than it is to campaign on investing in America. especially now when many dont seem to really support the country , unless its there way, but hay that politics for you!)
