An interesting article from July's Missouri Conservationist.  Wind farms being investigated as a possible culprit in the declining bat population.

Bats and Wind Energy
As entities consider more wind energy projects in Missouri, the state’s bats face the threats of habitat loss and devastating diseases like whitenose syndrome. What level of wind-generated power development can occur without further harming already-stressed bat populations?

Missouri State Bat Ecologist Kathryn Womack- Bulliner has been working with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to estimate the occupancy of bats in areas of likely wind energy development in the Show-Me State.

Their goal is to understand bat species occupancy prior to wind energy development to better advise developers how they can “reduce the impact to Missouri’s fish, forest, and wildlife species that we all love,” she said. “These include federally listed species, Missouri species of conservation concern, and also to provide siting considerations in relation to MDC conservation areas.”

They do a great job thinning the mosquitoes out, though.
They make perfectly good non rabid Martins for that. Those also come with gourd accessories.
I hate wind "farms" (cannot think of a more unfitting name).

Bad for wildlife. Do not lower utility bills AT ALL.

They are hiding the best technologies from us and pushing these 16th century antiquated
power sources as new and "green". It's all bullshit, and a scam. Yet, they keep going up
because local officials are corrupt.
