Wind vs. Oil – the avian body count

Which source of energy kills more birds, the Canadian oil sands or green-approved wind turbines?

There are a couple of curses in the video:

The scorecard:- oil killed 2.5 birds per peta-joule of energy produced, wind killed 1,114 per peta-joule.

If that’s not bad enough for you, the oil sands killed a lot of ducks, the wind project mentioned in the video kills raptors – a far greater loss to local ecology.

Green good intentions meet unintended consequences, again.
