Hi everyone, on the PBS news hour yesterday which for those of you who don't 
know is USA based news program featured daily at16-30 hrs on SBS 1 there was a 
segment on Windfarms in Oregon. The disastrous news was that thousands of small 
bats were being killed by the wind turbines.Death was caused not only by the 
blades hitting the bats but the differential in air pressure caused by the 
turbines caused blood vessels in the bats to rupture.Not very green energy 
after all.
