BBC APPEAR TO CARE MORE ABOUT 3 POISONED BIRDS THAN HUNDREDS CHOPPED BY WIND TURBINES

This piece on Bishop Hill looks at a report on the BBC website about bird of prey deaths in Scotland due to poisoning, which have increased from 3 to 6.  The piece then looks at the number of birds killed by wind turbines in the USA and attempts to estimate a figure for those killed in Scotland. Although it is only an estimate the figure is likely to be in the hundreds, and yet the BBC seem to ignore this. The inference being that the turbine deaths are in a "good cause" and "unavoidable".
