An amazing short account of the damage done by wind turbines to raptors. Anyone got facts and figures for any of the wind farms here?

See the story here:

Very interesting article Peter, thanks for posting it. It is the first time I have heard this happening, very sad indeed.
Without getting political what would be a better alternative or environment and wildlife?

Take a look at this video. It demonstrates the ease by which these turbines can decimate our raptors!

I´ve been trying for a while to find out more about this technology:
