The windmills at Tehachapi. CA have been there for years (Decades?) and they seem to mostly be working... There are complaints about birds being killed... CNC

In fact, wind turbines are killing our raptors to the point of extinction - and breeding cannot keep up. Anywhere where you have wind turbines kiss your raptors good bye. For bats specifically, you don't need the blade to actually strike the animal. The pressure created by the blade as it turns, causes the bat lungs to explode. See "Wind turbines make bat lungs explode" -- https://www.newscientist.com/article/dn14593-wind-turbines-m...
