Discussion > Proof a Wind Farm killed significant birds in number

..and that the business covered that up
Proof it seems in this News Story : Wind Power Co. to Pay $2.5 Million for Killing Golden Eagles, Other Protected Birds 9/1/15 Portland
Hat Tip : nzrobin on Paul Homewood's blog

To me this is proof level
* bodies : yep minimum 374
38 golden eagles + 336 other protected birds found stashed on the property
* proper court decision : yep
* damages awarded : $2.5 million in fines, restitution and community service.
* accident or negligence ? “PacifiCorp Energy built two of its Wyoming wind projects in a manner it knew would likely result in the deaths of eagles and other protected birds,” said DOJ

e.g.2 They link to Eagle-Killing Wind Turbine Company Fined $1 Million

You guys know any more cases ?

- Compare to 20 years of US FRACKING
* Where are the bodies ? yes where are they ?
* Where are the LOST court cases ?
* Court Damages awarded - zero
* Anything ? - yes some evidence corps have paid off the odd family & with nondisclosure agreements .. not much corroborating evidence or indication of magnitude.
And really plausible the corp had no guilt, but just afraid of high legal bills
* accident or negligence ? Are imaginable ..but any industry should be policied properly according to magnitude & cost risks.
