I’ve blogged before about the dangers to wildlife from wind turbines. Well, this just in: yesterday, the Department of the Interior released draft guidelines to protect wildlife from wind turbines while calling on all involved in the industry to rigorously monitor, assess, and incorporate best practices into their designs.
It would seem that even as Congress (particularly the House, but there are always others) does its level best to relegate environmental protection to the ash heap, some folks in government are still out there doing what they can.
