  1. Serious? How does this happen?

    • Very true and really sad, it happens all the time…With 300,000 mirrors, each the size of a garage door, collecting and reflecting solar rays and then focusing and concentrating that energy upward onto three gigantic boiler towers, with the water boiling and producing lots of really hot steam which will generate “clean” energy. But it also causes lots of problems, the bright light attracts insects and they would attract birds…that fly to their death. Not only birds are affected by the solar plants, but other wildlife little animals too. Wind farms are well known for also being the cause of death of numerous birds.

  2. Wind mills kill the birds too, every day. They should think about some technologies to scare the birds away . Something not harmful but effective. And this is a good idea to put the permissions to build such plants on hold until the thorough research is done.

    • Yes, my friend, it’s true. I believe the “clean energy” also doesn’t come so easy and it still need to be perfected, hopefully they’ll soon find a solution to provide clean energy without harming the environment.
