    From a solar array in Nevada costing taxpayers $750M.

    Birds or green energy, your choice:




    Nature World News reports:

    "About two hours into the test, engineers and biologists on site started noticing "streamers" - trails of smoke and steam caused by birds flying directly into the field of solar radiation. What moisture was on them instantly vaporized, and some instantly burst into flames - at least, until they began to frantically flap away. An estimated 130 birds were injured or killed during the test."

    "According to The Associated Press (AP), many biologists call the number of deaths "significant" and suspect that the streamers are caused by a chain of attraction - that is, insects are drawn towards the bright plant's light, which in turn attracts birds looking to feast on crispy bugs."

    The planet's only hope is a 'Human Extinction League'.


    Then the world will be OK . Insect evolution will proceed.

    Absolutely. Get rid of all CO2 exhalers.

    Maybe they can use some sound frequency that wouldn't drive everyone batty but deter the birds. Someone should be able to improve upon this situation.
