Wind Turbines Make Bat Lungs Explode

NOTHING GRAPHIC!!

Wind Turbines Make Bat Lungs Explode

“Beware: exploding lungs” is not a sign one would expect to see at a wind farm. But a new study suggests this is the main reason bats die in large numbers around wind turbines.

The risk that wind turbines pose to birds is well known and has dogged debates over wind energy. In fact, several studies have suggested the risk to bats is greater. In May 2007, the US National Research Council published the results of a survey of US wind farms showing that two bat species accounted for 60% of winged animals killed. Migrating birds, meanwhile, appear to steer clear of the turbines.

Well this is terrible news. Those big white wind turbines reflect a lot of moon light, I think that attracts the insects, like moths. Then the bats come after the insects and die. A possible solution would be to paint the wind turbines dark brown or dark grey.
