...sounds to me like the legal branch of the Earth Liberation Front has found another way that we as human beings should feel guilty about our lack of concern for the planet...

While there are undoubtedly bird deaths associated with tower collisions, perhaps "insighted" by beacons to some extent it seems to me the vast increase in the numbers of birds due to lack of predatory forces on them and an overabundance of refuse for them to pluck at most likely would more than offset the mean cruel evil killing of birds those awful humans are causing.

I tell you these friggin' tree huggers are gonna kill us all... today you are supposed to feel guilty because you drive and SUV, tomorrow you are supposed to feel guilty because you have a tower... Today they torched an SUV dealer will these same miscreants be cutting my guy wires tomorrow?


I hope the FCC gets some real - NOT JUNK - science on this prior to making up its mind...

These people need to get a friggin life - they could be helping build houses with Habitat for Humanity or working in Soup Kitchens but no - they are counting dead bird carcasses...

Heah - the sixties are over, were over 30 + years ago...

Just because you now know how to keep occupied the ridiculous overabundance of lawyers in this country does not mean that they, simply by being Doctors of Law, are doing anything other than running up the consumers cost on everything with their frivolous litigation.

Close vent


...and to top it off the BBC is airing this - THAT should tell you it is trash science - they probably picked up the story from the New York Times!
