History of wind power U.S. Energy Information

May 26, 2020 The oil shortages of the 1970s changed the energy environment for the United States and the world. The oil shortages created an interest in developing ways to use alternative energy sources, such as wind energy, to generate electricity. The U.S. federal government supported research and development of large wind turbines.

How Many Birds Are Killed by Wind Turbines? ABC

Jan 26, 2021 Others like Whooping Cranes are losing habitat as a result of wind energy development. As noted above, our projections leave little doubt that the annual toll in birds lost to U.S. wind turbines is at least more than half a million, and a similarly conservative estimate would put that number at nearly 700,000 birds. There is a case to be made
