The Associated Push is warning that wind mill farms are helping ruin a population of eagles, inadvertently proving President Donald Trump’s claims that windmills are harmful to avian wildlife.
In a recent report, the AP admits the Fantastic Eagle population is at the edge of decline which “ wind turbines could force them over the brink. ”
“ The rush to construct wind farms to fight climate change is colliding with preservation of one of the U. S. West’s most spectacular predators — the golden eagle — as the species teeters at the edge of decline, ” writes the AP.
“ Ground zero in the conflict is Wyoming, a stronghold for golden eagles that soar upon 7-foot (2-meter) wings and also a favored location for breeze farms. As wind turbines proliferate, scientists say deaths through collisions could drive down golden eagle numbers considered stable at best. ”
In the video report on the topic, Teton Raptor Center research associate Chuck Preston clarifies the eagles don’t understand the spinning windmill cutting blades, “ and so as these types of flying through and the turbine is spinning it hits the eagle. ”
“ And a collision with wind turbines for a golden eagle is usually fatal, ” Preston says.
The topic of wind farms eliminating birds has been frequently mentioned by President Donald Trump who has repeatedly gone upon tirades against so-called eco-friendly energy, but up until now the issue was mocked and ridiculed by the corporate press.
Here is Trump specifically saying the particular windmills are “ killing eagles. ”

Watch as MSNBC’s Chris Hayes back in 2018 claimed Trump was lying when he claimed windmills kill wild birds, falsely calling the former president’s comments “ not true. ”
Evidently, the AP has vindicated Trump’s comments; they will not however give him credit.
The AP’s article goes on to say birds helps keep on dying because breeze farms are a necessary bad to combat climate alter.
