The nation's largest proposed wind farm brings a battle over birds

Yesterday Texas officials announced plans for the nation's largest offshore wind farm, with as many as 170 windmills in the Gulf of Mexico. {mosimage}
 
Hold your confetti canons there, ecogeeks.  While you may be swooning over the fact that these windmills may have the levitra in india capacity to provide energy for close to 125,000 homes, environmentalists aren't happy.
 
Environmentalists are claiming that the new wind farm will kill countless rare birds that fly through Texas migrating down to Central America and www.toscanalifesciences.info Mexico. In fact, Walter Kittelberger, chairman of discount cialis india the Lower Laguna Madre Foundation, went so far as to say, "You probably couldn't pick a worse location." 
 
The only response from the project, funded by Houston-based Superior Renewable Energy, is from Chief Executive John Callaway, who responded, "Of course there's going to cialis use be some mortality, but we don't think it will be significant."
 
The fight for the birds, unfortunately, will probably be lost in a larger battle over aesthetics. Postcard-happy residents in Cape Cod, Massachusetts are fighting their new wind farm bitterly because of its unsightliness, and Superior seems more driven to assert that the new Gulf wind farm will be placed on a remote, unpopulated stretch of the shore.
