Mr. Wiegand isn't a wildlife biologist. He studied undergraduate level biology 40 years ago and is an antiques dealer in Northern California (no where near whooping cranes of any type). He has never worked with whooping cranes. The devoted professionals, academics and organizations that do work with whooping cranes all completely disagree with Mr. Wiegand. There is no evidence that any whooping crane has even been harmed by a wind farm. Not one. Mr. Wiegand is making it all up. http://www.quora.com/Wind-Power/Are-wind-farms-killing-endangered-whooping-cranes
The latest justification for extending the industrial wind electricity production tax credit (PTC) is that we need an “all of the above” energy policy. The slogan falls flat, even when it’s expanded to “all of the above and below” – which is rarely the case with radical environmentalists and “progressive” politicians, who steadfastly oppose “any of the below” (ie, hydrocarbons).

America needs an “all of the sensible” energy policy. If an energy option makes sense - technically, economically and environmentally - it should be implemented. If it flunks, it should be scrapped.
