Like a circle in a spiral

Problem: Windfarms slaughter birds.

Solution: Switch to a wind turbine design that is quieter and less destructive (albeit less efficient).

But better hurry: Government subsidies are drying up.

No, wind farms in flyways slaughter birds. Altamont Springs is a Fukashima level blunder that way, but a reasonably sited wind farm kills far fewer birds than an equivalent sized area of homes with the usual number of cats does.

Just in time. It was never about an economically viable alternative.

As with most subsidized jobs, follow the $.
