Alan, a point that can't be made often enough.

For me, most egregious are their impacts on wildlife. Imagine if nuclear plants were responsible for the deaths of 550,000 eagles, hawks, falcons, and other soaring birds killed by U.S. wind turbines each year; for the razing of 500-year-old Joshua trees, and impacts on native tortoises and other fauna by construction of solar farms. The wailing from Sierra Club would be never-ending.
