How Can Helping the Planet Hurt the Birds?

Posted by Neno Duplan

When it comes to the environment, everybody has an opinion, and at times, those opinions can be polar opposite.  LA Times shares a story about a new $2.2 billion solar power plant in the Ivanpah desert of California.  Good for the environment? At first glance, yes.

However, while the new sun-energy collection facility harvests the sun’s power through large, garage door-sized glass-mirrored panels… their reflection is posing a different problem.  Birds that fly over the panels are dying. Interesting story of how being green can create an unexpected consequence.
