Comment Re:Clearing the way for drone delivery (Score 2) 85

They just want to kill a bunch of birds to reduce the chances of bird-strike drone-delivery failures.

There are a LOT of turbines where I come from - Orkney 59N. Not only is it windy here but we have a lot of birds too.

There are not mountains of dead birds under them. There are not people complaining about them either. The big ones belong to the electricity company and the smaller (4-8m blades) to individual farms. They can't be bad for farm animals either.

Orkney may be small (pop about 20,000) but it is self sufficient in electricity. If Tesla opened a shop there, we could cut down on another fossil fuel too.
