I've had the same problem since dumping Windows on my main personal platforms. The radar animations were interesting but not essential. I cannot name another site where Flash is essential.
Altamont's turbines have since 2008 been tethered four months of every year in an effort to protect migrating birds after environmentalists filed suit. According to the Golden Gate Audubon Society, 75 to 110 Golden Eagles, 380 Burrowing Owls, 300 Red-tailed Hawks, and 333 American Kestrels (falcons) are killed by Altamont turbines annually.
I was aware of wind turbine bird strikes. I didn't know the numbers.
