Wind CEO’s Worry: ‘Birds breathing CO2′

April 16, 2009

In response to concerns that wind farms will chop up migratory birds, Ditlev Engel, the CEO of Danish wind-energy company Vestas, told the Washington Post that

… anecdotal evidence about birds being caught in turbine blades and other environmental horror stories do not usually hold up under scrutiny.

Engel then added:

“Do people think it’s better all those birds are breathing CO2? I’m not a scientist, but I doubt it.”

No, Engel is not a scientist — I’m not even sure he’s a person with basic knowledge about breathing.
