Watch this 2009 video link. It is an interview conducted before Shawn Smallwood went way south with his nonscientific studies. The truth is that none of Shawn Smallwood's mortality studies are scientific. Even so his best guess back then was that that 3500---5000 raptors were being slaughtered each year at Altamont. At about 45 seconds into this video, he goes on to say "we're not allowed to do what we need to do (conduct scientific research), to get highly precise estimates, I know we are missing a lot "....... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gzrsopSpIV4 ...; Researchers associated with wind energy are not allowed to conduct scientific or accurate research. This 2009 statement was made 24 years after the America's first and last truly scientific turbine mortality study was conducted by McCrary in 1985. Of course, one of Green Energy's biggest research frauds, is their nondisclosure of the wind turbine slaughter to tens of thousands of eagles taking place.
