Importantly, the wind industry is not required to report these deaths and is rarely prosecuted for them. Bryce highlighted a case where a wind farm was built in Wyoming in a known habitat for golden eagles, despite warnings from the Fish and Wildlife Service. The company responsible was prosecuted, but the fine was minimal compared to the revenue from tax credits for building the wind farm. He criticizes this as a flawed policy where companies kill birds now in the belief that it might help mitigate future climate change impacts, which Bryce regards as detrimental to genuine environmental care 1.
