A survey of 29 wind farms showed 197 bats are killed each month in the UK. Bat ecology researcher Lia Gilmour, and the strategy director of a climate charity 10:10, Leo Murray, discussed what can be done to prevent bat deaths in wind farms.

    The Real News: Possible thousands of insects outsmart bats using wind farms
    as their most valuable weapons of death. No one knows if this is hurting
    the bat population at all, so many dead bats to count & collect we don’t
    have time for any video or imaged proof.
