“Birds Lost in Action”

figure73

A comparison of the birds killed annually by Danish windmills, Danish automobiles, and British cats. Taken from Sustainable Energy–without the hot air by David J.C. MacKay, who makes this book and all the graphics he prepared for it available free online.  (He notes that the number taken by cats is about the same as birds that die attempting to fly through plate glass.)

    I love it. I’d been meaning to read MacKay’s book and this pushed me over the edge. It’s on it’s way from Amazon :)
