    Yes. If you're concerned about bird populations, the greatest impact you can have is ensuring that cats are spayed/neutered, and support shelters that educate people who adopt cats to keep them indoors (as an added benefit, an indoor cat has about 3x the average lifespan of an outdoor cat). It's estimated that feral and outdoor cats kill about 3-4 billion (yes, that's with a "b") birds every year.

    Actually, I think he meant that you should donate to a cat shelter.

    @mstefanik:
    Thanks for the suggestion. I will look up a shelter program for wild birds near the solar power plant, and contribute a little bit of donation and my sympathy.

    Those solar panel may sounds a better solution than the murdering reflective approach. But, reflective design seems to be cheaper and less maintains though. The reflective surface is very basic, so, it doesn't wears out and probably much easier to recycle than solar panels.

    Anyway, someone just improved the glass solar panel. Now it is just like a normal glass. Personally I want that on my car and on those skyscrapers. So, we can do distributed power generation than a power plant.

    @DeathByVisualStudio:

    It is my fault. There are other power plant posts, and I didn't engage in those. Thanks for helping me out.

    You misunderstood me.  Airports have measures to warn away birds and the footprint of an airport can be much larger than ivanpah.  The deathtoll from a plane hitting a bird mid-flight is much higher than that of a bird getting cooked mid-flight, so airports have ways of dealing with this.

    One of those ways, is with birds-of-prey, which seems like it might have it's own problems.


    As the article explained. The power plant is not an airport. To be clear, the article explained it attracts the food source of the bird, which attracts birds. So, the power plant is not an airport.

    Anyone who read "Ringworld" might remember the sunflowers that did this for nutrition.

    I know ivanpah is large, but it's probably not larger than an airport, and airports have been dealing with bird problems for a while. 

     



    It has nothing to do with size of the power plant. I wouldn't expect such cruelty until I read the article.

    @DeathByVisualStudio:
    Hmmmm..... I am not sure what to say. So, it is ok to mass murder birds and I should get over it?

  • I dont find the App store that bad what about the rest of the Niners Community

    @spivonious:

    There is nothing wrong to charge 3 dollar for teaching people how to install an app. It is like you go to a book store and by Windows for dummies, it is the same thing.

    And that case is a trademark infringement infringement.

    As for trademark infringement, lets remove all YouTube apps because none of them are real.

    The list goes on. You block certain apps while allowing the other. That is not a fair rule and it will raise law suits. MS dodging law suits by simply putting a blind eye to it.
