New to the Birds and Solar Issue? We've Got It Covered Here
We've been reporting on the issue of burned birds at solar plants since mid-2012. It may have taken other news outlets a few additional months to notice the issue, but we're gratified that the topic is starting to see wider coverage.
As a guide to journalists and other readers who are struggling to come up to speed on the issue, we've compiled our reporting on burn injuries to birds at solar power plants -- over 50 stories in all -- into one handy, interactive post using the popular Storify curation tool. We hope you find it helpful in understanding the issue's broader context. And if you're a journalist, feel free to quote any of our stories with a citation and a link. We like when people do that.
