Bats deaths at wind farms attributed to lung hemorrhage … aka – the bends! As we move full speed ahead, is the remedy in place?

From Sciencentral.com – “Wind Turbines Cause Dark Nights for Bats

The big knock on wind turbines has been that they’re dangerous to birds. But researchers have found that they actually kill more bats, and the reason why has been a mystery–until now. As this ScienCentral News video explains, a study published today finds the bats are actually drowning in mid-air.”  Full text of finding at the link.

University of Calgary scientists surfaced the issue a year ago.  I couldn’t find evidence that the wind power industry has corrected the problem, but then maybe I missed the publication.

Can anyone help me out?
