Kill-joy bird-brained eco-wackos stop concert

AUSSIE rockers AC/DC could have to cancel a sold-out concert because their big sound poses a danger to rare birds.

Animal rights campaigners are threatening legal action if the veteran band goes ahead with a gig planned for Wels airport in Austria in May.

    I hate to see this. AC/DC is loud, but they would perform for only one night. The birds, if they left to avoid the noise, as if planes aren't loud, would return. Birds fly thousands of miles to get places, the places they nest, and I don't think they would die, or leave and never come back.I love life and I love this planet and all its species; let's not let some few extremists taint saving the environment–and I don't mean CO2 is a pollutant.I do care and think humans do have a right to protect wildlife. However, I would say that building condos in an ancient forest or bldg a shopping mall on known nesting/mating lands are far more dangerous than a one-night concert.
