I don't know the proper name of the rhetorical device employed in that article, but here's how the illogic goes.

1. Birds are killed in the production of renewable energy.

And

2. Birds are also killed during the production of nonrenewable energy.

Therefore

3. Birds being killed during the production of nonrenewable energy is not such a big deal.

ALSO

1. We've established that bird deaths are not a problem.

And

2. Bird deaths are the only outcome of nonrenewable energy currently under discussion.

Therefore,

3. Nonrenewable energy is therefore not a problem.
