In wind-obsessed Spain (an obsession that has led to the literal destruction of their economy) between 6 and 18 million birds and bats are slaughtered each year, according to the Spanish Ornithological Society.
Q: Where’s the outrage form ‘Green’ groups?
A: “Environmentalists” would, in times past, raise the alarm at obstructions being built by the thousands across the land [slaughtering birds and bats], but today the “Socio-Enviro-Emotionalists” salivate at the site of these rising monsters, believing they are “saving the planet.” (Duane J. Hyland)
Remember the line about ‘wonderful’ wind power saving the Planet (from something or other)? No?
It’s certainly not doing much for millions of air-borne critters that are being belted to Kingdom come. Here’s Ken Richard tallying up the carnage.
Bat Destruction….Data Show Wind Energy Is Wiping Out Wildlife, And Not Saving It

8 August 2016
Bats are known to be some of the world’s savviest aerial acrobats. Using their mysterious sonar system and shape-shifting wings, bats adeptly swerve and swoop and dive in flight to avoid collisions with both stable and moving objects.
And yet bats stand no chance against a 200-meter high wind turbine with blades the length of a football field, spinning at speeds up to 275 km per hour. Even if their tiny bodies can avoid a blunt-force collision with one of these merciless steel beasts, just the act of drawing near…

If ‘Black Lives Matter’ cared about *black people, they should protest outside the UN’s World Bank HQ, for their declaration of a no-coal decree on Africa and 3rd-world countries, all but guaranteeing abject poverty, early mortality and immense suffering.
(Excuse the use of “black”, rather than the fact that we should all be judged as individuals, not by colour or creed, but by our character.)
Black Lives Matter has gone Climate in a big way, with a protest which shut down London City Airport. London City Airport is a premium facility located in the heart of London, near one of London’s major financial / banking districts.

“Do as I say, not as I do!”
Bureaucratic elitist hypocrites using other-people’s-money to fund their lavish ‘carbon’ intensive gabfests to protest against ‘carbon’, demanding everyone else curb their lifestyles.
You can’t make this stuff up.
By Viv Forbes
For at least 21 years now, the U.N. and the IPCC have been ringmaster to a troupe of thousands. They perform at massive annual conferences held in exotic locations, serviced by top hotels and airlines, and funded largely, directly or indirectly, by reluctant taxpayers.
An estimated 45,000 attendees, including 114 from the Australian government, achieved nothing useful at Copenhagen and just more green tape in Paris. Each of these climate-fests is preceded by numerous meetings of bureaucrats drafting and redrafting their wish lists.
Now the U.N. Climateer-in-Chief, Ban Ki-moon, has jetted into the G20 summit in China to claim climate victory over climate skeptics.
Is there no end to this energy-wasting climate tourism? If they believe that the science is settled, no more conferences are needed.
