Imagine the outrage if this majestic bird-of-prey were doused in oil?
“Bird mortality by wind turbines is such a well-established fact in wind energy circles that in 2013 a wind energy company agreed to pay $1 million in fines after the Justice Department proved it guilty in a first criminal case against a wind power company for the deaths of protected birds.”
STATE-sanctioned bird and bat slaughter.
WHERE’S the outrage from ‘green’ and ‘environmental’ groups? Crickets.
Renewable energy zealots didn’t invent hypocrisy, but they seem quite comfortable wearing it, like their very own badge of honour.
If wind power was even close to being a meaningful power generation source, you might, just might justify the wave of environmental and societal destruction that comes with it. Abandoned centuries ago for pretty obvious reasons, wind power was redundant the moment James Watt turned steam into motive force.
The wind cult, however, have no difficulty in justifying the destruction of pristine landscapes; the dismemberment of once cohesive, rural communities; the creation of toxic waste lands in China (where the rare earths essential to wind turbines are processed); power prices that punish the poorest and most vulnerable in society; and barely bat an eyelid at the slaughter of millions upon millions of birds and bats, across the globe.
