If the oil industry has a crude oil spill, environmentalists come out of the woodwork screaming bloody murder, and yet what a double standard we have as alternative energy causes more deaths of birds by a fact of 10,000 than oil spills. Shouldn’t we talk about this in our debate over alternative energy? Let’s talk now, since no one else will, shall we?
You see, Environmental Activists offer up such bogus solutions to their anti-CO2 escapades that they’d have you believe we can power up the whole world with Wind Power – which is clearly for the birds, actually it’s not, it kills them – so much for their so-called caring of the environment and endangered species. Wind Energy Technology is not the only alternative energy killing off bird populations. In fact, there was an interesting article on the CFact Website recently titled; “Shady Circumstances Cloud Huge Solar Energy Plant Bailout,” and this is the same plant that NBC News reported that: “Streamers: Birds Fried in Midair by Solar Plant, Feds Say,” yes, that’s right incinerated in flight like a laser beam from a Death Star in Star Wars.
It’s obvious to me that all of the Global Warming Alarmist Apologetics are perhaps a little hypocritical in their mindset. Look at it this way; they call the dead birds at this solar plant; Streamers – because they fall to the ground like Japanese Zero’s in the WWII film Tora, Tora, Tora – so much for these AGW fundamentalists and their Kyoto Treaty inspiration. Sure, we understand the environmental issues, but isn’t this debate going to the birds?
If we put up wind turbines everywhere as an alternative to fossil fuels wouldn’t that slow down the wind in areas known to blow wind like mountain passes, thus, taking away a cool source of air, thus, heating up things in those areas? If our goal is to supposedly prevent warming, why slow down the wind? Sound far-fetched, it shouldn’t because can you even imagine how many wind turbines it would take to power up a major city in the USA?
Okay so, back to the birds, as that’s what this article is really about. Doesn’t anyone care about the huge number of birds killed by these expensive energy turbines or the reality that the CO2 emitted in making the steel towers takes 15-years to offset? Why all the investment in wind turbines? Is it because they are made in Germany in the city where IPCC meetings have taken place, a country that funneled lots of money to Obama’s 2008 election at $99 increments unreported/untraceable for election process in the US. I am sure there is no conspiracy? Or, well, maybe there is? What say you? Has alternative energy moved towards the Dark Side?
