Of course you don't get global warming and the need for change.
You don't want to, despite what stares you in the face each day.

Hot enough for ya? Flooding destroying homes okey with you? Hundreds of examples.
Try the US tornado alley to live?

I still do not see...."piles of birds" and no evidence what caused the dead, single bird.

I suspect Site C will be put on hold shortly along with Kinder Morgan.
While we seriously look at alternatives and even TRY some.

We are way off thread topic but believe me George, wind farms are killing off birds. It's not that GB is wrong, he's right: it's that all of it has downsides. That is a whole thread right there.
Don't want iced up driveways and roads? Clean out the street drains and gutters. Used to be called "civic duty."

Nothing is staring me in the face George. As for "the need for change", this is a total load of malarkey. There has to be a cost/benefit done. Does putting millions of people out of work solve anything? Does making everyone return to the stone age solve anything? NOPE

This is complete fear-mongering garbage. Tornadoes and floods happened well before Al Gore fooled you into thinking that weather and climate are affected by man. You have just bought into the stupidity and the fear mongering because the "cures" to these imaginary problems coincide with your personal confirmation bias.

I still do not see...."piles of birds" and no evidence what caused the dead, single bird.


This is such a giant load of horse crap. Shame on you, and shame on every single other hypocrite out there that claims to be an "environmentalist" and yet turns a blind eye to the horrible damage that wind farms do to the environment and to birds. Just disgusting.

Barclay’s research, begun in 2006, uncovered the surprising fact that migrating bats are much more likely than birds to be killed by wind turbines.

Thanks to their sonar bats can detect solid structures, but they cannot detect the changing air pressure that causes bleeding in their lungs. Birds’ lungs are able to withstand the pressure change.

Barclay’s groundbreaking research took place at Transalta’s Summerview wind farm near Pincher Creek in 2005. When the company noticed bat carcasses under the turbines, it asked Barclay to do a study.

Barclay and his team found 20 to 30 dead bats per turbine. But that number was cut almost in half when Transalta decided not run the turbines when the wind was low and bats are most active, he said.

And if so, these will be incredibly stupid acts, conducted by incredibly stupid people.

But for the whole lot worse, and all in the name of a fairy tale.
