A victory for “Renewable Energy” and the Environmental Friendly Socialist Liberal…
"Hundreds of thousands of birds die each year flying into the deadly turbine blades atop the soaring towers that compose wind farms. The rule will give wind farms thirty year permits for the “non purposeful take of eagles-that is where the take is associated with but not the purpose of, the activity.” The take of eagles is also a euphemism for the slaughter of them.
Actually, the number of bird kills associated with our wind turbine farms, per AP, exceeds 570,000 annually. It is a statistic not likely to be brought up when an “environmentalist” parades an oil-soaked pelican before MSNBC.
I’ve never understood the left’s environmental friendly, tree-hugger mentality. You know the ones I’m talking about that live in a wooden house but they don’t want YOU to live in a wooden house. They commit criminal acts to prevent more wooden houses from being built.
The decisions made by these wise socialists are all over the map. Save the endangered “delta smelt” fish but halt water to California’s Central Valley, considered to be the richest and most productive farmland in the nation. That little shit fish landed on the endangered species list, causing a federal court to shut down vital pumps to farmers to help preserve it.
Then there’s busing. Spend billions of state and federal dollars in fuel to bus students across town. Sometimes a 45 minute trip away from their own neighborhood school because socialists believe there was something magical about sitting next to whites in a classroom.
It’s not what you learn it’s who you sit next to in a classroom. Just think of all the pollution from the exhaust of these buses driving back and forth so many miles. Doesn’t that defeat the federal Clean Air Act? Couldn’t they allow cheap energy from coal and forget about carbon footprints if they didn’t bus so many millions of students in every state? Millions of miles of driving has done what for education?
Global Warming junk scientist Al Gore predicted in 2009 that the North Polar Ice Cap would be completely ice free in five years.
Predicting that the ice caps were melting, the polar bears were drowning and Manhattan would sink beneath 20 feet of water “in the near future.” But since 1998, temperatures have been relatively flat. We’ve got more polar bears than ever, and Manhattan in spring last month was under snow. What a dick. And liberals wanted him as president.
Who would have been better Algore or Barack Hussein Obama the potus who now remembers that illegal immigrant uncle he said he never met. lol.
What have we learned here?
…killing hundreds of thousands of birds, including eagles that fly into windmills is okay but saving over 37,000 jobs lost due to the smelt fish issue and watering farmland that feeds the nation is not okay.
Should we hold our breath waiting for a Sierra Club commercial depicting the slicing and dicing of an eagle by turbine blades?
That’s dumber than George Bush isn’t it?
