Many articles have been circulating about wind turbines causing the deaths of certain bat species. Here is a U.S. government article.
The other striking pattern is that the vast majority of bat fatalities at wind turbines occur during late summer and autumn.I presume that the environmentalists will be suing the government to ensure that all wind turbines are shut down during this period. Okay, seriously... they all don't really worry about some bats that are so stupid they mistake a wind turbine tower for a tree. And what are a few bats? There are millions... billions... of those creatures. Not endangered... nothing to look at here.
Besides, if we can't build anymore coal fired power plants, we'll have to build more wind turbines like those that the Pennsylvania governor supports.
Of course we won't connect them to the power grid. Okay, that's just the agenda of the fringe environmentalists who put bats and slime mold ahead of "green" solutions.Hey, being environmentally friendly just might mean something has to die. Get over it.
Don't you think "mainstream" environmentalist groups would come up with some way to differentiate themselves? The "Green and Cleans" versus the "Shut it Downs?"
Besides that, don't you find the "foomp, foomp, foomp" sound and the strobe effect of the rotors fascinating... hypnotic even?..
