Callous Carnage: Wind Industry Slicing & Dicing Threatened Bird & Bat Species With Impunity

The latest meme amongst climate alarmists is that the rate of species extinction is running rampantly out-of-control. So dire are the warnings that, if they materialise, we’ll be lucky if we get to spot any kind of critter crawling the earth, in a decade or two.

Why Wind Power Can Never Work (Unless it’s Rocketing Power Prices & Environmental Destruction You’re After?)

Australian voters just rejected a massive increase in wind and solar, relegating Bill Shorten and his 50% RET to the dusty pages of history.

Bug’s Life: Bees & Other Flying Critters Being Wiped Out By Wind Turbines

Giant industrial wind turbines mean an ignominious slaughter for almost anything on the wing. 50-80m blades, with their tips travelling at over 300 km/h, readily slice and dice birds and bats in their millions every year. Then there’s a smorgasbord of smaller flying critters, like bees, wasps, dragonflies and other environmentally and agriculturally beneficial insects […]

Avian Exodus: Loons Vacate Vast Tracts of North Sea To Escape Wind Turbines

The wind industry’s rampant bird and bat slaughter is an inconvenient truth, to be sure. The wholesale slaughter of millions of birds and bats – includes rare, endangered and majestic species, like America’s iconic bald and golden eagles.

Industrialised Murder: Indian Study Shows Wind Turbines Slaughter 75% of Local Raptors

  One issue that annoys RE zealots, like a burr under a frisky pony’s saddle blanket, is the wind industry’s rampant bird and bat slaughter. It’s an inconvenient truth to be sure.
