Pointless Wind Farm Carnage: British Study Confirms Wholesale Bat Slaughter

Bats matter to our environment as they assist with pollination, pest control and seed dispersion. In the UK it is an offence to deliberately (or recklessly in Scotland) disturb a bat in a way that would (significantly in Scotland) affect its ability to survive, breed or rear young …. or significantly affect the local distribution or abundance of the species. Dead […]

Professor Ian Plimer Slams the Great Wind Power Fraud

**** Greens’ silence on folly of wind and solar power News Weekly Ian Plimer 25 October 2014 A simple evaluation of ideological electricity shows that it is unsustainable. The answer is certainly not blowing in the wind. The amount of energy embedded in steel pylons, concrete footings, blades, wiring, magnets, land clearing and roads is […]

“Confused Bats” to Blame for “Unprecedented” Wind Farm Bat Slaughter

Wind farms are certified bird and bat slaughterhouses, where millions are clobbered, sliced and diced every year (see our post here). Now, apparently, it’s turned out to be all the bats’ fault.
