02 Jul Green Machines Killed Tweety!
Wind Turbines. Saviors of mankind, if you were to believe the environmentalist faction. But what are they really? Well the Audobon society refers the them as “The Great Cuisinarts in the Sky”. These are bird killing machines. If you have a bird problem in your yard several of these butchers will fix you right up.
First off, the sheer volume of these machines that would be required to replace the system of “carbon based” power already in place would be massive. For instance the landmass required to fit each of these turbines to make up for the power missing in California currently, (note this is power missing not even to make up for power they have now that would be taken away) would be the size of Connecticut. The number of birds this would decapitate each year would be massive.
So far according to Conservancy spokesman Robert Johns approximately 100,000 – 300,000 birds are killed each year by wind farms. This is about 274 -822 birds each day in the United States. 80% of these are songbirds.
This incredible massacre of the bird population is massively more than have been killed in the BP oil spill. So what is more damaging to the environment: A coal plant that puts out carbon dioxide (which the plants use for energy) or miles and miles of deadly wind turbines? You decide, the birds already have.
