Wind Subsidies Are Killing Eagles

PSA: Your tax dollars are being spent by the billions to subsidize wind turbines, which are killing 600,000+ birds every year including eagles, rare owls, and migratory birds.
Is this really environmentally friendly?

Michael Moore lets some truth bombs drop in his movie "Planet of the Humans taken down", but the movie gets taken down, possibly by some fake environmentalist control freak zealots. Michael Moore is a left winger who occasionally gets it right on the environment, but like anyone else, he pays the price whenever he tells the truth. Fake environmentalists are those who claim to be for the environment, like Al Gore, Bernie Sanders, Jeff Bezos, Barak Obama, and Tom Steyer. They don't seem too worried about the ocean swallowing their seaside homes while claiming icebergs are melting and sea levels will be rising to precarious levels. They're willing to tell everybody else how to live, while they live lives of mass consumption.

@Dave Stennes no i dont agree we humans produce 100x more co2 than all volcanos combined, greenhouse effect is here now; temeratures rising is already becoming visible i can even feel it in my hometown, less rain, snow becoming rare in places it is supposted to snow oh and also forgot to mention fossil fuels kill more birds than wing turbines and also why would they make this shit up?

@Semi-automatic door opened I think as more data becomes available and it's not politicized we will come to a better understanding of CO2 levels and it's relationship to the environment. I could easily see in previous eras that decaying vegetation produced more CO2 then all of our current CO2 production from fossil fuel consumption. We should focus on microhabitats instead of the global effect of CO2 that is mostly speculative.

Fun fact (and it's literally as easy as googling "how many birds die per year from wind turbines" and scrolling just a bit) cats kill literally millions of birds every single year and so do cell towers. Here's my source so you can see for yourself because, unlike Prager U, I actually care about the truth.

All birds matter! More songbirds are killed by wind turbines than eagles.
nanofish42 2 сарын өмнө
While I agree that it would be better to push high density energy sources such as nuclear, this video is a bit misleading. The study they are likely citing found that around 576,000 birds died in 2012 a more accurate total would be 300,000-350,000 per year. But even if you were to take the 600,000 number presented and scale up wind turbine and bird deaths up to 100% of power generation in the United States, it would still only account for 1.64% of the total birds killed in this country due to man made sources. And that would be on the high end.

I think the message that wind turbines are bird killers and that there are subsidy shenanigans is relevant. With that said, I am disappointing at the use of some of the referenced numbers. The video highlights the bald eagle and to a lesser extent the golden eagle but never gives us those specific numbers. Instead it uses the number of birds killed in general. This conflation of the subject of Bald Eagle and general birds killed strikes me as a bit of a spin. As a conservative, I prefer to get all the relevant facts and make my own decision rather than being manipulated. It may not be intentional but with today's media - especially the left - I've become cynical. Just give me the facts man. :P

You ever notice how everything good in this country is hated and villified by the left. But all the things they champion ends up being destructive, harmful, and bad for the country. You know, if I didn't know better, I might think they are intentionally doing everything in their power to destroy us. But it's all just a big coincidence right? No one would intentionally set out to destroy everything good around them, would they? Sadly that question is satirical, of COURSE they would....and have....and are! They have spent the last 100 years molding, shaping, influencing, and manipulating our culture into the frightened, wimpy, crybaby, tantrum throwing, spoiled brat, bully culture we live in today. If we don't take back our country (and our world) today, there may not be anything left to salvage tomorrow!

Please look at the statistics for how many birds are killed each year by glass windows, or by domestic cats. Yes, wind turbines kill birds and bats. Yes, that's a real problem that we should address. But there are many, many, human industries that kill wild animals, and we accept a reasonable cost for the progress we've made as a species. Climate change is killing animals and it will continue to do so, and so will wind turbines. The only way to protect every bald eagle would be to go off the grid and live an Amish lifestyle. I don't think many of us want that.

From a study on bird deaths: "Within the uncertainties of the data used, the estimate means that wind farm-related avian fatalities equated to approximately 46,000 birds in the United States in 2009, but nuclear power plants killed about 460,000 and fossil-fueled power plants 24 million." So wind farms are still better than coal fired plants.

We were paid to have wind turbines on top of one of our properties, but they were never built (so we stopped getting the checks-they pursued us, we didn’t pursue them). We heard it was stopped b/c this was a path of migration for golden eagles. Where we live (a few miles from that property) in the middle of a national forest, we have seen 2 bald eagles in the 8 years we have lived her. One was right behind our house one morning just feet out my window. It flew up the creek (it was a spiritual thing for me and I took it as a sign from YHVH b/c I so needed it that a.m. Also, 5 miles from me, one morning a friend and I watched a pair of bald eagles diving for breakfast over her lake. It’s truly a blessing to spot one.

The problem is MONEY. To put up one windmill it takes at least 6 specially designed tractor trailers, and a small army of pilot cars to move the parts. There is the amount of land, sometimes farmland, that is torn up to build the one windmill. There is the heavy equipment, cranes and more, needed to assemble the windmill on site. There are windmill farms destroying the landscape of America. There is nothing green about it.

Yes, wind turbines kill birds, but 1 billion die every year from flying into buildings, and up to 10 billion from cats/predatory birds. The Tehachapi windfarm has killed thousands since it opened, but there were only 30 pairs of raptors living in the area when it opened. There are over 3,000 pairs there now. They didn't have a place to roost, but with the wind farm came nesting. It's sad that they die, but their population increased 100 fold because of the farm. Hydro is great, but we can't build any more dams; just no where to put them. Solar sucks. Not because it's a bad idea, but because over 95% of the energy is lost in the transfer from collection to distribution. Coal is coal. Wind is a good idea, but there's no way to store energy, so they only run when needed and hydro/coal can't cover those needs. Nuclear is the best, but people believe propaganda and misinformation from the 1950s. We've come a long way in improving it, but misconceptions, building plants on fault lines, and graft have destroyed any chance of them being built to satisfy our power needs.

But it’s ok when oceans are poisoned by oil? When coal plants kill natural life around them? Or when children in Delhi hardly ever see the sun because of pollution? It may be sad that Eagles die from wind turbines but the alternatives is worse. And also, you talk about ‘evidence suggests’ without any actual evidence, look at how slow wind turbines actual spin, it’s very unlikely for a bird to lethally harmed

But since it's no longer on the Endangered Species list, and why would they care about bats and owls, the wind farms get the favor.

The same is happening in Norway and in other countries. WHEN WILL PEOPLE LEARN THAT NUCLEAR ENERGY IS THE ANSWER.
