Last knight i saw POTUS in a conference with young conservatives. He started to say that he knows windmills better than anyone.
Then he went on to say that wind energie farms produce toxic fumes and kills all birds. That you will find a bird graveyard at the base of these windmills.
On an other occasion at a rally when bragging about rolling back regulation on incandescent light bulbs, he also said that the noise windmills produce cause cancer.
I really don't care about politics one bit but i do care about the environment. And when i hear that the EPA is shredding all regulations on endangered species, i wonder what is going on in USA.

Sadly, and much as I hate to admit it, The Donald did have something of a correct point; there is at least one authentic wildlife survey that shows higher death rates for both birds and bats in the vicinity of turbines. Always something that makes alrernative energy production less than perfect !

I deliberately said POTUS because i really don't care about the individual. I care about the position, when broadcasting false information.
Wind turbines kill far less birds than other manmade installations. Like strikes to building glass, power line electrocutions and collisions,fossil fuel energy plants, and massive oil spills and pesticides.
Alternative ernergy is not perfect and will never be, at least it combats climate change witch eventually will kill all birds if left unchecked.
