An Ill Wind: Open Season on Bald Eagles
By killing 6% of the Bald Eagle population every year!
More after the break.
Thus ensuring that wind power continues to create more carbon pollution, and higher electrical costs for decades to come.
Utilizing wind, and solar electrical energy generation, causes an increase in carbon emissions . . .
Fracking is the green energy alternative, while wind, and solar are not.
There is no reason for this whatsoever. This energy source does not do any of the things we want even with subsidies at every turn. Alternative energies require great subsidies for construction and siting, for the infrastructure build out, and for the individuals on the retail end to be willing to purchase this power. It also requires constantly running hot backup power sources due to its inconsistencies. In the end, it is uncommon for these power sources to actually be net carbon negative when compared to the best alternatives.
If we add in all the bird kills, this is mental illness/religion masquerading a science. We need to return to the real world on these policy decisions, eschew the secular environmental religion and do what actually achieves our overall goals of lower cost energy, lower carbon energy production, and lower environmental impact.
You know, like fracked natural gas, with nuclear as the base load supplier.
This is the blue model's crony socialism (it is not crony capitalism, without the socialist element - government with ready handouts of cash - there would be none of this, capitalist want to compete, socialists are the courtesans seeking benefit from the king, or in economics terminology, Rent Seekers) in action. The courtesan/businesses seek favors from the Rex/government, which favors those who benefit the royals/politicians the most (and in modern America, those who provide the royals/politicans with the best/most useable narrative).
These policies are only effective because of the Jodie Foster Effect. Be informed, make informed decisions, don't be a Jodie Fosterette:
"How do these people have all the time to know the things that they know?” She searched for the answer to her own question, and smiled. “I think I’m just not . . . I’m not a fact person. I don’t really care about facts. I don’t even really retain them and I find them anxious-making. I like ideas.”
They don't care about facts, they find facts make them anxious, and so avoid them. And like Jodie, they simply bask in ideas they like. Mostly this means adopting an ideology which makes them feel good about themselves, regardless of actual outcomes.
