Obama Looks the Other Way When Wind & Solar Power Kill Birds & Bats
By Institute for Energy Research
Massive solar power plants and wind turbines are killing birds and bats in large numbers, but the Obama Administration is not disturbed. In Appalachia, the administration imposes strict standards on the amount of salt in streams below coal mines because it may (or may not) have an adverse effect on mayflies and other flies, but hundreds of thousands of birds and bats are killed every year by solar and wind facilities and the Obama administration shrugs it off.

Blame climate change. Blaming climate change has become as much a part of the Canadian lexicon as “how’s it going, eh?”
