Oxford ecologist Clime Humbler has written a must read article on the shocking environmental costs of renewable energy. Wind farms particularly are devastating populations of rare birds and bats across the world, but for ideological reasons environmentalists prefer to ignore the carnage:
Wind turbines only last for ‘half as long as previously thought’, according to a new study. But even in their short lifespans, those turbines can do a lot of damage. Wind farms are devastating populations of rare birds and bats across the world, driving some to the point of extinction. Most environmentalists just don’t want to know. Because they’re so desperate to believe in renewable energy, they’re in a state of denial. But the evidence suggests that, this century at least, renewables pose a far greater threat to wildlife than climate change.
