Yet Another Reason to Detest Wind Turbines

They are hideous and mar otherwise scenic landscapes. They are economically inefficient. They generate a constant noise that drives people who live near them insane. They kill raptors, including the most beautiful of birds, eagles and hawks. They kill bats, which aren’t so beautiful, but keep the mosquito population under control. They are coercively subsidized with money Big Government confiscates from us. They are involved in boondoggles that allow crony capitalists to get rich by allocating wealth unreasonably after cozying up to slimy politicians. They are an immediately recognizable symbol of pure moonbattery. They remind those driving through the countryside that there is no escape from the P.C. ruling class and its demented mandates anywhere. Plus they start wildfires. From the Uinta County [Wyoming] Fire and Ambulance Fakebook page from last Saturday:

Crews currently battling a 700 acre wildfire northeast of Evanston. The Cowboy Fire started early this afternoon after a windmill caught fire and then spread into the sagebrush and cedar trees with gusty winds.

The Cowboy Fire has since expanded to at least 1,592 acres.

At least maybe the fire will burn down the hideous turbines. Except then taxpayers will be forced to buy new ones.

    And who said they have no carbon footprint?

    Unlike Al Gore’s huge jetliner, which magically consumes no irreplaceable fossil fuel and produces no pollution of any kind, turbines do when they burn.

    Seriously, the older ones that grind grain catch fire and explode much less often.

    I used to visit my grandpa in a very remote town. The landscape was beautiful, a valley maybe 30 miles across surrounded by hills and mountains. One day when I drove up one of those mountains to his house, I noticed on the opposite mountain a string of disgusting wind towers, gone up seemingly overnight. I doubt the people of the tiny surrounding towns had any say in the matter.

    The Lib-IDIOT eco-fascists at KFC like WIND TURBINES…..they use them to cut up their solar-fried birds !!!!! https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/00f4cd02acea5a75ca04ca9fb43825a9fecd6dd0ea48dabbca42aa25c954f6cf.jpg

    It won’t help. The heat from prairie fires makes these new windmill towers spread seeds in all directions. Birds and small woodland animals rush in to feast on these seeds, and poop them out over a wide area in a ready made, nutrient rich environment.

    This clever strategy ensures their survival.
