Germany has just removed all environmental protection for birds and bats that are killed by wind turbines. Thes ugly monstrosities kill more than a quarter of a million animals each year, and the government forced through the legislation to let them keep doing so.
What is even worse is that wind turbines don’t actually produce much energy. They are in fact kept working by regular electric motors that consume regular energy when the wind doesn’t blow. The lies that Germany gets so much energy from wind turbines are wildly deceptive. YES, the energy comes “from” the turbines” but the turbines are rarely powered by the wind!
So not only do they kill hundreds of thousands of animals a year, but they rely on regular energy sources to keep running! They are a scam to tax you more. Don’t believe any of it.
As reported in the Daily Caller:
Germany’s parliament abolished environmental protections for birds and bats and allowed companies to build more wind turbines, according to a statement released Monday.
The Bundestag, Germany’s parliament, removed some protections under the Nature Protection Act to accelerate the construction of new wind farms, which tend to kill birds and bats. Regulations were only rolled back for animals killed by wind turbines, not those that died to other industrial activity.
Germany has added 27,000 wind farms in the last few years, but until now, many violated laws protecting endangered species. German environmental groups were furious with the legal changes, arguing that wind turbines already kill 250,000 bats and 12,000 birds in the country every year.
