14000 Abandoned Wind Turbines In The USA

Abandoned wind farm at South Point, Hawaii
According to Tony Aardvark, there are 14000 abandoned wind turbines in the USA. That's a blessing to birds and bats.

Tony writes:
The symbol of Green renewable energy, our saviour from the non existent problem of Global Warming, abandoned wind farms are starting to litter the planet as globally governments cut the subsidies taxes that consumers pay for the privilege of having a very expensive power source that does not work every day for various reasons like it’s too cold or  the wind speed is too high.
The US experience with wind farms has left over 14,000 wind turbines abandoned and slowly decaying, in most instances the turbines are just left as symbols of a dying Climate Religion, nowhere have the Green Environmentalists appeared to clear up their mess or even complain about the abandoned wind farms.
The same areas that are good for siting wind farms are also good for birds of prey and migrating birds to pass through, shame for the birds that none of the Green mental midgets who care so much about everything in nature, thought that one through when pushing their anti fossil fuel agenda.

The Green Gillard Government's "Clean Energy" Future

Between them, Coal and Nuclear supply 55% of the world's electricity. The Greens want to close the coalmines  and they say no to Nuclear power. Hydro supplies another 16% but the Greens say "No new dams."  Clean Green energy from the Green Gillard Government?

A recent letter to the Editor writer expressed the view that human green house gas emissions rose at the highest rate ever recorded. The writer continued "Without urgent action to reduce emissions, any hope of avoiding the most catastrophic consequences of AGW (man-made global warming) is rapidly fading."

The writer ignores the fact that there is no proof that human emissions of trace gas carbon dioxide causes runaway warming. In fact, from the Hadley Climate Research Unit's data shown above, that tenuous link is busted. Although atmospheric CO2 continues to rise, temperatures have stalled or actually slightly decreased.
