      I’m tired of seeing wind turbines offered as a prime example of how to fight climate change. The cost of ruined landscapes, sleep-robbing noise, shadow flicker and dead flying creatures is just too high. They don’t’ even supplant existing power plants because wind is erratic and needs backup power.

      Mocking is not the logical debate. Politicians need fake crisis to deconstruct my home land’s freedom. Weather changes, duh, but this is a slow motion crisis & a storm in a tea cup. Politicians can create better crisis by supply weapons to ISIS and then react to the crisis arming ISIS has created. Barry has blood on his hands and no plausable denialability for treason of aiding enemy of USA.
