Mr Driessen is correct on manmade "global warning"; there is no GOOD evidence for it.. However, there is also NO good evidence that wind turbines kill birds, or that solar collectors do harm to the land under them, either. Both claims are NONSENSE, and repeating them cheapens his argument. A few years ago the same bird-killing claim was made against communications towers; it was also false. One ignorant moron stood up at a meeting about the Cape Wind project, and said he was protesting the turbines because they "would spill oil into the sound". Wind turbines kill no more birds than any other large elevated structure. Solar panels on the ground do no more damage to the earth than anything else that casts a shadow.

A special dispensation to wind power produucers to kill bald eagles is not curious?

Provide some evidence to back your claims.

The United States is now Balkanized into five distinct voting blocs, says Joel Kotkin. Other political analysts see the nation bifurcating along “makers” and “takers” lines, while still others say 50.6% of the popular vote is hardly a mandate. In any event, when American voters reelected President Obama, they also returned his EPA, Interior, Energy and Justice Departments, and their wide-ranging agenda for “fundamentally transforming” our nation.

This won’t mean just Obamacare, higher taxes on businesses and families, rampant spending, and tens of thousands of pages of new regulations. It will also bring more disputes over energy and environmental...
