True Environmentalists understand that the most efficient use of resources is generally the most environmentally friendly usage. The modern day green movement gives itself away by what it does not advocate. Hunting is both organic and environmentally friendly but is the bane of today’s leftists. They prefer manufacturing millions of non-biodegradable plastic bags over cutting and replanting a few trees. Coal may be dirty but you would have to burn many more trees to produce the amount of energy of one lump. Nuclear power and natural gas are the most clean and efficient energy resources. Of course we could clear cut a few million acres, wipe dozens of species of birds and have electricity only on windy days.

To my knowledge, burning coal does not do either, and the CO2 produced is part of the raw materials in the performance of Photosynthesis.

The bats should be so lucky to be deafened. The turbines explode their lungs (due to pressure changes) and kill them. It's gruesome.
Then all the bugs and mosquitoes the bats would have eaten thrive. Then we need more insecticide or suffer crop losses. Green is much more cruel and damaging than it claims.
Environmental activists and politicians would like you to think that we must love their regulations -- or hate trees and animals.

I love trees and animals.

But you can love nature and still hate the tyranny that environmental regulations bring.

The Environmental Protection Agency just announced it will boost gas prices ("only" a penny, although industry says 6 to 9 cents) to make another minuscule improvement to air quality.

In New York City, my mayor wants to ban Styrofoam cups, saying, "I think it's something we can do without."

Congress already dictates the design of our cars, toilets and light bulbs.
