Forget the 150,000 birds a year killed each year by the windmill scam, a system that exists so that urbanites can pay for more their electricity.
Windmills are stupid and terrible. Period.
The only reason to have a windmill is because you’re living in Holland some centuries back. There’s no reason to have a windmill unless you live in an isolated and windy peak.
And even then it’s a bad idea.
Forget the dead birds. Windmills are noisy and inefficient. They’re not reliable ways to generate power. They cost more than they’re worth. And they’re the pivot of a scam in which urban energy monopolies buy windmill credits and then tell their consumers that they have to pay more because they’re getting power from renewables. They’re not. They’re buying renewable credits. That means a windmill is running somewhere in Wisconsin or Iceland, where no one needs it, and New Yorkers or San Franciscans are paying more for their electricity even though it comes from the same old sources. But their power now gets balanced out by these supposed credits which are paid to run the windmills no one needs.
Summary: A useless windmill, which if anything, pollutes the planet. While the money gets greenwashed through the usual green mafia that explains 50% of why we get the constant hysterical shrieking about global warming, climate change, and the incoming ice age.
Or whatever it is this Tuesday.
Windmills are stupid. They don’t generate much in the way of power because their source is unreliable. That hasn’t stopped cities like New York City, which doesn’t have enough wind to power Bill de Blasio’s Twitter account, from shoving them everywhere in the name of the environment.
Summary: Windmills that no one needs and that don’t do anything except waste materials, energy, and money. And are actually a net environmental loss.
Yes, windmills are stupid terrible.
