    in energy and environmental issues then myself, and I hate to think what you deal with on a day-to-day basis. Oil is so powerful the guy basically told me they can't even have a "discussion" about something other than oil. Just a non-starter from the getgo.

    That is just so darn sad I don't know what to say.

    I like to be positive, but at some levels I am coming to think our nation is FUBAR at this point.

      to the Cape Cod wind farm were financed by Big Coal (namely Massy Energy). This is far more common than most people realize.

        this topic after the other guy (William) left. He said a few turbines had been set-up in the area. Not many, less then a dozen on two farms. Know what folks, you know liberal folks to be honest, were the ones bitching about them. I guess they are killing 4-5 bats a day (night really of course).

        I can't speak for other parts of the nation on this point, but we got a lot of bugs here (I think cause of all the crops) and we kind of like bats. We realize, even Republicans, that they do serve a purpose in the eco-chain of things.

        Look I don't want to install a turbine where the owner each day has to go out, ankle deep in dead brids, to clean them up. But my understanding is the far, far, far,left groups overestimate this problem like 1,000%.

          shown that simply paying groups to spade feral cats will save far more birds than windmills kill. I think I remember reading that if a bats predator sounds are made (below human frequency), that and the combo of bats getting killed in the area will keep many of them away.
