Ha Ha Ha – You Do Get A Laugh Sometimes!

This NYT Greenie doesn’t seem to realise how ridiculous and unbelievable this is!

We now have environment reporters defending the slaughter of wildlife by huge corporations. Truth, they say, is stranger than fiction!

I once had a MP compare it to road kill. One man’s “road kill” is another man’s “endangered species”. I feel sorry for the bats. Lots of bird lovers, but nobody cares for the bats.

Nearly 500 Birds Found Dead Near Wind Farm
By MATTHEW L. WALD

” …The birds were migrating in conditions of high winds and fog, with a low cloud ceiling. “These conditions would likely have caused nocturnal migrants to fly closer to the ground, where they could have been attracted to the night lighting at the substation facility,” the report said. The birds “either collided with structures at the substation or circled to the point of exhaustion,” it said.

Yeah, right! -Pull the other one – it plays God Save The Queen!!!

Between Oct. 3 and Oct. 18, searchers found 484 carcasses, which were analyzed by biologists. Blackpoll warblers made up 65 percent, and ovenbirds, 7.5 percent. Twenty-eight other species were found, including thrushes, cuckoos and one green heron. Nine birds were listed as unknown… “

Strange, I cannot find any of these species on this list of pages in category “Eastern North American migratory birds” – http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Category:Eastern_North_American_migratory_birds – I was surprised that so many birds flew at night – and why any of them ever make it to where they are going, what with all the other lights found on the their route, but then I’m not a bird expert, by any means.

  1. Hi Grant,
    That is terrible, where are the greenies now? Why aren’t they up in arms over this mess that they alone created? The silence is deafening. 😦
