“The last remaining vulture species native to southeastern Europe is “likely” faced with extinction in the next few decades due to an “eight to ten times greater” mortality rate associated with the rapid expansion of wind energy projects in the region (Vasilakis et al., 2017).”
WHERE’S the outrage from environmental and wildlife groups? There is none because the “global warming” agenda and the implementation of fake fixes to a fake catastrophe is far more important than saving flora and fauna. Herein lies the folly of the great global warming ‘religion’. Completely devoid of sanity or reason and scandalously immune to scrutiny.
As STT followers are well-aware, this site doesn’t mince its words: wind power is the greatest economic and environmental fraud in human history.
Pull the subsidies, and this so-called ‘industry’ would disappear in a heartbeat.
For the best part of 20 years, the wind cult has attempted to justify the hundreds of $billions squandered on subsidies for wind power, as being all for the greater good.
Armchair environmentalists – who have never planted trees to prevent erosion on creek lines or dragged junk and gunk out of polluted waterways – claim ‘mission accomplished’, every time a new wind turbine whirls into (occasional) action.
Obsequious charlatans (like Simon Holmes a Court) even encourage naïve and gullible virtue signallers into ‘investing’ in so-called community wind farms (see our post here). They never get their money back, but at least they can tell their mates at Getup! that they’ve done their bit…

“The EU Blows $683 million (£520m)” of *other-peoples’-money* on “save the planet” feel-good fantasies.
NEVER mind. No amount of wasted public money can trump good intentions and “Save The Planet” virtue. /sarc
From the “models didn’t predict this” and the “Climate Action” department:
An investigation found that Brussels blew the colossal sum of cash on a drive to build underground storage facilities for CO2 emissions – but no such facilities were ever constructed.
This week the architect of the scheme, a former Lib Dem MEP, admitted this was because officials bungled their predictions for the environmental costs facing businesses.
The revelations, uncovered by the website EUobserver, will heap further pressure on EU chiefs who are already facing increased scrutiny over their spending due to Brexit.
Britain’s departure from the bloc is set to blow a £9 billion a year hole in its budget, with a number of member states actively calling for Brussels’ largesse to be be reined in.
Eurosceptics in the UK have long complained about the cost and red tape related to European environmental regulations which they accuse of stifling…

“Super Hot” Arctic “Death Spiral” Update…
It seems that Churchill residents and visitors woke up this morning to find most local polar bears had left to go hunting — on the sea ice that supposedly doesn’t exist. Right in the middle of the Polar Bear Week campaign devised by Polar Bears International to drum up donation dollars and public sympathy for polar bear conservation!
Frigid temperatures and north winds last night helped the process along, but this early freeze-up has been in the works for almost a week. From what I can ascertain, it appeared the only bears around onshore today were a mother with her young cub moving out towards the ice (females with cubs are usually the last to move offshore, probably to reduce the risk of encounters with adult males who might kill the cubs).
Tundra Buggy cams at Explore.org have been showing markedly fewer bears today and those that have…
