Ontario Exceeding Bat Deaths By Wind Turbine Limit

Wind Turbines in Ontario come with a license to kill bats.

Ontario’s Ministry of Natural Resources has set 10 bat deaths per turbine as the threshold at which the mortalities are considered significant and warrant action.

And that number is being exceeded.

Bats are being killed in Ontario at the rate of 18.5 per turbine, resulting in an estimated 42,656 bat fatalities in Ontario between May 1 and October 31, 2015, according to the report released by Bird Studies Canada, a bird conservation organization.

Imagine what would happen if the oil industry was allowed to kill 10 bats or birds per oil well.

Imagine the screaming from “environmentalists”.

Birds are being killed too.

14,144 non-raptors killed by wind turbines and 462 raptor fatalities between May 1 and October 31 in 2015.

 

 

Antarctic Peninsula Cooling For 20 Years

Remember the Antarctic Peninsula … the small part of Antarctica that points towards Chile and is held up by the AGW cult as proof that Antarctica is warming.

Nope.

Its been cooling for 20 years.

And of course there was weaseling:

Scientists were quick to declare the results of the Turner et al paper, which covered 1 per cent of the Antarctic continent, did not negate a long-term warming because of man-made climate change.

Rather, they said, the ozone hole, changing wind patterns and natural variability had masked the long-term warming trend.

And not just any weaseling. Preplanned coordinated weaseling.

Prior to the paper’s publication, science media organisations around the world were ready with quotes from climate scientists to ensure the Turner paper was not misinterpreted.

Misinterpreted? You mean ordinary people might get confused by claims of warming that were refuted by cooling?
