The Ugly Face of Green

West Virginian Mountains defaced by bird shredding monsters
A whirling forest of blades now confronts birds in this previously pristine mountain wilderness - birds which are being sacrificed for a twisted green ideology.

One that did not make it.

The concentrated heat at the centre of this Californian solar array is like a death ray to unwary birds.
. Workers at the Ivanpah solar power plant call these birds “streamers,” as they ignite in midair and plummet to the ground trailing smoke. Federal wildlife investigators said there was, on average, one streamer every two minutes — or hundreds of thousands of incinerated birds per year. Another expert estimated that the number is nearer 28,000 per year. 

Birds are having feathers burnt off in flight.

  1. Your views are good and I like that you raise this point about this type of power generation. There are a lot of people do not know about these facts.
