There is no “climate crisis.” But there is an international political scam regarding climate and energy. The scam is about to take its toll. This winter many places in Europe and some places in the U.S. will experience some unpleasant consequences of this scam because energy policy is producing a scarcity of energy to heat homes and generate electricity.
The political scheme is to stop generation of electricity using “fossil” fuels and turn instead to “renewable” energy such as wind and solar generation. This option is turning out to be neither “greener” nor cleaner than the use of fossil fuels. Europeans are experiencing skyrocketing costs for electricity as they replace reliable fossil fuel electrical generation with wind and solar which cannot respond to supply and demand.
Part of the reason wind and solar generation is not “green” is that it takes up vast areas of land, wreaking havoc with agriculture and destroying wildlife habitat and chopping up birds and bats.
According to the Nuclear Energy Institute:
If all electricity were to be supplied by solar generation it would require 11,674 solar farms with a total footprint of 525,312 square miles.
If all electricity were to be supplied by wind generation, it would require 6,954 wind farms with a total footprint of 1,808,166 square miles.
If all electricity was supplied by nuclear generation, it would require 3,553 nuclear stations with a total footprint of 4,619 square miles. (Source)
Here is what it would look like:
“The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) and American Bird Conservancy say wind turbines kill 440,000 bald and golden eagles, hawks, falcons, owls, cranes, egrets, geese and other birds every year in the United States, along with countless insect-eating bats. Newer studies reveal that these appalling estimates are frightfully low and based on misleading or even fraudulent data. The horrific reality is that in the United States alone, “eco-friendly” wind turbines kill an estimated 13 million to 39 million birds and bats every year.
