US President Donald Trump lashes out at wind farms

The President of the United States of America, Donald Trump said that wind turbine production causes a large carbon footprint, as the President lashed out at wind farms on Saturday. The President went a step further to say that he never understood wind, during a speech to the conservative student group Turning Point USA.

President is not exaggerating about the problem. Windfarms require a big use of oil to build and maintain them. Often when they break down, they cost a great deal to fix. Wind power is not the answer. Nuclear salt reactors is currently the only good option... But there is also nothing wrong with coal and oil. Developing countries desperately need these to get out of poverty.

Haha the media just cracks me up on the way they choose to report the “news”.

First off, misleading headline. Secondly, funny choice for a photo. Thirdly, Can someone explain to me how wind farms kill birds? The windmills that I have seen on wind farms generally turn slowly. Are birds just flying into them anyway?

I wonder what the full context of his statements really were? It will take a few days to find that out.

I live in Scotland County NC. We are a hotbed of solar farms initiative and testing. Electricity in our county is twice any neighboring county despite ours being the poorest county in the State. You can see how idiotic this stuff is. You drive by and see men mowing the lawn around the solar panels. Using gas mowers. They are using actual gallons of gasoline to mow. They have to do this regularly or the panels get covered with vegetation. How much energy does that use? They also have to pay these guys to clean the panels or else they lose efficiency. Then they have to pay an army of electricians to maintain the extremely complicated and delicate cabling. And the best part is that these are not even local jobs, it is all outsourced and highly open minded. You try to get close to those solar panels and a man at the gate will tell you get lost, only a little less polite than that. Tall fences and stern signs about trespassing and prosecution. Soon there won’t be much of the county left where you can walk freely in the shade. Feels more like prison here every day. Death to feminists.

Grug uses wind turbine to farm birds. Grug not go hungry since. Grug think every cave should have wind turbine.

I love seeing the left come into the app and try to push propaganda when the majority of the users on here call it out. We’re on this app because we know the Media pushes propaganda for the left, posting propaganda here just proves our point.

As far as understanding "wind," can anyone on here explain was causes wind without googling it? ;)

The only thing I fault him for in that segment was the whole birds thing. While it is true that many birds are killed by windmills, many more are killed by fumes from refineries, tall buildings, cars, planes, and many other factors. Personally, I don't like windmills and find that there are many, much more efficient and cost effective methods of energy production. However, using bird deaths as a reason really wasn't the smartest nor most effective example possible.

I don't know about a large carbon footprint but it does take a very large number of them and this is not cheap. The sheer number of these wind turbines is a lot of maintenance; far better to have fewer numbers of infrastructure to maintain and build and which are able to generate electricity at scale and on demand (instead of just when the wind is blowing). Nuclear is far better and we should be building more nuclear plants rather than wind turbines.

He’s right about wind, saw fields of dead rusted turbines up in Temecula. Not cheap to build and wind is not always blowing, the Sun is always shining down on Earth some where, Capturing solar fusion has now become the cheapest way to produce electricity
