LOL, these guys are so funny.... I guess its not good enough for these people that we waste all this money on this Green Energy that is still to expensive, and not economically viable, they want to take us all the way back to the 1800's with human beings plowing the fields. (these people would never allow us to use animals for that) The funny thing is that id be willing to bet they all have their IPads, and various other gadgets which wouldnt be possible to produce if they got their way, and you can bet your ass not a single one of them has ever put in a tough days work on a farm before, nor would they be willing to if they got their way, so basically they believe the world should run on Pixie dust. Anti-Occupy Protest Takes on Bird Killing Wind Turbines An anti-Occupy Wall Street movement (who call themselves "Occupy Occupy D.C.") protested bird killing wind turbines today at Freedom Plaza in Washington, D.C. The group gathered "to highlight the threat that wind, a celebrated alternative energy source, poses to the American bird community," according to a press release sent out by the National Center for Public Policy Research, which sponsors Occupy Occupy D.C. The target of today's protest are environmentalists who believe wind energy is a viable substitute to other forms of energy, such as coal or nuclear energy. The National Center for Public Policy Research "estimate that wind turbines kill approximately 100,000 birds every year. The American Bird Conservancy claims the number could be triple that estimate -- affecting the songbird community most of all." That's why the environmentalists' approach is wrong, according to today's protesters. "If I was a bird, I'd be an angry bird right now," executive director David Almasi says in the statement announcing today's protest. "Countless innocent birds that only want to be with their eggs die every year from crashing into wind turbines. The environmentalists who promote wind energy at the expense of the birds are green pigs!" Bonner Cohen, a senior fellow at the think tank, says, "At some point the slaughter of birds and bats by taxpayer-subsidized wind turbines is going to trigger serious legal action. ... If the full force of the Migratory Bird Treaty and the Endangered Species Act were brought to bear on these unsightly killing machines, investors would turn their backs on this artificial industry in a heartbeat."
