How much does your electricity really cost?

Weird, here new wind farms are built without government subsidy. Is this some very old graph?

I am not huge fan of wind power myself though - I don't think it can resolve energy issue, it is too unreliable in large scale. Also turbines themselves are an eyesore and risk for the birds.

 

Not trying to be argumentative, but are these new wind farms  you are referring to being given federal, state, local tax breaks?

We are a very suburban state and we now have deer (in huge amounts), coyotes (I can sit in my condo living room and listen to them howl and cry to each other at sunset and listen to them tearing a neighborhood cat to pieces at night), bears, bobcats, fishercats, turkeys, beaver, osprey, hawks, bald eagles, salmon, shad, etc. How much diversity is diversity? From what you say, we'll never get "proper" diversity back, so why bother trying for your definition?

Maybe the coyotes are trying to kill your neighbours cat, because there are not enough for them to eat in the wilderness anymore, hm?
'My' definition of biodiversity (actually, the scientific one) is important because once you trigger massive species loss, you risk eliminating some 'keystone species' which are crucial on upkeeping the ecosystem and them being gone will trigger further extinctions. Often we don't even realize which species are those, until afterwards. Some populous insect species for example serve double role in the ecosystem: on the one hand they pollinate plants, on the other they are food for the insectivores. Lose them, you lose those plants, and the songbirds which were food for the hawks, and so on...

The West needs to devote its entire GDP and accumulated resources to return to a pre-white occupied/ influenced condition.

Nobody's demanding that, but hey, lets retort to strawman arguments when we no longer have real ones, right?

You clearly don't realize that your complaints about new ecological diversities imply just this. Part of the cognitive dissonance in the climate and environmental movement.

Landfill begins burying non-recyclable Wind Turbine Blades

 

 

Waste management experts estimate they’ll take hundreds of years to biodegrade

 

 

wind-energy2342.jpg
Hundreds of giant windmill blades are being shipped to a landfill in Wyoming to be buried because they simply can’t be recycled.Local media reports several wind farms in the state are sending over 900 un-reusable blades to the Casper Regional Landfill to be buried.

 

While nearly 90 percent of old or decommissioned wind turbines, like the motor housing, can be refurbished or at least crushed, fiberglass windmill blades present a problem due to their size and strength.

“Our crushing equipment is not big enough to crush them,” a landfill representative told NPR.

Prior to burying the cumbersome, sometimes nearly 300-foot long blades, the landfill has to cut them up into smaller pieces onsite and stack them in order to save space during transportation.

To make matters worse, the blades aren’t exactly compostable. The Casper Sold Waste Manager tells Wyoming News Now they’ll take hundreds of years to biodegrade.

“So Casper happens to be, I think it is, the biggest landfill facility in the state of Wyoming. These blades are really big, and they take up a lot of airspace, and our unlined area is very, very large, and it’s going to last hundreds of years.”

As if that’s not bad enough, NPR reports researchers estimate the US will soon have to grapple with over 720,000 tons of blades over the next 20 years, “a figure that doesn’t include newer, taller higher-capacity versions.”

So much for saving the environment.

The answer is not taking it 500 miles from a qualified disposal facility in the midwestern plains.

The fiber glass in boats is often recyclable. It is also far easier to chop and crush.

In a few years, Greta will have turned into a kind of comic-book character only to be used ironically.  :D

 

Swedish teenager’s face can be seen scowling disapprovingly in cafeterias and coffee corners across the land, in a bid to get Israelis to reduce usage of disposables.

Well, it could be said that Australia is mainly a desert.

They are saying many are deliberately set.  So maybe some demographic problem.

Looks like Greta has found another boat for her to sail back across the Atlantic. It's kinda hilarious that there's no way she's ever gonna be able to enter any kind of conventional airplane in the forseeable future. ^_^

Maybe the Koalas found out that lighting up Eucalyptus powered farts can propel them up to the tree tops.

At last, someone stepped up and said clearly what they think.
 

"...These are times that call for us to do those things that we believe in, and to march, and not just to march, cause that's important to show solidarity, but then to do those things such as voter registration, get people out to vote, so that we can have people here who are truly committed to human rights, environmental rights -- climate change...believe in climate change as though it's a religion, it's not a science-- and all the things that need to be done, and there is a lot," Sen. Hirono told the crowd.
