    Windmills stopped at night after bat death

    In addition to being screwed when the wind doesn't blow, you're SOL as soon as one lefty constituency collides with another.

    At least in China, human beings turn off your power at night whether you want it turned off or not.

    Windmills stopped at night after bat death - BostonHerald.com

    LILLY, Pa. — Thirty-five windmills at a western Pennsylvania wind farm have been silenced at night since a bat that belongs to an endangered species was found dead under one of the turbines.

    The Tribune-Democrat of Johnstown is reporting the farm shut down the windmills overnight after the Indiana bat was found Sept. 26.

    The farm in question was built by Gamesa Energy USA and covers parts of Portage, Washington, and Cresson Townships in Cambria County, and part of Blair County, about 60 miles east of Pittsburgh

    Bat's fly at night. Who would have ever guessed that?

    Geenies putting the kibosh on their own pet technology. They can't be consistant on policy because they have no consistant political ideology.

    Time to go throw some endangered species onto the freeway. /sarcasm

    I agree, lets stop the windmills, stripping the top off of a mountain to get the coal and dumping it in a valley certainly wouldn't harm any animals.

    I wonder how many people would be willing to shutdown a major freeway because of a dead animal.

    You don't think endangered species laws should be enforced?

    See, the mistake you're making is thinking that "greenies" are one singular group. I could just as easily point out that some "righties" are outright white supremacists but others think black people should be allowed to stay in the country. Hahahah, righties, so ideologically inconsistent!

    Using this logic (as identified in the OP) we need to stop driving any vehicles ... I saw a possum get run over the other night by a car and it was just horrible!
    “I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    This is why no one wants to invest in green scams.

    Beats all the other scams we invest in. At least this one gets us clean power. Better that than, say, another $300 million fighter plane built for a war that will never be fought.
