    [W:190] What is it with Trump and windmills?

    OK, first Dr. Trump claims that windmills cause cancer, now he claims to have seen piles of dead bald eagles underneath them:

    “You want to see a bird cemetery? Go under a windmill sometime,” the president ranted. “You will see the saddest, you got every type of bird. You know, in California you go to jail for five years if you kill a bald eagle. You go under a windmill, you see them all over the place. Not a good situation.”
    Link to story is here:Trump claims he’s seen piles of dead bald eagles underneath windmills: ‘You see them all over the place’


    And before you all get pissed off about the source, the video of him saying this is also at the link.

    Windmills are taking a huge toll on birds. Funny how so few on the Earth-centric left seem to care.

    He also has seen Muslims dancing as the towers fell. Add delusional to the long list of mental incapacities of DJT.

    Cell phone towers kill many more birds than windmills. I wonder if Trump will go on a rampage about those? Or maybe about cats?

    They aren't called bird quisinarts for nothing.

    A Google search produces results saying around 300,000 birds a year die from windmills. This is lower than those that die from cell/radio towers.

    I don't see anything wrong with trying to reduce those deaths

    Bald eagles...all over the place.

    Maybe its the cancer that is killing them...

    Wind turbines kill fewer birds than do cats, cell towers

    Wind turbines kill far fewer birds in North America than do cats or collisions with cell towers, says a study out Monday.

    As wind power expands in the United States, critics often blame giant turbine blades for bird deaths. What's billed as the most comprehensive analysis ever of these fatalities says birds face far greater threats.
    More studies: Wind farms are hardly the bird slayers they're made out to be. Here's why
