    Imo, our POTUS caring about wild life is indeed quite admirable rather than deplorable.

    American wind farms kill on average approximately one thousand birds every day.

    Unfortunately, KF, you're not gonna get a whole lot of agreement on this one. Should have gone with DJT's "Windmills cause cancer" story, or better yet: Trump's lawyers':

    And, what they rarely tell you is buildings and power lines kill more birds than turbines. Weaponizing nature to oppose something is truly disgusting and despicable, and its what has happened every time someone says ' windmills kill birds." Sure they do. Trumps towers have killed more.

    Criminy....just how many towers does he have?
    (I'm skeptical of the claim because there are so many many turbines.)

    A question for all....
    How should we generate electricity?
    - Nuclear power is unacceptably dangerous.
    - Dams kill trees & flood land. There was a thread recently
    wherein a leftie decried them for their high carbon footprint.
    No joke.
    - Can't burn coal. It's dirty & emits CO2.
    - Natural gas & oil emit CO2.
    - Solar doesn't work every at every time.
    - Wave energy won't work for N Dakota.

    Try responding to the thing actually said some time. It won't hurt, I promise.

    I think i used windmills cause cancer as Trump's dumbism of the week a couple of weeks back. New dumbest dumbisms are so frequent I admit it's hard to keep track.

    No, you did your usual thing where you post vaguely insulting non sequiturs that have nothing to do with anything anyone else was discussing. Seriously, you should work on that. It's tiresome. It's not as bad as those with Socialism tourettes, but it's not much better.

    See? You did it again. Here's a tip, try reading the first post in a thread to find out what the thread is about, then when you post, post something related to that. Then do the same thing when you reply through the rest of the thread. Really, it's not hard. I have faith in you. You can do it!

    See? Like here where you hit "reply" then started talking about "personal, ad hominem insults"? See, no one was talking about ad hominems, nor were they relevant to the post you were replying to, so that is what we call "irrelevant" and a "non sequitur".

    Now, I know that sometimes people use non sequiturs for comedic effect on TV, but they only work in highly specific situations, and only when they're unexpected. Just spraying them out at random in response to everything might seem just like the funny people on TV, but it really isn't, and you should probably leave them to the professionals.

    I did and you couldn't wait to take a dig at Trump without checking the facts. So he's not a silver-tongued politician, in this case the windmills were and still are killing birds at an alarming rate. As a matter of fact, California tree-huggers forced the state to shut down some of the windmills a couple of years ago for just this reason. Your turn...

    What "facts"? He claimed there are "piles of bald eagles". That's a LIE. I didn't claim that no bird was ever harmed by windmills, you're having an imaginary argument with me about stuff I never said.

    Again, read what people actually say, then try to respond to that.

    Buildings kill more birs than turbines. Trump Tower is a building. Statistically it has killed more birds than wind turbines. As has the Empire State Building and Sears Tower. For birds, they are more lethal than turbines.

    One building killed more birds than all wind turbines?
    If it killed pigeons, we need more buildings.
