If Greens Have Their Way, We Won’t Have An Environment

Fear of a harmless trace gas has driven the environmental movement completely insane.

Birds going up in smoke at Ivanpah solar project

A new report from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has labeled BrightSource Energy’s Ivanpah project a “mega-trap” for insects and birds that may get singed or in some cases, burned alive flying through the intense solar radiation reflecting off the thousands of mirrors surrounding three solar towers at the plant in eastern San Bernardino County.

The Center for Biological Diversity posted the report to the California Energy Commission website on Monday as part of its testimony opposing BrightSource’s 500-megawatt Palen project, located east of the Coachella Valley, which would use similar technology — soaring solar towers surrounded by thousands of reflecting mirrors.

    This solar mirror/tower thing is loved by big money/big bankers because it is very expensive and controlled entirely by them unlike say, solar panels on a roof owned by a citizen.

      The flip side is that all those tax credits and other crap go to wealthier people who get the benefit all to themselves. Why should I pay more taxes than someone who will get the benefit of solar panels or wind power for themselves for the next 20 to 30 years? Last I checked, those aren’t cheap either. ALL of those subsidies need to go away.

    Correction, if Greens Have Their Way, We Won’t Have A “WE”!

    My nightmare is some idiotic green scientist figures out how to do an automatic sequestering of CO2.

    It is not quite as crazy as it sounds. Back in the late 1960s there was a chemical by the trade name of Vandride. It was a liquid. Some how the company I worked for managed to inadvertently crystallize the stuff. The crystals managed to seed all the vandride world wide and now the stuff is no longer liquid but a crystalline solid.

    Get rid if CO2 and it is bye bye most life forms on the earth.

    Where’s the evidence? Up in smoke.

    …a “mega-trap” for insects and birds that may get singed or in some cases, burned alive flying through the intense solar radiation reflecting off the thousands of mirrors…

    Just call them “tanning parlors”.

    I have said this before, but it is worth repeating. If they put wind turbines around the solar plant, the birds could be chopped and crispy fried. This has got to be a fast food opportunity for someone …

    It is also killing monarch butterflies!
    A minor point is that at the desertsun link it says that the solar hell furnace is also killing monarch butterflies. The monarch butterfly is kind of like the holy cow of India, it’s the sacred insect, like the bald eagle of insects, and you definitely don’t want to ever hurt any of them. I’m in CA and I see them all over the place, so they’re certainly not going extinct, but it’s ironic that the greenies make such a major deal about how climate change is endangering the monarch, but it is their own solar plant that is killing the monarch. http://www.scientificamerican.com/article/climate-change-may-disrupt-monarch-butterfly-migration/
