President Donald Trump once again aired his war on windmills last weekend when he claimed that technology and among some other things that are killing the bald eagles and threatening the values of the houses near the mills.
During a gathering of the young conservatives on the weekend at West Palm Beach, Florida, “You know, I know windmills very much. I’ve studied it better than anybody I know. It’s costly. They’re made in China and Germany mostly — very few made here, almost none. But they’re manufactured tremendous — if you’re into this — tremendous fumes. Gases are spewing into the atmosphere. You know we have a world. So, the world is tiny compared to the universe,” the President said at the Turning Point USA conference.
“You talk about the carbon footprint — fumes are spewing into the air. Right? Spewing. Whether it’s in China, Germany, it’s going into the air. It’s our air, their air, everything — right?”
He bombasts the Democrats again for their support of his least favorite energy production, the windmills, and said that some countries create air pollution for the entire planet.
It has been known by many that he has been complaining about the windmills since the start of his presidency and even slamming the technology in the G7 conference, Republican fundraising dinner, and so to speak.
He talks about windmill noise creating cancer. Although there have been no scientific studies that claimed it would prove any human health risk. His hate for technology started even before he became the President. He battled for a year regarding the construction of wind turbines near his property in Scotland.
Over the weekend, he said that these turbines are slashing the values of the homes near those turbines.
The President said, “So they make these things and then they put them up. And if you own a house within a vision of some of these monsters, your house is worth 50% of the price,” and he added, “They’re noisy. They kill the birds. You want to see a bird graveyard? You go. Take a look. A bird graveyard goes under a windmill someday. You’ll see more birds than you’ve ever seen in your life.”
He also claimed that these turbines are killing many bald eagles in Californian, “You know, in California, they were killing the bald eagle. If you shoot a bald eagle, they want to put you in jail for 10 years. A windmill will kill many bald eagles. It’s true,”
Furthermore, he exclaimed, “And you know what? After a certain number, they make you turn the windmill off. That’s true, by the way. This is — they make you turn it off after you — and yet, if you killed one, they put you in jail. That’s OK. But why is it OK for these windmills to destroy the bird population? And that’s what they’re doing.”
The American Bird Conservancy said that its true wind turbines kill birds, but when it comes to the eagle, the past administration increased its population, which can be killed or injured by these turbines.
