    It’s good that you’d like to see more trees. But are you protesting the massive destruction of boreal forests in Alberta to extract tar sand oil? Or would that make you seem like intelligent people who don’t ignore the evidence for global warming?

    I’m pointing out an ideologically inconsistent theme on your website. You claim to be against the destruction of nature but constantly post stories that ignore man-made CO2’s impact (just because it’s an invisible gas and less palpable as a threat overnight).

    Why not be against wind turbines for morally consistent reasons? Man is destroying nature on many fronts, not just the limited ones that match conservative ideology.

      I’m not sure we follow any conservative ideology. All we state here is that if those who believe that CO2 produced by emissions from anthropogenic sources constitutes an existential threat to humanity and the planet, wind turbines fail on all fronts and the planting of trees do a better job. I could place pictures from Vermont showing ridgeline destruction on par with mountaintop coal mining. The results are in when it comes to an honest audit of the performance of wind turbines , the required back-up needed and how much CO2 is mitigated. It shows IWT’s fail miserably and the money wasted that’s diverted away from useful research into more workable technologies that would have a more tangible and measurable reduction in CO2.
      As for the Oilsands , approx 2% of the target area is consistent with all those pictures showing the surface extraction of the oil sands. There are pictures , lesser known and published , that show site reclamation of the Boreal ecosystem after the oil extraction ( or bitumen clean-up depending on your point of view) has been completed. IWT projects have no such commitments placed upon them.

        I agree with what you just wrote but you shifted the topic. I’ve seen a number of climate denial tomes on this site, e.g. “UPDATED LIST OF THINGS CAUSED BY GLOBAL WARMING” (sarcastic waste of time). I think that whole snarky angle should be dropped because it gives the turbine-pushers ammo to claim you’re not science-minded enough to understand the “benefits” of wind turbines.
