Tis a bad year for creepy crawlies not helped by a mild winter but the decimation of the bird species by the wind turbines probably has done irrepairable damage which all the experts wont accept until it is too late. Nature operates best in balance. Man interferes at his peril! Many bats thrive on an insect diet. A single bat can eat up to 1,200 mosquito-sized insects every hour, and each bat usually eats 6,000 to 8,000 insects each night. Wind turbines kill a rather staggering 600,000 to 900,000 bats every year. Do the sums! Of course the Green Blob will blame it on Climate Change and in that they are partially correct. Mild winters always result in a balloon of insect life. Climate changes year upon year in the same cyclable way that it has for millenium. That is why in the past we have had good and bad tick years. Some years the Cleggs are an absolute nightmare. Nowadays one Clegg defies the variation and has been a nightmare for the last three years! However that does not suggest the IPCC graph of continuing Change of Climate. It just mean life goes on! What it does question is whether ‘ALUC’ is a more serious concern. Anthropogenic Law of Unintended Consequences. Wind farms were built to provide fossil fuel free energy(?) but kill bats whose demise destroys the ecological food chain!

Quote of the Decade
"The trouble with wind farms is that they have a very large spatial footprint for a piddling little bit of electricity. You would need 8oo turbines to produce the output of a coal-fired power station."
