You left out the fraud of global warming - where our planet is being destroyed in order to save it from a non-existent threat. - AjaxofTelamon

Fraud of global warming!?! Unfortunately, Mother Nature didn't get that memo. Here are several indicators that our planet is, indeed, growing warmer:

There are, of course, many, MANY other indicators, such as shrinking glacial ice mass, population shifts in flora and fauna, earlier and earlier snow cover melts, changes in the jet stream pattern (the polar jet stream keeps shifting northward), melting permafrost, etc., etc., etc.

As for bird kills related to wind turbines as some sorta eco-disaster - please stop. You're simply embarrassing yourself:
