If windmills aren’t stopped soon enough, several species of bats may be the first extinctions due to man’s fears of global warming.

Bats are capable enough to miss the blades, but as they dart past, the extreme air pressure changes near the blades blast the bats lungs. They shortly thereafter succumb by drowning as their lungs fill will fluid.

For the record, I’ll take people over bats any day, but windmills are bad for us all.

The rampant slaughter of birds and bats by wind turbines is just another inconvenient truth for the wind cult. In this peer reviewed scientific paper, the scale of the destruction was spelled out loud and clear: wind turbines are now the leading cause of bat mortality.

Abstract

  1. Despite conservation concerns for many species of bats, factors causing mortality in bats have not been reviewed since 1970. Here, we review and qualitatively describe trends in the occurrence and apparent causes of multiple mortality events (MMEs) in bats around the world.
  2. We compiled a database of MMEs, defined as cases in which ≥ 10 dead bats were counted or estimated at a specific location within a maximum timescale of a year, and more typically within a…
