Trump claims he’s seen piles of dead bald eagles underneath windmills: ‘You see them all over the place’
David Edwards
14 May 2019 at 16:08 ET

President Donald Trump on Tuesday claimed that he had seen dead bald eagles “all over the place” because of energy-producing windmills.

“You are under assault,” Trump told a group of natural gas workers in Connecticut. “And now they talk about the Green New Deal. The Green New Deal. Everybody go home, you just lost your Jobs. The Green New Deal, that’s a hoax like the hoax I just went through.”

“Under that deal, everybody in this room gets fired,” he continued. “All of the thousands of guys and women standing in these buildings get fired, they go because under the Green New Deal, they don’t like clean, beautiful natural gas. They don’t like anything.”


Trump noted that progressive politicians “sort of like wind even though it kills all the birds.”

“You want to see a bird cemetery? Go under a windmill sometime,” the president ranted. “You will see the saddest, you got every type of bird. You know, in California you go to jail for five years if you kill a bald eagle. You go under a windmill, you see them all over the place. Not a good situation.”

“But that’s what they were counting on, wind. When the wind doesn’t blow, you don’t watch television that night,” Trump added.

I'll bet the count is actually zero.

I have been at the base of many a wind turbine and I have never seen a single dead bird of any kind.

9. He's still pissed about those Scottish wind turbines

The ones that blocked the off shore view from his golf course in Scotland.

A line from the Venture Bros: The first man to turn a grudge into a career.

For the record: Far more birds are killed by feral and pet cats than wind turbines. Well, maybe not eagles.

10. It's clear he will lie about absolutely anything.

The man has never set foot within 100 yards of the base of a Wind Turbine (I say 100 yards, because it's possible AF1 did a low pass over a windfarm...who knows?) so he is just making shit up, just like he always does.

"I've talked to generals who say Robert E. Lee is their favorite General"

yeah...sure ya did, pal.

"I have 20 club championships to my credit"

Yeah? And if my grandmother had wheels she'd be a fucking Studebaker.

He's a horse ass and a pathological liar and anyone that believes a single word he spews is too fucking stupid to breath without instructions.

15. Living in Kansas we have a couple wind generators........

Piles of dead Eagles or even piles of dead birds under a wind tubine would be big news and be on our local stations. I have NEVER seen one story about any of the BS Trump is spewing.

I have read about the thousands of birds killed by guy wires on a radio or TV antenna which are invisible at night.

17. A lot of Trumpistas live out in the country where the wind turbines are.

The power companies that operate them lease or get easements for the land they're erected on from farmers. I wonder if Trump-supporting farmers have found piles of dead eagles or other birds below the wind turbines on their land. If not, I wonder if they wonder why their wind turbines don't have piles of dead birds below them, and so maybe Dear Leader is, uh, mistaken?

yeah, that's about right...the threat of climate change is about as much of a hoax as the involvement of the Russians in the 2016 presidential election...so I can't fault him there.

19. to be fair, wind turbines do kill birds

something on the order of 250,000 to 600,000 per year or so if I'm reading this chart correctly in this Wikipedia article, based on a "preliminary study" of causes of avian mortality in the U.S. conducted by B. Sovacool...and holy shit, cats are just brutal!

What priority does he place on that problem?

25. I don't know if you read the same Audubon Society article as I did.

But there has been a slight dip in Bald Eagle populations. Apparently every time a professional football player takes a knee during the National Anthem, a Bald Eagle drops dead from the sky. You don't want to know what happens when an entire team takes a knee.
So there's a problem, not from windmills, but from the NFL.

Peace,
Noodleboy.

28. Then I'm sure he will want to get rid of cell phone towers.

Birds do fly into things. I get bird strikes on the windows of my house frequently. It's a common thing out in the country. Birds fly into tall buildings, too, at night or in foggy weather, especially when migrating. And birds hit cellphone towers under the same conditions.

I suspect more birds are killed by hitting the bazillion cell towers that now exist than by the wind turbines. But I don't hear calls for removing them or not erecting more.
