Guest Post – The RSPB Sells Out To The Enviroloons
Today’s Guest Post is from @AmbushPredator
A leading conservation group has told Walsall residents that a wind turbine proposed to be built near their homes will not harm birds in the area.
The Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (RSPB) has said the planned turbine next to Rushall Canal is for the greater good.
So, all you bird-lovers who spend millions on donations to the RSPB, how do you feel now?
John Leeson, co-ordinator of Hatherton Residents Against Wind Turbine Group, claimed: “It will be an eyesore because of its proximity to houses.
“Noise is another concern, and we have colonies of herons, Canada geese and breeding birds of prey in the area. None of them would appreciate this device.”
And so you’d think the organisation supposedly dedicated to birds would be right there with you, wouldn’t you?
But no. Birds are their bread and butter, yes indeed. But when it’s a toss up between protecting those birds and presenting the ‘right’ attitude to the Global Warming Bandwagon, well, bring on the bird-mincers!
…the RSPB’s senior conservation planner for the Midlands, Colin Wilkinson, said the turbine should be welcomed as it was unlikely to pose a threat to the conservation status of any birds.
He said: “Any threat has to be weighed against the national imperative to develop green energy sources. I doubt if there’s a strong case in that area in terms of impact on birds.
“A paper in the Nature journal stated that a third to a half of terrestrial species might be committed to extinction unless we can control dangerous levels of climate change, so we have some hard choices to make.
So, there you go.
Only one question: when are you changing your name to the RSPBUITI (Royal Society For Protection Of Birds Unless It’s Too Inconvenient)..?
