Oh, I see.
I might have brought it up. But
not having to do with me, just
the wind is a very deceiving thing.
First of all,
we don’t make the windmills
in the United States. They’re made
in Germany and Japan. They’re made
out of massive amounts of steel, which goes
into the atmosphere, whether it’s in
or not, it goes
into the atmosphere.
The windmills kill birds
and the windmills need . . .
for the most part they don’t work.
I don’t think they work
at all . . .
and that bothers me,
and they kill all the birds.
You go to a windmill, you know
they have the, what is it?
The golden eagle?
And they’re like,
if you shoot a golden eagle, they go to jail
for five years
and yet they kill them by,
they actually have to get permits
that they’re only allowed to kill 30
in one year.
The windmills are devastating to the bird population, O.K? . . .
So, if I talk negatively,
I’ve been saying the same thing
for years about you know,
the wind industry . . .
Some environmentalists agree with me
because of all of the things
I just said,
including the birds,
and some don’t.
But it’s hard to explain.
