According to the Edmonton Journal 500 ducks died after landing in a toxic tailing pond at the Syncrude oilsands project in northern Alberta.
“As the week wore on and photos of oily ducks hit front pages and newscasts, Stelmach tried to downplay the issue with what he called perspective.
“It’s well known that on an annual basis, the minimum number of birds killed by wind turbines is around 30,000 (in the United States),” he said Thursday”. Full story at the Journal
He has a point. Why do 500 ducks killed by the oil industry cause such an outrage and the death of thousands of birds and bats killed by wind turbines have no impact on the public.
Is it because the ducks were killed by the oil industry?
If the environmentalists are outraged over the duck kill they should be outraged over the thousands of birds and bats killed by wind turbines.
If the oilsands are to be fined for the ducks killed then the wind industry should be fined for every bird and bat killed. Sounds fair to me.
I hate to see any animal hurt or suffer and those that hurt animals should be penalized.
People are at risk from both industries just like the birds. But you never hear or read about the people affected. Have people become less important than animals? The answer according to the UN is yes. They want to see a 4 billion reduction in the number of people on the earth. That is sustainability to the elites. Read Agenda 21
People downstream of the oilsands are suffering health problems. When a doctor notified Health Canada he was told there was no problem and to shut up. The doctor couldn’t believe that Health Canada didn’t launch an investigation.
People living near wind turbines also suffer health problems. They are described both by the govt, and the industry as Nibmys and complainers. They are neither. They cannot believe no one has ordered a health study.
In both cases the govt. has crawled into bed with industry. It’s ironic that even though they are in bed together, it is the public that is getting F@#&ed in both cases.
Health Canada refuses to do a health study on the oilsands or the wind turbnes.

People fighting wind farms need your support. Give it to them
You may be fighting a wind farm in the future.
Al Gore is lying to you. David Suzuki is lying to you. Any govt. pushing wind farms is lying to you. Global warming is a fraud. You have been told the truth. Don’t like it. Tough. Read Agenda 21
