Why is Donald Trump so obsessed with wind turbines killing birds?

Donald Trump delivered on a longstanding campaign promise Thursday by withdrawing the United States from the Paris Climate Accord, an announcement that, speaking without hyperbole, really did reverberate throughout the planet.

The main goal of the Paris Climate Accord is to reduce global emissions to ameliorate the human impact on our planet’s climate. It was agreed upon byevery other country on Earth save two. There weremany reasons given for Trump’s landmark decision. There are people who believe that the U.S. is unfairly impacted by the agreement. There are doubts about the efficacy of reducing carbon emissions. Some think it simply shows that America won’t kowtow to the world order.

But maybe the president had an ulterior motive? It’s not always fair to consider Donald Trump’s tweets as the tea leaves to his mind, but the man does seem to have a strong dislike for wind energy.

Why? Because they kill birds.

In August 2012, he bashed wind turbines for killing thousands of birds.

He was also upset not just about the death of birds, but how wind farms alter their migratory patterns.

A year later, a study was taken by the Canadian Free Press and extrapolated to claim turbines caused the death of 13 million bird each year in the U.S. Trump began to trumpet that number (as well as the higher end of the estimate, 39 million).

It’s worth noting that the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service puts the number at 174,000 annually. Trump did not relent.

Interesting, that last tweet was sent from Scotland, where Trump led a campaign to stop a wind farm, not because of bird deaths but because he believed them to be unsightly.

Trump also claims that wind turbines are worse for birds the fossil fuels.

Although estimates vary, coal is by far the biggest contributor to bird deathswhen factoring in the effects of climate change, according to U.S. News and World Report.

It’s a drum Trump beat during the 2016 campaign as well.

The wind kills all your birds,” he saidat a rally in August 2016. “All your birds, killed. You know, the environmentalists never talk about that.

So… does Donald Trump just love birds?

Multiple White House officials did not respond to a query as to whether the president is an avian enthusiast.

But… probably not. Because it should be noted that the singlelargestcause of death in birds, responsible for the deaths of billionsevery year, is cats. And for what it’s worth, Trump has never tweeted any dissatisfaction with them

Taylor Swift & Katy Perry Put Aside Their Bad Blood To Support The Reform Of THIS Law!

BITCH

Recently, the two divas — along with artists including Paul McCartney, Kings Of Leon, Steven Tyler, and Lionel Richie –have signed a petition urging Congress to reform the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA), which was signed into law by Bill Clinton in 1998.

The petition — organized by music manager Irving Azoff — believes that tech companies have used the law to make money while singers and songwriters get zilch.

“It has allowed major tech companies to grow and generate huge profits by creating ease of use for consumers to carry almost every recorded song in history in their pocket via a smartphone, while songwriters’ and artists’ earnings continue to diminish Music consumption has skyrocketed, but the monies generated by individual writers and artists for that consumption has plummeted The growth and support of technology companies should not be at the expense of artists and songwriters.”

He does have a valid point!

On the flip side, The Internet Association — a group that represents companies such as Netflix and Facebook — asserts that DMCA is working perfectly fine!

“The Digital Millennium Copyright Act creates safe harbors for Internet platforms by ensuring they will not be liable for what their users do, so long as the platforms act responsibly These smart laws allow people to post content that they have created on platformssuch as videos, reviews, pictures, and text. In essence, this is what makes the Internet great.”

YouTube defended their practice, believing their current model benefits everyone.

“The overwhelming majority of labels and publishers have licensing agreements in place with YouTube to leave fan videos up on the platform and earn revenue from them Today the revenue from fan uploaded content accounts for roughly 50 percent of the music industry’s YouTube revenue. Any assertion that this content is largely unlicensed is false.”

Only time will tell whether Congress will reform the law or not!

‘Take some basic economics’: Bernie explains his ‘ridiculous’ vision of banking

You have to constantly double-check the verification symbol on @BernieSanders’ account to ensure that tweets like this aren’t being made by a parody account. But rest assured, this one is genuinely Bernie.

A presidential candidate in a major party says banking shouldn’t be about making money. This dangerous, anti-capitalist comment should remove him from the nomination process and presidential race. Instead, it further fires up his sycophantic supporters.

Fortunately, many understand the economy well enough to know that such a proposal is certifiably insane.

Here’s an idea:

Great idea! Then the Berniecould show us all how business is conducted without making any of that evil money.

Facebook’s ‘Free’ Internet Service Blocked In India

India introduced rules on Monday to prevent Internet service providers from having different pricing policies for accessing different parts of the Web, in a setback to Facebook Inc’s plan to roll out a pared-back free Internet service to the masses.

The new rules came after a two-month long consultation process that saw Facebook (FB.O) launching a big advertisement campaign in support of its Free Basics program, which runs in more than 35 developing countries.

The program offers pared-down Internet services on mobile phones, along with access to the company’s own social network and messaging services, without charge.

The service, earlier known as internet.org, has also run into trouble in other countries that have accused Facebook of infringing the principle of net neutrality – the concept that all websites and data on the Internet are treated equally.

Critics and Internet activists argue that allowing access to a select few apps and Web services for free would put small content providers and start-ups that don’t participate at a disadvantage.

“While disappointed with the outcome, we will continue our efforts to eliminate barriers and give the unconnected an easier path to the Internet and the opportunities it brings,” Facebook said in an emailed statement.

Everyone in the world should have access to the internet. That's why we launched Internet.org with so many different…

Posted by Mark Zuckerberg on Monday, February 8, 2016

On Monday, the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI), which had suspended the free Facebook service pending a policy decision, said Internet service providers would not be allowed to discriminate on pricing for different Web services.

“Essentially everything on the Internet is agnostic in the sense that it cannot be priced differently,” TRAI chairman Ram Sevak Sharma said at a news conference.

Although the new rules will also have implications for plans by Indian telecom operators to make money from rapidly surging Web traffic through differential pricing, Facebook’s campaign turned the spotlight on the social networking giant.

Free Basics is part Facebook’s ambition to expand in its largest market outside the United States. Only 252 million out of India’s 1.3 billion people have Internet access.

“We are delighted by the regulator’s recognition of the irreversible damage that stands to be done to the open Internet by allowing differential pricing,” said Mishi Choudhary, a New York-based lawyer who led an online campaign against Facebook.

Facebook shares were down 2.7 percent at $101.30 in early trading on the Nasdaq amid broad weakness in U.S. markets.
