US Presidents Donald Trump spoke to a group of conservative youth about wind energy. They would ”not have studied it better than anyone.”
In a speech, Saturday to Trump supporter’s organization, Training Point USA, criticized the Trump Green New Deal, turned to accelerate bond mills. This is a proposal by the left-leaning Democrats to tackle climate change and inequality in the United States.
Trump argued that windmills were ”noisy” and ”kill the birds,” and they criticized the fact that many were built outside of America because they repeated they’re long-suffering for a renewable energy member.
”I never understood wind. You know, I know windmills very much. I’ve studied it better than anybody I know. It’s very expensive. They’re made in China and Germany mostly-very few made here, almost none, ” he said.
Trump also criticized the manufacturing process of the wind turbines as creating ”fumes”:
”But they’re manufactured tremendous-if you’re into this tremendous fumes. Gases are spewing into the atmosphere. You know we have a world, right? So the world is tiny compared to the universe. So tremendous, Tremendous amount of fumes and everything. You talk about the carbon footprint-fumes are spewing into the air. Right? Spewing. Whether it’s in China, Germany, It’s going into the air. It’s our air, everything-right?”
The American Wind Energy Association found that when carbon emissions originate from wind-driven construction so must wind power projects return their carbon maps within six months of starting their process.
A gas called sulfur hexafluoride, or SF6, is often used in projects like wind turbines to stop electrical accidents and fires. Although gas is ”the most powerful greenhouse gas known to humanity,” Its concentration in the environments is very low.
Most of Trump’s lectures on the wind turbine focused on his impact on birds.” They said they kill the birds.” he said. ”You want to see the bird’s graveyard? You should go now to take a look at the bird cemetery under the windmill you will see far more birds in your life.
”You know, in California, they were killing the bald eagle. If you shoot a bald eagle, they want to put you in jail for 10 years. A windmill will kill many bald eagles. It’s true.”
Trump later said of bald eagles:” If you killed one, they put you in jail. That’s fine. but why is it OK to waste the bird population on these windmills? and that’s what they are doing.”
Then one audience responded ”Because they were stupid,” according to the official White House transcript.
Trump then laughed and said: This is a conservative group, Dan. No, but it’s true. Am I right?”
Trump said he thought the aviation industry was fine and he liked it in every way.
Trump said he believed the windmill was ”OK in industrial areas” and that he liked ”every kind of energy.”
But he said one of his problems was his presentation, he said. ” I’ve seen the most beautiful field, farms, fields-most gorgeous things you’ve ever seen, and you have these ugly things going up,”
Trump’s complaints also included the fact that different companies do not that mean they will not be matched in all appearance and ”10 years after the idea, they look like hell.’‘
Although Trump called himself an environmental expert during the speech. But it has repeatedly criticized renewable energy forms and taken actions that could be considered harmful to the environment, including the extraction of the United States from the climates agreement.
About wind energy, Trump has previously made false claims that wind farms cause cancer.
He actively but unsuccessfully campaigned against the construction of a wind farm near his golf course in Scotland, even running TV ads about the topic.
