the same one who looked DIRECTLY into the sun during a solar eclipse when every human being knows one shouldn't.
or the president who calls himself the stable genius...
or "windmills cause cancer"
or "new 'environment friendly' lightbulbs can cause cancer '
or "“If we didn't remove incredibly powerful fire-retardant asbestos & replace it with junk that doesn't work, the World Trade Center would never have burned down,”
should i go on? SERIOUSLY!!! how can you guys NOT SEE he's delusional!
Looking at the solar eclipse for a second won't hurt you. It's prolonged exposure that causes retinal burns.
As for energy-saving light bulbs, they DO actually cause cancer according to scientists.
Fears have been reignited about the safety of energy saving light bulbs after a group of scientists warned that they contain cancer causing chemicals.www.telegraph.co.uk
And windmills, which are supposed to be environmentally-friendly, kill an estimated 140,000 to 328,000 birds each year.
So much for helping mother nature...
I don't know about asbestos. I'm not engineering-savvy, but it wouldn't be the first Trump was mocked only to be proven right later.
I'm not getting into the pro vs. anti Trump argument. Just want to say that compact fluorescent lightbulbs are apparently toxic, but there is a non-toxic environmentally-friendly alternative to regular lightbulbs: LED bulbs.
As for windmills, I haven't heard that they cause cancer, but apparently, they do cause major discomfort and illness in people who live close to them. And, yes, they are harmful to birds as well. However, they are a relatively clean source of energy, so they should be used far from inhabited areas and bird migration routes.
P.S. Just want to clarify regarding the wind turbines making people feel ill: it's not scientifically proven...just that quite a few people living near them report feeling sick.
Well, wind turbines kill thousands of birds each year and birds are important for the ecosystem and in plant reproduction which defeats the purpose if you ask me,
Most energy-efficient solutions aimed at saving the environment are actually harming it.
We are wasting valuable money pursuing stupid clean energy solutions when there's little evidence to suggest humans are responsible for climate change.
As opposed to famously bird friendly burning of coal and fossil fuels?

Sadly, so-called green energy sources themselves rely on fossil fuel...

Yep, I've been meaning to watch this and will soon. I've heard a lot of criticism of the factual accuracy of the documentary from very well-respected folks in the environmental movement as well as the fact that it almost entirely relies on oil industry talking points. So, I'll wait to see it before judging. However, regardless of how much reliance green energy has on fossil fuels, it is not of the same level as actually having fossil fuels actually *be* the entire basis of energy consumption.
Well...I'm always skeptical of anything in the media, no matter what "side" it seems to be on. This is one point of view. I've also looked into the other side's point of view.
As far as this documentary / point of view is concerned, I'm not surprised that those in the environmental movement are opposing it. The filmmaker is a self-proclaimed "tree-hugger" (not pro-fossil fuel) who says environmental organizations have sold themselves out to corporations. As for "green" energy...it's not that they are somewhat relying on fossil fuels...it's that they apparently use more fossil fuels and have a bigger impact on the environment than if we just burned fossil fuels in the first place.
How true are those claims made in the documentary? Those interested can try to fact check. But, on the surface, they do seem logical.
