Repeal that part of the protected species law which allows them to be killed

Comment 9th July 2010

Now that the PM has experienced a bat chase (!!), maybe he will have held it in his hands, and found it to be remarkably clean and as warm as we are. Their fur is very smoothly kept, and feels pleasant to the hand. If you were an enthusiast you would love their "funny" faces too, because the technology they embody allows them to see in the dark!!

Bats are protected by law, but uglier cold blooded people are killing them, because it appears the bat protection law allows wind turbines an exception, and terminal damage to their lungs in the vortex wake of the rotating blades is allowable. This must have been because politicians did not care for bats, and were willing to exterminate them in the cause of their money games.

So nasty were these games that they deliberately hugely subsidised such bad ideas as wind turbines thinking that they actually generated electricity economically, when of course they do not, since they require such huge quantites of backup electricity supply, generated mostly by fossil fuel, that CO2 is hardly reduced at all.

And they are hideous too – would the PM want one in Whitehall? Just beside the Cenotaph would do – he would soon complain about the sickly low frequency thumping of the passing blade, coming seismically through the ground, reminding himself meanwhile that the slow rotation of the blades generates no electricity whatsoever, still killing bats and eagles and other raptors too.

Politicians have played with the electricity generation market, subsidising some technologies more than others because of their mistaken beliefs about them. Surely it is time that all complex subsidy of electricity was stopped, thus making the market clearer to everybody, including the media. And then the wind turbines would be exposed for what they are – a blight on us all.

I hope Mr David Cameron now loves bats.
 

Why does this matter?

I hope David Cameron MP now appreciates them.
