Bat's Aren't Cute

As long as we can keep even one photo-shopped polar bear from drowning and slowing their population's rate of growth, the mass slaughter of bats at the hands of windmills is a price well worth paying:

One unintended consequence of the installation of wind turbines has been a massive increase in bat deaths. Bats seem to be drawn to them, and scientists can’t figure out why. But they do know that the rapid decline in our bat population—which is crucial to general insect control—is really bad news.

I don't know why global warming alarmists are so drawn to them, either.

But keep in mind that in one narrow range of policy the global warmers failed to anticipate consequences of their plans to save us. Fancy that.

Oh well. I for one welcome our new insect overlords.
