My most successful red-pilling experiences are all around asking green-oriented liberals why they don't push for nuclear power. It's literally the solution they're looking for but their corporate propaganda keeps their eyes off of it and gives them a reason to dislike it.

Don't forget to point out to them that their windmill farms and their solar farm installations, quite literally, include cutting down mass amounts of forests and fields/animal habitats! It's fun

And windmill blades go into landfills.

Some of those things are huge enough that you'd think there would be a market for popping the end caps off of them to use as rural storage containers, similar to shipping crates. I see them going down the high way sometimes taking up two lanes. Appear to be a one piece shell fiberglass except the endcaps.

wtf could you store in them? the dimensions aren't at all conducive for storing anything.

Best case scenario is you cut them up and use them as shingles.

This is the biggest of the pro/con things. Many conversations I've had with "green, renewable energy" people. You never hear about the actual impact and time it takes to "break even" on environmental impact. But the talking points only ever mention cost break-even. Read articles that say the blades are so robustly built that it's not worth it to repurpose, so they get buried in landfills.

Yeah, and if you dare point out impact on migrating birds, you quickly discover how little these people really care about the environment, habitat, wildlife.

Fun Fact: Obama gave windfarms a 25 year clemency period where they face no penalty for killing endangered birds.

Yes sir! There is a big fight being fought right now in northwest Ohio, where they want to put a massive wind farm smack in the middle of a major migration route on the shores of Lake Erie -one of the most important migration routes IN THE WORLD. In fact, people come from all over the world for the "Biggest Birding Week" of yr. Being fought out in the courts. It's "green" you see. :Last I read, they were offering to turn the blades off at night or something. Disgusting.

Why can't we have intelligent debates about anything? Honest debates?

That's the saddest thing about Climate Change Activism. It gets 95% of all the attention and funding while tangible conservation efforts go under the radar. What happened to planting trees and protecting the rainforests?

Because it requires competence and responsibility to not kill everyone, which are lacking. I am personally opposed to nuclear plants anywhere where a democrat could possibly ever be required to take action to maintain it or even be within a 100 mile radius. Oh the local nuclear plant needs funding for repairs? Well we will write a bill for it, but it also includes provisions for mandated abortions and requirements to quarter lgbtq muslim migrants in your house. Oh the opposition doesn't want that? we'll have to all be radiated then and it's their fault

All infrastructure which requires maintenance for safety, such as dams bridges or powerplants should be privately run and bonded in such a way that it does not require government action to prevent tragedies. (Remember the dam in Michigan?)
