You spill anti-freeze in the gutter and the EPA/health Department will fine you out of business, they go spray 500 gallons into the wild open and it's just business as usual.

They do it for airplane de-icing all the time.

The number one polluter in Oregon is Portland International Airport. That de-icer runs straight into the Columbia River.

It's true, but if you own an auto repair shop and let some run down the gutter you are absolutely fucked if the health department finds out.

They are using hot water in this image, not glycol

No. Even boiling hot water would be come ice crystals before it hit the blade.

Do an image search... The image shown is from the company website that contracts out the cleaning service. They clearly are using hot water because spraying glycol would be nasty. The color of glycol is green or orange, this image shows clear water. Yeah, it's dumb, but it's true.

edit; found it - page 5 https://energiforskmedia.blob.core.windows.net/media/21261/airborne-de-icing-solutions-for-wind-turbines-energiforskrapport-2016-300.pdf

Good find. We must combat fake news even if it supports our narrative. That is what separates us from the other side.

No they aren't, hot water instantly will freeze to the blade making it worse. Even aircraft is de-iced with glycol and they don't have to worry about the weight so they could theoretically use an unlimited amount of hot water, but still use a glycol mix.

they will resume operations, an the blades will snap off like twigs because they cheeped out on the glue (not to mention the surfaces are constantly being turned into dusty particulates by wind abrasion, mmmmm epoxy glass dust, breath of fresh air..)

epoxy glass dust, breath of fresh air...

Funny you should mention that. You see, that is like one of my favorite wild-ass crazy ideas:

People old enough (OK, boomers) have watch the us change in really weird ways. Anyone remember rampant peanut allergies in the 50s/60s? More and more cancers everywhere. People loosing all sense of perspective. And it all seems to parallel...

Read a Q&A column in the automobile section of the paper decades ago (had to be, have stayed away from that poison for a long time now) about tires. Specifically where do they go? You put tires on the car and many miles later you do it again because the tread is gone. Where did the tread go? The answer was "powder." Tires are worn down and ground into a fine powder. As there are more and more cars on the road, there is more and more vulcanized rubber powder in the environment. All the rubber powder is affecting people mentally and physically.

QED -- "wild-ass crazy idea"...

Someday I'll tell y'all about HFCS

Fossil fuels delivered by fossil fuel burning tanker trucks since pedo Joe shut down the pipeline.

Yeah Bill Gates "INNOVATE TO ZERO" plan will use current fossil fuel technology and resources to BUILD his vision.

Building his vision is a dog whistle for killing off humans.

That helicopter looks about as useful as a penis flavored popsicle.

one coal power plant will beat the ever loving SHIT out of thousands of acres of solar panels and windmills WHILE minimizing the damage to the landscape.

AOC also planned the starvation and freezing to death of millions of people. People don't learn and will allow a Holodomor 2.0 in the name of the environment.
