What I got:  It was somebody at ThinkProgress who thought people were jumping to conclusions; but the author of TFA is saying "maybe."

But, I only skimmed.

What if global warming is a hoax and we end up saving the environment for nothing?

It was even more meta than that: the Salon article was just commenting on the TP article where the TP writer talks about news reports from NewsWeek and CNBC where they said ebola was linked to CC.

Article is dumb and subby and is the one actually driving an agenda.

A safer idea is that when determining the truth, what slate says shouldn't be considered either way.

Thank god somebody has injected some reason into the argument. I for one am SICK of the massive changes that have been forced on us in the name of global warming. Our way of life has been turned upside down. BRB, somebody is ringing the bell on my straw hut.

I love it when people like yourself are only worried about the environment when they are trying to stick it to the libs/greens/environmentalists.

Do you have the non crazy version of this story? I couldn't find anything that wasn't just one derp blog linking back to another derp blog.

Nice. An article that roughly translates a single article from a story that has been reported by exactly one paper, a conservative one at that and that is only repeated on scary windmill sites. And the article reports no new information, just repeating a lot of 'mays' and 'mights' from an article from a couple of years ago.

After digging a bit, the Palatinate Forest has an area of over 8,000 KM2
The proposed site would use less than 2% of the area.

Oh, and nothing has been decided. Still doing research and public comments.

Who knew that there would be something where Republicans decided that privatizing Federal property would be bad?

It's way more complicated than that.

I'd invite you farming or camping if I thought it would be a pleasant experience, other than for the laughs. But probably not safe for you to be outside the city.

Does that mean you're not even going to attempt to find a legitimate source for ZOMG WINDMILLS ARE DESTROYING THE FOREST link?

Ahhhh, who am I kidding? You're a dishonest, politically motivated hack, of course you aren't here arguing in good faith.

Farming is incredibly destructive to the environment through massive amounts of pollution and straight plowing up all the nature.

My German Googling isn't up to the task. Or are you saying that German sources aren't considered legitimate?

There aren't sources for this article. Just one.

There is a documentary on Net Flix called "Windfall" that is eye opening. It isn't really anti-windmill but it does show that they are not all unicorns and rainbows.

Where I said windmills are perfect - "..."
So if something isn't perfect, we shouldn't try anything?
