Trump Trashes Wind Power in Palm Springs

Donald Trump has posted some peculiar comments on Twitter criticizing wind power. You can see one of them here:

Apparently, he doesn’t like wind power at all. He also tweeted this on Sept. 19:

How likely is it that wind turbines would be located in someone’s back yard? Furthermore, there’s no evidence of them destroying property value. In fact, farmers who put them on their land get a huge financial boost.
 

 
One of the curious things about his Palm Springs wind power bashing, is that the area is home to many golf courses. Their construction often disrupts or damages natural habitats, so why doesn’t he mention that fact?

Trump is opposing the development of wind power in Scotland because he says it will spoil the views at his golf course there. It was reported the course’s construction destroyed habitat for local birds (a project fought by true environmentalists for years).
