People are mocking Trump for his bizarre false claim that windmill noise causes cancer – VT


Ever since Scottish officials tried to build a “really ugly wind farm” by his Aberdeen golf course in 2006, Donald Trump has been an outspoken critic of wind power. He has also been a lifelong climate change denier, despite 97% of climate scientists agreeing that climate change is real and humans are causing it. “The concept of global warming was created by and for the Chinese in order to make U.S. manufacturing non-competitive,” he tweeted in 2012.

In response to alarming reports about the consequences if we don’t take action on climate change, Trump has mocked renewable sources of energy. At a rally in Ohio last month, he predicted power failures if the wind stops blowing, quipping, “When the wind doesn’t blow, just turn off the television darling, please.” That’s a humorous scenario, but not accurate, as grid operators draw electricity from solar panels, natural gas turbines and hydroelectric dams during gaps of wind.

  1. How much more of Trump and his bizarre Tweets and comments are going to be allowed, surely Social Media organisations should be policing these Fake Claims and Fake News.

    The public, surely, needs to be safeguarded from all this, as not to do so, could cause great harm to the listening public.

    The safety of the public should be the main priority and they need warned of the effects of this very contagious infection, going by the name of Trumpism; #Trumpism
