It begins to be a tradition (lousy on the other hand) that the US president, Donald Trump, attacks the wind energy. This time, the US president has described wind turbines as “bird graveyard”.

The wind is one of Trump’s great obsessions. His stubbornness in criticizing this renewable technology is not well known. It could be because, with his predecessor, Barack Obama, the US was filled with wind turbines. It could also be because he sued and lost the development of an offshore wind farm in Scotland next to one of his golf courses.

The point is, as soon as he has the slightest chance, Trump lashes out at the wind. On this Twitter account, from The Hill, you can hear the last speech:

Trump says one thing and the opposite, on the one hand, he claims he doesn’t understand wind and on the other, he knows it perfectly, “better than anyone.” That’s when he pulls out the knife and ensures that wind turbines are real bird cemeteries. “Do you want to see a bird graveyard? Look under a windmill one day, you’ll see more birds than you’ve ever seen in your life”, he said with the audience laughing gracefully.

But truly, Trump was seen as the duster. It was at the end of his speech about wind. “And what they want to do is get rid of all petroleum products,” Trump said. The fear that the president of the United States has is that renewables displace his hegemony in the oil field.

The United States has become the largest producer thanks to shell oil, since last year it has already started exporting and is fighting alongside Russia and Saudi Arabia to control this market.

Trump’s obsession with wind is not now. Earlier this year, he went on to say that the noise that turbines make when turning causes cancer.

Even a little later, he also criticized her during the G7 meeting.

As early as 2017, in front of large wind producers in the state of Iowa, Trump released the following pearl: “I trust the wind won’t blow to light up their homes.”
