Less killing is better than more killing, IMO. If wind farms kill fewer animals than other forms of power, then it's better than those other forms. Not perfect, but I mean, even the plants we eat are usually involved in death--small mice, etc. get run over when clearing fields and such. There may not be much that we can do to make it better.
If it's at all relevant, I'm a democrat but really don't care who it is doing whatever on this topic and I loathe the implication that I do not care because it's a dem. I would have the exact same reaction if he were republican. Do NOT put words into my mouth or assume my stance. I don't think that animals should be dying.
But if we can't have "lesser of two evils", we get the worse evil, in this case--our society is absolutely immersed in energy consumption, if you haven't noticed. People need their energy, so until we can find an alternative where an absolute minimum of animals are hurt, the "lesser" is probably favorable. I say "absolute minimum" instead of "none" because there is probably almost nothing we can do as humans about anything to eliminate animal pain entirely.
Settling for a "lesser" at the moment doesn't mean we can't also push for and come up with a less harmful way of doing things.
As for horse slaughter, is that really going to increase meat consumption overall? Is it more important just because it's a horse? It's just a different sort of animal getting hurt. I don't care what sort of animals are getting hurt--if something man-made is hurting or killing them, it's wrong anyway. I don't care if something little like that happens in the meat industry--it just needs to quit being an industry.
But if you have an idea that would continue to get us energy and switch our society over to green energy in a way that doesn't hurt animals and works for the omnivores, go for it. I don't. So long as animal pain is reduced, there is something positive in there.
