In Central Illinois, there is a huge wind farm with over 500 large windmills. The few times I’ve gone past them, no more than one out of every ten or twelve are even moving. Don’t ask me why. You would think basically all would move a little if one did.
They look bad and are the biggest waste of tax dollars I’ve ever seen in a country setting.

(The UN has never won a war, nor a conflict, but liberals want it to rule all militaries.)
The huge blades are still coming from somewhere. I see them being trucked through Houston. I saw T. Boone Pickins say he was not still building wind farms but someone must be.

I've had the same experience while driving through the wind farms in southern CA. Hundreds of windmills standing idle while only a handful were turning.
I wondered if someone needed to shimmy up there with a can of WD-40.

That's because the dirty little secret of windmills is that they are horribly unreliable. They break. A lot.
All of this stuff is a joke. We should be funding basic physics until we can get a gigawatt out of something the size of a brick.

You should see the panhandles of Oklahoma and Texas. Large electric windfarms everywhere.
