Posted on 03/11/2010 8:42:40 AM PST by Slyscribe
The Energy Department worked closely with the wind industry lobby to discredit a Spanish report that criticized wind power as a job killer, internal DOE e-mails reveal.
The e-mails obtained from a Freedom of Information Act request show how, starting last April, lobbyists at the American Wind Energy Association became alarmed that lawmakers were citing a study by Spain's King Juan Carlos University. The study found that Spain's massive investments in wind power cost 2.2 jobs for every "green" job created.

So this is why Algore invented the internet.
The “windys” stand to lose a lot of big money if their fraudulent “green” job baloney collapses along with Algore’s globaloney scam. Greed.
One must always keep in mind that the Obamaloon clowns pick only the worst for their positions.
The DOE might (might) have one person who actually can define what a unit of energy is.
And that person wouldn’t have a clue as how to use it but would certainly know how to cheat on their taxes.
I want you to picture this. You buy a brand new car straight off the showroom floor.
Each day of the week you drive that car to work. Out of the five days in the week you do this, your brand new car will only achieve the task once. The other four days you have to rely on alternative transport. So! Do you think you would be happy about that? I dont think so.
Renewable power, be it wind power or the two versions of solar power have this same reliability: 20%. Twenty Percent !
I heard about the Juan Carlos University report on the damage the Spanish windmill project causes for their economy. But this DOE coverup is something new.
Leftists do this sort of thing constantly, getting together to lie, cover up, and decide on mutual propaganda positions. In the Age of the Internet they must do a lot of it via emails. So that makes them extremely vulnerable to leaks and whistleblowers.
It’s like Rathergate. Not only did they forge, cheat, and lie, but eventually the messages started coming out, tracing the whole business back to the DNC. These propaganda ploys are orchestrated, and that either requires backroom meetings or emails.
It’s like life back in Nazi Germany or Stalin’s Soviet Union. “You are forbidden to talk about the Spanish windmills!”
Exactly. A power network requires, first, cheap reliable power that runs all the time. That means coal or nuclear.
Then it needs a second source of power that can be reliably and quickly turned on and off. That means natural gas—plants and generators that can be turned on at times of peak power use.
Third, it can use cheap sources of alternative power. It can use some windmills or solar panels, because when the wind comes up then they can decrease power from the natural gas generators, and so forth. But such unreliable power can only be a limited percentage of the total, or the whole system will become unreliable.
And, of course, I said cheap alternative power. Unfortunately, windmills and solar cells are not really cheap. So, basically, you are shutting down sensible plants in order to put “green” taxpayer-subsidized plants on-line. You are shutting down one kind of power in order to use a more expensive kind. That makes a lot of sense, not.
If wind power and solar power make sense, then the market will incorporate them. But it is really, really stupid to subsidize them at the cost of jobs and economic health.
You should really drive along the Columbia River Gorge to see the beautiful windmills on top of the mountains. Boy they really dress up that spot like a boobbelt on Michelle.
