How ironic that certain people don’t mind all the dead owls in exchange for wind energy, but we can’t cut down a tree where they might live.
Watch "Carbon Credits," and your wallet. This one doesn't even pretend to provide "free" anything.
It is an unashamed protection extortion racket "to prevent really really bad things from happening, if you don't pay us."
If they can figure out the storage issue then it becomes a lot more viable in certain circumstances. The subsidy is a joke though
I have often driven by a virtual forest of windmills in southwestern Minnesota and have on more than one occasion seen every one from horizon to horizon standing idle. There is simply no way wind power could ever be a reliable or efficient means of generating electricity.
We have a forest of these windmills in eastern New Mexico. It is my understanding that the ranch land is leased to the government at $58,000. per windmill, per year. How is that sustainable, or profitable?
Minor issue: Why raise cattle? Why feed the nation? Why not destroy one of the most conservative segments of society and put them on the government tit?
Yeah, those dead turbines certainly are much more beautiful than oil wells. sarc. they look almost identical.
Wind power juts like ethonal production is probably workable on a small scale right at the location, such as out on a large corn farm etc where you dont have to transport the silage and the power can be used right there. But these sort of technologies just dont scale up up and the greeneies dont seem to be able to get their minds around that.
There is simply no way wind or solar could ever supply reliably or not, all of our energy needs.
