Schumer lies like this on a regular basis. What REALLY bothered me about this latest exercise in dishonesty is that no one in the media questioned it. His ridiculous assertions and misrepresentation were reported as factual representations of reality.

Even solar and wind power companies,wonder what the tree huggers think about that?.So much for the evil oil Co.
Just more ways to shuffle OPM. Pathetic.

“Shepherds Flat will be the worlds largest wind farm: 338 gigantic 2.5 MW turbines, 97 miles of new roads and 167 miles of high voltage transmission lines sprawling across 32,000 to 83,000 acres (up to twice the size of Washington, DC) of the scenic Columbia River Gorge area. At best, the turbines may average one-third of the 2.5 MW stamped on their nameplates. At the whim of the winds, the farm will generate electricity at wild swings between zero and the turbines’ combined rated capacity of 845 MW. “
What a boondoggle.
