He says that wind power isn’t sustainable...I don’t know about that, because right now, the town I live in is totally running off of wind power.
A brand new coal powered plant was built, and fired up just a few months ago, but right now, it’s not in use. I don’t know why, just that it isn’t, and our entire city is being run off of the wind turbines.
The coal plant they built replaced a gas powered electric station, but officials decided the cost of natural gas was too high. They were purchasing electricity from California..during the brown-outs back a few years ago when Cali supposedly was short of electricity. It was cheaper to purchase the power than it was to generate our own.
Wind is good in some areas, but not in others. I’m told that the power and resources it takes to keep building the replacement wings is more than what the machines generate. In some areas, they are being abandoned.
I think that blaming humans for the heating is wrong. There are other factors involved from space itself. The global heating is occurring on planets within our solar system, also.
It’s good to see this man speaking up as well he should. But, the damage is done with regard to global heating, and it’s costs to the wallets of those who have been involuntarily divested of $$.
Very few places on Earth have continuous winds. What does your city do when there are periods of little wind?
Without taxpayer subsidies we would not see any of these big wind farms that blight many countrysides.
Many beautiful Golden Eagles are being killed by wind farms in California, just to please the environuts.
The Wildlife Service estimates that at least 400,000 birds are killed each year by wind farms.
I have to wonder, how big is your town? What kind of climate do you have? What is the overall population density within a 100 mile diameter of your town? How many windmills are there, how much land do they occupy, and how many birds do they purée annually? What effect do they have on other wildlife?
While wind power might be feasible in some areas (as long as you don’t care about birds), it isn’t a long-term solution for most areas. Here in heavily forested Maryland, the only place to put wind turbines is on the water. That’s problematic.
And the name and location of this ‘magical kingdom’ is?????
There’s no problem with wind power as long as it isn’t being subsidized by Taxpayers. The problem occurs when Gov’t starts picking winners and losers in industry.
