In the shadow of wind farms: Turbines bring economic benefits, struggles

A pretty good pro and con article on the buildout of wind "farms" in the US and some of the problems they have caused. At least we are getting a sort of fair and balanced report. 

The only important paragraph in this whole article is this: 



" Today, more than 1,000 exist. Much of the growth has been funded by American taxpayers. BILLIONS of dollars in state and federal incentives have made wind farms so profitable that companies are racing to develop…

LA Times Relating Their Drought To Arctic Sea Ice Melt

More alarmism from LaLa Land.

California just went through a drought that lasted several years, but this summer came out of it and water supplies are in pretty good shape for now. Summer Arctic ice has been plentiful for the last several years, and this summer several expeditions were turned back because the ice did NOT melt. It has been that way for quite some time. California's water woes have been caused by more…

Climate Scientists Account for Volcanoes, Change Models Drastically

“There are three kinds of lies: lies, damned lies, and statistics.” That quote was made popular by Mark Twain over a century ago, but it’s just as applicable today… especially when talking about “climate change.”

If you listen to climate alarmists, the statistics say the world is warming at an unprecedented rate, and it’s all the fault of humans.

However, a new study by University of Alabama-Huntsville climate scientists found that studies used…

Interesting - They Leave A Lot Out Of This Article.

Glowing report from the AWEA on our "Glorious" wind industry in Maine. This article makes it sound like the wind developments in Maine are just about the best things since sliced bread.

But here is what they left out. Wind power in Maine meets NONE of the installed nameplate values of the wind turbines, and the energy they DO produce goes across the border to Massachusetts. Our baseload gas, biofuels and hydro plants in Maine more than provide us with the energy we…

Hannah Pingree on the Maine expedited wind law

Hannah Pingree - Director of Maine's Office of Innovation and the Future

"Once the committee passed the wind energy bill on to the full House and Senate, lawmakers there didn’t even debate it. They passed it unanimously and with no discussion. House Majority Leader Hannah Pingree, a Democrat from North Haven, says legislators probably didn’t know how many turbines would be constructed in Maine."

Maine Center For Public Interest Reporting – Three Part Series: A CRITICAL LOOK AT MAINE’S WIND ACT

******** IF LINKS BELOW DON'T WORK, GOOGLE THEM*********

(excerpts) From Part 1 – On Maine’s Wind Law “Once the committee passed the wind energy bill on to the full House and Senate, lawmakers there didn’t even debate it. They passed it unanimously and with no discussion. House Majority Leader Hannah Pingree, a Democrat from North Haven, says legislators probably didn’t know how many turbines would be constructed in Maine if the law’s goals were met." . – Maine Center for Public Interest Reporting, August 2010 https://www.pinetreewatchdog.org/wind-power-bandwagon-hits-bumps-in-the-road-3/From Part 2 – On Wind and Oil Yet using wind energy doesn’t lower dependence on imported foreign oil. That’s because the majority of imported oil in Maine is used for heating and transportation. And switching our dependence from foreign oil to Maine-produced electricity isn’t likely to happen very soon, says Bartlett. “Right now, people can’t switch to electric cars and heating – if they did, we’d be in trouble.” So was one of the fundamental premises of the task force false, or at least misleading?" https://www.pinetreewatchdog.org/wind-swept-task-force-set-the-rules/From Part 3 – On Wind-Required New Transmission Lines Finally, the building of enormous, high-voltage transmission lines that the regional electricity system operator says are required to move substantial amounts of wind power to markets south of Maine was never even discussed by the task force – an omission that Mills said will come to haunt the state.“If you try to put 2,500 or 3,000 megawatts in northern or eastern Maine – oh, my god, try to build the transmission!” said Mills. “It’s not just the towers, it’s the lines – that’s when I begin to think that the goal is a little farfetched.” https://www.pinetreewatchdog.org/flaws-in-bill-like-skating-with-dull-skates/
