How can wind energy possibly have an impact on carbon emissions and climate?

So please explain it to me again. If trillions have already been spent on wind energy and the U.S  wastes trillions more over the next several decades...............How can wind energy possibly have an impact on carbon emissions and climate?                                                                                                                                                               Here is a recent look at Energy consumption in the US by all 8 sectors. Not sure if Military was included in the sectors. If not I am certain it is Zero as well.  Even with wind energy's embellished numbers, when one looks objectively at the big picture, wind is meaningless. For several of these sectors the annual wind energy contribution is like spitting in the ocean. But when one listens to Wind industry lies, we pay for this industrial madness and even give these creeps Production Tax Credits.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  So why is literally no wind energy being consumed by America's industrial sector? The answer is simple.  Wind energy numbers are very low, the numbers are fake because they are taken from inside contracts, and developers are preoccupied selling every one of their fake kW to unsuspecting utility customers.

Hi Jim,

The world's primary energy (fed to power plants, to vehicles, buildings, process plants, industries, etc.) has been about 78% for 42 YEARS, even though wind and solar generation increased and several trillion dollars were spent.

http://www.windtaskforce.org/profiles/blogs/the-world-making-almost...

Here is a write up on solar's usefulness.

Solar has a terrible habit of getting high at midday (when demand is low) and then passing out in late afternoon/early evening (when demand is high), not to reappear for work until late in the next morning, somewhat like a habitual drunk sobering up.

 

The drunk does not like to work much during rainy, overcast or snowy weather, and his work output jumps up and down with variable cloudiness. And that drunk-like behavior is heavily subsidized!!

 

Such a drunk is much loved by good-doers using other people's money. He, an occasional “worker”, enjoys various generous government programs to bribe him to show up at all, such as upfront cash grants, upfront tax credits, low-cost loans, feed-in tariffs, production tax credits, and loan interest and asset depreciation write-offs to avoid paying taxes. What more could he ask for?

 

What kind of worker is that? There is nothing reliable or productive (“on demand”) about him!!

He does not deserve to be coddled.

No wonder he is behaving like a spoiled brat (disturbing the peace on the grid).

 

His co-workers (other generators) have to bend over backwards during midday when the drunken brat is most active (reduce their outputs) and then hustle to get the work done, while the drunken brat is passing out by late afternoon/early evening (increase their outputs).

 

The parents of the drunken brat keep proclaiming he is part of the “solution” and that others just have to do whatever it takes, including paying for it, to put up with him.

 

When the drunken brat was little, he was considered cute and lovable and not much of a problem, but now that he is growing up the costs imposed on his co-workers (other generators) and others (ratepayers/taxpayers) are getting out of hand (batteries, reinforcement of substations, extension of the grid, etc.)

 

And the parents of the drunken brat, whose children are disturbing the peace in the neighborhood, complain they, after all these years, finally have to pay someone to foolproof the neighborhood against their unruly brats and maintain the peace (GMP claiming 70 of its 150 substations needing upgrades to add more solar to avoid “transmission ground fault overvoltage,” or TGFOV). Those parents would rather have others (ratepayers/taxpayers) do the paying, as usual. In a sane world it is the disturber who pays!!

 

All that happened because a bunch of rosy-eyed, self-serving bureaucrats, legislators and pressure groups meddled in the electric power sector. The same types are meddling in the health care sector and education sector, and we all know how expensive they have become. When will all this nonsense end?

 

And Bernie (VT’s “Independent” Senator, thank you), with three houses, and a $70,000 Audie (supporting the GERMAN worker), and flying on private planes spewing CO2 (he claims he is buying “carbon offsets” to show he means well, just like Al Gore), and not liking a proper wall to protect the US southern border (bring in more potential Democrat voters), and having his own tax exempt foundation (don’t pay me my speaking fee, pay it to the foundation), and promising more and more goodies to every Democrat pressure group to raise his poll numbers, is campaigning for even more US-style socialism to benefit his foundation, a la Clintons, whose foundation took in tens of millions of foreign money over the years.

 

NOTE: If solar system owners were required to put in batteries (at their own cost) to smooth their electricity output, before feeding into distribution or high voltage grids, all these problems would not exist. There would be no duck curves, because the batteries would absorb any excess electricity during midday, and give it up during peak hours in late afternoon/early evening to help reduce the utility peak load on the NE grid. Solar would become a really useful contributor, like the traditional sources, and not just be an expensively subsidized disturber. That would be the logical solution.

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."

(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/

Sign up today and lend your voice and presence to the steadily rising tide that will soon sweep the scourge of useless and wretched turbines from our beloved Maine countryside. For many of us, our little pieces of paradise have been hard won. Did the carpetbaggers think they could simply steal them from us?

We have the facts on our side. We have the truth on our side. All we need now is YOU.
