I Wonder If We Can Overcome This Giant Polluter With Wind Turbines?

A volcano in Alaska erupted this weekend causing a plume of ash and gas up to 20,000 feet in the air.  It is interesting that it has done this almost 40 times in the last two years.  The amount of ash and gas spewed has to be far more than we can save with 200 or 300 turbines here in Maine.  Ironic, HUH?

Unless these scoundrels have their plunders stored as Coin, the Digital accounting can easily be wiped out, the Bank Notes can vanish to ash. Meanwhile the desire to have more electricity to waste will not stop until the turbines and panels have long gone due to age and the fossil fuels are exhausted.

Those that feel they are doing good for this planet do not see the damage they are doing in other nations such as China with 10x the CO2 output of the worst city in the U.S. - It appears to be Green (here) but these green machines of this scheme can not begin to sustain the energy needed to create their replacements. Less CO2 here means more CO2 elsewhere.  There is NO SUCH THING as free energy or energy that does not release carbon of equal quantity when the math is done to completeness, even the process of enriching nuclear fuel. -- "Energy can neither be created nor destroyed" Albert Einstein -- Thus as the Universe must remain in eventual balance it is the processes of converting energy to our needs, that poses the dangers to our survival.

I am sure there are true believers out there that think they are 'saving the world' with wind and solar, but there are more than a few scoundrels who see wind and solar as a way to arrange for a direct pipe from the US Treasury to their bank accounts.  And there are more than a few politicians and bureaucrats who are happy to arrange the transfer.

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/
