North America’s first proposed offshore wind project

Back in 1992, before Bill Clinton’s slimy administration came along,  a Danish consortium (consisting primarily of Vestas-Danish Wind Technology proposed an offshore wind turbine project consisting of 20-30 turbines in the breakwater at the Cabrillo Beach fishing pier in San Pedro CA .

 

The only selling point for the project was that promoters were falsely claiming this project would save 70,000 barrels of oil and eliminate 10,000 pounds of air pollutants.  

 

The California Coastal Commission did not buy into this propaganda. They were more concerned with the impact of the windmills would have on the brown pelicans that roosted near the site. In their statement they refused to issue a permit because………….. “Windmills in other parts of the state have taken heavy toll of local raptors and other large birds.”

 

 This would have been North America’s first offshore wind project.  

That was 24 years ago and this version of America no longer exists because Clinton style politics rule the land.  Birds, destined to be slaughtered, no matter how rare or how many, will not stop these fraudulent boondoggle projects. Then after they are built, the wind industry and Interior Department lie about this terrible impact to species. Developers are also rewarded with tax credits from exaggerated reports of the energy created from these turbines,  

From what I have seen in my research of the wind industry , the industry avoids scientific studies and conducts fake studies as a cover for their  fraudulent activity.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                

What has taken place is a great travesty because this ridiculous “garden path” turbine industry is not capable of solving any of our environmental problems, let alone telling anyone the truth.   But if you ask the Clinton’s, they will say their support of this industry is saving the world and preserving the future.

I put this together because people need to know how crooked the Clinton's are that his Administration laid the groundwork for this massive fraud on Americans.

The other day I ran across a bogus study that states that the golden eagle population has more than doubled in the last
15 years in the Diablo range. With this fake study they can build more turbines and kill even more eagles. This is the pattern I have seen in my research........The industry/ Interior Department avoid real scientific studies but routinely conduct fake studies as a cover for their fraudulent activity.

This Bald Eagle was killed by a wind turbine and the carcass was sent to the Denver Eagle Repository. Since 1997 after Clinton rigged our laws and regulations so these carcasses could be hidden, over 33,000 eagle shave been secretly shipped to Denver.

Want to know just how crooked Hillary is? People should be looking for and asking Hillary for another 100,000-200,000 emails. As it is she is claiming ,with 30,000, that she received and sent an average of about 20 a day.

Bill Clinton also opened up hundreds of national wildlife refuges to hunters and trappers to try to win hunter/trapper votes for the democrats. Aren't wildlife refuges supposed to be actual refuges for native wildlife to live in peace? Not in the US. Wildlife dies at the altar of politics and at the hands of both parties. Nothing appears to be sacred when money and votes are at stake. Not innocent wildlife and not human life either.

I'd also add that when George W. Bush wasn't busy conspiring with his Saudi friends, he was socking it to us with wind also. His buddy Karl Rove has been an AWEA speaker. And Obama has been the Godfather of Green cronyism. I have had it up to here with the Uniparty.

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."

******** 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/
