President Trump: "I know a lot about wind"

3/28/19

In his speech tonight in Grand Rapids, MI, the president again took time to criticize wind power. The speech, as well as earlier speakers can be viewed at the following link.

It's good to see the president not letting up on calling out the absurdity that is wind power. Hopefully this will translate into actions which will once and for all put an end to this fraud.

President Trump walks onto the stage - Start at 1:49:40 mark.

Wind Power - Start at the 2:31:15 mark .

"Darling, I want to watch television -- I'm sorry, the wind isn't blowing. I know a lot about wind............."

Green New Deal - Start at the 2:39:50 mark.

"One car per family....how do you like the idea of one car per family?....I don't think one car per family plays too well in Michigan.....And it's got to be of course, an electric car even if it only goes, what, 160 miles.....It's 160 miles what do you do? Where do I get a charge?..................."

Bill Gates Backs Nuclear Energy Bill to ‘Prevent Worst Effects of Climate Change’

RE proponents want to shut down the New England fossil (coal, oil, gas) and nuclear plants.

First of all, FERC and NERC and ISO-NE would never allow it, unless STEADY electricity from other sources would be available at high 99.98% reliability, 24/7/365, year after year.

Variable, intermittent wind and solar, dependent on New England’s mediocre, random winds and sunshine, would never be adequate, unless huge electricity storage were available, or other regions of the US, and/or Hydro-Quebec, would have excess wind/solar electricity they could temporarily send to us, to avoid NE being “up the creek without a paddle”.

However, simultaneous wind/solar lulls of 4 - 7 days are common occurrences in New England, as proven by minute by minute grid demand and generation data, by source, posted, in real-time, on the ISO-NE website. Just google.

If the 6-day wind/solar lull in the 2017 summer (rainy, overcast, little wind) had occurred in a future year,

and with fossil and nuclear shut down and other sources essentially unchanged from 2017,

and with wind and solar each built out to 22 times 2017 installed capacities,

and with NE demand essentially unchanged,

the required battery would be at least 500,000 MWh (delivered as AC to the high voltage grid), at a cost of $200 BILLION, at a price of $400/kWh, or a mere $50 BILLION at the Holy Grail price of $100/kWh

BTW, the batteries would be LASTING ONLY ABOUT FIFTEEN YEARS.

It is off the charts idiotic for the DOE to claim the country can be run on wind and solar.

Of course, it CAN be done, but it would be entirely unaffordable.

It would be like the Green New Deal on steroids.

The US would become totally uncompetitive in world markets.

China and Russia would laugh at us.

The only realistic alternative is to build out nuclear so it would generate about 75 to 80 percent of all US electricity. 

This is feasible, because France has been doing it for decades, with great success.

France has among the lowest household electric rates in Europe.

Yes that is one good thing this guy can do can he get rid of those darn PTC? That would wipe them right out

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/

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.
