Wind Energy – A runaway failure for nearly 4 decades Part 1 of 3

Wind Energy – A runaway failure for nearly 4 decades

If you are one of the millions across America, that that believes wind energy will create a better world, you need to read the facts presented here.   This information has been hidden by the media, utility companies, your government and by most of all, a terribly destructive industry seeking profits.   

California’s wind turbines may have started a green revolution here in America. But as readers will learn here, wind energy’s perceived value to society is a devious fantasy.  Adding to the public’s confusion is that this puffed-up industry has been enabled with layers of rigging from politicians, planted media stories, fraudulent research, data manipulation and outright lies. All for the purpose of giving corporations access to taxpayer billions. As you will learn here it certainly has not been for the energy provided.                                                              

I would imagine that the US has now invested well over 2 trillion dollars in these turbines and infrastructure. But the story and success of wind energy is the basically same power of suggestion story as “The Emperor's New Clothes.”  Ironically this well-known tale written in Denmark 200 years ago, is also the home of this fake green industry. 

From the massive amounts of publicity over the years one would think that wind energy is carrying a rapidly increasing load of America’s electricity demands.  Opinion polls overwhelmingly show that the public supports renewable energy and especially wind power.  But these favorable polls are from the mistaken belief that wind energy is green, has few impacts and is carrying a rapidly increasing load of America’s electricity demands.  But this is a false perception created by sellouts, ignorance and profit seekers searching for taxpayer gold.

From my years of wind energy related research, I have found that for this industry telling the truth means absolutely nothing.  For example, the first and only credible scientific mortality study ever conducted around wind turbines, was released in 1985.  Since then all mortality research has been a rigging and cover-up game.  Since the release of that first wind industry study, showing a bird mortality rate of 34 fatalities per MW, what obviously became most important to this industry,  was public opinion.             

It is not easy for the public to admit how easily they can be duped. But this industry knows it and they have been working everyone for decades with an onslaught of research rigging, false media stories, false advertising, subliminal messaging and energy production embellishments.  If they say they are great then they must be great and this has conditioned the minds of the masses.                                                                                                                

At one time the public was led to believe that wind turbines could make us independent of Middle East oil, then the primary story supporting wind energy development evolved into to fixing climate and saving mankind. Or maybe you have been led to believe that these turbines will power a new generation of electrified transportation

While this form of transportation is coming, the vast majority of electrical energy consumed by electrified transportation will never come from wind turbines. The saddest part about this entire green fraud is that America’s utilities and energy providers all know that wind energy is no solution for any of this.   They all know because they live with wind energy’s wimpy inefficient production numbers every day.

Everybody reading this also needs to understand what I know to be true about this industry. An industry that will cover-up their slaughter to tens of thousands of eagles, including our endangered species, will stop at nothing for profits.  An industry after killing thousands of eagles over the last 35 years at Altamont, then colluding with the USGS (2015) on a study overestimating this same population by more than ten times, will also stop at nothing.                                                                                       

For the naysayers that do not believe in my expertise, I give you this …….. Our President Obama has just rewarded this industry for their decades of mortality fraud on America.  After claiming for years that very few eagles were being killed annually by wind turbines and that Altamont Pass was a regional aberration, our President just recently signed a rule making it legal for this this industry to kill up to 6200 eagles annually in America.   With this new rule, President Obama just confirmed that this massive hidden eagle slaughter from wind turbines, has always been with us.  More proof is at the Eagle repository in Denver where more than 33000 eagle carcasses have been received by this morgue since 1997.                                                                                                                                                                                      This ongoing wind industry slaughter is also killing millions upon millions of birds annually while producing very little energy for society. Being a dedicated wildlife biologist, I am aware of the extinction of species coming from these prolific killers and this is exactly why I write about wind energy.   

Audubon, the Sierra club and several other prominent conservation groups support wind energy. They have also been receiving buckets of wind energy funding thru various channels. If you read their canned statements or look at their websites, these groups claim this form of lethal energy will eventually save more species in the future from climate change, so any species slaughter currently taking place, is for a greater good.  Readers will clearly see from the unfiltered numbers given in Parts 2&3, what complete sellout fools all these groups have become.

With fraudulent research and no accountability, the wind industry has been hiding over 90 percent of their turbine slaughter since 1985. Here are a number of articles I have written that clearly discuss the wind industry's hidden slaughter:                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    The highest annual estimated bird mortality from wind turbines in the US is claimed to be no more than 573,000. This article analyzes the manipulation of a study conducted at a University around one large turbine. Read how this unscientific study relates to the fake US wind mortality estimate.                                                                                                                                                                Has annual wind turbine mortality to birds and bats reached 45 million? Yes, according to one study. http://www.windtaskforce.org/profiles/blogs/has-annual-wind-turbine...

This is a recent comprehensive summery of the fake wind industry research being used to push wind projects onto an ignorant public.  Hundreds of 700 ft turbines are planned for Lake Erie.                                                                                                                                                                             LAKE ERIE COMMENTS ON “ICEBREAKER” PROJECT TITLE EA-2045

Very important corrections for new eagle killing rules - Annual bald eagle bag limits are now 7,518.

Even though this new rule was primarily designed for the unencumbered expansion of wind energy into the wetland habitats inhabited by eagles, this new rule does includes all industrial eagle take.

Population estimates used for eagle take were created with embellished population figures. Proof of this was submitted in my 7.1.2016 comments to the Interior Department. However my eagle take figures of 6200 are not correct. The final revisions had several changes from the draft revisions. Most notably:

Bald eagle take limits were modified from 4,200 eagles annually to 3,742 bald eagles in the coterminous United Sates and 3,776 eagles in Alaska, for a total of 7,518 bald eagles annually. Golden eagle take limits remain zero.

Golden Eagle take limits may remain at zero but their slaughter from wind turbines continues, new wind projects in their habitat are being planned, and their declining populations remain hidden

Frank also Nimby means not in my State.  Most of the green fraud now taking place is to create a false demand supported by rigged renewable standards.  In parts 2 & 3 you will what has happened in CA.  I suspect New York is also claiming false amounts of instate green energy production and fake green energy purchases from Maine.

For me this is politically correct..........These lying bastards have to be stopped.  Part 2 will come later today or tomorrow.

Jim , Nice job. Citizens also need to be made aware that in Falmouth  Massachusetts and 21 other communities at each wind turbine installation around 200 residential home owners are affected by a noise described as torture from the wind turbines and shadow flicker. NIMBY used to mean "Not In My Back Yard " now means " Next It May Be You "

Sounds like excellent future testimony to a congressional committee. It's time to go after these frauds with maximum aggression. Anything short of this will prove the "nice guys finish last" saw.

Maine Center For Public Interest Reporting – Three Part Series: A CRITICAL LOOK AT MAINE’S WIND ACT (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  http://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?"  http://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.” http://www.pinetreewatchdog.org/flaws-in-bill-like-skating-with-dull-skates/
