I see Wind as a nursery crop for the next Nuclear renaissance.
DOE recently made public its plans for small nuclear reactors to help pump water for storage at Wind turbine sites, to allow more Wind in the mix.
The science on human contamination from radioactive materials makes it now extremely difficult for…Continue

Today marks 18 months of the University of Maine’s wind turbine experiment and the percentage of capacity achieved is an abysmal 11.39%.
There is nothing wrong with the university having embarked on this experiment. What is wrong is that the university and state have not yet applied the learning. Think about it. The state’s ONLY experiment with wind turbine production shows a striking failure, but the university claims it to be a great success. You cannot do this. One plus…

UMPI's 600 mw turbine reports an average power production of 2324.7 mwh the past ten days.
This is a little over five hours of good wind per day. The period included a 3-day nor'easter. Right now it is calm, agai,with power at munus .3 kw.
One of the incessantly repeated lies spread by the wind industry is that wind power will get the United States off of foreign oil and if we just let them put their several thousand turbines up in the Maine countryside, it will keep our troops out of harm's way. The press shamefully keeps repeating this lie despite the fact that we have many times explained to them precisely why this is simply not true.
Novey said a 5 decibel safety buffer
town was pressured in allowing a 45 decibel limit.
This is not a safety buffer. Noise will exceed 40 decibels. 5 or 6 turbines will be shut down at night for noise cautions. Many will hear them, feel them, more will see them.
