I need to ask a question. What evidence is there that industrial turbines take more energy to run than they provide? This is a broad scope question looking for empirically solid answers.

Two big wind development projects on Appalachian ridges in Bedford Counties on Dunning and Evitts mountains (24 turbines) and the Clover Run project in Clearfield counties (40 turbines) have been canceled. Fewer new turbines will be spinning across the nation next year due to the possible end of a federal tax credit program that has driven development.…Continue

Imagine one of those on the lawns of people in towns being attacked by big-wind. I wouldn't need to be real to make the message.

After calling and conferring with several road construction engineers,
I learned that to build a roadway that can carry the many tons of an industrial turbine takes quite a process. First you have to clear the area of trees and stumps etc. Next you must dig down until you have reached the “sub grade” level. To that you add up to 14 inches of 4inch crushed rock and compact it. The topping of the road is 1 to 2 inches or so of 1.5…Continue

The “Clean Energy” bill will not be on the November ballot in Maine in 2012 because the required number of signatures could not be mustered. I believe this happened because most Mainer’s have come to realize that this would not have been a “clean energy” bill at all. Maybe it should have been called the “Wind Industry Initiative” referendum. However that may be, it is clear that the “clean energy…Continue

“During tough economic times, it would normally be prudent to welcome with open arms a business that is looking to invest in the Maine economy. If there is one business that has been investing heavily in the Maine economy in the last four years, it is the wind industry.”
You apparently expect the public to assume you…Continue

The “Clean Energy” bill will not be on the November ballot in Maine in 2012 because the required number of signatures could not be mustered. I believe this happened because most Mainer’s have come to realize that this would not have been a “clean energy” bill at all. Maybe it should have been called the “Wind Industry Initiative “bill or the “Clean Energy Hoax” bill. However that may be, it is clear that the “clean energy bill” is a complete and misleading misnomer.
Today, David Farmer said, “We can’t predict the future but we do know that investment in efficiency is most cost effective and that’s for homeowners and business,” Farmer said. “That’s an idea that’s not going away.”
That is right on, David. Good you noticed. Since Industrial turbines have no efficiency whatsoever,…Continue

I have been without my duo processor 6G Ram, Hewlet Packard 7600 series vista computer for the better part of a week. But, finally was given a 5MHz stone age Gateway XP with all its incompatibilities to work on a comeback. I'd greatly appreciate a run down on the last couple weeks to help me catch up. I feel years left behind. Thanks in advance.
