We currently have five wind turbines installed off the coast of Block Island amounting to our entire "offshore" wind generation. There is a "pipeline" to build out 24,564 MW of new offshore wind across 13 states. While this sounds HUGE, let's try and convert some of these outlandish sounding numbers into something we can all understand.…Continue

We often hear wind power is generating lots of jobs for Iowans. How true is this? Wind power is subsidized by taxpayers, because it cannot support itself or the jobs it claims without subsidies in the form of tax credits. This means we, the taxpayers, are paying for the jobs claimed by wind power. Check out the Production Tax Credit (Iowa Code 476C) if in doubt.…Continue

We’ve been told over and over again that wind power is one of the cleanest power sources on earth, all by people like Al Gore. And why wouldn’t it be?…Continue
It's time to dry up all incentives for all "renewable energy" sources.
Wind and solar have been around for as much as 40 years producing less than 10% of our national power, and still they want to be propped up by subsidies and tax credits. On a percentage basis, they get 40 times the benefits other producers…Continue
Whitewater Rafting in the Kennebec Gorge
Susan Ely, from the Natural Resource Council of Maine, is joining the Sierra Club and explains why the 145 mile transmission project is a financial scam by CMP will do nothing to reduce emissions and will destroy much of the wilderness of Maine. It is very clear that CMP is trying to usurp large amounts of cash…Continue
It is clear that the wind lobby has infiltrated every level of our media and government, both state and federal, and are NOT stooping their intrusion into everything that we hold dearly.
Now they are fighting to make our military less safe and for that matter all of us, too. Obama and his administration took off the restrictions for having wind turbines near military bases, airports, and other sensitive sites because…Continue

Wind and solar farms are glutting networks more frequently, prompting a market signal for coal plants to shut off
The disruption of grid energy by renewable energy continues to grow, even in places that have touted wind and solar for years. Prices have been driven to ZERO for producers like coal and gas and even hydro in places where wind and solar are plentiful. The problem is though that wind is expensive…Continue
Does anyone remember how the Spaniards were put in our face during a time of the buildup of wind energy? How OUR energy company, Iberdrola, a Spanish Company, was making huge developments in wind was our future? And how MISERABLY Iberdrola failed in Spain?
Well thank goodness we don't have anything to do with the EU anymore, or the Paris Accord or fake energy news. Spain is trying to open new coal plants and trying…Continue

The scientists in Europe are finally starting to get a leg up. They are challenging the non-scientific bureaucrats who have been promoting wind and solar and are finally getting the truth out. Germany has realized it, France has resisted it and has the cleanest of all energy in Europe with their nuclear and hydro power, but energy is getting so expensive . . . . and they have no coal left or oil or gas. They have had to depend on imported gas from Russia at a…Continue
