Building more wind farms doesn’t make sense

wind turbines

A very poignant article from middle America who went out and did some research into why so many wind turbines were being proposed and built in Iowa. She starts off quoting Warren Buffett when he says wind makes no sense unless there are tax subsidies to write off your profits from other businesses. She goes right to the top of the wind food chain in Iowa, MidAmerica Energy's President, Bill…

Lower corporate tax rates no boon for renewables, analysts find

Analysts are examining the impact the new tax laws will put on all kinds of businesses. While the subsidies were somewhat spared for the foreseeable future, the lower tax rate will make it harder for investors like Warren Buffett to reduce their tax burden by investing in wind and solar. 

This does NOT, however, hurt the electric companies that supply our homes and businesses with power. Every American should be…

Fossil fuels: Don't bury them yet

This recent cold snap may have been a blessing in disguise. By exposing the reality of the fact that wind and solar can not perform the level of energy needed during high demand periods, the greenies in Massachusetts had to turn to coal and oil to supply themselves with energy, pumping dreaded CO2 into the atmosphere at rates previously unheard of. ISO-NE is sounding an alarm. FINALLY! …

More scare tactics from the loony left. Enough is enough!

Alert! Alert!  Political Comment!!!

Jay Inslee, the Governor of Washington, just announced that we only have 59 days to turn the tide of "Global Warming".  The scientist and inventor of the internet wholeheartedly agrees with him. Inslee just announced a plan to raise carbon taxes at the same time. What a coincidence!…

The largest deep-ocean silicic volcanic eruption of the past century

This is a pretty neat article. I wonder how many more of these go off and we don't know about them. I also wonder how much CO2 is generated into the atmosphere. Nature seems to be doing as much as man.

Will Global Warming Freeze Us to Death?? (from BDN)

David Emerson is a professional scientist at the Bigelow Laboratory for Ocean Sciences who studies bacteria that live literally between a rock and a hard place. 

But I am a little perplexed by his "scientific" credentials.

Here is what I commented:

Hey Mr. Emerson;

You are a scientist? You study oceans? Have you happened to be on any of the recent voyages in the last decade to study the North and…

New England Liberals Shut Down Coal Power Plants, Now They’re at Risk of Freezing

Officials at ISO-New England, operators of the region’s power grid, said energy demands during the recent arctic weather have placed major pressures on energy generators, forcing power companies to rely more on coal and oil to produce electricity,” the Hartford Courant reported this week.

New England's blind unscientific devotion to…

Spain Scuttles Clean-Energy Subsidies; Promptly Watches The Industry Go Down Like A Sinking Ship

Serious question, greenies: is a nation justified in completely running its economy into the ground, with all of the hardship and heartache that ensues, if it’s all for the sake of instilling the populace with what the government deems necessary environmental virtue?

This article is old, but still tells the story. This is the best hope we have for…

In the shadow of wind farms: Turbines bring economic benefits, struggles

A pretty good pro and con article on the buildout of wind "farms" in the US and some of the problems they have caused. At least we are getting a sort of fair and balanced report. 

The only important paragraph in this whole article is this: 

" Today, more than 1,000 exist. Much of the growth has been funded by American taxpayers. BILLIONS of dollars in state and federal incentives have made wind farms so profitable that companies are racing to develop…

LA Times Relating Their Drought To Arctic Sea Ice Melt

More alarmism from LaLa Land.

California just went through a drought that lasted several years, but this summer came out of it and water supplies are in pretty good shape for now. Summer Arctic ice has been plentiful for the last several years, and this summer several expeditions were turned back because the ice did NOT melt. It has been that way for quite some time. California's water woes have been caused by more…

Climate Scientists Account for Volcanoes, Change Models Drastically

“There are three kinds of lies: lies, damned lies, and statistics.” That quote was made popular by Mark Twain over a century ago, but it’s just as applicable today… especially when talking about “climate change.”

If you listen to climate alarmists, the statistics say the world is warming at an unprecedented rate, and it’s all the fault of humans.

However, a new study by University of Alabama-Huntsville climate scientists found that studies used…

Interesting - They Leave A Lot Out Of This Article.

Glowing report from the AWEA on our "Glorious" wind industry in Maine. This article makes it sound like the wind developments in Maine are just about the best things since sliced bread.

But here is what they left out. Wind power in Maine meets NONE of the installed nameplate values of the wind turbines, and the energy they DO produce goes across the border to Massachusetts. Our baseload gas, biofuels and hydro plants in Maine more than provide us with the energy we…

Battery Blues A Disaster in Hawaii

This short video asks and answers some of the most critical questions about "Renewable Energy" and what we can expect from our lunatic neighbors south of us. Wind energy "Storage" is still a technology that is NOT proven and is dangerous. Fires are commonplace and can not be fought with water as it makes very poisonous fumes and can cause explosions, BIG ONES! To a field of turbines connected to a battery pack, if a fire occurs, it has to be shut down as there is no place for the power…

I Am Getting A Very Uneasy Feeling

This week I have been one of the Mainers that has experienced a loss of power for three days, and there are still more that are going to be out for several more days. I have been out driving around Southern Penobscot County and can honestly say I have seen very few Emera crews out there doing ANYTHING for the first three days. It was a minor storm, lasted but a few hours, but there were some pretty high wind gusts and there were a lot of trees down. I didn't see a lot of wires down, but did…

There is some amount of hope on the Horizon.

Rick Perry, former Governor of Texas and now Secretary of Energy held a Capital Hill meeting on Thursday and made this comment: 

"Where we may or may not agree is just how much of this is man's fault and our decisions that we're going to make here," Perry said. "I don't believe climate change is 100 percent…

The stilling: global wind speeds slowing since 1960

This might throw a monkey wrench into the plans to erect more and more wind turbines. But of course, like all the other studies they do, they will find a way to make this a "Good News" story with fake data.

You simply have no idea what these charlatans will do with this information, if anything.

Hallelujah!!!!! Bloomberg: U.S. Tax Reform Would Leave Renewable Energy Out in the Cold

Not only will our economic future be positive, but the idea that "Renewables" will be left in the dust and the whole fraudulent scheme will implode on itself. The government has propped up this industry for 30 years and maybe real economics will move to the front.…

This Bipartisan Senate Bill Could Enable US Offshore Wind to Take Off

Guess who is sponsoring this Bi-Partisan Senate bill? Three guesses and the First two don't count. What's worse, she may be signing on to be Governor after LePage terms out. OUCH!!!! At all costs, we must end her misguided attempt to be anything more than a RINO Senator. Sorry I have to get so political, but when I think of the hours and hours I put in on every one of her campaigns, how much money I spent…

EU Utilities Say Plan for CO2 Cap on Power Subsidies Will Raise Costs

The EU is finally admitting that wind power will not be able to provide enough energy for their needs without backing up with coal or gas plants for baseload. They are misguidedly phasing out reliable nuclear. Energy prices in the EU are already some of the highest in the World and looks like they are going to go up. This puts their industry in peril. Everyday Germans are already having to decide whether to pay for their energy or buy food. The fantasy of wind and solar is that no matter how…

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


(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 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?" 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.”

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.
