Trump: "You need massive subsidies for wind"

“Wind is very expensive. Without subsidy, wind doesn’t work, you need massive subsidies for wind"

“If you go to various places in California, wind is killing all of the eagles. If you shoot an eagle or you kill an eagle, they want to put you in jail for five years. And yet the windmills are killing hundreds and hundreds of eagles. One of the most beautiful, one of the most treasured birds and they’re killing them by the hundreds and nothing happens. So wind is a problem.”

DONALD J. TRUMP FORMAL POLICY ADDRESS ON ENERGY

Today Donald J. Trump spoke to thousands at the Williston Basin Petroleum Conference in Bismarck, North Dakota after clinching the GOP nomination for President of the United States. During his speech, for which he received many standing ovations, Mr. Trump took strong positions to reduce and eliminate all barriers to responsible energy production in order to create millions of new good-paying jobs, use energy production to rebuild our infrastructure and our inner cities and to reduce our debt. Mr. Trump outlined an "America First" agenda offering a significant contrast to Hillary Clinton's "Donor First" agenda that will make the special interests rich and continue to decimate the lower and middle classes. The transcript of the remarks can be viewed via the link below.

Yes, it's a problem.  What is he proposing to do about it?  Calling it a problem is not helpful.

Left Getting Apocalyptic

“In a profound blow to common sense, the future of the planet, and families across the country, Donald Trump’s victory solidifies the unfortunate fact that a person with a total disregard for the crisis posed by climate change will have a megaphone throughout the general election,” stated Sierra Club Political Director, Khalid Pitts.

Maine Center For Public Interest Reporting – Three Part Series: A CRITICAL LOOK AT MAINE’S WIND ACT

******** IF LINKS BELOW DON'T WORK, GOOGLE THEM*********

(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 https://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?" https://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.” https://www.pinetreewatchdog.org/flaws-in-bill-like-skating-with-dull-skates/
