The Political Steamroller Behind Wind Power

1. Wind proponents are not asked to independently PROVE the merits of their claims before (or after) their product is forced on the public,

2. There is no penalty for making specious assertions about their product’s “benefits,” so each contention is more grandiose than the last, and

3. Promoting wind is a political agenda that is divorced from true science. True science is based on real world data — not carefully massaged computer models, which are the mainstay of anti-science agenda evangelists. _MasterResource

If you have not yet watched the SlideShare presentation on wind energy by John Droz, you are doing yourself a vast disservice. The huge government mandate being forced on the taxpaying public by the Obama Pelosi regime is economically ruinous, and totally pointless from the standpoint of energy production. No, I am being much too kind to Obama Pelosi. The big wind crusade is also ruinous from the standpoint of energy production, because spending many billions on big wind means that we cannot spend those resources developing power generation methods that actually work.

In other words, the long range forecast for the future as a result of the big wind steamroller and political crusade of the O-P regime is: cold in the winter, hot in the summer, and widespread poverty, ignorance and hardship.

    Ah, Mr. Banks, either you have a toothache or someone struck a nerve! If you wish to call a website a "crank site" perhaps you need to learn to sound like less of a crank yourself when you go off that way. :-* Things may have changed since your time, but most people now appreciate more of an argument and less name calling and hyperbolic accusation.
