We gave it all away

In the last couple of weeks, we see the proof that one of the “pushes” for renewable energy is DEAD.  “Peak oil”, unless it meant when we reached the level of filling every container, ship, and oil tank out there and still had MORE and MORE coming out of the ground, is nothing but a lie, a scare tactic, a huge show of stupidity by the “educated” folks.  The world is awash in oil.  The price has dropped to a negative value in some markets.  You literally cannot give the stuff away.  THERE IS NO PEAK OIL AND PROBABLY NEVER WILL BE.  This was a LIE, a political lie and a power lie, to cruelly deprive people of their lives and their livelihoods by the overlords.*  It is being used to cause the extinction of species of animals, poison people in Third World countries and destroy the landscape all in the name of GREED.  GREED=GREEN.  Always did, always will.  So in the name of a demonstrable lie, we will stupidly and apathetically allow the destruction of the environment and living standards of billions of people, energy from weather is installed far and wide to fatten the wallets of the already soulless rich.  After watching fools sit in their homes in fear of a virus, I am sure your grandkids are going to live in hell, dark and hungry, because it’s just too tough to fight back.  Well, except maybe in a few states where there are still real Americans fighting their tyrannical governors, but I can’t see that that will be enough.

We live in the Matrix, Wonderland (Yes, that was the White Rabbit you just saw, followed by the Mad Hatter and the Queen of Hearts.  You’re not hallucinating, you just bought the lie hook, line and sinker, kissed reality goodbye and now this is your reality.)  We do so by choice and in complete denial of what it means.  However, Covid 19 has showed us EXACTLY what this stupidity we display will mean and thus far, people sit in their house jails and watch a blank screen (they ran out of Netflix money a month ago).  Domestic violence is up, etc, but the virus……No need for slight of hand.  Just point to an imaginary threat and the people run and stick their heads in the sand.  I’m living in the Soviet Union I was taught about in my youth—only someone moved it here….

So, get ready to exterminate those pesky eagles, owls and bats, be eaten by bugs and mosquitos, living without air conditioning, medical care, and apparently toilet paper.  No problem with getting people to stop eating meat—livestock is being slaughtered and disposed of right now, milk poured out and vegetables plowed under.  It’s UTOPIA!!!  We have reached Nirvana.  Or Hell.  In this case, they look a lot a like.

Sadly, I see no way out of this.  Apathy and stupidity is at such a level, human-created hell is inevitable, the extinction of animals and the death of millions is the only outcome seen.  No miracles, no last minute save.  Am I saying to “give up”?  No, we already did.  Those thousands of money trees slaughtering wildlife and killing Third Worlders are proof thereof.  This is the world we leave to the children people didn’t love enough to protect or save.

Pandemic, anyone?

I cannot seem to find time to update here.  The Covid insanity is time-consuming, trying to find groceries I need (luckily, I am a plan-ahead person with plenty of non-perishables, but milk, eggs, cheese, etc are a bit difficult.  I do have frozen cheese and eggs.  No frozen milk, though!), and avoiding the MSM drivel.  Much of the time I am struck by how the Covid insanity is so very much like AGW insanity.  There are the models, which are actually waaaayyyy further off than AGW ones (by up to 40 times, in some cases) and it’s so much faster to see how badly the models fail.  Still, people are worried about a freaking virus and figure the apocalypse of CO2 was beat out by said virus and we’re all toast.  Reality is irrelevant.  Fear is all they have.  Worse, we are being literally tormented by the supposedly caring now clearly dictators that run the states.  It’s the biggest ego and power grab I’ve ever seen and worse, people just take it.  I’m positive at this point, CO2 and Covid are absolutely not going to take us out—our own STUPIDITY AND APATHY are.  Hamsters, home watching Netflix and running the treadmill.  Fifty years ago, there would have been protests and no one would have listened.  Not now.  We have lost our humanity.  The good news is, it really doesn’t matter how hot the planet gets, we’ve screwed ourselves.dscn2595

Wind turbine blade burying:

The hot new topic with so-called “green energy” (meaning useless, wasteful product that enriches only a wealthy few) is blade disposal.  Now, you would think that a “green product” and “eco-friendly” product would not need thousands of acres of landfill space, since that is the total definition of “NOT ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY” (ask all those “zero landfill” braggers out there, like Subaru—makes wind environmental rapists and plunderers by the enviros own standards),  but in this Alice-in-Wonderland crazy society, up is down and good is bad.  It seems if a product has been declared “good”, in truth it can be radioactive, cancer-causing, unearthly wasteful and no one cares.  It can take millions of tons of material, can have excessive waste and pollute third world countries.  Because the White Rabbit says none of this matters so long as it’s harming capitalism while enriching capitalists that made millions off oil and gas and now off the fake energy of turbines and solar panels.  It’s all about the money—KEEPING THE RICH RICH.  Really, you silly little greenies, you can’t see this????  How can you breathe when you’re that stupid????

Now, as for what to do with the blades, since I have little hope people will wake up and fight the wind pillagers.  First, I still maintain shelter for homeless is the best bet.  It would not be hard to come up with designs—I can come up with two or three.  It would not be called housing because the insane government has too many rules on that.  However, shelter could be made and you could also put in plumbing and showers.  It’s not rocket science.  A clever 12 year old could do it.  So why isn’t it happening?  My guess is the wind turbine people and the evil governments in some states (we all know who you are) really don’t give a whit about human beings, prefer people living in filth and don’t have any intention of helping anyone other than themselves.  Since the fools keep voting these people in, I must conclude that half the country hates humanity and wants suffering.  (Yes, this does follow—refusal to use a perfectly good idea because it’s not exactly what you want is hatred of humans and lack of caring, especially while your “solutions” are condescending and enslaving.  You saw this in the BP oil spill where if the water wasn’t 100% clean, NO cleaning could happen.  How much do you have to hate humanity to require filthy, oil-coated water and not 75% clean water?  Don’t bother to answer.  We all know how evil this behavior is.)

You could also require the wind industry provide the space to bury the turbines and do it retroactively.  After all, they are the ones saying they are environmentally friendly and all those other falsehoods.  So, call them on it.  Have them bury the blades in between the turbines in places like Wyoming where they already pillaged the prairie with tons of steel, concrete, etc.  Dig up a few more hundred acres and bury your own trash.  Require that rancher or farmer you have a five-digit per turbine deal with to provide landfill space.  Make these people responsible for the lie they told about their product and make them correct the problem with their funds, NOT people who did not ask for and may actually hate the whole mess (as well they should).  Our landfill went up $3 after little miss landfill head told us the money from turbine burials would be soooooo helpful.  So I guess she lied or they were going for $5 per load and having people dump trash in ditches, something the increased cost may still do.  Plus, I don’t bother to recycle—the county obviously LIED about not having enough space, which was why we were to recycle.  I despise people who lie to me and will not cooperate in any way with their lies and idiocy.  So, no more recycling unless it serves MY purposes, not theirs.  I’m tired of the lies and deception of these creatures.

Future down

Gov. Gordon jokingly signed an executive order to protect migration corridors for big game.  This after bragging endlessly about destroying habitat far and wide with useless, environmentally damaging wind turbines.  So, money, money, money and stupidity beat wildlife any time.  As do lying people-hating Governors.  Wyoming HATES wildlife and is doing all it can to destroy the open spaces that are home to it.  Another three years of Gordon and we’ll have dead antelope and mule deer everywhere and the sagebrush sea raped and pillaged for the benefit of Warren Buffet and all those earth-hating millionaires and billionaires.  Luckily, few people, too, as the industries are destroyed and people flee the insane state.  What do you expect when you elect a Democrat who puts an R after his name so stupid people fall for his lies??????  He already destroyed the coal industry.

The wind turbines around Medicine Bow are directly in the middle of pronghorn territory and migration corridors used in the winter.   Does that matter?  NO NO NO NO NO NO.  Because MONEY MONEY MONEY.  The antelope count for NOTHING.  The lies of the wind industry just keep coming.  All for MONEY and nothing useful.  Again, just shoot the antelope and be done with those pesky creature and run dozers through the sagebrush sea to destroy sage grouse and horned lizards.  Destroy all of history, burn those stupid towns of the Old West.  This is the New West—just like the Old One actually.  Whatever makes money we do, irrespective of the damage and destruction.  Greed and destruction are who we are.  Should anyone actually tell you Wyoming cares about anything but MONEY, laugh and laugh and laugh.  As I once told a Governor, Wyoming would sell their grandmother to the devil of they could make a buck off it.  They would.

As for the “Wyoming wind” it was 65 MPH gusts this week and all the frigging turbines shut down.  People are complete morons.  (And the English peninsula has been in the dark because they were ignorant and apathetic and didn’t understand this reality, that high wind SHUTS DOWN turbines, and a storm hit.  Same for the unicorn believers in Australia who went dark, who then paid Tesla millions so they could have 20 minutes more lights before it all shut down during the next storm.)  I’m really considering selling extraterrestrial rocks gathered from my yard to fools on the internet.  Considering the average intelligence of humans, I’ll be a millionaire overnight.  Stupidity will kill in the end.

As for any hope in this, millions of brain-dead Californians sat in the dark for days due to high winds and the power company shutting off their power and DID NOTHING.  Just sat like utter lumps.  Any feared large protests never happened.  If millions will sit in the dark for days, we are far too stupid to stop this.  Yes, the AGW cult is destroying your children’s future and most Americans are merrily serving their kids up as live sacrifices to the god Gaia.  That’s what happens when people no longer love their kids and refuse to use the brains God apparently wasted on them.  I pity the future generations, unloved and throw to the dogs.

How to destroy the environment and humanity while making billions for a few

(I have rather given up on presenting rational reasons for opposing wind turbines.  There is a point at which people are so mesmerized and so totally ignorant that it’s a waste of time.  It has been noted the wind industry lies and presents unicorns and is very effective.  The wind lie is NEVER about facts and reality, ever.  Just fuzzy bunnies and pretty clouds…..)

The blight of wind and the hatred therein

There should be no surprises over “pay for play” in the government.  The wind industry is founded on it, lives on stealing from taxpayers and benefits only those who are rich enough to pay. They produce NOTHING except graft, environmental destruction and enrichment of the ruling class.   People look at the destruction and graft day after day, but are too blind or ignorant or apathetic to care.  Yet they have fits about the Clintons.  YOU ARE SUPPORTING graft and corruption when you praise and back the wind industry.  It’s all “pay for play” graft destroying the environment and enriching the rich.  So please don’t tell me you’re angry at the Clintons but not at Charles Grassley, Duke Energy and the entire system of environmental destruction they created and support 100%.  Don’t tell me you care about the environment and back wind, like the lying, cowardly fools do where I live.  These people DESTROY open spaces and are damn proud of it.  Just like the progressives they truly are—not conservatives at all.  I reserve the right to condemn the lies and hypocrisy and to care as little about your children’s futures as you do.  I reserve the right to tell those children YOU destroyed the environment at a level so far beyond a few arsenic-tainted gold mines from the last greed-filled pillaging of the environment, it will not be equaled in decades.  The scale is off the charts on this one.  It actually makes the Clintons look like amateurs and you RINOs are cheering and supporting it.  You do hate the environment as much as the progressives.  They are right on that.  When there’s unlimited tax money for the thieving and buying votes with it from your constituents, you’re right up there with the Clintons, the Bidens, all of them.  So, I laugh when I hear your lies and consider how stupid you are and how much you hate America and its people.  Nothing says hatred like a giant, graft supporting, total environment-destroying wind turbine.  You will never have the respect of anyone who cares about the environment or opposes graft, but you will be loved by the haters of America and humanity.

When I worked in seismic processing, one of the guys had worked overseas.   He said they routinely paid graft to the docks, the governments, etc in countries where he worked.  He’s dead now, never having seen America become the countries he worked in, full of graft and corruption.  We are those we claim to hate.  We hate who we are, most definitely.  Trump can improve the economy, but he cannot fix the hatred, power-hungry elite that will devour us at the first opportunity while we gaze like idiots out the window at the wind turbines sitting motionless in the wind.  You can’t make people great who WILL NOT THINK and WILL NOT FIGHT BACK.  They are nothing but fodder for the dictators of the future.  That is their entire purpose and value.

It is 100% a LIE to say you don’t believe in climate change and then build wind plants.  Anshutz LIES LIES LIES all the time about this.  Or he’s just an evil greedy nature-hating billionaire who despises humanity.  Take your pick.  No one who backs wind energy cares about anything but money.  They hate nature, humans and the future.  They want poverty, extinctions, and to industrialize the planet.  They hate open spaces.  Yes, they are pure hatred and greed.  There are no redeeming parts to wind—zip, zero, zilch.  It is more evil than any deliberate killing of a species, burning the Amazon to the ground, any of it.  I cannot emphasize the magnitude of the destruction this is bringing.  THOUSANDS AND THOUSANDS of towers over what was open prairie.  To hell with sage grouse, horned lizards and best of all, open spaces and human beings.  It’s a magnitude of hatred that is mind-boggling.  One supposes that since the excuse for this greed and destruction (global warming scam) was an evil lie, it follows that the fruits of it are wrong and humanity-destroying.  You cannot be for wind and care at all about humanity, nature or the planet.  

For those of you who think this is “over the top”, I’m sure you’d have made a lovely disciple of any dictator in the past or present.   All great societies fall due to apathy and idiocy.  This is real and you can bury your head in the sand (Extinction Rebellion does that, so join those violent, people-hating protestors, as they are on your side—destroy capitalism and the environment), but reality does not care.  It crushes just as fast if you believe or you don’t.  If you disagree, explain, IN FULL with the data and math, why.  Otherwise, shut up and crawl in a hole.  You’re screaming and wailing is just pathetic and you’re embarrassing yourself.  (Note: Feel free to show the math for the graft and environmental destruction if you want.  It’s an equal opportunity blog.)

Note:  I have NEVER had an explanation from the graft and destruction side, so my guess is, I am 200% correct and everyone knows it but buries their heads in the sand so they don’t have to see.

Wind is not an energy source

I constantly hear about Wyoming wind.  Yep, we have wind.  Two or three days ago, gusts reached Cat2 or nearly such hurricane speed in some of the gusts (some were 1 mph below the threshold).  Today, it’s under 4 mph where I am sitting now.  NEITHER produces electricity.  The turbines SHUT DOWN in the high wind and don’t cut in until 7 or so mph.  Yet the wind companies use “average wind speed” (the wind was 30+ mph sustained in the first example, so 30 plus 4 divided by 2 gives us 17 mph.  Turbines turn at that speed (assuming they turn at all—many times they seem locked down).  Yet, average is completely WRONG.  There was no production, none. 

To properly assess wind speeds, you need the number of hours the wind is in the “correct” range.  However, since wind is not about producing electricity, it’s money laundering and environmental destruction, people don’t care and investors don’t seem to either.  Wyoming is pillaging its resources based on a LIE for whatever money they can wring out of taxpayers and rate payers, as are many other states.  A proper evaluation, or complete privatization with NO government money and NO RPS’s and the like, NO California demanding renewables, would clearly show the futility of using Energy from Weather.  It’s a return to the past, devolving.

How did we get to this point?  Poor education and propaganda in schools is probably the major reason.  Then there is apathy—as long as the lights stay on, who cares?  That worked really well for California, yep.  Days without electricity are now common when there is high wind and that is the future of the USA if people don’t stop the insanity.  It’s interesting there were apparently very, very few protests in California and no evidence the blackouts will end until the high winds abate.  The citizens of a first world country sit in the dark like fools.  Sad.

Until people understand and stop buying the gypsy wagon sales pitches of wind, they rush toward lights out with glee.  How a society so advanced as the US could fall so far into the ignorance and foolishness of the Middle Ages and before, worshipping weather and fearing it, living in the dark, giving up everything to the Green Monster, I do not understand.  Most of the time, I think Steven King’s fiction was right—It’s in the Water.  (Short story, Omni Magazine, 1986 “The End of the Whole Mess”)

The usual holiday cartoon

After the new year, I am moving to a somewhat more “scientific” look at turbines, but because this is also a very political issue, some posts and all cartoons will be directed at the insanity of wind.

Revisiting posts

Lest anyone think I am exaggerating on the wind invasion of the once scenic Wyoming, I researched turbines going into the vicinity of my cabin (now being sold—any turbine lovers out there looking for a recreational area?) or on route to it.  There are the following going in, according to the DEQ and local papers:

Boswell Springs  170 turbines  (currently on hold due to dispute)

Ekola Flats  100 turbines

Lucky Star  200 turbines

Two Rivers  77 turbines

TB Flats  200 turbines

This is over a period of approximately four years.  That’s 747 turbines in only three counties.  Highly over-crowded and destructive.  So much for open spaces, preserving wildlife, historic areas or anything whatsoever that was once Wyoming.  Add in the 1000 turbines Anshutz is putting in on the no longer historic, no longer a ranch (though that’s on hold, while he still gets the PTC no matter how long it takes, it seems) and you have 1800 turbines.  Plus, 120 turbines in Roundhouse west of Cheyenne (for the benefit of Colorado, of course.  God forbid they destroy their lovely state).

There are also plans for an additional 48 turbines NE of Glenrock (proud recipient of several hundred already) and 47 NE of Evanston (west side of the state).  By my count, which may not be 100% accurate, there are 836 turbines in the SE corner of Wyoming:

Wyoming_map

White line shows border of area I am addressing

 

The motivation for every one of these was MONEY.  Towns did not care what citizens wanted.  Ranchers lied about caring about ranching while turning their former ranch into a power plant (funny, I wonder how many would “host” a natural gas plant for backup.  Yet 400 to 500 foot steel towers with spinning blades is somehow “green”.  Only to the most greedy or ignorant.  These are INDUSTRIAL wind and the Industrial Siting Council permits them.  There is nothing rural, farm or anything similar.  It is industrialization of huge segments of areas with too few people to fight back.  The UN called this a violation of human rights.  Funny, when the UN speaks on climate change we are supposed to listen, but human rights?  Who cares????)

I must add that the stupidity of humans plays into this.  A friend told me people actually believe this destruction will provide jobs and make their towns bigger and better.  Not to mention the bribes from the wind companies in the form of playgrounds, etc.  Eighty percent of the workforce is from out-of-state and will leave when the projects are over.  Permanent jobs are well under 50 per installation (way less, as far as I can tell) and MOST will go to out-of-staters who have the training and clout to get them.  Many of the jobs pay less than half of what is paid by fossil fuel industries.  The turbines will do zip for these gullible fools.  No jobs, ruined landscape, now living in industrial parks.  It boogles the mind.

Imagine your recreational area surrounded by nearly 747 NEW turbines.  This does not include the 200 to 400 already there.  Over a thousand turbines to drive through, watch the blinking lights destroy the night sky, and watch your rural area industrialized for NOTHING but MONEY.  I cannot emphasize how much damage is done for NO BENEFIT other than financial.  NONE.  Yet the cult of AGW continues to worship these things and greedy towns and states destroy their environment with them.  Many of these 1000+ are in sage grouse areas, but since Trump was elected, the “deal” about sage grouse means nothing.  If only the ESA had had the sense to list them.  Now, they don’t have a chance.  But who needs a stupid bird when you can make MONEY?  (Note:  If there really was any benefit to these turbines, that would have to be weighed against the birds.  However, tax breaks and billion-dollar bonuses for the ultra-wealthy with zero other benefit?  Might as well just plow the birds and the prairie under, hand over the money and smile.  The damage is less permanent to the prairie, though probably not the birds.  It’s also far more honest.)

All of this damage could have been avoided with fossil fuel plants and natural gas or coal.  The goal of AGW is obviously to kill the patient, not save it.

Calling all fools

I always hear the ads trying to sell to complete losers who have no idea what a contemptuous, vile place Wyoming really is inviting them to buy “real ranch land”.  Yep, bordered by a vile, greedy, rich rancher that will dwarf your land with wind turbines to up his income by six or seven digits.  Now, I will be honest—this is what the West was and is.  Hateful, spiteful rich who ran ripshod over those who provided the labor that enabled them to live on their giant ranches and live in luxury.  The West was and is ruled by hatred and contempt for the little people.  Wind invasion is a natural consequence of this.  The rich and powerful destroying the environment, running over anyone who gets in their way.  That, perhaps, is the reason why I laugh when I hear some moron say he’s “running off and buying that ranch in Wyoming”.  Jump right in buckaroo.  You’ll love the turbines, the liberal media, the rich ranchers and politicians and their contempt for your existence.  You won’t escape the insanity like you think you will because you’re too stupid to realize what the West really is.  Spend your life savings and live on a godforsaken prairie surrounded by a rancher’s “money for nothing, get your checks for free” turbine jungle while he lives in that giant mansion miles from the turbines.  You’re garbage—nothing but a source of money and labor with zero rights.  So go for it.

Yes, this is harsh.  It’s also real and true.  The contempt and hatred the wind energy has for humanity, the greed….The gold rush, oil rush, etc had NOTHING on these people.  Nothing.  This is pure hatred and greed.  Saving the planet is a lie to cover the pure evil in what is going on.  I repeat this often because people really do not understand just how evil this all is.  Love of money is very real and alive in the wind industry.  The difference between wind and say the oil rush is the complete lies and lack of any value for the “product”.  It’s equivalent to simply blowing up mountains for the heck of it and having the government send a check.  In fact, if we could convince the foolish public that blowing up mountains helped save the planet, the government probably would send a check and blow them up.  For an “advanced” society, we are complete failures and as self-destructive as they come.  Living with our heads in the sand as SOP.

So buy that little piece of paradise—you’ll get exactly what you have coming.  A turbine jungle, a liberal government and you’ll get to freeze in the winter as a bonus (the nine months of winter).  The real West is cruel, nasty and getting more contemptible by the minute.  Send that check tomorrow—lots are going fast.

I do realize many people are so far gone nothing makes a dent.  There was a woman who was told the full truth about where she was buying but she called everyone liars and mean for telling her what she did not want to hear.  Then she moved there—and all of the informaton was true just as she had been told.  Which may be why I now encourage people to dive in.  Saves time.

Perhaps the most ironic thing is so many of these turbine jungles give ranchers/oil men free money.  These turbines SUPPORT oil and gas.  How totally idiotic and ironic that these are praised by those who oppose oil and gas while the wind industry and government write checks to the oil companies and oil men themselves.  A ship of fools.

Where turbine blades go when they die and other thoughts

I’m sitting here waiting for the lights to pop off again. Seems that my power company cannot keep lights on when there’s wind, sun, rain, you name it. They’re great at destroying sage grouse habitat (their latest destructive binge goes right through prime sage grouse territory. Guess I’ll have to look for grouse survivors in other areas if I want to photograph them anymore. Same for the horned lizard, Wyoming’s soon-to-be-driven out state reptile. Heck, who needs a silly bird and a worthless reptile anyway….) but you can count on the lights popping off at least four or five times a month. I guess that’s the “new normal”, right?

P081019_0940

P081019_0940dThese are cell phone photos of the landfill’s latest “project”

The Natrona County Landfill was on the news trying to explain why they are burying wind turbine blades. The spokesperson said the landfill would get $675,000 for burying the giant fiberglass trash. I guess if you bury the mess, you can continue to lie to people about how ecofriendly the turbines are. Problem was, people saw the mess and made derogatory comments about wind turbines on social media. Being the liberal paradise we are, we CANNOT have that. So, the media trots out and obediently puts a “rebuttal” on the news. (Rebuttal being: But, but, but, but they gave us money….What we live for.)

The spokesperson said the landfill has millions of cubic yards of space available, which is why they won the wind trash lottery. Interesting, they are spending nearly a million dollars on upgrading a baler (in the past, the thing worked less than half the time. So embarrassing–town can’t even maintain a baler properly and spent months arguing over who should pay for the repairs) that COMPACTS trash. Hello????? If the landfill has millions and millions of cubic yards to bury wind trash, why are they spending a million on a new trash compactor? Oh, wait, I remember. Virtue signaling. Yep.

One good thing came out of this–NO MORE RECYCLING FOR ME!!! I was giving up plastic anyway (seems no one wants the mess Americans try to pawn off on them as “recyclable” plastic mixed with trash), so why bother? However, originally we were asked to recycle cardboard because there was not enough space in the landfill. Oooooppps. Seems that was not exactly the case, doesn’t it? So, the cardboard goes in the trash now. Maybe lying to the citizenry was not a good idea.

The landfill spokesperson said wind turbines recycle 90% of their “waste” (like wind isn’t a waste entirely…). Yes, by weight, they do. I realized then that landfills operate under the same insane procedures as all other government entities. Weight really does not matter. Only volume does. Hundreds of pounds of trash would not take as much space as the lighter, gigantic turbine blades. Volume-wise, burying those gigantic blades is far more space intensive than the towers, but that matters not. The steel weighs more than the fiberglass. Again, fantasy and lies are what keep the wind industry alive, besides graft, crony capitalism, etc. If reality were to smack these people….Never.

Actually, I must add there was a minor miracle recently. Michael Moore, known for Trump hating and a bad attitude, made a movie about renewables. Much to his, and everyone else’s surprise, it turns out renewables are not green and not clean. Of course, those of use who live next to them KNOW this, but those living in ivory towers do not know and generally do not care. I really want to commend him on actually finishing the movie and presenting it publicly. One can only imagine how bad things must be to have a previous “true believer” come out publicly against renewables in an age where such things are generally considered heresy. That may be the true miracle.
