Wyoming joins with other states in killing eagles, enriching oil men and corporate millionaires and destroying the environment. The wind plant in Boxelder canyon is being started, even without lawsuits settled and take permits issued. Why? Because if the thing is not operational by the end of 2016, there’s no contract demanding the power company buy the energy at an outrageous price. Thank you government intervention.
People always said Wyoming was only interested in money while developing oil. Not true—oil heats homes and powers cars. Wind plants are useless and only interested in government handouts. The wind industry cannot live without government support. It’s all about holding people at gunpoint and taking their money and destroying the environment for a huge check. It’s as immoral as one can get, considering everyone of these people KNOW wind is just damaging the environment while making them rich. These people make oil companies look like saints. They lie about the usefulness of wind, they steamroll over people and put in the plants (never mind the blessed UN that they so love called wind plants a violation of human rights—like they care about human rights if it stands in the way of money grubbing). I am tired of all this RICO act stuff concerning global warming. How about a RICO investigation into who profits from destroying the environment with useless wind turbines?
I have not gone back to Boxelder Canyon since the project was announced. It was a beautiful drive, filled with wildlife and flora. Now, it will be a shrine to Al Gore and his lies and the greed and lack of caring by those who lie about wanting to save the environment. I don’t know where the turbines will be located, nor will I ever know. It’s so disgusting and vile I will never return to any part of the area.
