Things I’ve run across

Wind energy cured cancer—at least the kind caused by EM lines. Greens protested far and wide about power lines causing brain tumors, cancer, etc and now they want the country buried under the lines so we can use expensive, limited wind and solar power. Who knew wind turbines could cure cancer?

(Wait, you say the greens were wrong about the cancer? Really? That means they most certainly can be, and are, wrong about global warming and “free fuel”, intermittent, wild-life killing, land destroying power sources.)

The blogger of these articles is a believer in global warming, but also a practical person who recognizes that sometimes the “cure” being recommended is worse than the “disease”.  His articles are always interesting.

“Considering 67% of the electricity in the US comes from fossil fuels and another 19% from nuclear (EIA 2014), I would guess Apple is completely clueless as to how much of their energy comes from non-renewable sources. With 86% of their energy needing to be replaced by 19th century technology for 21st century purposes, perhaps Apple should go into the miracle business and forget computers.”

This is a comment I made concerning Apple and it’s vow to go 100% renewable.  What this really means is:  We are going to do some slight of hand accounting maneuvers and pretend we aren’t tied to the grid.  Unless Apple has NO power lines from the grid whatsoever, this 100% stuff is a lie, pure and simple.  Yet it sells.  How did people become so uninformed and so inclined to believe in unicorns and fairies?  How did business become such liars about their actions?

*************************

I have been in a rather foul mood lately.  Seems the rich and powerful have run ripshod over the citizens of Wyoming and are pouring concrete by the tons for a wind plant that was not to be built.  Oh wait, rich and powerful get whatever they want and a government handout is what they want.

Most disturbing is these plants enrich OIL companies.  How completely ignorant and clueless must one be to want OIL companies out of business while advocating for giving them government handouts?

If anything will cause the extinction of many animals and birds while doing mosterous damage to the environment, it’s the greedy, self-serving leeches who claimed to care about the planet.  They are bleeding the world dry putting up bird killing useless turbines whose manufacture mines billions of tons of materials mostly in countries with few if any environmental regulations.  There is no care or concern about the planet whatsoever.  It’s all greed, greed, greed and control.  These are deplorable people.

***************************

In the vein of deplorable, the turbines to the south of my house have sat idle most of the last two months.  That “windy Wyoming” rule of thumb is what we call worthless.  Wind has only exceeded 10 mph for perhaps a week in eight.  It has been calm, calm, calm.  So all that damage done and NOTHING in return.  That is so wrong.  So very wrong.

NOT A LOT OF PEOPLE KNOW THAT

“We do not believe any group of men adequate enough or wise enough to operate without scrutiny or without criticism. We know that the only way to avoid error is to detect it, that the only way to detect it is to be free to inquire. We know that in secrecy error undetected will flourish and subvert”. - J Robert Oppenheimer.
