The Barack Obama Legacy Wind Plant 2

Not to be outdone by the Barack Obama Legacy Wind Plant (aka Chokecherry/Sierra Madre), a company out of Venezuela and backed by China is constructing The Barack Obama Legacy Wind Plant 2 (there are too many names for the tiny pieces of the wind plant used to get special treatment as a “small” electric provider […]

Living in a fantasy world

It’s Friday, the last day of June.  The uninformed who comment that wind turbines on the plains make sense because the wind blows all the time have been shown to be wrong much of the month. Yesterday, the wind blew above 8 miles per hour for less than 6 hours. Seventy-five percent of the day, […]

The Magic of Wind

The Magic of Wind 1. Always refer to wind energy as “energy from weather”. It makes clear exactly how unreliable and useless it is. 2. Always call them “wind plants”. They are NOT farms.

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.
