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. Wind turbines do not grow from seeds. Sixty 400 foot screaming metal towers are NOT a farm. They are an industrial […]

Wind Myths

This is a letter I sent to my local paper. Wind myths   “We should use all forms of energy.” Burning buffalo chips is a form of energy—a renewable one at that. Can we look forward to a new line of buffalo chip stoves? Wyoming is claimed to not like regulations, but this is blatantly […]

No support for wind

In Wyoming, Senate File 71 is calling for Wyoming to purchase power from only one of six sources—and wind and solar are not on the list except for individual usage. By 2018, 95% of energy must come from approved sources, 100% by 2019. If they did not, a $10/megawatt hour penalty would be applied. Sponsors […]

When science and math divorce

From Science of Doom’s series on renewables, listed as “A brief summary of reality:” The fact that at some times of peak demand there will be little or no wind or solar power doesn’t mean it provides no benefit – you simply need to “backup” the wind / solar with a “dispatchable” plant, i.e. currently […]

Recent articles I have found interesting

I have listed the link and first paragraph or my own commentary for each article.  Click on the link to read the rest of the story.  Many of these articles are found on https://notalotofpeopleknowthat.wordpress.com.  I recommend heading over to the blog for more interesting posts on renewables, energy and global warming. http://www.bbc.com/news/uk-northern-ireland-30671607 “An investigation is continuing […]

Clearly in the dark on how wind and solar work

Saw this today on the Greenie Watch blog: http://poorrichardsnews.com/post/99998945868/comedy-gold-coal-plant-protest-deflated-by-miserable This is the only footage showing the failure of the inflatable coal plant.  Is anyone surprised? On other reports, the increase in rates was reported.  One had the monthly fee going from $10.50 to $15.  I’ll trade with them any day.  My monthly fee is $20 […]


Update:  December 6, 2013 Yesterday’s Casper Star Tribune had this: http://trib.com/business/energy/in-growing-trend-wyoming-wind-project-seeks-permit-to-kill/article_74a750fc-ed4f-53c5-86a9-37f358b4bbb6.html And another source: http://wyomingpublicmedia.org/post/eagle-take-permitting-gets-underway-wyoming-wind-farm The answer to the number of dead eagles (not including dead bats and other “non-protected” birds) is 36 to 64 estimate for the first 500 turbines.  Of course, it’s very unlikely the number will actually be that low.  That’s the […]


Wandering Words


“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.
