Financing the Wind Industry

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: […]

The death of a state

This is a needed rant on the complete apathy of human beings to the stupidity and destruction of their states.  Waking people up is like getting blood from a turnip.  I truly believe people will end up freezing and starving from their own stupidity and apathy.   Going to our cabin (WHICH NO ONE SHOULD […]

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.

Recently, our paper ran an article discussing wind plants and how wind could provide jobs and keep farmers and ranchers in business. The article completely ignored how much of wind has nothing to do with providing a service but rather the government taking money from some people and giving it to others, by way of […]

PTC

In a move not at all unanticipated, the PTC was allowed a one year extension of robbing workers and damaging the environment while enriching the already rich. Environmentalists have no problem enriching oil companies and nuclear power companies as long as the environmentalists can continue their assault on the planet and pretend all of their […]

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.
