How green turbines are not

Richer rich, killer cats

Wyoming wind tax will not be increased—seems no one wanted their schools to have more revenue, so the proposal died. Interesting that parents felt cutting school budgets was the way to go. I hope these people don’t now complain about school cuts since it is exactly what they wanted. Somehow, since many people believe in […]

Not in my backyard, but yours is okay to violate

From an article in EcoWatch by Laura Beans: “This is not about the technical definition of fracking, it’s about whether we’re going to have an honest, reality-based, debate about the costs of our energy policies,” said co-host Ari Melber. “And look, those costs can get pretty ugly: unsightly water towers, fracking wells, strange smells and […]

Mass extinctions? Maybe due to environmentalist’s policies.

There has been much talk about “climate refugees’ due to alleged climate change such as sea level rise. There are threats of extinction of species and even huge stretches to make climate change the “reason” for extinctions of certain rodents. There is virtually no talk about refugees and extinctions due to environmentalists. What refugees, you […]

Kill the eagles, enrich the profiteers

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 […]

Fire around turbines, Turbine parts

There was a prairie fire last fall that burned all around the turbines north of Casper.  Pictures: This was a fast moving grass fire that started at the municipal landfill and spread due to 50 mph winds.  No one will admit guilt, and most of the county residents are angry with the whole mess.  The […]

Wyoming has wind so let’s make power—NOT

Today the wind is blowing 48 mph at the airport.  Cool, you think, those turbines are making electricity.  Except they aren’t.  Many have hit cutout speed and are not moving at all.  A week ago going to Utah, I notice that phenomena in the turbines near Evanston.  Many were not turning, probably due to the […]

It’s a New Year

Seems I have been neglecting this blog as of late.  Perhaps it’s because wind energy has slowed to a near halt in my state.  Yes, the billionaire from Colorado continues to try and destroy the prairie in southern Wyoming by installing 1000 bird-chomping, bat killing eco-crucifixes* along I-80, but the reluctance of California to buy […]

Wandering Words

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.
