The Failure of Wind and Solar

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 […]

Power from Weather

It has happened. A massive blackout in South Australia, home of the “we are so proud of our renewable energy” state. Reports have claimed it was a “50 year” storm. For the weather illiterate, “50 year” storm does not mean a storm that occurs once every 50 years. It means that based on historical records, […]

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 […]

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 […]

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.
