In the year 2513, archeologists uncovered huge propellers on metal posts. There were more than 100 in just one are. They set about carefully digging up the propellors and towers, all the while speculating about how the propellers ended up buried.

Duane: Anyone here have any ideas on where these came from? Why would anyone put a bunch of propellers together in one place? And those towers—and concrete everywhere.

Glen: Maybe there were some kind of “raised village”. The propellers drove away the enemy?

Joe: Carl and Dennis found some huge metal boxes with wires and stuff at another site. Maybe the people lived in the boxes?

Glen: Another guy found similar boxes offshore in Old Europe. Said the boxes were full of furniture from the 21 century. Very creepy—living in a tiny metal box. Must have been a fearsome enemy.

Duane: There must be a hundred propellers here. Maybe we can find boxes here. Keep digging.

Mark: There are a bunch of small square boxes with all kinds of wires.

Duane: You mean like electrical wires?

Mark: Yeah.

Duane: This was around the time the Dark Period began. If there are wires and stuff, that might mean there was still electricity.

Al: We know the earlier years of the 21st century had electricity. They had lights, planes, phones, computers. A group in New Canada found some relics of this. All were very primitive by today’s standards.

Duane: Did anyone ever decipher the disks or drives?

Felix: Not yet. They have a crack team in Washington working on it.

Mark: Wires, propellers and towers—anyone think this might have been used to generate power?

Duane: Really, Mark, it was the 21st century. Why would they be using such primitive 19th century methods of making power?

Curt: We can’t really know due to the Dark Period.  It does seem very odd such an advanced society would use such primitive methods of making electricity, though.  I’m going with an enemy and the propellers repelled them.

Christmas time again

I read that that the various MSM suspects are out warning about Santa and global warming:

Laplanders are being affected by climate change due to more warming than elsewhere, reindeer pulling a heavy sleigh are emitting too much methane, and Santa is moving to the south pole, complete with an announcement that Santa has signed an agreement to relocate, making him a climate refugee and one paper saying belief in Santa may help children think counterfactually due to belief in flying reindeer (I think that last one is a positive, but not sure). Last year, reindeer were shrinking due to climate change.  All of this overlooks the fact that Santa built a workshop on floating ice out in the middle of nowhere.  I can’t see how global warming is a big deal to him, but who am I to say?

So, once again, this is the real threat to Santa Claus due to the global warming scam:

Go to the link to read the write up on this “clean” energy.  Then when someone mentions just how “green” wind plants are, after you try to stifle your uncontrollable laughter, you can mention what you learned here today.

Time to be brutally honest about wind “energy”

(sent as Letter to Editor)

Again, the topic of wind “energy” comes up. There are only four reasons to support wind (1) one cannot comprehend the situation, (2) willful ignorance, (3) political expediency and/or (4) monetary gain. Energy from weather is nothing but lie after lie. It’s not ecofriendly, it’s not “free, unlimited fuel”, it helps only to enrich the already rich, causes ecological damage in third world countries due to mining and refining the needed materials, and destroys birds and land areas.

 
The turbines save so little, if any, CO2 they couldn’t keep the temperature of the earth lower if we covered the planet with them. That, of course, would destroy millions of acres of wildlife habitats and human habitats , the steel, cement, etc would quickly deplete supplies for other things (wind is renewable, wind turbines are not) and still humanity would not have dependable energy. CO2 would be saved only because industries shut down. Why bother with the turbines–just mandate industries close and save us a lot of money.

 
People ask how those who don’t believe in catastrophic climate change are going to explain to their grandchildren how things work out. I want to know how those who robbed taxpayers, destroyed the environment and ran rip-shod over opposition are going to explain the disaster they have wrought upon their grandchildren. Dependable energy gave us our modern lifestyles. Take it away and poverty ensues. Gifting their grandchildren with energy from weather is wrong in so many ways. Demanding their grandchildren give up their future for worthless wind “energy” is cruel and immoral.

Next time you hear a wind “believer”, ask yourself which category that individual falls into.

Never buying M&Ms again

Seems the evil people at M&Ms are going to promote wind power, aka energy from weather.  As I have stated before, I consider anyone promoting the lie of wind to be downright evil and will not do business with them if I can avoid it.  Using candy to damage the environment, kill birds and destroy open spaces is evil.  There just no other word.  Only morally bankrupt people do this.  So, no more M&Ms.

Another interesting development:

Cowboy Fire sparked by wind turbine burning on 1,592 acres near Evanston

Wind turbine failure ignites prairie fire. I call it failure because bursting into flames is generally not the hoped for outcome. While it’s true that any “power plant” can catch fire, consider there are literally thousands of turbines per state, each with the ability to ignite and then ignite the area below them. Since they are 300 to 400 feet in the air, there’s no good way to put them out. A helicopter drop might help, at least to keep the fire from spreading, but there is a lot of flammable material in a wind turbine nacelle. Each one has the potential to ignite.

Can you hear me now?

“Hearing loss, nausea and headaches.” Due to sonic “attacks” in Cuba? Really? That is very, very, very similar to what is called Wind Turbine Syndrome. Yet Wiki and every green energy group labels it psychosomatic. So WHY are diplomats back in the USA and considered to have been injured from “sonic attacks”? No one in the USA considers such injuries to be legitimate when reported in conjunction with wind turbines. They hand out anti-anxiety medications and tell people they are just imagining the symptoms. What changed? Why suddenly worry about hearing loss, nausea and headaches and be so paranoid and crazy to call it due to a “sonic weapon”?

Iflscience! says “Alternatively, infrasound could be used. This low-frequency noise – again beyond the range of human hearing – causes fatigue, apathy, hearing loss, confusion, disorientation, and nausea, according to the US National Institutes of Health (NIH).” This is exactly what WTS is described as.

In fairness, there is no verification of actual hearing loss due to WTS, though I don’t know how much testing has actually been done. People who live near where wind turbines are going in should have their hearing tested immediately, for a baseline.
(The “weapon” in Cuba may have had ultrasonic components that caused the hearing loss.)

People suffering from WTS may want to have additional tests for central nervous system damage and mild traumatic brain injury. Do not tell the physician you live near turbines before the test. It will affect the reading of the results. (Note: This is not a condemnation of people reading the results.  It is an acknowledgment of human limitations.  EVERYONE is affected by confirmation bias.  It’s the reason for double-blind testing in science.)

One serious problem with all of this is the lack of baseline information. Before turbines go in, moving near turbines, or becoming a diplomat to a foreign country, get baseline data. It helps with a scientific case when the possible cause is something the government or industry does not want it to be.

The Church of the Windy Spires

The Church of the Windy Spires

In 1973, OPEC instituted an oil embargo. Denmark used oil for much of its electrical generation and was very hard hit. The government sprung into action, deciding that a century old technology with a fresh coat of paint could be the messiah they needed to save their country. Wind turbines, “clean”, intermittent, variable electricity was better than a blackout. Up went the beautiful white towers, saviors of Denmark.

The church might have withered and died, had it not been for James Hansen and his testimony before the Congress of the United States concerning global warming. Suddenly, the savior of Denmark became the savior of mankind. No more would filthy fossil fuels be used for generating electricity. Clean, pure, wonderful eco-friendly turbines would light up homes–at least some times. That was a problem. Fossil fuels were still needed. What to do? Wait, people would be willing to accept the spires if shamed. People are very cooperative that way.

Enter Al Gore, preacher and politician extraordinaire. With his political connections, he could push the “save the planet” meme. Thus, the Church of the Windy Spires was born. People were told wind had free fuel, that CO2 would be reduced and the planet saved.

However, there was still that pesky problem of needing the free energy but getting no delivery. Fossil fuels or hydro would be needed. Denmark got around this with the help of the European grid. The US had no such grid. Backup plants would still be needed. How to sell the church in the face of this reality?

Two ways:

(1) Electricity is invisible. Your average person has no idea how power works. Over time, the church leaders began began claiming certain industries were 100% renewable and using these companies to shame others who were not yet worshipping in the Church of the Windy Spires. Technically, these businesses were 100% renewable on paper only. They used the same electricity everyone else did, but paid for renewable energy. Thus, their lights stayed on, their air conditioning worked, and no one was the wiser.

(2) Enlisting journalists and scientists to make the claim that wind would eventually stand alone. One popular phrase was “the wind is always blowing somewhere”. Your average citizen would never question that –it seemed logical. If any did question, they were just called deniers or contrarians and ridiculed.

Over time, opposition to the alters of the Church began to arise. People did not share the belief that the church was clean and free energy was cheap. Electric bills went up as spires did. Why even former President Obama openly state bills would go up as people were forced to give up fossil fuels. A backroom flogging was considered, but Barack later saved himself with the signing of the Paris Accord, a huge boost for the Church of the Windy Spires.

It quickly became apparent that wind energy, and thus the Church, could never compete in a free market. Enter Senator Charles Grassley of Iowa, who, in the great tradition of Iowans, and in the name of saving the planet, convinced Congress to subsidize the Church of the Windy Spires heavily. Hallelujah! The money flowed like wine. The Church of the Windy Spires started popping up nationwide by the thousands. As everyone knows, once the government blesses an industry with money, the sky is the limit for growth. The Church of the Windy Spires grew and grew.

As an added bonus, the true believers of CAGW began using RPS’s (Renewable Portfolio Standards) to boost the expansion of the church. This was a legal requirement that a certain percentage of a state’s electricity come from renewables. Victory! Even more Churches rose from farmlands and mountain tops, took over virgin prairies and became a status symbol of caring about the planet and our future.

Unfortunately, the opposition continued to grow concerning the beautiful white spires. Some heretics claimed the spires were destroying scenic vistas. While this was very successful for the environmentalists fighting oil and gas, it was summarily dismissed concerning the Spires. The Church made certain that people who dared to try to save the areas once claimed as irreplaceable and of great importance to biodiversity by the environmentalists, yet were now being sacrificed to “save the planet”, were drowned out by praise for the Spires. Other tactics included claims of being a NIMBY, calling people backward and against progress (ironic, since the church was founded on a failed 19th century power source rejected in favor of fossil fuels) and the usual tactics employed when one’s church and free money is threatened.

There also arose questions of the churches harming wildlife, causing illness, decreasing property values and other such whining. The Church of the Windy Spires realized these claims could be called anti-science, anti “save the planet”, and so forth. This for a while seemed to quiet the effectiveness of those who opposed having the Churches in their back yards. Once again, shame works wonders when the facts are not on your side.

In order to avoid some negative publicity for the Church, the time-honored method of bribery was introduced. Huge sums of money were paid to “host” a Spire. It worked. It worked so well that the Churches could renege on the bribes, such as demanding reductions in property tax by claiming the wind had less value than was originally calculated for the Spires production. There were enough desperate, greedy people out there to fall for the ruse over and over again. Spires were coveted by those who adored getting their income without labor.

In 2015, generous Congressmen gave four years of government support to the building of the Spires. This invigorated the church, resulting in thousands more of the Churches being built. President Trump pulled out of the Paris accord but Congress was so very, very generous the Church of the Windy Spires was blessed with much continued government support, no matter the state of climate change or who was in the White House.

There continues to be opposition in some areas, but the Church, in its high virtuous mission of saving the planet marches onward, much like a steamroller, filling its coffers with cash and standing as unmistakable proof that with enough faith an entire planet can be drawn into what was once only a small con game. With the right marketing and political connections, people can be convinced to believe in almost anything. If you have any doubt, the Church of the Windy Spires stands as an eternal testament to mankind’s bottomless gullibility.

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.
