Take a good look at the picture above. It’s from Nature.com
- How some wind turbines hog the breeze
The nature.com article brings some interesting points we’ll get into a bit later.
Look at the view in the background, now spoiled by a wind farm. Funny how the very people who have always talked about keeping our wilderness pristine and not defacing nature, now want to blanket the fruited plains with these wretched tinker toys. There are areas of the country where humans are not allowed to walk for fear of spoiling nature. But we can do this?!
What’s worse, in 15 years, when the lack of value these things hold is fully understood, these monstrosities will be broken rotting hulks blighting our landscape from sea to shining sea. The battle then will be who is responsible to get rid of them all. How many billions will that cost?!
And, oh, by the way…in 2009, Barry Hussein spent $80 billion to convert us to a green economy. What happened to all that money? Who got it? We know a bunch of his donors opened a phony energy company, took billions then split with all the money. Certainly we have never seen $80 BILLION worth of value. If we did there would be wind turbines and solar panels on every median of every highway in the country. $80 BILLION! We’d already be up to our eyeballs in old batteries and solar panels we can’t get rid of (That’s in our future now).
I regret that this was not my first installment in the series. The urgency of it has no equal. The first thing the new congress needs to do is rescind, in its entirety, the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA). Defending it, people have said in effect, that it won’t reduce inflation right away, but eventually it will. That’s bullshit on an epic scale. And we MUST end all subsidies for these wretched tinker toys.
Left to their own devices, the Left will continue this insane spending. By the time any small blip in downward pressure prices might ever feel from the IRA we will have been deluged by further vote buying in the interim. there will be NO reduction in inflation from a single Biden initiative; certainly not this one.
And what the Regime claims as anti-inflationary is exactly the opposite, as is all government spending. You cannot reduce prices; even on a sector level by sending a tidal wave of newly printed money into that sector. You directly CAUSE inflation. That law is as certain as gravity.
“Green” spending eats up almost all of this bill. And the photo above demonstrates the folly of how the Regime intends to go “green”.
I’ve been telling people this for years. Wind is a form of energy. While you cannot destroy that energy, you can convert it. That’s what wind turbines do. They convert wind (kinetic) energy into mechanical energy and then into electrical energy.
But no one is asking, “What happens to the wind?” And that is where the problems with wind farms immediately cascade.
The Nature.com article points out the wind farms, on land and at sea, compete with each other to capture wind. If you put up a multi-billion dollar wind farm intended to grab the prevailing winds, and I put one as many as 10 miles upwind of yours, your turbines will not run at capacity. They will not generate the electricity they were designed to put out.
When someone else puts up a farm upwind from me, now my turbines are crippled. And so it is going today. This alone should point out the folly of wind power on an industrial level. We’ve been told that wind is a natural and unlimited source of power. But it’s not. It’s very limited. And it is notoriously unreliable even without the competing tinker toys.
More important than wind scammers robbing each other of the primary resource, there are natural considerations at work here. Surface winds have a very important job to do. Soil, seed, bugs, birds and the holy of holies, temperatures rely heavily on the natural movement of surface winds.
Nature.com reports that areas downwind can see productive wind substantially reduced as far away as 50 kilometers (31 miles) by a large wind farm. The scammers and their cheerleaders want to build wind farms all over the US! This must not happen. It’s ugly. It’s unreliable. It’s self-defeating.
Do you want to go private with wind and solar? Fine!
A case to be made for the private wind and solar systems. It is certainly a good thing if you or I wish to have a transfer switch to use or sell the power we produce onto the grid. You could sink a well and use wind or solar to water your garden or augment household water.
But that comes with a reasonable condition. YOU pay for it! If you sell power onto the grid, THAT is your incentive. That is your subsidy. Your decision to use sun and wind for YOUR power is YOUR business. AND you pay to dispose of the old batteries and solar panels. You neighbors will appreciate you maintaining YOUR wind turbine as well. If it gets squeaky or rattles and your neighbors beat the shit out of you, I’m with your neighbors. They are not a part of your personal crusade.
I said, in a previous post, you bring solutions while criticizing existing folly.
And here’s a bullet–proof solution. You’ll still get blow back. This has been the best idea since the 1950’s and people have fought it constantly. The “Greenies” fight it because they are clueless as to what is actually good for the environment. Their passions are founded in politics and polishing their activist resumes, not reality. You’ll also get push back from the nuclear industry as well because this idea IS nuclear but doesn’t net as much profit and doesn’t produce fuel for nuclear weapons. But it does some really awesome shit.
We’ll get into what it is and the mind-blowing benefits of this technology in the next segment. Pay attention!!! The next segment is the most critical discussion we should be having right now.
Trust me. You really do want to read the next segment!
People you should be screaming at: Find your Republican SERVANTS on this link. CALL them and tell them to get hot on this NOW! Hell, call the Dems too. You might find one or two who won’t get loose stools over it.
