Wind Power Blows

This is why I don’t want one of these in My Backyard! Nuke Power Plan, fine I have one of those (our locale here in the Swamp is inside the 10-mile radius of the Limerick Generating station).

Can you imagine what it takes to put out a fire way up there especially in a rural community where the Fire Fighters are volunteers and equipped with vehicles more equipped to handle structure fires. My township only a few years ago invested in a Ladder Truck that allows the volunteers to get up to the third floors, which is the size of the largest structure in about 100 square miles of here.

And what about all the toxic gas given off by the burning of the fiberglass turbine blades? I hear that stuff is really bad for you.

And since I am a “real” environmentalist I despair at the deaths of defenseless and innocent Birds that are killed by the hundreds of thousands (in this country alone) by Wind Turbine blades.

Victims of Green Idiots:

I read somewhere that more than 1 million birds are killed in Spain alone and that country is only the size of Texas. And did you hear how many real-money-paying Jobs were killed by that Green revolution there!! Yeah, 2.2 real jobs are lost for every Green Job created and since the Government has to subsidize those Green Jobs the true impact is far greater since you have to seize more Tax money from the Working to funnel into the subsidized Green Job to keep it around. As soon as that Government money runs out, the Job ends and the person with that Job goes on Public Assistance.

That is another great benefit to the Green Revolution that no one wants to talk about.

There are lawsuits a plenty filed by Environmental groups trying to stem the tide of Bird Deaths. It’s almost comical. (More here and here.)

Now the reason for this post is all the bad press that Nuke Power is getting thanks to the Lefty-Media and their willingness to exploit the horrific incidents in Japan with the Fukushima Nuke Plant. The Media has been using anti-nuclear proponents as on-air experts on the Nuclear Power industry then using the air time to bash that industry. Their effort is to kill this industry and make sure not another nuke plant gets an operating permit in this country.

All the while, the Government Green Winnie’s led by the Dear Leader hisself pushes “re-newable” and wind energy. None of that works. Not unless you carpet the country with Wind Turbines and Solar Panels. And I mean carpet because at the efficiency rate of Wind technology (a mere 35%) you need many tens of thousands to replace the Nuke output.

And oh by the way, Wind Turbines do not reduce countries Carbon Output. The Dutch and now the Germans have released data that show for all their efforts to build and install Wind Turbines they have not reduced their Carbon foot print by “a single gram”. So, there goes that excuse.
Then there is the noise pollution, the shadow pollution and the stray voltage issue (I kid you not, cattle have been killed by the stray voltage generated by the turbines which are not properly grounded or their Earth Grounds become disconnected).

And every now and then the towers collapse.

Jeez, these things are as troublesome as a fair election in Chicago!!

BT: Jimmy T sends.

I'm agnostic on wind power unless we're talkin' about massive gub'mint subsidies, which I do NOT like. That said, we have a lot of wind farms in my area (as one would expect, given I live in one of the windiest places on the planet) and I haven't read a single bad thing about them in eight years. There are a LOT of turbines still going up, too.

I do agree with the shadow pollution. For shame!

I wonder if they would become more profitable if they just put feather pillow factories next to these things. Save on feather transport, reducing the carbon footsy prints, and of course it would make it

Wait for it...
