America blighted by industrial wind

Green gangsters rip us off while enriching the 0.1% and trashing the environment

“America is being auctioned off to the highest bidder.” Donald J. Trump

windbirdkillA recent Joe Mahoney article, NY looks to the wind to replace its fossil fuel diet, was full of half-truths and misinformation.

There is nothing “free,” “clean” or “green” about industrial wind.  Quite the contrary: the true costs of industrial wind development are astronomical. Yet, the wishful thinking of Governor Andrew Cuomo, Attorney General Eric Schneiderman, “green” ideologues, and “renewable” energy hustlers and subsidy seekers who benefit from this massive taxpayer and ratepayer rip-off has been repeated by countless “journalists” without question for years now.

Mahoney’s article highlighted Cuomo’s approval of the proposed wind factory off Montauk, NY. It claimed: “The offshore ‘wind farm’ could be a symbol of how the state can meet Cuomo’s ambitious goal of getting half of New York’s energy from carbon-free sources by 2030.  Now those sources represent about 23% of the state’s energy draw.”

The statement is grossly misleading and inaccurate.

New York State’s emissions-free hydro power (including what it hydroNYimports from Canada) already supplies approximately 23% of New York State electricity generation all by itself. New York State’s emissions-free nuclear power supplies approximately another 30% of the state’s electricity generation. “Other Renewables” (wind,solar, biofuels, geothermal) now provide a measly 3% (U.S. Energy Information Administration or EIA).

Clearly, current hydro and nuclear power supplies in New York State alone already exceed Cuomo’s emissions-free target of 50%. But for some reason emissions-free nuclear is not counted toward New York’s “emissions-free” goal.

ninepointsMost infuriating for New York State taxpayers and ratepayers is the fact that New York State was already getting approximately 50% of its electricity from emissions-free sources (19% from hydro + 29% from nuclear + 1% from “Other Renewables”) way back in 2000 – before Governor Cuomo & Co. began throwing billions of taxpayer and ratepayer dollars into the wind, plastering rural New York with these bird-slaughtering lemons, as reported by MasterResource.org.

Scientific proof MIA

As our government officials continue to throw billions of dollars into the wind, the key question that needs to be asked by everyone is this:

Where is the Scientific PROOF that wind energy is a net societal benefit?

The answer is that there is no such scientific proof. Zero. Zip. Nada. None.

However, there is much proof that development of sprawling, unreliable, subsidized, mandated industrial wind factories has been vastly detrimental across the nation and the world.

So much so that President Obama and his Fish & Wildlife Service eaglehad to approve 30-year EAGLE-KILL permits specifically to accommodate the bird-slaughtering wind industry – letting it off scot free for butchering our wildlife.

Governor Cuomo’s pie-in-the-sky ‘green’ energy policy is bereft of any realistic assessment of the expensive lessons already learned in Europe and elsewhere as a result of pushing these ‘renewable’ energy policies.

antioilResults include, but are not limited to:  “skyrocketing” electricity rates, industries fleeing, two to four jobs lost for every ‘green’ job created, destroyed habitats and countryside, birds and bats slaughtered, lost property values, health issues, utter civil discord among people forced to live with these behemoths, and increasing numbers of people being thrust into ‘energy poverty.’

All this as a result of the same ‘green’ mess that Governor Cuomo, President Obama, Hillary Clinton, and the Democratic Party continue to push.

While they demonize fossil fuel use and promise to rid us of this vital energy, the truth is that the availability of reliable, affordable power thanks to fossil fuels is directly correlated with greatly improved health and longevity here in the USA, as Alex Epstein explains in his book, The Moral Case for Fossil Fuels.

It’s all about the money!

WHY do they continue to push such an obvious failure as industrial wind, you ask?  Simple: “It’s all about the money!’

Manhattan Institute scholar Robert Bryce recently reported that billionsthe wind industry has garnered $176 BILLION of crony-capitalist cash here in the United States. It’s no wonder the American Wind Energy Association spends over $20 million per year lobbying for more of the same!

Big Wind and the Big Banks who back them are playing the system to tap into taxpayers’ and ratepayers’ wallets, while the crony-politicians who enable the whole dastardly deal get hefty ‘campaign donations’ in return. The greatest Ponzi schemes of all time pale in comparison to the eco-heist these Green Gangsters are pulling off.

Industrial wind was initiated in the United States by ENRON as a tax shelter generating scheme. Nothing about that has changed. Big Wind enriches the 0.1% at taxpayers’ and ratepayers’ expense.

Just ask Warren Buffett, who said: “We get tax credits if we build ‘wind farms.’ That’s the only reason to build them. They don’t make sense without the tax credits.”

Republican Presidential candidate Donald Trump was absolutely correct when he underscored the critical need to address our nation’s economic demise, saying: “America is being auctioned off to the highest bidder.” The Industrial Wind Blight across America exemplifies this sad reality!

TAKE ACTION!

callContact your Congressional Representatives. Tell them to stop wasting our money on the environmentally destructive consumer fraud that is industrial wind energy.  If they won’t, vote the bums out!

    Spot on, who can contemplate the future as solid with the vagaries of wind energy. Should anyone wish to prove otherwise please explain how load balancing can be effective without load shedding

    Wind that is lowering the cost of ‘lecktrick in TX to less than zero on some nights.

    Cheap ‘lecktrick: a blight.

    As an independent wildlife researcher I know how bad things have become in this country. Thanks to a corrupt Clinton administration, the wind industry has been able to hide most of their wind energy slaughter from the public.

    In 1997 Bill Clinton changed the Freedom of Information Act to protect wind energy interests and help them conceal their industrial carnage to highly protected species. The Clinton Administration also silenced all USFWS employees with prison terms for those releasing information not approved by the Agency Superiors.

    Read about all this in the article “Harvesting Eagles”. In this article you will also discover that the Denver eagle repository was set up in 1997 by the Clinton administration to handle the flood of new carcasses coming in from wind energy
    developments. Since then more than 33,000 eagle carcasses have been secretly shipped to this facility. Thanks to Bill Clinton, the origin and cause of death for all these eagles will remain a top secret until our laws are changed.

    Wind turbines in eagle habitat are their number one killer and this is being covered-up. Even so a proposal has been put forth by the Obama administration to allow the wind industry to slaughter 6200 eagles annually.

    Here is a good summation from my years of investigation into the so called “Green” renewable energy sector. I started my research into this in 2008 because of my concern for the raptors being slaughtered off by wind turbines. I have seen the rigging of laws, rigging of court cases, agency rigging, lying at a congressional hearing, rigging of reported wind energy outputs, and a consistent pattern of deliberately producing fraudulent research. All of which together are really a form of treason selling out our country.

    The Clintons were right in the middle of it in the 1990’s and they still are.

    America is being bullied and blighted by industrial wind. As it is, these self-righteous green bastards roll into small town America with their billions and an army of mercenary henchmen daring anyone to stop them. In the process, truth and justice for these communities becomes non-existent.
