Editorial : Convert Alaska To Green Energy

The EPA tells us that Fairbanks has unhealthy air due to people burning firewood in dead calm air, and that they will be fined.

But this situation could have been avoided. Solar cells could have been placed under the streetlamps, and windmills could have been installed.

    Solar panels work so well when you get 2 hours of sunlight each day. And windmills? They are at their best in dead calm air.

    They could grow sugarcane or algae for biofuel.

    Steve I found it amusing that the first paper listed at the link you provide is:

    ‘The First Decade of the New Century: A Cooling Trend for Most of Alaska’

    “We looked at the temperature trend of the first decade of
    the 21st century for the 20 first order stations in Alaska and
    found that 19 of the 20 stations showed a cooling trend. In
    Fig. (3) we plotted the mean values of these 20 first order
    stations and added the line of the best linear fit. The mean
    cooling of the average of all stations was 1.3°C for the
    decade, a large value for a decade.”

    It will be fun for Fairbanks residents to dig up the frozen corpses of EPA staff in spring with air quality measurement equipment still in their hands.

    All that wood burning produces real pollution (dioxins):

  6. Did anyone not see this coming? A couple of years ago, burning trees was considered carbon neutral. Now, it is not. What the real message is: FREEZE TO DEATH AND SAVE THE PLANET. More and more, the absolute hatred the EPA has for humans becomes more and more evident. Of course, the EPA intends to remain living and using up resources because they are the chosen ones. Apply for a job at the EPA now to save yourselves.
    (sarc, in case anyone can’t tell)

    Relocate the EPA to Northern Alaska and require their buildings to be 100% solar and windpower!!!

    Oil, oil every where,
    Yet nary a drop for heat to share,
    Less for our neighbor do we care,
    than doting over the polar bear.

    Anchorage is in the process of building wind chargers that will reportedly supply 25% of that city’s electric power. http://www.adn.com/2012/07/18/2547389/turbines-rising-at-fire-island.html
