    Great Britain finally figured it out, as has Germany and Denmark.

    Wondering when the United States will.

    • Stephen Richards says:

      Not GB !! Not those who can change it. Germany are just at the cusp. France is still in the dark age and will remain there until they are bankrupt (about 5 yrs)

    Cost vs Benefit is a concept that is totally foreign to many governments; most apply the “(seen to be) doing the right thing” principle instead. They wouldn’t last a microsecond in a corporate world.

      EXACTLY! Like, it’s “the right thing to do to allow public employees to unionize and to pay them twice what the market could bear, and give them massive pensions for sitting on their rears most of the time.” Until we go belly up.

      Or cities that say “let’s buy $3 million hydrogen buses to stop climate change because it’s the right thing to do, even though we could buy buses for maybe 200k that would get the job done just as well.” Yup, “let’s do the right thing, until we’ve used up all the other peoples’ money we can, and are broke. Then we’ll probably get a federal bail out! Live is good!”

    The AGW fiasco shows how humans were “dumbed down” so “global elitists” could rule after Stalin emerged victorious from WWII to save the world from nuclear annihilation by:

    1. Forming the United Nations in October 1945, and
    2. Forbidding knowledge of the force that destroyed Hiroshima

    Cue the “but we have to bear the cost of cleaning up our song planet” idiots. Ask them for examples of our planets obvious impending doom, and what will be their reply?

    “Global climate change!”

    EEEEdiots!”

      And more natural gas from Australia.. (on that link above)

      That Hopeless fossil fuel addict will be happy :-).

    Who owns and controls media also controls public opinion (mass of population is so uneducated that anything out of TV screen is “Truth”…), which in turn controls politicians via elections. This is why so stupid and monumental lies alike AGW, Green energy, US exceptionalisms, world domination and evil russians can sustain.
    But this tortuous way of Democracy misuse is not the relevant example to attract other nations curb to democracy. Which alternates are?

  6. Stephen Richards says:

    I don’t know how they work out these renewable sums at all but I do know that the cost of this farce will be much, much higher.

    “California’s wind farms — then comprising about 80% of the world’s wind generation capacity — ceased to generate much more quickly than Kamaoa. In the best wind spots on earth, over 14,000 turbines were simply abandoned. Spinning, post-industrial junk which generates nothing but bird kills.”

    So who pays to clean up the mess?

    According to Chis The Wind Barron that isn’t a problem. So why were these just left standing?

    But wait — isn’t wind energy all about protecting the environment?

    Altamont’s turbines have since 2008 been tethered four months of every year in an effort to protect migrating birds after environmentalists filed suit. According to the Golden Gate Audubon Society, 75 to 110 Golden Eagles, 380 Burrowing Owls, 300 Red-tailed Hawks, and 333 American Kestrels (falcons) are killed by Altamont turbines annually. A July, 2008 study by the Alameda County Community Development Agency points to 10,000 annual bird deaths from Altamont Pass wind turbines. Audubon calls Altamont, “probably the worst site ever chosen for a wind energy project.” In 2004 the group unsuccessfully challenged renewal applications for 18 of 20 Altamont wind farms.

    Stay tuned for more skeletons of the green energy movement, coming to a community near you. Please warn your fine-feathered friends. — MOONBATTERY

      Not sure if this is why about a hundred large windmills on I-8 in CA near Pine Valley were dead still about a week ago. Looked like there was no wind to me, but in any case, I hope the backup power for the windmills was working. because they were generating Watts equal to Mr. Blutarsky’s GPA at the time.

    Where is that Windy Barron to answer the questions put by the Centre of Policy Studies?
    I am ashamed to say he says he is British.

  9. wondering if England is also building natural gas powered turbines to spin up when wind isn’t blowing fast enough (90% of time) or the sun isn’t shining (70% of time) (night + clouds); will they buy gas from Russia? National Security issue?
