Green Vs Clean

Motionless wind turbines at the National Renewable Energy Lab in Rocky Flats, Colorado – producing zero electricity.

The Boulder, CO coal fired power plant – supplying several cities with 24×7 reliable energy, and close to zero pollution.

Greens are shutting down the Boulder Power Plant next year, because they are convinced there is pollution spewing from it – in the same way that the Emperor was convinced he is wearing fine new clothes.

Progressives are complete whack jobs, incapable of rational thought and programmed to self-destruct.

    They are closing down a plant in the county south of me. It has all of the latest “clean coal” tech and produces virtually no pollution, but it is no longer profitable due to regulations.

    The selling point about the Emperor’s “new clothes” was that the Emperor would be able to determine which of his loyal minions were worthy of their station. It was simple–and depended upon whether or not the minion in question could SEE the Emperor’s fine clothing, and how well the minion could describe it. The village idiot running his mouth about “the Emperor has no clothes”–deserving!

    “We are two very good tailors and after many years of research we have invented an extraordinary method to weave a cloth so light and fine that it looks invisible. As a matter of fact it is invisible to anyone who is too stupid and incompetent to appreciate its quality.” http://deoxy.org/emperors.htm

    Isn’t it obvious? Global Warming skeptics are “too stupid and incompetent to appreciate” the quality of the Green Agenda!

    Coal is a big issue in the debate about climate change and I guess it will stay that way for at least some years from now on. The renewables are also on debate, since some of them seem not to be so climate friendly as people expected to be or as they were presented. I’m speaking about the offshore wind turbines, and here are some ideas on that: http://1ocean-1climate.com/offshore-wind-parks-and-mild-winters/ and that: http://oceansgovernclimate.com/baltic-2-another-climate-change-factor/.

  4. Valmont was doomed no matter CAGW, CPP. Too old, too expensive $/MWhs, the new CCPP at Cherokee, Comanche 3 et. al. were what drove it out of business.

    I’ve read elsewhere that sometimes when you see a single wind turbine among many turning, it is being cycled (using grid power) to keep moving parts lubricated. So, they not only don’t run all the time, sometimes they are sucking power.

    Just a few years ago I flew into Copenhagen and saw acres of wind turbines mainly offshore. None were turning. When I changed planes, crossing the tarmac to a twin turboprop, the air was dead calm. Yet the airport and the city seemed to be doing just fine w/o the spinning beanies.
    So, I thought to myself: “Self, just what good are these things?”

    Tom Steyer and the Sierra Club are dictating what privately owned power companies are allowed to operate in the USA.

    Did you hear the latest from Bernie Saunders?

    He is saying the terrorist attacks in Paris was caused by….

    Wait for it…

    GLOBAL WARMING!

    I nearly lost my lunch when I heard that.

    Many ridges in New England and in eastern and central Pennsylvania are blighted with these War of the World behemoths. My own anecdotal experience has been that less than one-half of them are operating at any given time. And I wasn’t aware, as a poster said above, that many of those that are apparently working are being powered from the grid to turn for lubrication, etc.

    These steel beasts will be monuments to our stupidity.
