Letter: Renewable energy cannot handle demand

 

Big Give 2017 | The Columbus Foundation

Recent Dispatch editorials say Ohio is “moving backward in energy production,” but how is this possible? Moving backward, is that not what renewable energy is? Hats off to the Ohio Power Siting Board and Public Utilities Commission of Ohio staff for looking at the facts rather than the usual “Let’s use renewables because they are green” mentality. Wind and solar are not the answer; instead they are more like “optional equipment” — power that’s nice to have but

Jarrett Stepman: California blackouts are a self-inflicted mess – Don’t just blame PG&E for the new Dark Ages

Now, in large parts of California, if you want to keep the lights on during the blackouts, you better have a flashlight or a gas lamp. Twenty-first century green dreams have led to 19th-century realities.

Report: Wind PPA Prices Are On The Rise – North American Windpower

Spoiler Alert! Wind power is not price competitive, I repeat, they are not price competitive without the burden of tax payers making up the difference! Geez…when are we ever gonna learn?!? 🙄

the new buzzword is community “resilience”, this is the Left creating a Trojan Horse (video included)

AWED Friends:

FYI, the new buzzword is community “resilience.” Like its sibling “sustainability” this is the Left creating a Trojan Horse that is intended to fool trusting, well-intended, and unaware citizens. Hopefully that will not be any of our readers.

In a Reversal, Wind Power Industry Wants More U.S. Tax Credits

Webmaster’s Note: So, if it takes our tax dollars to make it competitive…then it isn’t competitive! Common sense, something that both liberals, politicians and wind developers are in short supply of..

Less than a year after the U.S. wind industry swore off federal tax credits, its top lobbyist wants another go at the incentive that helped it become the cheapest source of new energy in much of the world.

Those who sign on are likely to receive some form of compensation — but only if they agree to all the terms. One of these proposed agreements was obtained by the OBSERVER after a public hearing regarding the…

15 myths about wind energy..

What is Energy Denial?

 

The fiftieth anniversary of the first Earth Day of 1970 will be in 2020. As environmentalism has gone mainstream during that half a century, it has forgotten its early focus and shifted toward green capitalism. Nowhere is this more apparent than abandonment of the slogan popular during the early Earth Days: “Reduce, Reuse, Recycle.”

The unspoken phrase of today’s Earth Day is “Recycle, Occasionally Reuse, and Never Utter the Word ‘Reduce.’” A quasi taboo on saying “reduce” permeates the lexicon of twenty-first century “environmentalism.” Confronting the planned obsolescence of everyday products rarely, if ever, appears as an ecological goal.

The Calm Before the Wind Storm – LTE

To some it may feel as though the wind turbine controversy has faded away. But even now a lot of forces are building behind the scenes which will soon let loose in a flurry of activity. The adjudicatory hearing for the Republic Wind project is scheduled to begin on Nov 4th. This will be the only chance for people who live in and near the project to have any meaningful say in the matter. And, the way the process is structured by current law, it is limited to a few people and they have to raise tens of thousands of dollars for lawyers just to be able to have their voices heard. This is the sad Continue reading The Calm Before the Wind Storm – LTE
