Revelation: Oklahoma says NO to BigWind because THERE IS NO WIND!

Ohio would be TURBINE FREE is we passed this same bill!Oklahoma votes on a wind moratorium where “wind potential is less than fair…according to a map by the Energy Department’s National Renewable Energy Laboratory”. Remember, Ohio is NOT even in the top 10 states for wind potential. Why are they here? Follow the money trail…

Senators voted 32-8 to pass Senate Bill 1440, which would halt wind developments east of Interstate 35 until  2017 in areas that have poor wind resources. A moratorium on wind farms in the eastern half of the state passed Wednesday in the Oklahoma Senate….

The bill places a moratorium on new wind farm developments east of Interstate 35 until 2017. It limits the moratorium to those areas where the wind potential is less than fair, according to a 2008 map by the Energy Department’s National Renewable Energy Laboratory….

“I just never have understood why you’d put a wind turbine in an area where there was poor wind,” Robson said. “You don’t mine where there’s no coal, and you don’t drill where there’s no oil.”…

“You’re not going to let anybody build a cesspool next to your house,” Robson said. “Oil and gas and coal mining all have regulations. Wind is one of the few industries with no protections for landowners.”
