BigWind spending Big$ to influence YOU this election season

This article states that the industry will ‘officially’ begin a brainwashing plan aimed at the American public.  After throwing billions of taxpayer$ at the industry, they go into full attack mode in order to protect the gifts. This is not a new game, but simply now it is official, as they have formed a 501c group to spread the lies.

AWA defines itself as an “independent and bipartisan” advocacy group focused on “educating the public on federal and state issues relevant to the development and benefits of wind energy,” the statement said.

The group says it has a “seven figure” budget to begin its activities….
