BigWind thieves want more C$SH from YOU

Indications are that Big Wind will not stop until it gets a PTC extension! While it’s not clear Congress when Congress will take up another spending bill, AWEA is now circulating the attached letter for signatures. We should assume that some congressional members, especially Sen. Grassley (R-IA), are encouraging Big Wind. (ICYMI Grassley posted this … Continue reading BigWind thieves want more C$SH from YOU

Could this flying piece of turbine kill your kid?

Dear Ohio Power Siting Board and Ohio legislators, WAKE UP! Ohio wind turbine setbacks should NOT be shortened. BigWind does NOT belong next to schools and playgrounds! Setbacks should be increased.

BigWind will “educate” BirdBrains? Nope

I will apologize now, because there is nothing funny about this topic; however, there is something very funny about this Sierra Club quote below, "We are finding out that wind turbines are not as harmful to birds because they become educated" ?!? The birds? They become educated? No, they become DEAD.  Turbines are catastrophic for … Continue reading BigWind will “educate” BirdBrains? Nope

“Noncompetitive” BigWind can mock the taxpayer, again

The US taxpayer has given the BigWindustry an amazing Christmas bonus now for almost 40 years. Congress is filled with wimps and liars.

BigWind seeks to ‘silence’ Ohioans

"What Susan Munroe and the Ohio Chamber of Commerce have in common is that they both represent a big business intent on transforming entire communities from agricultural/residential to heavy industrial without the consent of the local citizens.

We have blogged about this before.  In order to build a turbine, there are hundred of gallons of oil, toxic chemicals, concrete, steel, etc. that is generated.  Turbines do not last forever and certainly, they do not last anywhere near that of a traditional nuclear or coal facility. What happens then? Recycled? NOPE, well maybe … Continue reading BigWind WILL die, and then new problems begin
