As BigWind and SolarSkillets(burn birds) spread across our state, we must become educated about their origins, their realities, their TRUE impacts on OUR land, OUR environments, OUR homes. Don't let your neighbors bury their heads in the sand over this. These Wind and Solar projects will last, in our neighborhoods, our towns, our regions, for … Continue reading The DARK side of BigWind and SolarSkillets
The Ohio Power Siting Board issued a conditional certificate providing Icebreaker Windpower, Inc. an opportunity to move forward with the construction of six wind turbines in Lake Erie. LEEDCo is not happy. Of course not, they are never happy unless they are in charge of the bargaining...unless they are the BigDog in the room...unless they are … Continue reading Ohio smiles while BigWind frowns on LeedCo decision
How many times have you been told that renewable energy is GREEN? Really? Read our home page for a reality check...If this picture doesn't shock you, especially when you read we will put 8,000/yr IN a landfill, then you are braindead.... Indestructible wind turbine blades can't easily be crushed, recycled or repurposed Instead they are hacked … Continue reading BigWind overflows LANDFILLs in USA
NOT TRUE!...But they have hoodwinked some Senators. Will they also hoodwink Treasury Secy' Mnuchin? Six U.S. senators, citing the COVID-19 pandemic, have asked for “safe harbor” deadline extensions to assist renewable energy developers to meet construction deadlines and qualify for tax credits. Lisa Linowes, executive director and spokesperson for The WindAction Group, said that is a lot of … Continue reading BigWind has been impacted by COVID-19
BigWind, is again, seeking stimulus $. Various senators have submitted a letter of request to Treasury Secy' Mnuchin. Such would qualify as the 13th federal subsidy extension for wind power, dating back to 1992. Yet back in 1986, amid California’s wind subsidies, a representative of the American Wind Energy Association (AWEA) stated: “The U.S. wind … Continue reading BigWind needs MORE stimulus$? Smoke screen!
A majestic American eagle dies a horrific death in NW Ohio. This bird represents our history as an independent country. Eagles are unique to North America. They are strong, majestic, bold, and faithful. They are a symbol of strength and determination. They are survivors, until faced with a foreign invader, aka BigWind. These monstrosities represent the … Continue reading BigWind Ohio causes Death of American symbol
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
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 spins well over 100 mph and when parts come loose (or ice), they fly fast and far.... A DAMAGED wind turbine halted a … Continue reading Could this flying piece of turbine kill your kid?
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
Is the dirty TRUTH about BigWind beginning to spread? The Audubon society, well respected for caring for birds, has been blatantly biased in FAVOR of BigWind, aka Bird Blenders, but here we read about a professor sharing the TRUTH to a room of them. Bats are VITAL to our species! Why? Just read this excerpt from … Continue reading BigWind is NOT Green, but ‘Wildlife in a Blender’ RED
Hallelujiah! Congratulations to the people of Northern Ohio, who have tirelessly fought against BigWind for a very long time. There are still other projects they continue to fight, but this small victory is needed. In particular, we recognize the wisdom exhibited by their county commissioners to revoke the Alternative Energy Zone, as these are magnets for … Continue reading Ohio has a BigWin against (another) BigWind
The US taxpayer has given the BigWindustry an amazing Christmas bonus now for almost 40 years. Congress is filled with wimps and liars. The President, although he has many accomplishments, should be ashamed that this deal was allowed to continue. The renewable industry mocks us, laughs at us, attacks us, and then we give them … Continue reading “Noncompetitive” BigWind can mock the taxpayer, again
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
Yet another example of WHY current Ohio BigWind setbacks are NOT safe for the public, particularly our schools filled with children. Unfortunately, some politicians prefer to listen to the $$ that BigWind waves (obtained via our taxpayer subsidies), rather than the constituents that reside amongst these industrial monsters..... Roads in the harbor opened again on Friday … Continue reading Ohio BigWind COLLAPSE halts traffic
Do you wonder if it is really true that BigWind could impact your quality of life? Aren't most noise and infrasound claims 'overstated' and 'exaggerated'?? Well, for those of us in Ohio, we don't have to look far for the truth. Van Wert citizens made it VERY clear to local and state politicians that BigWind HAS … Continue reading Could BigWind affect the Quality of Your life? Hmm…
