Today, June 15, is Global Wind Day, an annual worldwide event organised by by two scam organizations: EWEA (European Wind Energy Association) and GWEC (Global Wind Energy Council).
I call them scam organizations because wind energy itself is a scam. The only people who benefit from it are companies that make the turbines and the scammers who sell the idea to cities and municipalities worldwide.
This year's winning photo of the Global Wind Day competition, wind in the sky, should instead be called "Pie in the Sky" because any prospect of future success is unlikely ever to be realized. Wind power simply isn't reliable (1).
In New Jersey today there were counter-demonstrations against Global Wind day (2) by Americans for Prosperity, the state’s leading free-market, grassroots organization, who are holding counter-protests to oppose the push for expensive, inefficient and job-destroying offshore wind energy.
In my 2011 article Tobacco Smoke Enemas and ObamaCare I wrote that tobacco enemas were once used to infuse tobacco smoke into a patient's rectum for various medical purposes, primarily the resuscitation of drowning victims. Doubts about its efficacity led to the popular phrase "blow smoke up one's ass." And that is precisely what wind turbines blow: smoke up our asses.
Family Security Matters, 13 June 2012, Only if the Wind is Blowing
Wind is part of the Earth's atmosphere and, depending on whether it is blowing gently or strongly, there isn't a darn thing anyone can do about it. Except for measuring its velocity and direction, wind like clouds remains largely a mystery to meteorologists.
Not so for the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Control, the people who brought you the global warming hoax, asserting that carbon dioxide, a gas on which all vegetation depends, was raising the global temperature-largely as the result of burning coal and oil as sources of energy.
The Earth, however, has been in a natural cooling cycle since 1998 and the advocates of "green energy" have been in a tailspin, a death spiral of an inadequate capacity to deliver electricity and the inability to compete with more reliable, affordable, and traditional energy sources.
Simply put, wind and solar energy is a fool's dream and one that must be backed up by traditional energy sources at all times in the event the wind isn't blowing or during the nighttime or if clouds obscure the sun, causing solar energy to cease producing electricity. Only an idiot would want to be dependent on wind or solar to provide a reliable source of electricity.
The Renewable Energy Industrial Index (RENIXX) tracks the stock value of wind and solar companies. In May-though you did not read about it in the mainstream media-it announced that thirty of the largest renewable energy companies were trading at "an all- time low" and the index "had lost over 90% of its value since 2008."
So, naturally, the Sierra Club was eager to tell me about Global Wind Day and that my home state of New Jersey had the "potential to replace all the dirty coal and gas plants in the state." The distance between "potential" and reality is roughly the distance between New Jersey and the planet Neptune.
Americans for Prosperity, the state’s leading free-market, grassroots organization, will take on extremists in the environmental movement this Friday by holding counter-protests to oppose their so-called “Global Wind Day” push for expensive, inefficient and job-destroying offshore wind energy.
“Far left European groups and other radical elements of the environmental movement want to use this event to spread their propaganda about offshore wind energy,” said Steve Lonegan, state director of Americans for Prosperity’s New Jersey chapter. “We’re going to go toe to toe with them and refute their nonsense with the facts.
“This is all part of a very radical, globalist movement that will have damaging, lost-lasting effects on America’s economy and our ability to compete,” warned Lonegan. “Offshore wind is the most expensive way to produce electricity. The idea that offshore wind energy will be able to fuel our economy is utter lunacy.
“Here in the states New Jersey has become the epicenter in the battle over offshore wind,” added Lonegan. “The State has authorized a $100 million taxpayer-subsidized offshore wind boondoggle that will have devastating consequences for our economy and jobs. One analysis of this misguided scheme said it would result in the most expensive wind energy in the world!”
