I thought for sure this was going to be a thread about Bill Maher.
When I read the headline, I thought “big Wind” was Obama.....
Defeated proposition 3 in Michigan would have mandated that 25% of our electricity come from green sources (primarily wind) by 2025. It would have required some 2500 to 4000 windmills be erected to achieve that 25% and that’s before acknowledging that 85% of the state is rated poor to marginal for wind.
Wind energy: The process of removing what works (coal-nuclear-gas) with something that sounds good (wind-solar).
Spain under Zapatero was the leader in this. It cost them huge numbers of jobs (something that did in fact contribute to Spain’s current problems), provided little electricty at a huge cost (resulting in price rises for consumers), and ruined the beautiful Spanish landscape by filling it with these marching, roaring monsters.

Once upon a time a long time ago I used to see thousands of ducks (and their hunters) in north central CA - and many many more just Northwest of Stockton. Now days very very few ducks exist in the multitude of waterways along highway 12... where they existed in the 10's of thousands 30 years ago.
A farmer up there told me he finds many of these fine game birds dead - chopped up by the wind turbines that infest that area now.
