WhoopAssWayne: Ted Kennedy? John Kerry? You mean those blowhards?


Yeah, them too. What of it?

I don't understand why people have a problem with having wind turbines in their field of view. As far as I'm concerned, every new turbine is a set of twirling middle fingers aimed at the Saudis, and I would be proud to seeg them every damn day.

The real question is-- few Massachusetts douchebags aside-- why are so many conservatives afraid of alternative energy sources? Why do they hate America's attempts at energy independence?

If we poured some real effort in to this stuff, we could be supplying our country's energy needs (which will include domestic oil) and telling the Middle East to go kill each other without our involvement. That's supporting the troops right there is what that is.

So what's the goddamn problem, boys?

Because it's percieved as being something liberals like.

Ergo they must hate it.

They are like Evil Jim in that respect.

They don't have a 6% stock position in "Some Hippy Granola Eco Windfarm Bullshiat Corp." like they do in Exxon and BP. Damn hippies probably don't even know what an IPO is.

Man, fark you. If you're seriously upset with a windmill - providing clean, renewable power - "spoiling" your view, then just stick a 9 iron up your butt and start hopping.

A Republican lawmaker in Wisconsin is looking to allow people to sue for damages incurred by 500ft wind turbines, but he won't do the same for busy roads with proven negative health impacts and negative impacts to the value of a home.

http://watchdog.org/79996/wi-lawmakers-bill-allows-property-owners-ri g ht-to-sue-wind-turbine-operators/

"
Sen. Frank Lasee, R-De Pere, says his bill would enable anyone who is harmed by 500-foot industrial wind turbines the ability to sue the wind tower owner as well as the owner of the land on which the tower is located. Plaintiffs would be able to seek damages for the loss of property value, cost of moving, medical expenses, pain and suffering, attorney fees, and any other loss as a result of the industrial wind turbine that is "too close to their home or property," the senator noted in a statement.

The legislation would apply whether or not the wind tower was legally sited, Lasee said.

Ted Kennedy lobbied against a wind farm because it would lower his property values; Kerry did the same, and both are multi--millionaires.

Kerry divorced a woman with $400 mill to marry one with $600 mill.

\\\ That took balls.

Imagine the energy production potential there would be if someone invented a mobile wind farm that could harness the hot air that is constantly coming out of Trump's mouth.

It's really annoying, if you ask me. There's absolutely no reason to ransom our energy independence to foreign nations and yet if you talk about re-engineering our grid and energy mix to fully utilize North American energy sources people start calling you an unAmerican tree-hugging commie bastard or some damn thing. We got new reserves of natural gas, we can generate our own rare earths to crank out windmills by the hundreds, we can tap the Yellowstone Hotspot, and Arizona is just begging to be paved with molten-salt solar installations.

Why does the GOP hate wind energy?  Because most of their funding comes from fossil fuel barons like the Koch brothers.  That's why oil is subsidized 6x more that alternative energy in the US.

It's good to minimize the impact on the local environment -- wildlife included -- when generating electricity. I am right with you there.

That said, does anybody have any numbers regarding wildlife deaths related to coal-burning power plants? This includes "clean" coal, by the way. The byproducts have to go somewhere, even that somewhere isn't the atmosphere. Include extraction in this, too.

How about wildlife deaths related natural gas? Or even nuclear? They have to extract that fuel somehow, too, even if the emissions aren't as bad...

I am seriously curious about the statistics, if anyone happens to have a link handy...

Ok, geo-brainiacs, splain' something to me that I have sometimes wondered about, but have been too lazy to Wiki.

If the Earf is spinning counter-clockwise if viewed from above the north pole, why are the prevailing winds in the northern hemisphere also counter-clockwise as seen from above the north pole?  Doesn't this mean that the general speed of the air above the planet is rotating faster than the rest of the planet?

Now, If we were to build forests of windmils to collect this energy, and it is all in the same direction, would'nt that result in a net positive moment force?  Could this concievably increase the planetary rotational speed over extreme time periods?

Now what particular species of bird, or bat is threatened or endangered by these turbines? Assuming that most endangered birds or bats are in areas where there are not vast horizontal plains that wind inhabits more so than any flora or fauna, I think your rationale is a bit hyperbolic and somewhat obtuse. If you want to contribute, then suggest a solution to the avian holocaust, don't just complain that everyone should go without one possible solution to our oil dependency because a random number of living things gets Darwin'ed by turbines. Animals are renewable too, ya know... they also adapt.

I've only had one bird strike on my car - should I just park it until I can invent a bird catcher so it doesn't become one with my grill? ...seriously...

Don't believe the propaganda. How many birds did you kill on the way to work with your car? Trust me...bats aren't threatened.

I love how every time I attend a development meeting for a wind farm and there is always the obligitory yokel...with the obligitory statement....

"DOZE BIG FANS....DEY KILL ALL DER BIRDS....DOZE BIG FANS GAVE MY COUSIN CROSSED EYES"

People....read up...learn...ask questions...then, and only then can you share your unintelligence.
