Well, yeah, windmills just spin around, while oil derricks just keep pumping in and out, in and out. Thrusting into the Earth, penetrating deep into the crust, pumping, always pumping...

I'm sorry, is it hot in here?

I heard that wind turbines produce more CO2 than all of the coal-fired power plants combined.  Amd that oil derricks actually absorb CO2 and turn it into chocolate chip cookies.  Also, wind turbines are part of this here plot to transfer my money to them folks as slave reparations.  Which makes me mad as heck, I tell you what.

stilted: There are three large wind farms around where I live in NW Oklahoma. It's a major industry in the area.

/Oil industry is booming, too.
//There's room for both.


It's all fun and games until that first massive windspill. As a Floridian, I have experienced these. Both during hurricane season and election season. Where will your T.Boone Pickens be then, Oklahoma?  Hmmmmm?

The Republican's insistence that wind farms are this huge eye sore can only be explained by this:

Plus, there's a finite amount of wind, compared to the literally limitless amount of fossil fuels that just sits there under our feet.  Relying on wind energy (and solar, for that matter) would just be irresponsible. If we use up all the wind, how will future generations be able to fly kites?

PunGent: Not_Todd: Wasn't it Ted Kennedy who led the lawsuit to prevent wind turbines within sight of his estate?

Without tax breaks and subsidies, very few of these things can even break even.

You're talking about the oil and coal industries, right?  :)




Turbines can't make plastic. How the fark am I going to get my latest geewizbang electronic gadget, that I must have? So now our children have to be deprived after you got yours. fark you. Why do you hate the children?

One of the few PBS stations I can get on my satellite system is OETA, Oklahoma PBS. They are actually proud to have a fully Republican House, Senate, and Governor. Plus both their Senators and all of their house members are Republicans.

Their latest brilliant ploy is to eliminate their income tax.

The stupid with these people just burns.

I do love the OETA movie club, but watching their local talk shows with brain dead idiots like Dick Pryor fellating Glenn Beck and Rush Limbaugh makes me glad tornadoes blow through them on a fairly regular basis.

The cool thing about oil derricks is that when you shoot at them they blow up.

His first love was named derrick, but he was tragically killed in a windmill accident. To this day he spreads oily derricks across the land in his memory and fights the dangerous windmills at every chance
