Why is this moron obsessed with wind energy?  I know he's a giant windbag... maybe that's it.  He hates the competition.

He knows nothing of industry or businsses other than show biz, snake oil salesmanship, and con artistry but he knows windmills and all things that irritate right wing and fascistic land magnates and extraction iindustry pions are sure fire handle son those who vote or buy elections. Don't forget he was a follower of Norman Vincent Peel and the Art of the Christian Businessman steal.

What TFA couches in "maybe" language is the reason. He didn't give a shiat about windmills until a Scottish wind energy project "interfered" with some of the views of his precious Aberdeen golf course. Then, in a now-familiar pattern, he started spreading every lie and slur he could find against both wind energy and everyone who favors it. That's it. That's the entire reason.

It's a tacky golf course in a tourist trap. Don't they all have a windmill on some hole or another, right next to the concrete gator?

He's hated windmills ever since they put them off the coast of one of his golf courses, which he considers an eyesore.

So it's personal for him. It has nothing to do with energy, the environment, or anything else. It's all about him. There's no other reason.

Many people are saying, after 2 million golf swings a critical tendon in a human man's groin gives out and it causes uncorrectable crooked dick that makes sex impossible.

That's why Tiger Woods does as much boning as he can and Jack Nickleson got back into acting later in life. Believe me. Okay? Okay!

There's probably a touch of 'I can't buy the wind?  I hate it!' going on, like with the fossil fuel industry.

I think his hate for windmills goes back to his childhood at a birthday party when he was defeated by the windmill at mini golf course. He's suppressed the memory but the obsession pops up and expresses itself in irrational ranting against wind turbines. There was also a hole with a ramp at that mini golf course, and another where there was a wall the player had to ricochet his putt off but that's just coincidental. Only wild speculation would see any significance in that. After the party the kids all went to McDonald's. The birthday boy got two scoops of ice cream and that's another story for another time.

Because a big offshore windfarm went up in sight of his scottish golf course. He took exception and tried to have it removed by legal means. He failed and now he holds a grudge against all wind power everywhere for eternity because he's just that kind of useless person.

Yeah. I'm willing to forgive the unfortunately microscopically small group of people that voted for him in 2016 and said "Wow, in retrospect that was really stupid. I'm not voting for him again". Even though, back then, I think it was blatantly obvious who he is, there are some people who will really believe the magician is doing magic until they see the false bottom in the hat. Not everyone is as cynical as I am.

Anyone who voted for him in 2020 needs to be shot into the sun. Only the fusion reaction inside a star can dispose of that level of stupid asshole.

That's not stupidity. It's active spite.

See the propensity for people who support actively racist programs to be offended at claims of racism. Then sit back and watch them for a few days. Without fail, they'll prove who they are.

It takes less time in-private, but it bleeds through at some point. See your nearest wannabe nobler-than-thou centrist who claims a Walgreens burning down justifies 1/6.

Nothing new.  I mean it CAN be used as a chemical feedstock but is less versatile and more expensive to process than oil at this point.  It is also indispensable in the making of steel, but only hi-grade coal.  Neither of those uses are new.

You nèed Ultra High Grade anthracite coal (non-fuel type) to produce steel.

Guess who the #1 importer of US metallurgical coal is?

I remember at one point having a discussion about the noise while sitting at my sister's picnic table. I pulled out my phone and opened up the decibel meter on it. The sound of us talking was louder than the 40db noise it's supposed to make within 100 yards. That pretty much killed that conversation.

\funny part is, there used to be one within sight of said picnic table but they took it down because UMass didn't take care of it

But didn't you hear him right before that?  He said we have clean coal now.  No more CO2 or carcinogens.  The power plants now emit a pleasant cinnamon smell, and the people living near them now get increased IQs instead of cancer.
