    sWINDle billboard – call for pledges

    Dear Friends Opposed to Energy from Wind: To date, there have been few clear, widespread public statements on the downsides of energy from wind. A statement via a billboard, I strongly feel, will reach the general public and incite questions. As elected officials are loathe to cross their electorate, hopefully the public will become more skeptical and influence their representatives to change their pro-wind or on-the-fence positions. The local newspapers and TV people could cover the story. I propose a . . .

    Urge your senators to reject a national RES

    Update:  Yesterday afternoon (Sept. 21), Senators Bingaman (D-NM), Brownback (R-KS), Dorgan (D-ND), Collins (R-ME), Udall (D-NM), and Udall (D-CO) introduced a 15% by 2021 renewable electricity standard (RES) bill, The Renewable Electricity Promotion Act. For this RES only bill to move forward, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid will need to allow this bill to come up for a floor vote, and at least 60 Senators will need to vote in favor of it. The primary purpose of the RES is . . .

    Toronto, April 28 – Greetings from U.K.

    Dear Friends, It is with joy that we, in the UK, receive news of your demonstration tomorrow. Country Guardian was founded in 1991 to oppose the industrialization of our countryside with wind “farms”. After nearly two decades of research we are in no doubt that industrial windpower does far more damage to the environment than any benefit it purports to bring. The reality of the wind industry is a far cry from the superficially attractive concept of electricity generated by . . .

    They’re Not Green (documentary film)

    For a period extending over thirty years, the wind power industry, its lobbyists and a host of U.S. politicians have promoted “wind power” as “clean and green.” The color of green does loom large in this cozy arrangement, but it is the color of $$$$$, not clean air. This thoroughly researched documentary film examines the environmental effects of wind power, including its limited impact upon reducing CO2 emissions, its potentially negative health implications and its contributions to soil erosion due . . .

    The Wind Farm Scam

    The spectre of global warming and the political panic surrounding it has triggered a goldrush for renewable energy sources without an open discussion of the merits and drawbacks of each. In The Wind Farm Scam Dr Etherington argues that in the case of wind power the latter far outweigh the former. Wind turbines cannot generate enough energy to reduce global CO2 levels to a meaningful degree; what’s more wind power is by nature intermittent and cannot generate a steady output, . . .

    Answers to a few questions

    The air went out of the sails of the “Wind Power Forum” for a bit because we hope to make it Web based and have some technical tinkering to do to prepare The Smoky Mountain News’ Web site. To whet your appetite and perhaps inspire wind-power proponents to respond, I will give you a glimpse from the most complete response (answering all the reader-inspired questions) we have received to date. The response is from Eric Rosenbloom, a science editor and . . .
