'Errors of fact' wind industry's stock in trade  

The only thing “inexhaustible” about industrial wind power appears to be its advocates’ insistence that it has any value at all to justify desecrating wild places and destroying rural communities.

The Sept. 17 letter from Tom Gray of the American Wind Energy Association attempts to claim that wind does in fact displace other sources of energy.

He does so by citing a paper that says it will. Why doesn’t he cite a paper that says it has, e.g., in Denmark, Spain or Germany, where wind energy is well-established?

The fact is, there doesn’t seem to be any such paper.

The industry continues to fantasize about future success, despite an ongoing record that shows no benefits from wind energy at all.

“Errors of fact and omission” are their stock in trade.

It’s no wonder, then, that opposition to this destructive boondoggle only grows. The “errors” of industrial-scale wind energy are increasingly hard to deny.
