Supporting wind turbines with the nation trillions of dollars in debt, with their minimal or nonexistent contributions to global warming and virtually no useful power generation, enormous cost and the “feel good” reason for their existence is like supporting an unemployed person, $50,000 in debt, taking his unemployment check and buying a hot tub. The hot tub makes him feel better. And it keeps the hot tub manufacturers in business, which means less unemployment. Can you imagine a politician arguing that the unemployed should be buying hot tubs to feel better and save jobs?
That’s what politicians who support wind turbines do – endorse having a nation trillions of dollars in debt buy a product that has no practical value but “creates jobs.” Plus, the whole thing makes the politicians feel good about themselves because they are doing something good for the environment. Like the unemployed guy using the hot tub to feel good about himself and improve his environment (makes the house more user friendly). No wonder our economy is a mess. Think about this when looking at who you want to represent you in government.
