An ill wind blows  

Credit:  The Spokesman-Review, www.spokesman.com 8 January 2012 ~~

As I read the Dec. 31 Roundtable Guest Opinion, I kept saying to myself, “Are you nuts?” Then, when I got to the end, it all became very clear. The author is right in the middle of what I call the biggest legal money-laundering scheme of our generation: wind energy.

I have been watching wind energy in California since (Gary) Hardke’s Cannon Power Group started in 1979. At first we joked about what rich doctor got a huge tax break for investing in a turbine. Then, when our electric rates quadrupled, it ceased to be a joke.

Wake up, people. Wind energy is very good for those in on the scheme. The rest of us can watch our electric rates rise higher than the turbines.
