Wind energy isn’t efficient  

Credit:  Letter: Wind energy isn't efficient | Globe Gazette | globegazette.com ~~

To say that MidAmerican’s $3.6 billion wind energy expansion will move them “closer to providing 100 percent renewable energy to its customers” is simply a lie. The sun shines on the other side of the earth at night and the wind doesn’t blow all the time.

MidAmerican CEO Bill Fehrman claims the project will not cost customers anything because the entire cost will be recouped through federal tax incentives. Apparently he is living in this future world where Bernie has won and only people richer than MidAmerican customers will be paying taxes. Somebody has to pay for the bloated monstrosity we call the federal government, right?

The bottom line is this: Warren Buffet, the real big-wig at MidAmerican, says they would never build wind farms without subsidies. In the big picture that means we are not using the most efficient energy source. The money is flowing out of our pockets into the pockets of the lobbyists’ employers.

The governor and his cronies might call that economic development, I call it theft.

Look at this YouTube: “Bird vs Wind Turbine FAIL”.
