Everyone wants clean air and water, for themselves, their children, and their grandchildren. That’s never been in dispute. Where the environmental waters get murky fast is when BILLIONS of dollars via the government-supported/mandated “Green Energy” boondoggle begins to quickly erode both common and economic sense.
Could it be that supposed “Green Energy” is actually doing more harm than good to the planet?
Case in point…
These wind turbines in various parts of the world, meant to help combat “global warming” have a tendency to ice up/freeze during certain times of the year.
The fix is to send in a helicopter (burning fossil fuel) to spray thousands of gallons of hot water (made hot by a fossil fuel burning generator) over the structure.
Here is how environmental science watchdog WhatsUpWithThat described the madness:
The entire rationale for wind turbines is to stop global warming by reducing the amount of CO2 being returned to the atmosphere from the burning of fossil fuels.
In the attached picture, recently taken in Sweden, freezing cold weather has caused the rotor blades of a wind turbine to ice up bringing the blades to a complete stop.
To fix the “problem” a helicopter is employed (burning aviation fuel) to spray hot water (which is heated in the frigid temperatures using a truck equipped with a 260 kW oil burner) on the blades of the turbine to de-ice them.
The aviation fuel, the diesel for the truck, and the oil burned to heat the water, could produce more electricity (at the right time to meet demand) than the unfrozen wind turbine could ever produce. (Before it freezes up again).
The attached picture is a metaphor of the complete insanity of the climate change debate.
In decades to come this one photo alone with sum up an era of stupidity, when rational thought, logic and commonsense was abandoned and immense wealth and resources needlessly sacrificed.
“QUITE POSSIBLY THE SINGLE BEST BOOK I’VE READ THAT CAPTURES THE ANGER AND FRUSTRATION OF THE FORGOTTEN AMERICAN WHO FEELS PUSHED DOWN AND NEGLECTED BY A POLITICALLY-CORRECT WORLD GONE MAD. IT’S A STORY THAT IS AS SHOCKING AS IT IS BEAUTIFUL. IT STARTS OUT ONE WAY AND ENDS UP IN A PLACE I DIDN’T SEE COMING THAT HAD ME NODDING MY HEAD AND SAYING, “RIGHT ON!”
I STAND WITH MR. DIAZ BECAUSE I AM MR. DIAZ. WE ALL ARE. THESE ARE THE KINDS OF STORIES AMERICA-LOVING READERS MUST SUPPORT TO HELP FIGHT BACK AGAINST ALL THE CRAZINESS THAT’S TEARING OUR COUNTRY APART.
MR. DIAZ’S REVENGE IS TRULY A MUST-READ.” -John K. Simms
