Wind power – Gone with the Wind

A big deal was made by another blogger regarding Texas brown-outs and wind power – how “wind turbines saved Texas”.

 

Of course, they didn’t – but that story is on his blog.

 

Part of the side story, however, was a claim about the growing popularity of “Greenie” power – however, recent news actually highlights a signficant reverse of such popularity.

Dutch fall out of love with windmills

 

….Dutch government says offshore wind power is too expensive and that it cannot afford to subsidize the entire cost of 18 cents per kilowatt hour — some 4.5 billion euros last year.

 

 

And not to be out done the Duke of Windor said:

Wind farms are useless, says Duke

 

An industry that needs a subsidy to live, will die without it.

Economics is the mother of Politics – and as Economics flexes its dominating muscle, the Politics of Greenie energy will be shrugged aside.

    Let’s hope so, but I’m concerned about the human population control/reduction crowd. The Greenie fantasy includes eradicting billions of surplus humans. I’m already hearing the sheep bleet about ‘too many people’. I think that as the economy continues its collapse, the Malthusians are really going to crank it up. I’m afraid a lot of people will die because of it.

    But the wind is ‘ free ‘ ! How on earth can something that is ‘ free ‘ be so expensive ?
