14,000 Wind Turbines Kaput (The Towers that Globalony Built)

Watchwoman: Remember this, dear Watchwoman blog readers, it is YOUR tax dollars that was taken from you and then, without your agreement, was redistributed to the greenie-weenies to build these windmills farms – billions of tax dollar$.  That’s why you might agree with me that “The Man of La Mancha” may not have been so delusional after all slaying windmills.  Tee hee! Maybe we should say:  “The Evil Towers that Globalony Built!”▬  Donna Calvin


When an honest history of this period in the United States is written, it will not be kind to the corporate cronyism that preyed upon public ignorance of earth science to create a crisis — global warming — to exploit and loot the Treasury.




14,000 abandoned wind turbines

November 19, 2011 by Don Surber

As Jimi Hendrix may have put it: “And the wind cries bankrupt…”

Don Quixote Slaying Windmills, thinking they were evil giants!


Minnesotans for Global Warming report that in the last 30 years, theUnited Stateshas had 14,000 wind turbines abandoned. Apparently, once the subsidies and the wind run out, these 20-story high Cuisinarts are de-bladed and retired. This means more bats and migratory birds will live.


From Minnesotans for Global Warming: “The symbol of Green renewable energy, our savior from the non existent problem of Global Warming, abandoned wind farms are starting to litter the planet as globally governments cut the taxes that consumers pay for the privilege of having a very expensive power source that does not work every day for various reasons like it’s too cold or  the wind speed is too high.”

Andrew Walden of American Thinker explored nearly 2 years ago the demise of the 37-turbine wind farm at Kamaoa Wind Farm in Hawaii: “Built in 1985, at the end of the boom, Kamaoa soon suffered from lack of maintenance. In 1994, the site lease was purchased by Redwood City, CA-based Apollo Energy. Cannibalizing parts from the original 37 turbines, Apollo personnel kept the declining facility going with outdated equipment. But even in a place where wind-shaped trees grow sideways, maintenance issues were overwhelming. By 2004 Kamaoa accounts began to show up on a Hawaii State Department of Finance list of unclaimed properties. In 2006, transmission was finally cut off by Hawaii Electric Company.California’s wind farms — then comprising about 80% of the world’s wind generation capacity — ceased to generate much more quickly than Kamaoa. In the best wind spots on earth, over 14,000 turbines were simply abandoned. Spinning, post-industrial junk which generates nothing but bird kills.”

You make an excellent point. Nothing is free. I keep wondering how much electricity does it cost to plug in a Volt car? I have never seen any estimates of how much it costs and how much it will raise your home electric bill. What happens if (I should say when) the grid goes down? How much extra does it cost everyone in the USA to generate the electric power to power electric cars? How much more pollution will that add? I never hear anyone mention any of this. Why not? How come the greener-weiners never complain about the electricity the Volters are using? Do you know?

Mike, nothing is free. What are the costs of all those windmills. How much CO2 was generated in manufacturing those windmills.

Check out the Huffington Post for health problems associated with wind turbines.

Check Live science

For Windmills to Change Local and Global Climates. EXCERPT: To answer the global question, David Keith of the University of Calgary and his colleagues estimated the drag that wind farms hypothetically expanded to cover 10 percent of the Earth’s land surface could have on the planet’s circulating atmosphere. The result showed global cooling in polar regions above 60 degrees North latitude and global warming in temperate regions such as North America at about 30 degrees North latitude. Read the whole article if you dare.
Are they still the best thing since sliced bread?

14,000 was a number invented by Andrew Walden, a Hawaiian anti-wind activist, as the number of wind turbines world-wide that are inactive. This number has since been quoted as being in the USA alone and even more absurdly, in California alone. The grain of truth there was that there were about 14000 working wind turbines in California at the time.

There are 165,000 wind turbines generating, clean, safe, CO2-free electricity in the world today. At most, about 1% of the older smaller ones might be simultaneously defunct and not replaced with larger modern ones. This represents perhaps 0.5% of the total generating capacity of wind in the world.

Common sense and the taxpayers be damned. It seems to me that the biggest scam artists on the planet, reside in universities and congress.
