Comments on: Why subsidize the surfeit of wind turbines? http://blogs.reuters.com/environment/2010/03/29/why-subsidize-the-surfeit-of-wind-turbines/ Global environmental challenges Wed, 16 Nov 2016 08:14:55 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: rschiwal http://blogs.reuters.com/environment/2010/03/29/why-subsidize-the-surfeit-of-wind-turbines/comment-page-1/#comment-344881 Wed, 28 Apr 2010 21:13:37 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/environment/?p=16607#comment-344881 I am always leery of energy policy opinions written by “concerned citizens”. As a college freshman, I wrote a paper exposing a link between Qatari oil interests and David Pimentell, the chief crusader against ethanol fuel. His research was so full of holes a fifth grader would have no trouble proving them wrong, but according to Adolph Hitler, a lie said loud enough and often enough becomes the truth. Pimentell’s been quoted everywhere from National Geographic to The West Wing and ethanol still has an uphill fight.
Now we have “Wind Concerns Ontario.”
I would love to see who actually pays their bills.

Haven’t we polluted it enough already? I love the look of the turbines I lived with them for 20 years in the mountains of the desert, all they are is an adaptation of the old Dutch windmill and they look absolutely fabulous on land; especially atop a mountain or even in a cityscape. Obviously, the politicians did not respect either the Native Americans or the local inhabitants or the residents of this state. This was very hotly contested but guess who won. Big government not the little guy why should anyone care about the little guy’s feelings. Don’t get me wrong, these are needed but put them where they belong.
