I grew up in TX and as long as I can remember, Pickens was labeled as a shrewd business man.
What he's not telling you in that video on his plan site, is that he's buying up water rights down there.
Pickins buys water rights
Now, he's pushing this whole windmill thing because he's looking for investors and wants to cash in on the deal. He's not being Mr. Nice, he's
looking to get even more wealthy.
This is just more beating around the bush, avoiding free energy research and development.
I'm not totally against wind power. I wish we had a windmill attached to the house just for personal use. But they require a lot of batteries and
cost more than we can afford to spend. There are many windmills where I live now, and one even runs the local ski hill. But wow does it ever ruin
the landscape. It's more of an eyesore out in the country than power lines.
However, when you see thousands of windmills out there, it ruins the landscape. And windmills aren't cheap. They won't last forever and there
might be some problems in future. The consumer will end up paying for it all while businessmen pocket the money. Then eventually you'll get to say
that you're paying for air.
Also, look at where he's wanting to put it all. Now compare that with the NASCO highway map plans. I am guessing they will have windmills all along
They want to put in a huge windmill farm around Pampa, TX? That place almost got leveled a few years back from a mile wide tornado. What's going to
happen with those windmills if another mile wide tornado strikes? I'm afraid to find out. No one is talking about tornado resistance. What happens
if one of those blades gets torn off and goes flying about?
