How to Fight Big Wind

"Chapter 8. Wind energy works because of (a) carbon credits (an unspeakable scam), (b) federal & state subsidies of various sorts, (c) a slow bleed from your monthly energy bill (check it out), (d) PILOT (Payment in Lieu of Taxes) arrangements with communities, and (e) huge tax write-offs for wind investors, including big Wall Street banks. It does not work because it is economically feasible—it’s not—or because it produces meaningful electricity—it does not. And if I hear that it “gets us off foreign oil” I’m gonna scream. For that statement, you need not a beginning physics text, you need your head examined."

I wanted to link C0bzz' thread on green energy here since it's a current thread on the same subject, but I think Dr. Martin's book draft should have its own thread here.
