Yes, you guessed it, the Koch brothers are hatching even more cartoonishly sinister plans to discredit, of all things, RENEWABLE ENERGY??? Only
billions of dollars can buy you the kind of propaganda efforts (via right-wing media and paid shills) that would convince average dupes to rail
against renewable energy.
I HOPE people see through this. But if the whole climate skeptic "movement" is any sign, then here's yet another wildfire of stupidity that will have
to be put out by scientists, intelligent people, and those who actually care about our world (instead of profits/ideology).
Please people, if you're reading this, don't believe their well-crafted propaganda, and don't say you weren't given a heads-up...

This is all probably true.
Are you surprised.
I think wind energy sucks for making electricity.
Solar and getting off the grid is how I'm going to do it.
Forget the rest of these fools, the sun won't run out.
Wind won't run out either, but even single people can put up solar panels. Compare that with how many people/dollars/companies it takes to build and
put up and run a wind turbine
I'm all for "FREE" "renewable" and other non main stream energy, but I think wind energy is weak. I live in a town that has a wind turbine. You can
see it from everywhere it's so dang big. It's not ugly like some people say, but it is only one. It's not a wind "farm" as it were...
Anyway, I think there are even better options according to everyone I know who deals in electronics. Engineers in my family point to other methods of
creating potential energy gaps... Best way I know involves more than 3D...
I don't want to hate on wind power too much. It DOES work. It is better than a lot of what we are using, and it doesn't hurt us too bad. The problem
is how weak it is. We would need SO MANY to power the USA it would be impossible.
I'm thinking Fusion,
Something that uses atleast 5D physics...
Also if PEAK oil is true, do you guys not understand Americas game? We give them IOU's and they give us their OIL. Then when everyone runs out besides
world Armies, We are sitting on a VAST resource pile. Hahaha, they keep "buying" our paper, like fools.
