    very interesting article here about environmentalist ideology and its roots..........offers great insight into why the whole green movement has lost traction too............

    And as Ive been saying for over 10 years, it has nothing to do with science and EVERYTHING to do with a loathing of capitalism..............

    Everyone knows the junk doesn't produce diddly in electricity but they trusted Barry Hussein. Smart democrats saw Obama appoint a communist with absolutely no experience other than leading an arson and looting rampage to his green jobs board. The green jobs board was part of the revolution and now the whole stack of cards is falling apart.

    I don't know, how hard?

    It isn't really funny...I mean unless you're just interested in the political poo-flinging.

    Ray.......the cool graphics are impressive until you realize that it doesnt change the facts on what proportion wind is as compared to conventional energy for powering our nation. Its like comparing the boobs of Kate Hudson to the boobs of Pamela Anderson.

    Take a guess which represents wind???



    And anyway.........the news from last month = not good for the wind companies. 37,000 workers expected to be laid off without the tax credits. Wind energy just cant stay afloat without help from the government.

    Why yes, the Congress keeps giving the fossil fuel industry subsidies while denying them to alternative energy companies. It would warm the cockles of my heart to see an energy development that would put the fossil fuel companies right out of existance. Then you people could cackle with glee about the jobs lost there.
