Wind: Idiot Power

Shouldn’t the people who are meeting to try to find ways that the countries of the world can agree on reducing carbon emissions be the first ones to try to limit their own carbon emissions?

The conclusion? Warmists love their taxpayer funded working vacations to great vacations spots too much.

    Teach when you post something like what Homer-Dixon wrote, do you ever bother to fact check it ?
    I did
    It is false not even close a 2.5 Mw windmill makes about 5,000,000 kWh in a year
    What is that value in dollars ? It costs about 5 million to install one of that size
    I know you aren’t so good with maths but would you care to take a look at the numbers?

    John “I know you aren’t so good at maths….” Enough said.

    The lying liars continue to lie…

    Where’s the complete passage from the book:

    The concept of net energy must be applied to renewable sources of energy, such as windmills and photovoltaics. A two-megawatt windmill contains 260 tonnes of steel requiring 170 tonnes of coking coal and 300 tonnes of iron ore, all mined, transported and produced by hydrocarbons. The question is: how long must a windmill generate energy before it creates more energy than it took to build it? At a good wind site, the energy payback day could be in three years or less; in a poor location, energy payback may be never. That is, a windmill could spin until it falls apart and never generate as much energy as was invested in building it.

    The bolded was portions were left out by the lying liars.

    j,

    We know that conservatives eschew arithmetic, but adore lying… ’nuff said.

    As Ted Cruz famously said over several occasions:

    “As” “a” “Canadian” “citizen” “who” “hates” “the” “United” “States” “and” “especially” “its” “stupid people”, “I” “truly believe” “that” “oil and gas” “are” “the work of” “Satan” “and” “that” “wind power” “is” “the salvation” “of” “the world”.

    Maybe idiot power is generating power by pumping gigatons of pollutants into the air and consuming oxygen.

    Remember: C3H8 + 5O2 –> 3CO2 + 4H20 + heat

  7. jl says:

    Or, maybe idiots believe that decreasing the amount of CO2 is actually good for plant life and the planet. You know, those plants that emit…..oxygen. Remember money+CO2+ manipulated data= idiots.

  8. Jeffery says:

    It was William Teach that manipulated what was written to mislead his hapless readers.

    So you’re in favor of more plants to remove CO2 and add O2? Why?

    Jeff,
    You are a very sick guy, you need help, if already receiving help, call you doctor.

    Thanks dave. I consider your hatred a positive affirmation.
