Unfortunately the EPA now has to re-calibrate its diligence standards regarding the efficiency of many Coal Fired Plants, as for example is the case with several of our most efficient coal fired plants in North Carolina like the Marshall Steam Station!

Co2 emissions are now a factoring component in all efficiency equations! This mindless obsession and junk science of labeling CO2 a pollutant now wants to wipe away years of scientific knowledge and discoveries only to replaced by some anal obsessive preoccupation with a major ingredient of the Carbon Cycle! That being CO2! Yes CO2, one of the most critical standards of a healthy carbon cycle, has virtually been been relabeled as an unfriendly and unsafe gas!

Meanwhile these Inefficient, environmentally unfriendly pop culture mindless devices labeled Windmills directly benefit from this illegally vague and malicious factoring of CO2 by it into energy efficiency equations!!

Wow Great rant. "mindless obsession" "junk science" I'm sure the National Academy of Science and the American Association for the Advancement of Science will be surprised that you don't approve of their members' work or professional consensus.

Thumbs down Devastating Environmental Effects

The devastating environmental effects of many wind farms upon the bird and bat populations have not been a priority or reported widely by many environmental groups like the Sierra Club or Friends of Rachel Carson.

www.windaction.org | Altamont Pass Settlement Fails to Reduce Bird Kills

Beyond the negative implications for affected wildlife virtually all Wind Farms have never yielded or returned the initial financial investment needed to build them but rather have only become a financial drain for tax payers.

If you remove the allowed accelerated depreciation and the favorable tax credits and other tax exemptions wind farms receive then maybe you can do a fair comparison to coal Fired Plants or even gas fired plants. Because of these mindless energy policies our economy is sinking to the point of being over taken by a very strong industrial China who by the way is laughing all the way to the bank, as these Eco Adam's Apple Terrorists Destroy our country.

There are specific multi-year environmental assessments of the impact of wind farms on the local bird and bat populations that are a routine part of the environmental approval process for wind farms.

That's why Boone Pickens is lining up to participate. Because it's a bad investment.

Actually if you add to coal fired plants the cost of the environmental damage that they do, wind is way cheaper. Anyone who wants to go live in pollution-choked China is free to die there.

Thanks for the good words vec101. By the way, as you may have noticed there are a few who post on the green forums who claim to be scientists or licensed engineers. Well I already busted one!

Below is a website which reveals more about these imposters and why they lie about their occupations.

Thank you for this link and for this entire thread, Comet. I can deal with eyesores if necessary and appreciate birds of prey but am most infuriated by fields of inefficient $$ processors. That's the bottom line.
