Wind Power Has Cut U.S. Carbon Dioxide Emissions By 4.4 Percent: Report

Wind Power Has Cut U.S. Carbon Dioxide Emissions By 4.4 Percent: Report

Commented Apr 7, 2014 at 10:42:57 in Green

“On many farms, there isn't enough water to put every acre of land to use (most places have a water problem, not a land availability problem). On ranch lands the cattle are just fine walking around the windmills to feed on natural feed. Contrary to your comment, the United States is a huge exporter of agricultural goods (think corn and wheat), not an importer of it.”

“Farmers make good side money by allowing windmills next to their crops. Land that wouldn't be used otherwise.”

“Wrong. Prime farmland is lost to the tune of 2 acres per turbine when you include the access roads. Once that loamy topsoil is removed and replaced with 20,000 tonnes of concrete for these turbine bases, the use of that land for farming is lost forever. Where do you intend to buy your food from in the future? Canned and processed from China? Good luck with that.”

“Every summer we drive from San Francisco Airport across country to our home in WY. All across Idaho every year, you can see more and more wind turbines dotting the farmland.”

I like the way you think. Even the Pentagon is trying to push back against some of the incredible over spending done in the name of military defense. Maybe some of that overspending could be directed toward helping wounded veterans.”

“Sneak up on a person in the middle of the night and start cursing at him and perhaps flash my gun at them = starting a fight.”

“Well then, good thing none of that happened eh?
Even Rachel Jeantel has said, on this very site, that she does not believe GZ had his gun out, and is confident Trayvon swung first. So Trayvon spoke first, and swung first... in fact there's no evidence GZ swung *ever* - this appears, by all evidence, to have been a completely one sided assault and battery until the very end when GZ defended himself.
TM's cousin was also confident that TM had been in the dominant, aggressive position of beating GZ up. His tweet a few days after the event attested to that.”
