And total energy for the U.S. is 6%.... Like I said, they produce next to nothing. Unless of course if you are reading statistics off of AWEA's website. Regardless, if industrial wind complexes are supposed to save the environment, then more R&D must be done to find a way to store the excess power, otherwise they are backed up by convential power. Which of course means the very source of energy (dirty coal) that the "greenies" are claiming to fight against is being used to spin the blades when the wind isn't blowing. I can't speak for California, but Ohio ranks 37th in being compatable for wind "farm" development. Over 1,000 families will live in the shadow of the Buckeye Wind "Farm" in Ohio. That's a large number of people compared to many areas that host these projects. We have been fighting this since 2006. Like I said before, the beauty of the U.S. is that you can have your opinion and I can have mine. We will throw statistics around until dooms day because we will both get our information from what we feel are reliable sources. I can respect that. But I wish the reasoning behind these huge projects was to really save the planet. I just don't feel that's the case. There are over 100 of these 500 ft IWT's proposed for my area and only 5% of the leaseholders will have to live next to them.

CaptD needs to broaden his research and his horizons Emphasis

Any one concerned about birds should read this poignant and gut wrenching "Confession of a Windfarm Bird Kill Control Specialist" who "followed death around" : http://www.windturbinesyndrome.com/2013/confessions-of-a-windfarm-bird-kill-control-specialist-michigan/?var=cna.

Germany and Denmark communities are, in fact, rebelling against noisy and health- stealing wind turbines. Just like other turbine-impacted communities around the globe.

A retired High Court Justice in Denmark says that "Wind power has thoroughly corrupted the political system": http://www.windturbinesyndrome.com/2012/wind-power-has-thoroughly-corrupted-the-political-system-says-retired-high-court-justice-denmark/?var=cna

Germany's Der Spiegel reported on "the Eco-Blowback: 'Mutiny in the land of turbines" :http://www.epaw.org/documents.php?lang=en&article=f5;

Two Danish cities, each with populations over 50,000, placed moratoriums on wind turbine projects and the Health Minister and Minister of Environment are calling for independent health impact studies: http://www.epaw.org/documents.php?lang=en&article=no11

The proposed Pio Pico Energy Center is just one more of SDG&E's expensive and unnecessary boondoggles. However, it is simply false for CaptD to claim that a project located 70 miles away from our neighborhoods could create more negative impacts than the industrial scale wind, solar, and utility infrastructure projects planned as close as 100 feet from existing rural East County residences and other sensitive receptors.

For more news and facts from those who work to expose the wind energy scam and advocate for wind turbine victims and refugees (people who actually abandon their homes and farms to escape the torture) go to these sites:
