Wind Power Is Dying
While the U.S. is dumping billions of dollars into wind farms and onshore and offshore wind turbines, this energy source is being cast aside as a failure elsewhere in the world.

Fifteen Bad Things with Windpower–and Three Reasons Why

All this comes about for three basic reasons:

1. Wind proponents are not asked to independently PROVE the merits of their claims before (or after) their product is forced on the public,

2. There is no penalty for making specious assertions about their product’s “benefits,” so each contention is more grandiose than the last, and

3. Promoting wind is a political agenda that is divorced from true science. True science is based on real world data — not carefully massaged computer models, which are the mainstay of anti-science agenda evangelists.

Here is some EXTREMELY important information you have not likely heard before http://www.mineweb.com/mineweb/view/mineweb/en/page72102?oid=83419&sn=Detail

An independent mining expert says that there is up to 4000 pounds of rare earth elements per turbine. Almost all of these come exclusively from China. What this says is that: 
     1) wind energy is NOT a truly renewable source of energy! and 
     2) wind energy does not give us energy independence!

OVERBLOWN: Windpower on the Firing Line (Part I)

Wind, Power and Unintended Consequences in the Colorado Energy Market


Renewable energy: Not all it’s cracked up to be?
Lovelock: “Europe’s massive use of wind as a supplement to baseload electricity will probably be remembered as one of the great follies of the twenty-first century ”

Wind Is Not Power at All (Part I – Overview)

Wind Is Not Power at All (Part II – Power Density)

Wind is Not Power at All (Part III – Capacity Value)
“Wind provides no capacity value and can pass no test for reliability; one can never be sure how much energy it will produce for any future time.”

The Answer, My Friend is NOT Blowing in the Wind
Believing in wind is a fool’s errand. The reasons are simple. Wind is costly, inefficient and erratic.
