24. Wow! Unadulterated wind industry propaganda. A rare treat. LOL.

CO2 production: As you very well know, for every wind turbine that produces electricity, a gas-fired generator must always be running in spinning reserve to supply current in the event that the wind stops blowing. In other words, we burn the same amount of fossil fuels whether we have the windmills or not. They have a net negative effect on the environment. They do not reduce CO2 emissions.

Industrial blight:

Palm Springs, California

Abilene, Texas

Wingate, Texas

Somewhere in California

Oh, yes. Those are beautiful. :rofl:
