    Our energy plan is right on track

    Our energy plan is right on track

    Windmills are a centerpiece of Obama’s energy plans for the nation.

    We’ve already documented how wind power subsidies take from the windless to give to the winded, and some problems when the wind blows too much.

    Here’s another, from Britain, regarding noise pollution:

    Wind turbines are being turned off during high winds because they are too noisy.

    Documents from local authorities show that 269 complaints were received about noise from the rotating blades in the past three  years. Some came from residents living up to three miles away.

    In nearly half of these cases, operators  switched turbines off or reduced their speed.

    This is just a minor aberration.  We’re still on track with our high speed train, water conservation and LED light bulb and incandescent phase out plans.

    Great idea about the high speed trains. Or maybe reverse engineer and install them as propulsion units on a fleet of huge passenger blimps [upper surfaces constructed from curved solar panels] to ply back and forth between major cities during daylight hours to relieve freeway congestion.

    That only leaves those huge, skinny long metal poles to recycle. OK, I did the hard part. Somebody else can worry about them. Or maybe the occupods could use them?
