No it won't. But look at all the birds that will be saved while it's in that condition. ;)

Why is it that if you don't like something you cry about birds being killed but if a study is done on the effects on a three toed one eyed frog you could care less? AND not directing that to anyone in particular just in general. :?

I haven't seen any studies on the effects of windmills on three toed one eyed frogs so I can't comment on it. A google search turned up no references to the study either. :P :lol:

Their more fun to watch when they get hit and destroyed by lightning.
Just think of all the energy they could generate with
vertical axis wind turbines rather than those bloody things.

A vertical axis turbine presents a solid object to any bird
that approaches it when it it is spinning and operates at
a lower wind speed.


BUT Siemens and the rest of them insist on these things
which make too much noise and also create many other
issues especially with homes nearby which vertical axis
wind turbines do not do.

If allowed to in time all clean forms of renewable energy will become better & less expensive, that is unless the one's that gain the most from staying dependent have their way. Does it make anyone wonder why some special interest is willing to spend so much to stop something that they state they know can never work?

Currently, not only are they 'allowed to' build and install them, but your tax dollars are subsidizing it.

Take the windmills for example, very few people know that 80%..........yes I said 80 percent of the cost of every windmill is paid for with tax dollars. :shock: And here's the real kicker that just happened a few months ago...........not only do tax dollars pay that 80% for the windmill and installation.......the newest studies reveal that the lifespan of a windmill is 50% less than was previously determined. :jawdrop:

Let that sink in a little before you respond.

Could be but aren't we still subsidizing most if not all forms of energy if not directly then from tax relief & did the Fed. & in some cases even down to local Gov. help build those businesses?
I think maybe you should revise this link to show the true #s in yours (nevermind I see you showed no link).

You do know don't you that you can provide the source & edit Wikipedia don't you?

The subsidizing for the usual energy forms that you speak of isn't really a 'subsidy' per se. This is where the liberals have changed the language and meaning to suit their needs and were permitted to get away with it.
Said subsidies that you speak of are nothing more than 'tax writeoffs' for equipment purchase, non-performing wells, and other legally allowable items under the tax code of these United States.

The subsidies I am speaking of are of actual payments of tax dollars for the building of a working windmill.

There is a huge difference between the two.
Wind power is totally unsustainable, first is the cost..........second is the amount of land that is needed for them. The USA does not in any way/shape/nor form have the land necessary for enough windmills (and/or solar) to supply the electric grid, and have housing, farms, businesses, roads. And that's a fact.

In the first place you still haven't provided your 80% figure, in the second place most wind & other are to provide some energy where feasible, every little bit helps, there aren't many places where wind farms are good. Solar on the other hand is getting better all the time, maybe we should have listened to Tesla to begin with, with all our current energy sources there are problems, high maintenance, productive life, waste, everything comes with a price but most all will run out. Some that have a vested interest just refuse to understand & want to continue until the lights go out & then look for something else while looking :shock: .
