Google Sinks Billions Into Wind Power Scam

Google has joined forces with a New York financial firm to invest five billion dollars into a 350-mile electricity transmission backbone for future offshore wind generation.

Google, which obviously hasn't figured out that wind power is a money-wasting hoax, is partnering with investment firm, Good Energies, and a Japanese trading house to fund the 350-mile seabed transmission spine that would run from New York, past New Jersey, Maryland, Delaware, Washington D.C. and then reach a southern hub in Virginia.

Imagine, five billion dollars for a seabed transmission line for a technology that's a scam.  Amazing isn't it?   But, then again, it's the very same scam that the Brits, the French, the Germans, the Scandinavians, the Italians, the Chinese and others have been enjoying for years already.

No one doubts that wind works -- at generating the green credits that have come to mark carbon action instead of actually reducing carbon. That's what they do in Europe, that's what they do in developing countries for the benefit of Europe, and that's what they do here.

Rucio - don't you have a tea party to attend? You're ridiculous.

That was Enron's genius: They realized the more important product of wind turbines was the symbolism, so they separated it from the actual energy and with the help of George W Bush they convinced government regulators that they could sell it separately. "Green tags" were born.

And that's what it's all about, isn't it? All plans to reduce carbon do not actually do so but instead require the production or purchase of green tags.

As for your reflexive dismissal of arguments by name-calling, you should take a look at the comments under the New York Times story about the wind trubine noise in Vinalhaven, Maine: Many people dismiss the complainers as "liberals".

Confusing, isn't it.

I don't think I hit "publish" for an earlier additional comment about Enron:

They also pioneered the buying off of environmental groups, making them partners in energy development instead of obstacles. Collaborators, if you will.
