Wind Power Fail in Hawaii

Wind power has been hailed by environmentlaists as the answer to our climate change woes, despite outragouesly low efficiency, high maintenence costs, large land use, unreliability in production, and concerns over environmental impacts (!). Despite being assured that wind farms will somehow miraculously cure our energy blues, wind power is Fail. Andrew Walden at American Thinker brings us a detailed piece describing the state of abandoned and decaying wind farms in Hawaii — wind farms that were abandoned because they didn’t produce much and cost too much.

    I would never presume to say that wind or solar energy is the do all end all of our power supply issues. However, I think the energy crisis is a all hands on deck approach. Let’s look at the fossil fuels and let’s see how we can be more efficient, use them effectively, and look at alternatives for when they aren’t there. Let’s put some wind power to use, let’s get some solar energy on a large level and lets give people tax credits if they put solar panels on their homes. This is an issue that will not go away, that was in the forefront of society when Jimmy Carter was President. I don’t want to be 35 and still dealing with this crap.
