    The biggest wind turbine in the world takes up around a quarter acre and produces about 6MW of power, for a total of 24MW/acre, which is way better than a coal or nuclear plant if you include the massive cooling ponds required, waste storage areas, etc. Wind power takes up less space than coal or nuclear.

    Actually, part of the reason why we give subsides to "corn" is due to crop rotation requirements. We learned that lesson during the great depression.
    Im talking about an altogether different subsidy---ethanol. Its far worse than soil banking.

    Closing theses coal plants is the first step in radical environmentalist plan of using global warming scam as a club to destroy all fossil fuel based power. They successfully did this in the Pacific Northwest with the spotted owl scam to shut down three quarters of our sawmills and put 1000s of mill workers and loggers out of work.

    So, global warming is a scam but the goal is to stop fossil fuel power production... for what reason, again?

    Yes global warming scam and, spotted owl scam is the same thing. Find a boogey man to fear or a warm fuzzy to save to implement your agenda. Why you guys want to end use of fossil fuel and stop logging is a question for you to answer, not me. In my opinion though you enviros love all the modern amenities like a house to live in made from trees and energy to keep it warm made from fossil fuels but are racked with guilt over it and lash out at the people that provide these things for you. Like I said I can’t explain it, I don’t understand the mindset but I think it has something to do with the old saying, “you want to have your cake and eat it too”.

    You claim they are scams, prove it.

    Even if Global warming is a scam, the health cost of CO2 emissions is real.

    Why would someone be racked with guilt if there's no consequences of fossil fuels? I mean, it's all a scam, right? There's no global warming, so what would someone have to feel guilty about? What agenda is served by eliminating fossil fuels? Is it really your opinion that people want to pay higher gas prices just for ****s and giggles?

    Your conspiracy theory requires that a large group of people be actively working to harm themselves with no apparent benefit from the end-goal.

    Real people aren't comic book villains.

    CO2 is not directly harmful to your health until you get to seriously high concentrations. Other pollutants have a direct health effect, of course, but CO2 toxicity isn't a problem until many times the current atmospheric concentration.

    Nice try but to power the people their would be no land left to grow crops. Not to mention health concerns and tax subsidies. If it is so good lets stop the subsidies and see if they can make it on the profit
