    What we take out of the wind with wind power is notable.

    He actually thinks wind generators cause global warming.

    Swear to God.
    Many Trump supporters have lots of problems, and those deplorables are bringing those problems to us. They’re racists. They’re misogynists. They’re islamophobic. They're xenophobes and homophobes. And some, I assume, are good people.

    Climate Economics
    Funding the Climate-Industrial Complex

    Why Big Green energy investors rely on the man-made global warming myth Tom D. Tamarkin Supposedly “green” or “renewable” energy has become a trillion-dollar-plus annual industry that has spawned tens of thousands of new businesses worldwide. The total Climate-Industrial Complex is a $2-trillion-per-year business. Major fossil fuel companies like Shell Energy now have green energy…

    Just read a few studies in the regional affects where there is large wind generation.

    I cited I think three studies a year or two ago.

    China says no to wind and solar tech unless it can compete with coal on price

    China has said it will not approve wind and solar power projects unless they can compete with coal power prices. Beijing pulled the plug on support for large solar projects, which had been receiving a per kWh payment, in late May. That news came immediately after the country’s largest solar industry event and caught everyone by surprise. Officials are…

    The propaganda for renewables in most countries seems to be hitting that wall hard.

    You lefties fall for PR scams so easily.

    And I must have grabbed the wrong state at first. Indiana has more than double the generation I first stated which puts the new renewable you champion at under 12%.

    All my links said that it was Northern Indiana Public Service Company. While yes it could have been better if I written “that even Northern Indiana Public Service Company in Republican Indiana are replacing coal with renewables”. You have also offer no proofs to refute the claim that they will reduce their carbon emission with more than 90 percent or their plan to get only a small percent of energy from other areas.

    Also and many coal plants have closed since 2019 while also a lot of other energy companies in republican states are investing in renewables.
