wind turbineSometimes it’s hard not to get discouraged when one sees such a continuous flow of unscientific nonsense from sources that we might have thought had competence and intellectual integrity (like here and here and here). And then there are many millions of dollars spent to “break the resistance” of wind energy opponents (e.g. here).

On the other hand, if we are paying attention, there is actually a LOT of good news happening in the energy and environmental arenas. In every issue of the newsletter I purposefully include several positive reports.

Final Thoughts

Our proposed national energy slogan is “All of the Sensible” (in contrast to the absurd “All of the Above”). Additionally we should be using the term “unreliables” when speaking of renewables. Please pass these on. US citizens should make sure to get up-to-speed with what is on our PTCFacts.Info pages, as the PTC is still a political issue.


Please pass this information on to other open-minded, science-oriented people.

Thank you for your support.
