By Bonner Cohen, Ph.D. ~ President Biden’s “incredible transition” to what he assures us will be a clean-energy future is not going down well with residents and public officials in south-central Idaho, who are up in arms over a proposed wind power project that will have as many as 400 giant turbines marring the area’s […]

By Anton Lang ~ I was recently asked if there was a way I could tell how many turbines were rotating at a wind plant, other than actually driving by one of these Industrial plants and and actually counting them. This is a tricky one to answer correctly, and you’ll soon see why. I sometimes […]

Virginia Agency Challenges Dominion’s Offshore Wind Deception

By David Wojick, Ph.D. ~ I earlier wrote about the deep deception in Dominion Energy’s proposal to build a huge 2,600 MW offshore wind (OSW) system in Virginia. With 175 massive 800 foot tall generators, it is by far the biggest OSW project ever attempted in America. A true monster. See my https://www.cfact.org/2022/03/11/dominions-deception-hits-new-high-with-offshore-wind/. Happily, the […]

The study is summarized in my article “How and why Dominion and other utilities lie” at https://www.cfact.org/2022/02/23/how-and-why-dominion-and-other-utilities-lie/. The great deception is that Dominion proposes to build a huge amount of wind and solar generating […]

By David Wojick, Ph.D. ~ The effect of lots of wind turbines on weather and climate is a small but active research area. Wind power converts wind energy into electricity, thereby removing that energy from the air. The research issue of how taking a lot of energy out might affect weather or climate seems to […]

Wind Makes No Meaningful Contribution To The Grid: The Ciccone/Lehr Rule Of Thumb

By Dr. Jay Lehr ~ This is part three of a tutorial on why wind power is tantamount to a fraud perpetrated daily.  According to the American Wind Association, as we near the end of 2021 there are about 60,000 wind turbines operating in 41 states and two territories. It is not hard to convince […]

By Dr. Jay Lehr ~ You will never see the destruction of animals and the bio-systems going on in faraway places all around the world controlled by China. You will not likely see the hundreds of birds and bats at existing sites in the US and even Bald Eagles killed by the massive turning blades […]
