Wind Energy Nothing More Than A Fraudulent Scheme

Tony Elliott — The Western Center for Journalism — May 30, 2013

When it comes to wind farms and their supposed generation of renewable electricity, one must examine the definition of the word “fraud”. Dictionaries define it as deceit, trickery, sharp practice, or breach of confidence, perpetrated for profit or to gain some unfair or dishonest advantage.

The fact that we are told that wind energy is helping in any way to lower our use of fossil fuel-based electricity fits well within the definition of fraud. In reality, in the United States, we have thousands of wind turbines currently in operation; yet the official estimate of actual electricity produced is 1% or less nationwide (and as high as 2% in some states.) California can be used as a prime example of fraudulent estimations of actual wind generated electricity. Here, it is said that wind-generated electricity makes up about 1.5 percent of the overall state usage of electricity.

However, this estimate is nothing more than an outrageous lie. California has a population of 40 million, as well as the most wind farms in operation. Thus, the state should be able to be used as an example for the whole US, as far as actual electricity generated by wind, if you consider the total number of turbines in operation along with the overall population.

So, both California and the US should have the same percentage when it comes to the actual amount of wind-generated electricity. However, California is estimated to have half of a percentage more than the rest of the country. This is because the wind farm industry simply does not really know what percentage of electricity wind farms generate because they do not meter the production of electricity or the amount of grid power used to maintain the turbines.

What this essentially means is that no one in the wind energy industry really has an idea of what is produced or used.

With this in mind, for them to even give estimates of wind-generated electricity is fraudulent. This is because it doesn’t matter if their estimates are at 0 or 10% due to the fact that the fossil fuel is used in the manufacture and production of the wind turbines themselves. The construction of the wind farms puts the whole wind farm industry at such a deficit in fossil fuels used before they even go into operation, and they have no chance of even coming close to producing enough electricity to ever get out of the hole. This doesn’t take into consideration the fact that each turbine uses more grid electricity while in use than it will ever produce.

Realistically, we have a whole industry scamming billions off the public under the guise of producing renewable electricity from wind. The very idea that wind-generated electricity is helping reduce our dependence on fossil fuel is the biggest fraud to ever be bestowed on both the American public as well as the world population in general.  Continue reading, here…..
