Will Wind Turbines Eventually leave all that Black Gold Underground?


Craig Abalos writes a thoughtful and fairly well-researched open letter column in the Roswell, NM USA Daily Record which I usually read online from different spots in the World/US. Today I got my hands on a hard copy where Mr Abalos assertively predicts the replacement of fossil fuel with solar/wind power.

In my view, the Roswell activist leans towards Q on the Quixotic-Practical Scale. He has a view of the world the way he wants it to be. Hell, we are all that way aren’t we?

I thought his analogy, of how horses were replaced by cars(if not, Horse Manure Crisis in late 19th century would have literally buried NYC!)¬†being similar to wind power leaving all the black gold in the ground, was somewhat convincing, but not without holes. I would ask Craig to read some of the criticisms, listed as Cons, of wind energy in an article by¬†Murrye Bernard. Also, an electrical engineer friend told me that the current limits of our “grid technology” could only accept around 10% of its energy from wind/solar sources. I could be wrong about my understanding of his claim, but innovation in wind/solar direction could wipe out that limitation anyway.

  1. The piece by Richard Heinberg addresses the claim by Stanford academic Mark Jacobson that USA can go 100% solar-wind-hydro energy.

    I think Mr Abalos should apply for internship under Jacobson. Craig is a misplaced liberal as it stands. He would fit right in with all those pie in the sky “thinkers” in California.

    Read up on Jacobson to discover he is a dreamer who wants the world to be a certain way and creates bad science to support his yearnings.

    1. Abalos whined that he is stuck in a “dinky town 100 miles from nowhere”.

      So Craig, who is forcing you to stay here? You are a crybaby liberal who thinks the government should take care of you. Hall your complaining UBI ass to Santa Fe and do your wacky tabaccy crying with the Hillary supporters there. You are way outnumbered here boy!
