CAN WIND TURBINE POWER COMPETE WITH FOSSIL FUEL FOR POWER?

Environmental Damage

Large Wind Turbine farm 100s of acres

Salt Spray generated from first Turbines cover all other Turbines Maintenance disaster

Look at the massive environment damage to install the wind turbines in Picture 1, Picture 2 is a major Wind Turbine farm, picture 3 is salt spray covering all the other Turbines.

Then there’s the well-chewed chestnut about wind power being cheaper than coal or gas fired power along with claims that wind power is actually ‘competing’ with conventional generation sources.

Issues With Wind Farms

By Jack Dini —— Bio and Archives–March 1, 2019

Global Warming-Energy-Environment

The International Energy Agency released data that revealed the percentage of total global primary energy demand provided by wind and solar is 1.1 percent. Hardly the kind of number derived from wind and solar lobbies.

Another report confirms what should have been obvious from the start: the more ‘variable’ wind and solar are introduced into any electricity system, the more they make it both more expensive and less reliable.

World energy demand has been growing at about l percent a year for nearly 40 years. Between 2013 and 2014, using International Energy Agency data, it grew just under 2,000 terawatt-hours.

If wind turbines were to supply all that growth but no more, how many would need to be built each year asks Matt Ridley. The answer is nearly 350,000, since a two-megawatt turbine can produce about 0.005 terawatt-hours per annum. That’s one-and-a-half times as many as have been built in the world since governments started pouring consumer funds in this industry in the early 2000s.

Ridley adds, “At a density of, very roughly, 50 acres per megawatt, typical for wind farms, that many turbines would require a land area greater than the British Isles, including Ireland, every year. If we kept this up for 50 years, we would have covered every square mile of a land area the size of Russia with wind farms.

Remember, this would be just to fulfill the new demand for energy, not to displace the vast existing supply of energy from fossil fuels, which currently supply 80 percent of global energy needs.”

David MacKay has another calculation. He compares the estimate of British wind potential with current installed wind power worldwide. The windmills that would be required to provide the UK with 20kWh/d per person amount to 50 times the entire wind hardware of Denmark; 7 times all the wind farms of Germany; and double the entire fleet of all wind turbines in the world.

Also worth considering are offshore wind farms which are exposed to the corrosive effects of sea water. At the big Danish wind farm, Horns Reef, all 80 turbines had to be dismantled and repaired after only 18 months’ exposure to the sea air. The Kentish Flats turbines off the coast of Kent England seem to be having similar problems with their gear boxes, one-third needing replacement during the first 18 months.

Offshore wind is extremely expensive. The first US offshore wind farm went online off Rhode Island in 2017, at $150,000 per household powered. The newest US nuclear reactor cost $4.6 billion but powers 4.5 million homes at $1040 per household. That’s a $149,000 per family difference.4

An offshore wind project in Virginia carries a likely under estimated cost of $300 million. Virginians will pay 25 times the US market price for the turbines, and they pay 78 cents/kilowatt-hour for their intermittent electricity. That’s 26 times the 3 cents/kilowatt-hour wholesale price for coal, gas, hydroelectric or nuclear electricity in Virginia, almost nine times the normal household price.

Then there’s the well-chewed chestnut about wind power being cheaper than coal or gas fired power along with claims that wind power is ‘competing’ with conventional generation sources. The best scenario for wind plants is the figure quoted at most wind plant informational sites, where they give a life expectancy of 25 years, but the truth could be closer to only 20 years, and some might only reach a life expectancy of 15 years. A new coal fired plant has a life expectancy of 50 years.

Can a Muslim in the U.S. House represent true American Values?

Can a Muslim in the House represent true American Values?

These remarks are given without shame or apology

By Dr. Ralph “Yankee” Arnold
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez : What should we expect from having a Muslim in the House of Representatives?
America was founded upon the belief that there is only one God and his name is Jehovah–the God of Israel. America established her three branches of government from the Bible, the only Word of God, in Isa 33:22. “For the LORD IS our judge, (our Supreme Court Branch) the LORD IS our lawgiver,(our Legislative Branch) the LORD IS our King (our Executive Branch) He will save us.”
There are no references made to Allah, the Koran, or to Muhammed in any of our founding documents, or etched into our national monuments. But there are much that reference Jehovah, Moses, and the Bible.
If Jehovah is God————  Allah is not
If the Bible is Divine——–   The Koran is not
If Christianity is true———  Islam is not
Islam is founded upon a god – Allah– that does not exist. There is no god named Allah. Allah is not another name that is compatible with the God of Israel. Jehovah had a son named Jesus Christ. The Koran states that Allah has no son.
The religion of Islam offers no love, salvation, grace or mercy. It offers no guarantee of Heaven or escape from Hell. There is no guaranteed offer of a better life.
The Koran is not a holy (divine) book, but a war manual on how to conquer the world. No Muslim can produce evidence of the Koran being anything other than a man-made book. Allah is not God, and the religion of Islam is not a peaceful religion, but one gigantic terrorist network to overthrow every nation on earth. Every Imam (prayer leader) prepares Muslims in their Islamic ideology for future terrorist activities. Every mosque is an ISIS or al-Qaeda cell.
If I could say a word to Muslim mothers:
I plead with every Muslim mother to look at the results of Islam and see if the Koran truly teaches children to hate the Jew, Christian, and all infidels. Why do Muslim mothers want to leave Muslim countries if the Muslim religion is so wonderful, loving, and peaceful?
Studying the Koran causes one to believe in the religion of Islam. The person who believes in the religion of Islam becomes a Muslim. Islam is what makes a Muslim country.
We admire the immigrants from Muslim countries that want to come to America. Christianity produced this one great country and Islam has produced 50 plus countries. Yet, America is greater than all the Muslim countries all put together. Our God is God. Christ gave us rights, love, and freedom. Why can’t Allah do for you what Jehovah has done for us?
But if you bring with you the deeply held beliefs of the Koran and teach them to your children while attending the Mosque, are you not seeking to pervert America into the kind you left? Would you prefer America to be a Christian country or a Muslim country? In order to preserve this as a Christian country, are you willing to accept Jesus Christ as your Savior?
Will you believe that Jehovah (as the only true and living God) loves you and sent his son, Jesus Christ, to pay for your sins? When you believe on Christ alone for salvation, you receive the mercy of God (guarantee to escape Hell) that Allah does not offer, and you receive Heaven by grace (not by good works or killing someone), that shows you how much God loves you.
That love is not offered by Allah. Don’t you desire something better? Don’t you see that it is the belief in the Koran that is the foundation for producing TERRORISTS?
Islam constitutes a clear and present danger to the peace of the world. No true Muslim that really believes the Koran can honor the U.S. Constitution. The ultimate goal of the religion of Islam is to replace the U.S. Constitution with the Koran.
If the Muslim nations around the world desire the extermination of the nation of Israel in general and all Jews in particular, why are they here in America when they know that America is Israel’s greatest protector and Islam’s greatest enemy? Are you not, Ocasio-Cortez, trying to turn Congress against Israel?
Why would we go around the world to fight the religion of Islam only to give them free access to cross our country’s borders? We allow them the right to bring their war manual (Koran) into the United States, build their mosques, come into our public schools to teach our children the Islamic faith, vote in our elections, all the while knowing their professed ultimate intention is to bring down America.
I am not preaching or telling anyone to hate any person. I’m telling you about their hate of our God, our America, our Christians and Jews and the state of Israel. Just because I know the future of this world as recorded in the Bible, does not remove my responsibility to do all the right I can while resisting evil in this world. Terrorists don’t have to come here from other countries when they can be produced right here.
The only way a Muslim can practice his faith is to take away ours. Look at the wars that are fought around the world. The majority of them are Muslims trying to overthrow some country they did not previously own. Why do you suppose that over 50 nations are now practicing Muslims? Do you think those countries were won by the beauty of Islam, or was it by the murdering of the opposition?
Here are my humble suggestions for every Muslim that claims to love America and her freedoms, and wants to see her stay that way. They either MUST CHANGE THEIR BELIEFS or try to change ours. Our differences are incompatible and are on a collision course. Are they willing to destroy our country in order to make it like the one from which they fled?
·       Since it is impossible to love America and the Religion of Islam at the same time, what is your choice? If you love flowers, you must hate weeds.
·       Since America loves the Christian, Jew, and Israel and the Koran teaches a Muslim to hate the Christian, Jew, and the nation of Israel, are you willing to violate the Koran in order to live in America?
·       Because you love your children and do not desire them to grow up to be terrorists, will you vow not to teach the Koran to your children?
·       Since Mohammed is not truly a prophet of Jehovah (there is no other God) and no Imam speaks for Jehovah, will you promise to no longer attend or send your children to a mosque?
As a proud American, will you publicly state your love for Israel and pray that Jehovah will bless and protect these Jewish people from all Muslim nations?
Since our two belief systems are not compatible and cannot co-exist, I’m sure you must realize that we are on a collision course of ideologies that can only be solved by bloodshed and surrender. Since there are Muslim nations that have declared war on America (whom they call the great Satan) what guarantees can you give that your coming to America under peaceful terms, are not part of a war-plan to infiltrate in the cause of Islam?
Since we will not adopt your belief system, is it not reasonable to assume that your entry into America is not for peaceful purposes, but to eventually use whatever tactic is necessary to overthrow our country?
What do you so dislike about the religion of Islam that would cause you to flee from your country?
·       Of all the Muslim nations in the world, how many of them grant to the Christian faith the right to practice their faith without persecution?
·       Name the greatest Muslim nation that gives to you the greatest liberty to practice your Muslin faith and why you did not choose to go there?
Please read and believe
·       God loves you and so do I.
John 3:16 “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
·       Salvation is a free gift. 
Ephesians 2:8 “For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:”
Ephesians 2:9 “Not of works, lest any man should boast.
·       You can know you have eternal life.
I John 5:13  These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God.

Former US Navy SEAL Ephraim Mattos Responds to CNN’s Don Lemon – November 1, 2018

Thursday, November 1, 2018 — Former US Navy SEAL, Ephraim Mattos, has responded to comments made by Don Lemon on CNN’s Cuomo Prime Time.

“We have to stop demonizing people and realize the biggest terror threat in this country is white men, most of them radicalized to the right, and we have to start doing something about them.” — Don Lemon on CNN (October 29, 2018)

Here is Mattos’ response:

“After surviving three wars, a gunshot wound, a near fatal drowning, a failed parachute, Taliban ambushes, ISIS snipers, mortars, mine-fields, suicide bombers and laying down my life for the cause of freedom while fighting shoulder-to-shoulder with my brother Arabs, Asians, Blacks, Hispanics, Christians, Muslims, Jews, Buddhists, Animists, and Atheists, I have now returned home to the USA where a CNN host has labeled me as a radicalized right wing terrorist simply because of my gender and the color of my skin.

I represent just one of the hundreds of thousands of conservative white men who have fought to preserve freedom in this great Nation and in other nations. My forefathers are the 3% who founded this Republic against the might of the British Army. It was white Conservative men who died by the tens of thousands after charging into our southern states to free our black brothers from the slavery imposed on them by the Liberal left. We were the ones who acknowledged that women have a right to vote. We held the line in WWI and charged the beaches of Normandy in WWII. We have fought for freedom and liberty for generations and we continue to do so today alongside all of our brothers and sisters regardless of their race or religion.

In the early 1930s, Hitler said the same thing about the Jews that Don Lemon of CNN just said about white men. This is the true face of the Democratic Party. First they enslaved and killed blacks, and now they use them to spew hatred and lies against the very people who have fought for generations to free them and uplift them.   Remember that when you vote!

One final thought: To make a point, I have referred to myself as a “white male” in the previous sentences multiple times, but I must make it clear that I identify as simply “American,” not as “white” or “male” or “Republican.”

Although blatantly racist and hateful, do not let Don Lemon’s ignorant words drive you into viewing yourself only by your race and religion.Identity politics does not lead to freedom. It only leads to hatred and division and an “us vs. them” mentality.

If CNN does not fire Don Lemon, it only goes to show that they are truly the “enemy of the people.”
