A turbine is nothing more than a motor …
Essentially a turbine is a motor … instead of driving the motor with an electrical current to produce motion, a wind turbine works backwards, using the motion of the wind to drive the motor to produce electricity.
But what really goes on inside the turbine head …
Here is a cross-section illustration of the motor that drives the majority of green-power turbines in the United States.
The parties rotate around the taxpayer’s money generating heat, light, buzz and an electrical current that can shock the sensibilities of anyone impartially observing the process.
Bottom line …
While wind power, solar power, geothermal power and other generation methods have their place – most are not reliable, cost-effective or sufficient to supply the energy needs of an industrial America.
Without taxpayer subsidies or legislation demanding that consumers use energy generated by these green methods, they would never be accepted by the consuming public.
Our nation must develop energy independence to prevent middle eastern oil sources from holding America hostage to their oil production and the use of our petro-dollars to support terrorism and despotism in the region – as well as subverting the American political process by funneling money to corrupt politicians.
To achieve energy independence, we must exploit our own petroleum-based assets in a clean manner and implement nuclear energy. All of which are sustainable, cost-effective and reliable.
We need to elect honest brokers to serve “We the People” in 2012 – in the White House, Senate, House of Representatives and in our local and state governments. Unless we do this, we are doomed to spending billions on nonsensical green energy projects which benefit relatively few people.
Proof: Obama and his fellow travelers shoveled one-half BILLION dollars into a green energy company teetering on the brink of bankruptcy – bailing out the original investors (and not so coincidentally Obama’s big contributor) and sticking “We the People” with the bill.
Let’s make sure we are getting our money’s worth when we generate, transmit and consume energy. No special deals.
One-Half BILLION flushed down the drain …
|Solyndra Spent Liberally to Woo Lawmakers Until the End, Records Show …
The 1,100 full- and part-time employees who were abruptly laid off two weeks ago aren’t the only ones whose paychecks have been affected by the sudden and dramatic failure of bankrupt solar energy company, Solyndra Inc.
Because for its brief lifespan, Solyndra proved to be pretty good for the lobbying community.
According to records filed with the Clerk of the House and a search of disclosure forms compiled by the Center for Responsive Politics, Solyndra spent nearly $1.9 million on lobbying activities over a period of 43 months from 2008 to 2011. <Source>
