The Next Time a Politician Tries to Sell You on Wind Power...

...don't fall for it!

"For example, on wind energy, we get a tax credit if we build a lot of wind farms. That's the only reason to build them. They don't make sense without the tax credit."

                                                       --- Warren Buffett

And, tonight, the people of Texas (#1 state in the nation for wind power) are paying the price for the white elephant wind turbines the politicians have sold them. 

On this desperately cold night, as of 7pm wind power in Texas was operating at an absurdly low 2.3% of capacity! That percentage will likely continue to drop for at least another few hours. What this means is that the mega-billions spent on wind energy is essentially contributing nothing in this crisis. 

As of 8:49pm, more than a third of Texas' homes and businesses are without power. 

And, that number continues to grow. 

With another ice storm (scroll down) predicted, it could be weeks before everyone gets their power on.
