Mitt Romney Said.

From the Columbus Dispatch.

Two days ago, in The Columbus Dispatch, Mitt Romney said that the United States can be an energy superpower. He then outlined his "energy policy".

This is what Mitt had to say about the role of industrial wind and solar:

In place of real energy, Obama has focused on an imaginary world where government-subsidized windmills and solar panels could power the economy. This vision has failed. His promise of 5 million green jobs vanished as fast as the $500 million he gave to his campaign donors at now-bankrupt Solyndra. His goal of 1 million electric cars went up in flames alongside the Chevy Volt batteries that prompted a recall of all 8,000 sold so far.

    Good morning JLL,

    This comment is from my hubby.

    Mitt Romney is not just shooting from the hip here with such a bold statement. As a presidential candidate he and his strategists must be on to something. Could it be that they have actually been reading the world news and growing disfavor of wind farms? There are two factions. First of all the growing resentment of the people. Second, the reality that politicians are recognizing that such a huge investment at some point has to turn a profit without gouging the public with five-fold electricity costs--after fed and local subsidy. Wind farms can't do that and the voters will no longer stand for it. I am an Obama supporter but will vote for the interest of the North Country first. And wind farms are not in our best interest. Same with Owens who I supported last time. If they pass anymore subsidy for wind farms they have lost support.

  2. Good morning, Ms. Morning.

    I always look forward to your wakening comment.

    "in place of real energy"

    This reminds me of two terms that I have often used (Stolen from readers, of course.)

    "Puny producers of power."

    "White towers of testosterone."

    On May 8, 2011, I left my home in Glenmore due to many health problems that are a result from the Shirley wind project built at the end of 2010. Inside my home, I was able to detect when the turbines were turning on and off by the uncharacteristic sensation in my ears. In early 2011, I started noticing extreme headaches, ear pain and sleep deprivation, all three things that had been either a rarity for me, or nonexistent. This caused me to struggle especially with my high school work. After staying away from my home for a week and a half, my symptoms started to subside. The longer I was away, the better I felt.
    Due to these health issues, I spent all summer living in a camper with my family away from the turbines, only returning to the Shirley area when necessary. It would take me around three days after being in the area for my ears to drain and for pressure to release from my head. At the end of August, my family reluctantly purchased another small house away from the wind turbines, leaving us paying two mortgages.
