In his opinion piece at The Daily Caller titled, Beyond the spin: The truth about wind energy generation, Lance Brown suggests that based on “cost, reliability, and cleanliness … an energy plan that is heavily reliant on wind-generated energy is not realistic.”
He states that “the goal of converting to an energy plan relying heavily on renewable sources is noble, but comes with a hefty price tag.” Further, “with so many clean resources available—including nuclear power and natural gas—we shouldn’t force states to generate power from particular sources mandated by the federal government.”
We at Allegheny Treasures disagree slightly with his summary statement that “although the use of wind energy may make sense in a given state, it doesn’t make sense as a primary source of power nationwide.” It is our opinion that industrial wind simply doesn’t make sense as a source of power, period!
Mr. Brown is Executive Director of PACE (Partnership for Affordable Clean Energy), a coalition of working people, business owners, environmentalists, and trade organizations who are fighting for fair, responsible energy policies.
