2-“’China Wind Power Outlook 2010′ report expects China’s wind sector to hit at least 150 GW and possibly 230 GW over the next ten years.” (Guess who wrote the report. OK … here’s a hint – Greenpeace, the Chinese Renewable Energy Industries Association (CREIA) and the Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC).)

Assuming “China Wind Power Outlook 2010′ report expects China’s wind sector to hit at least 150 GW and possibly 230 GW over the next ten years.” is accurate, i.e. installed capacity, 12 to 23 GW is usable energy if they manage to do as well as the UK’s best field, 26% of capacity. Less line losses, less unrequired production due to time of day, less unusable due to variance in output too rapid, less leccy fed to turbines to keep the vanes turning when the wind drops, etc.
Around 8% of capacity is useful.
Propaganda just feeds profits for investors like gore CO2 credit co’s (fraudulent iou’s drawn against the west’s public.).
On 4. Audra Parker: “…subsidies to line the pockets of a private developer” also those banksters, politicians, advisors like Oxburgh of the UK Royal Society and like ilk that have invested heavily in the fraud and are desperate to maintain the flow of cash from the public via energy bills and tax hikes to banksters, finance houses, investors and of course their own accounts. They should be made to repay every penny (cent) defrauded from the goyim. Then break rocks for a time.

Gas is the cure for wind. Centuries worth in shale alone.
