another netflix Carbon Nation 2010NR1hr 22m Average of 33,891 ratings: 3.8 stars Bypassing politics and fingerpointing, this forward-thinking documentary zeroes in on enterprising individuals -- from a wind farmer to a solar-panel retrofitter -- who are devising business-minded ways to avert the looming climate crisis. The cross-country expedition yields encounters with Virgin Group CEO Richard Branson, Earth Day founder Denis Hayes and former CIA director James Woolsey, along with everyday pioneers in low-carbon living. Good solutions are always welcome. People not knowing the true causes of things is not. Watch HAARP:Holes In Heaven. Also watch Aerosol Crimes. The patent holder of HAARP Dr. Bernard Eastland openly says in this documentary that HAARP can manipulate the weather. Manipulate or modify not make. The radicals are taking over the environmental movement. Yes, as a political weapon & a political cult of true believers aka useful fools enable a looting of the public treasury..

Navy plan for turbines concerns U.S. agency ‘In view of the challenges of high visibility turbines in this sensitive location, it is incumbent on the Navy to consider alternatives to land wind turbines that might achieve the goal of reducing energy consumption.’

Representatives from Portsmouth,Rhode Island in the last three years spent many hours going to cities and towns of Massachusetts and Rhode Island telling locals and politicians the benefit of commercial wind. These cities and towns need to be notified about the ongoing wind turbine fiasco in Portsmouth. The same representatives need to reach out to all the communities today and tell the real truth about commercial wind and what a colossal failure happened in Portsmouth. Local Portsmouth officials claim the town owned AAER 1.5 MW wind turbine business failure had come as a surprise. The Town of Portsmouth spent years looking at brand name wind turbines like GE and Furlander .They spent almost four years figuring out if they should buy a small 660 Kilowatt turbine like the Abbey or go with a larger 1.65 Megawatt turbine.After four years of so called "Due Diligence" they went out and bought a mongrel 1.5 Megawatt turbine from a start up commercial wind turbine company ! Why ? because it was cheap and they were deceived by the wind industry ! The wind industry is a bunco scheme looting the taxpayers every day !

“Bill Carson” Good golly man! I don’t think I’ve ever experienced a naysayer quite as negative as you. I mean yeah…the Portsmouth WTG has some problems. Maybe wind-generated electricity in general may have some problems. But that doesn’t mean we can’t, or shouldn’t, strive to overcome them and perfect the process. Do you think other forms of electrical generation were perfect on first attempt? Of course they weren’t. Nuclear, hydro, solar, etc. all had to return to the drawing board. Like any form of energy generation, it took time to perfect those methods. You appear to have a broad understanding of the wind-generated electricity industry. Maybe instead of being such a proponent of complaining about some setbacks you could actually make some constructive suggestions to make it work. I had a CO in the military that would often say: “Don’t tell me why I can’t. Tell me how I can.” Imagine if after one failure at flight the Wright Brothers would have given up. Lighten up Bill.
