Hurry, Hurry Get The Turbines Spinning Before Trump Gets Here!

-
Roanoke Times, 11-14-2016, Pg Va 1, 6:  Wind turbines in Botetourt Co. Va.:
Apex Clean Energy says it may have cleared all regulatory hoops by the time that climate change skeptic Trump takes office.
-
Talk about a blast of liberal heifer-dust blowing in the wind!
-
Trump has clearly stated that he favors “all” the power options available and has not expressed opposition to renewables.
However, he is knowledgeable about key energy issues like:
 -
Bill Gates: Renewable’s Cost Astronomical – Switch Green Subsidies To R&D
-
That the man-made AGW global warming movement is more about global wealth redistribution than CO2.  That natural warming-cooling cycles between earth’s glacier-periods are the dominant controlling factors and not mankind.
-
That Setting The Climate Record Straight between science and politics has been suppressed and marginalized.
-
Trump will strive to have the market be the primary driver for energy decisions.
Currently fracked-gas delivered by pipeline (fiercely opposed by Obama and his minions) is penetrating the electric utility systems because of its low cost and reasonable conversion of coal burning boilers to gas.
However there are many plants where gas is not available and coal may continue to be the best value for “the consumer”.
-
75% of the value-add to wind systems are the turbines with their inverters.  The installation and maintenance is the other 25%.
Looking at the Top 10 Wind Turbine Suppliers it’s clear that the major “wind green jobs” have been outsourced and are not here in the US
Nordex. Germany. 3.4%
Ming Yang. China. 3.7% ...
United Power. China. 3.9% ...
Gamesa. Spain. 4.6% ...
GE. U.S. 4.9% ...
Sulzon Group. India. 6.3% ...
Siemens. Germany. 8.0% ...
Enercon. Germany. 10.1%
-
80% of the value-add to electrical solar panel systems are in the solar panels and the DC2AC-inverters.  Again the major “solar green jobs” have been outsourced and are not American jobs!
Six of the 10 solar manufacturers are Chinese (if you count Canadian Solar CSIQ +1.61% which, though based in Canada, has its manufacturing base in China). The two biggest American solar panel makers, First Solar FSLR +2.96% and SunPower SPWR +5.67%, also made the list.
-
Hopefully Trump will require that all energy subsidies be transparent and published and challenged in open debate.
-
Hopefully Trump will require that all those who receive taxpayer funded grants to “study global warming and climate change” be required to make all their work transparent and published and challenged in open debate and fully comply with ALL FOIAs.
It’s way past time to let “the sunshine” shine in on Gore's Inconvenient UnTruth!
