Doug's (farmer/rancher that supports turbines) comments on this program makes him sound like he has been coached by the wind industry. He appears to have all the lines of the industry. For example, Doug's denial that the turbines require spinning backup from a balancing reserve (that emits CO2 in the process) is a company line in a attempt to dupe the public into believing wind turbines produce something other than hot air, higher power rates, and highert taxes.
The power is mostly going to California, folks. Go online and read the Northwest Power and Conservation Council (formerly NWPPC) and BPA publications and get facts, not the spin. The PNW does not need the bat and bird blender eyesore manufactured and built by foreign megacorporations or their subsidiaries (licensed locally to dupe US society). Educate yourself and do not buy into the green money propaganda.
