Jon Boone, environmentalist, naturalist, bird and nature artist, wind energy expert: The headlines are that offshore wind energy is revving up. Wind remains a key resource in the “all of the above” arsenal of energy supply promulgated by two Secretary of Energy yardbirds. Wind opposition remains stuck in its “not in my backyard” orientation because so few have even bothered to grasp the reasons for its utter power dysfunction. It can’t even produce modern power. This is central toward understanding why wind continues to have traction in the public square. Along with the wink and a nod from the usual suspects leading the conventional generation crowd, who have always understood that, the more wind generation, the more need for—uh—fossil fuels. Wink, wink—nod....

Ths photo of offshore gigantic wind turbine sturctures tells a mighty story of the foolishness of wind energy and the low intellectual capacity of business and government officials who sold them and permitted them to be built.there. Here are fundamental negative points against offshore wind energy. Can you seen them in the photo? 1) Wind energy is very weak. So you have to build a lot of structure to capture the wind, like nets to capture fish. 2) Fish nets are the biggest source of pollution in the oceans. Rusted and weathered offshore wind turbines will become another tremendous scource of ocean pollution from hurricanes and winter storms that sink ships and from bankrupt wind energy companies that can't afford the tremendous costs of properly dismanteling them at sea. 3) Jon Boone, John Droz, and hundreds of other real wind experts have documented the utter folly of dillute, variable, sometimes no wind, sometimes furious stormy wind that does not meet any of the requirements of an electrical network for modern civilization. Look at the calm ocean. How much electricity is being produced? Imagine how much rusted, corroded metal and broken turbine blades will fall into the sea from neglect of financially ruined wind energy companies and intellectually bankrupt governments. Civilizations who have survived for millenia know better than to do this. Plentiful, high energy density, controllable nuclear energy is needed to support modern civilizations around the world, not unreliable, variable, very dillute wind energy.
