In the 5-minute video below, there are lots of statements made that are worth quoting.
Many are from environmentalists who now seem to realize something went horribly wrong. “Green yes, but not like this!”
One of my favorites is by Justin Lindholm at the 4:35 mark:
Maybe 10,000 years from now they’ll come around and wonder what went on here. […] Pads and pedestals look like sacrificial sites of some sort, and they are.”
10,000 years? The human species indeed can be frustratingly stupid at times, but not that stupid. I say give them less than a generation, 20-30 years tops. Already people are waking up, now even making protest videos against the madness. The protest is already getting into full swing.
I wonder how many of the environmentalists in the video were staunch supporters of these windmills in the beginning, before the heavy equipment rolled in and removed the mountain tops? I’d suspect most of them were. For example, see here at the 8:25 mark of this do-it-yourself TV.
Another part I find amusing is the one with activist Gaelen Brown near a home surrounded by panels at the 4-minute mark. Nothing like endowing the landscape with a little traditional Vermont charm! Sorry Gaelen, but that yard with the panels and home look god-awful ugly. I’m glad that house is not in my neighborhood. At least put the damn panels on the roof.
Dream eco-home? It looks more like a solar-powered guard tower for a prison. Other amenities: no windows facing south (or the panels are facing north), the roof cannot support very many panels, installed on the ground instead, and the sun hardly shines – which is typical in Vermont. Classic example of what the Big Green virus can do to someone’s mind. The architect of this beauty was definitely out to lunch. (Photo source: energizevermont.org video)
German readers should send this video to the leaders of Baden Wurttemberg and Bavaria, as they too appear to have been recently infected by the Big Green virus, which leads to clouded thinking and even to irreversible madness in some cases.
Finally, one last point on Gaelen’s remark about “cheap” solar panels. Today solar panel energy is still about 10 times more expensive than conventional electricity, and its forced ineffective use is one of the reasons other products like cement and glass are getting more expensive.
