AWEA spins a story about wind for the new Congress

November 8th, 2010

Now that the political winds have shifted, the American Wind Energy Association has taken a new snapshot of the horizon.
What do they see? Bipartisan support.
Really. They say they do. Those words came up often at an AWEA web conference on Friday to discuss the future of wind under the new split Congress. It became such a mantra — you could almost hear the turbines at Texas’ Horse Hollow wind farm whirring out the words bi-paaar-ti-saaaan sup-poooorrrrt, as AWEA CEO Denise Bode and others counted the ways they hope that “bipartisan support” will work to keep government wind supports alive in this witheringly tough economy.

Now before we dismiss this as naive thinking, we should remember that wind power actually does have serious bipartisan roots. Elected officials in 29 states have put targets for clean energy into place, pushing utilities to make room for wind- and solar-generated electricity that doesn’t pollute like the fossil fuels (mainly coal) they have relied upon.

The tragedy of coal; the promise of clean energy

April 9th, 2010

I had been thinking about how this week’s mine accident that claimed 25 lives is just one more way the true cost of coal is being revealed. Coal is only cheap if you fail to factor in the loss of life, the long-term human health effects, the environmental devastation both in the immediate area of coal mining, the regions near coal-fired plants and finally, to the Earth’s atmosphere. Do these costs need to be more far-reaching before we face these facts?
