Via Althouse, since I’ve been on a plane all day and currently have the intellectual capacity of a TSA agent.
I’m not going to pretend this documentary is fair. And I’m sure the Left will find it was funded by the Koch Brothers or something. But I do know that we have looked at wind power with a thousandth of the skepticism with which we’ve looked at, say, nuclear. There is a downside to wind power; there are greedy money-grubbing corporations involved; and — as we’ve seen with this Administration — green energy involves lots of influence-peddling and corruption.
I’m not saying wind power isn’t part of our future. I am saying that the issues raised in the trailer (and presumably the documentary) need to be part of the discussion. There are reasons we turned our backs on wind power a couple of centuries ago.
