No Upside: Wind Developers Pull Plug On Massive Offshore Projects Deemed ‘Uneconomic’

Some of America’s biggest planned offshore wind projects have recently been axed, with more to follow.

Plain Stupid: The Only Thing Dumber Than Wind Power Is Offshore Wind Power

Wind power comes with a staggering price tag, taking these things out to sea sends those costs into orbit: intermittent offshore wind power is six times the cost of gas-fired power that’s always available on demand.

Endangered Atlantic Right Whales Next Victims of Offshore Wind Power Push

Not Right: Offshore Wind Turbines Threaten Endangered Atlantic Right Whales

The environmental destruction wreaked by offshore wind power is one almighty whale of a problem. While all power generation systems take a toll on the environment, it’s only the wind industry that claims moral superiority over all others. That tenuous claim – which rests on the ‘we’re saving the planet’ mantra chanted by the wind […]

Offshore Offside: Lawyers Line Up to Smash Atlantic Coast Wind Power Projects

Big-spending Joe Biden wants to squander untold $billions of taxpayer’s hard-earned on wind power, including thousands of turbines to be planted across the pristine and productive fisheries situated off the New England and mid-Atlantic coasts.
