The wind industry is built on lies and runs on subsidies, so it’s no surprise that the market has taken revenge on wind power outfits pitching up overblown output forecasts.

Permanent Part-Time Power: Wind Power Rush Leaves Texans Scrambling for Reliable Electricity

Being a weather-dependent enterprise, no one thinks of promising their kids a kite flying holiday, ahead of time.
