    Once again the cluelessness of stupid(IE: rightwing) talk radio. New solar and wind is cheaper than coal generated power (Vicky is wrong saying it’s expensive). I thought I’d never see the day that conservatives are against private property rights (though they will condemn private property for industry and fossil fuel products). How can one expect to control what the land is used for if they don’t own it? Maybe Bluestar Dairy should buy the land from the owners who are selling it to the solar company if they must have it for feed production and waste disposal.

      Jeepers gp, you almost had The Gotch with you…

      Almost.

      No question Mother Gaia needs energy alternatives, but the unreliable nature of solar, and wind, simply will not consistently power an electric grid where people may expect uninterrupted on-demand power.

      Especially with the burgeoning number of unproductive, 47%er Lefties that prefer to vote for a living instead of working (in a net gain/productive manner) for it; Road To Serfdom comes to mind.

      Those same people comprise an ever-growing demographic which shows little interest, ability, or desire in fending for, or feeding, themselves.

      Smitten by what the inimitable Dr. Thomas Sowell calls Seductive Beliefs, Lefty Handlers like Feel the Bern and Alexandria 0CRAZY0-Cortez encourage this by promoting victimhoodie AND offering more More MORE high quantity/quality gimmee gimmee free $#!t.

      If I’m reading this right, the siting for the project lies within the fertile, Über productive Empire Prairie.

      Just like the proposed Badger Hollow Solar Farm in Iowa County, it’ll be taking primo arable land out of the rotation PERMANENTLY; that strike you as a good idea?

      Howse about we let Lefty get a little skin in the game and whack a few Eco-Parks for these projects; the Paliafito Eco-Arts Park, Waupaca Eco-Park, and American Players Theatre come to mind…

      GOOD thing this isn’t a fracking operation they’re pushing, am I right

    Geo_, Yer lack of research is again astounding.

    Thomas Williams: 17 Year Wind Industry Professional ”

    “My best calculations over the years put EROI for utility grade wind turbines at between 30:1 to 35:1 which puts wind roughly in the same EROI category as Coal, Gas, and Hydro”.

    In another well-known survey with a different slant, relates that the average time for a windmill to “pay back” it’s production cost is NO LESS than 56 YEARS .

    W-a-y more FACTs are out there. And -Since you said, “Once again the clue-lessness of stupid…” I’d have said, “Ignorant”. And Yes, ignorance has reared its ugly head again, and its name is “George….”

      True cost of fossil fuels? How silly. So, what is the true cost of a song bird? What is the cost of reducing habitat for wild birds? But, it is worse than that. Ole Vicki again has substituted her instantaneous “judgement” for a more accurate analysis and comprehension of the problem. Yes, Ole Vick fails because she uses the same emotionalism of the LEFT and Progressives, seeming to forget that emotion is NOT a substitute for reasoned analysis.

      Who will pay for these new “solar farms” and how is that possible without PSC approval? To whom will any/all electric power from the solar array be sold — and at what price(s) and who guarantees the price each KWH.?

      Solar farm companies will pay in the short run, but ultimately the electric consumers will pay MORE to satisfy the “existential” threat of fossil fuels that are used to produce electric power. …… To whom and under what conditions have the solar array builders planned to sell their electric power? Who agreed to buy this inefficient and subsidized electricity? Is it Wisconsin Public Service? Why is Wis Pub Service planning to raise retail rates by over 9% next year, EVEN AS natural gas rates have declined in a dramatic move? So, the real question is this — who at WPS thought more solar was wise…and who allowed WPS to pass along the inefficient costs of solar to the rate-payers?

      To clarify what is REALLY happening, Ole Vicki should have a PSC staff member educate her …and her audience about REAL dynamics of the proposed construction and operation of the solar farms in this area. At least, that is how I would approach “the problem.” To date, the public conversation about solar, WPS and Blue Star has been silly. Perhaps Ole Vicki will remedy our understanding…………..but based upon her historical failures to ask the right questions, will she rationalize her emotional passion by virtue-signalling the plight of the poh dairy farmer? Or, will she step back and analyze what is really happening?
      We shall see.

        What is the cost of anthropogenic climate change and it’s resultant loss of habitat? Who will pay for solar farms, the energy users. Geez, here in SE Wisconsin rate payers are paying WE Energies for a coal plant that is off line and not producing energy because it was no longer cost effective to operate, switching instead to natural gas and “other sources”. We subsidize fossil fuel production and it’s use in energy production, why not alternatives? Why are we not paying the inefficient costs(a carbon tax) of coal and natural gas? Wisconsin is in the top 10, 10th to be exact of states dependent on coal for energy production.

    All those wind farms would be keeping us warm and cozy this morning when the wind speed falls to zero at a frosty 10 below. And solar doesn’t kick in until the temperature hits its minimum. It’s called science that the left seems to think that we don’t believe in.

    Clearly we need to be aware of the massive amount of land necessary for solar energy. Only poor quality land should be used. Not productive land. We need to stop scaring our kids and lying to them about wind and solar.
    Currently 1.5 percent of our energy requirements are from solar.
    To replace the necessary 8 billion megawatt hours used in the United states each year. It would require 57,000 square miles of land to house the 19 billion photovoltaic solar panels. Or,
    We would need 2 million wind turbines that require 500,000 square miles of land. They kill hundreds of thousands of birds and bats every year. That is with 56,000 turbines currently, imagine the slaughter with 2 million turbines.
    Then of course you need 2 billion 1/2 ton Tesla battery packs to store the energy, for when there is no wind and it gets dark.
    That is just what is necessary now.
    Then you have to take into account, the mining of rare earth elements, like cobalt, neodymium, lithium, etc.
    The mining, the fabrication, transportation, construction, and the reclamation, involves enormous carbon dioxide emissions.
    The environmental degradation is gargantuan. The C02 output is never recouped and, so no climate change advantage, but horrible results from the drawing board to reclamation and recycling.
    So let’s get real about the current state of affairs.
    So called green energy is extremely expensive, and environmentally destructive.

    Electric cars require to much power generation, and pollution producing materials.
    Natural gas is the best for now.

    Sodium cooled fast reactors,
    Generation IV nuke reactors are the only way to go for future large scale power generation.

    Read more about it, at Paul Driessen and the committee for a constructive tomorrow.

      Are the -20 and -30 readings occurring in Alaska every day since January real? Do you know about the all-time record low temperature that was set in Greenland…umm…last month!!! Is the rain that is now falling on Australia real in contrast to everyone saying they didn’t know when the fires would end? Is the below zero temperature set in Madison last night real? On Valentine’s Day in 1911, it was 70+ in parts of the Midwest. Was that real or were their thermometers back then really that bad? If that happened today, everybody would be running around screaming their heads off about the global warming.
      The weather has happened before – we like to think that we are in control of more things than we actually are, but when we zoom out 200 miles from the surface, none of what we humans do can be seen. We are in more danger of annihilating ourselves in war than whatever effects we supposedly have on climate.

        Bob,

        You’re right. Believing that mankind can control either the weather or the climate show us the hubris, narcissism an control-freak totalitarian mentality of low-flow, lockstep, Lefty lemmings.
        We are about as significant to the GlowBull Climate Crisis as a tick on a charging rhinoceros.
        We can’t change Earth’s climate by giving money to proglibocratic political causes or Leftist orthodoxies. I know, I tried to change the climate yesterday when it was -9 degrees F, and let my F-150 idle longer than usual.

        Co2 is not a pollutant, rather, it is a necessary ingredient to all Life here on Earth.
        The #1 most abundant greenhouse gas is H2O, water vapor, yet none of the Chicken Little GlowBull Warming Alarmists are on a mission from God to stop the H2O cycle.

        Alternative energy sources all come with good and bad. There is no perfect source. Personally I like the new technology of hydroelectric power. It’s non-polluting, renewable and can be made more compatibly eco-friendly. But I wouldn’t put a fish ladder on the Yahara River through the isthmus. Those socialist spawn have spawned enough bad ideas. For the sake of all that’s good and Godly, I don’t want them to propagate any more of their pusillanimous pap and propaganda.

    Climate Criminal Extraordinaire/former UNIPCC Chairman/RR Engineer who writes porn novels in his spare time Rajendra Pachuari dead at 79.

    Part of his legacy? Leaving the real scary prediction of the Himalayan Glaciers disappearing by 2035 in the AR4 (Assessment Report).

    That the REAL year was 2350 and the IPCC had to embarrassingly withdraw their erroneous claim and apologize is inconsequential.

    It accomplished what it was intended to accomplish, securing additional funding in the amount of $500 large for, amongst others, TERI (The Energy and Resources Institute).

    TERI Director General? Rajendra Pachuari himself. Hmmm!

    Anywho, Pachuari replaced the widely respected Bob Watson ~2000 at the behest of a memo from EXXON-MOBIL. Why? It was determined that Pachuari would be ‘friendlier” to business.

    The type of “business” to whom he’d be friendlier to is NOT a subject Warmalista AlarmaCYSTS prefer to address.

    A Mumbai-based Indian multinational conglomerate with business ties to none other than Rajendra K. Pachauri, the TATA Group, shuttered British Steelmaking concern Corus Redcar, throwing 1700 people out of work.

    Why? to cash in on windfall profits of ~$2 billion by selling its carbon credits.

    Well, Corus Redcar was an evil polluter and those furloughed workers deserved their fate, am I right? So, Pachuari really cut down on global pollution so the real GREEN ($) is due recompense for his selfless efforts.

    ‘Sides, he’s a real real deserving Nobel Laureate, just like Fat Albert and the CHOSEN ONE, isn’t he?
