Wind Energy Is Not Economically Feasible, And Costs Jobs To Boot


Here is another story revealing that wind energy is not an economically feasible energy alternative.  IBD cites a study of green energy jobs in the UK and their effect on traditional jobs.  ” (F)or every job created in the alternative energy sector, almost four jobs are lost in the rest of the economy.”  So not only is wind energy much more costly to produce than by traditional methods, heavily dependent on government subsidies to compete, but it costs net jobs, which the taxpayers have to subsidize through unemployment benefits. Studies throughout Europe confirm the findings of the UK report.  Lost jobs are an added hidden cost of green energy.

Claims that alternative energy will produce jobs may be true, but it will cost many more than it creates.  It’s a liberal pipe dream and a scam.  Local politicians all across the country are jumping on the green bandwagon.  Let’s hope they soon see the light (one not powered by a windmill,) before they waste billions of taxpayers dollars on these fruitless endeavors.  Lets hope common sense prevails in the U. S., rather than political correctness.
