      you'll return your check to the PR outfit you're working for and admit to them you've got no discernable skill at what you're presumably being paid for. Some people aren't cut out for astroturfing.

      I can understand your dislike for facts, but I can not sympathise with it.

      Stop wasting my time by posting things anybody can find on the right coal industry site and I'll be happy to ignore your existence.

      I gave up on this a while ago...these diaries are a wind powered echo chamber.  You cannot have a reasonable discussion here on this subject because you'll just get shouted down.

        "reasonable discussion" is Big Coal shills (or worse, "useful idiots") repeating Big Coal talking points while the rest of us believe everything you've got to say, you aren't going to get it here.

        The patience of people with NIMBY types also is pretty much at an end... given that the choices for humanity are to:

        • reduce the amount of greenhouse gases we dump into the air in the next decade
        • die off

        people don't by and large have a whole lot of patience with "but, but this might reduce my property values" or "but, this might interfere with my precious views."

        Unlike you, I've got a windfarm nearby. You can see a picture downthread. And as far as I know, nothing awful has happened in connection with it and I don't feel tragically put upon because I can see a place in which electricity is being made.

        If you and your neighbors are worried about a windfarm project in your back yards, don't go to the Heartland Institute and load up on right-wing Big Coal talking points, find an alternate site and raise the money to move the windfarm, don't expect the taxpayers to bail you out and don't waste our time on "the horrors" of wind power.

        Those of us who've researched this or have enough engineering background to know how this sort of thing works know better. Particularly given the known problems of continuing to generate electricity with fossil fuel.

        With respect to "Window", just click on his name and you'll find out that the only posts he's ever put here are his anti-environmental posts of today. Also note that he's also the only one I've suggested is likely to be an astroturfer.

          how the fuck do you know?

          "Unlike you, I've got a windfarm nearby"

          see...I don't even have to post anything, you can have your own arguement just fine all by yourself

          •  there is a reason (0+ / 0-)

            why people look at windfarm opponents as stupid. You can discover it by looking in the mirror.

            Or go find a Big Coal propaganda site and learn your talking points better next time.

            I think your problem isn't that you don't like facts, it's that you're not smart enough to distinguish fact from fiction.
