Imagine if >you< promised a whole pie and delivered one with three Quarters missing! But imagine further…. what if you told the world it would be the most magnificent Pie of all time, and then it tasted like a slug scraped from the bottom of your shoe?
“The Ivanpah solar energy project is generating only 1/4 of the energy it promised and is looking for a $560 million fed bailout to make payment on a $1.6 billion taxpayer loan?”
“Ivanpah has also become notorious for burning up birds in mid flight. Workers call them “streamers” after their black trails of smoke as they fall to the ground”.
The DOE robs you blind through the public purse, and you won’t say a word? They’re no different from highway men I think.
Amonix a previous under performer, did it ever meet the promise? Too bad all the Investigative reporters are dead. But with that said, is it time to encourage our Grandchildren to look at that trade? It seems the world could use a million good Investigative reporters.
Cow Pies out in the field, they’re worth a fortune? All you need do is paint them green. I know a woman who ruled on what was greenest, she helped pick the prize winner. She had no knowledge of green, but her degree in English Lit allowed her to market the occasion with a special flair.
It was some years ago, I made fun of Jon Ralston in Las Vegas. Jon had invited the Amonix hypester on TV, and I thought he gave them free pass. Once those monoliths got placed in the field, there was the sound of silence! Did Jon Ralston ever wonder why? Did he ever take a moment to look back? One of the Gang Greenies I contacted was frustrated when he was denied access to those Amonix power plants, all he wanted to do was praise the effort and marvel at the monoliths, but it seemed the keeper of the gate didn’t want the limelight.
Before these Monoliths were planted, it was like the circus had come to town, a major assembly plant in Vegas, and it was world news! Those of us who follow the gang greenies knew about that Amonix power plant in Spain, were those Spaniards happy with those monoliths that left as big of scar on their land? Reporters of our age report on what’s dropped into their in basket, but it seems in also needs to be double spaced, and in digital form. It need be like pabulum fit for a baby, nothing hard to chew.
We know how necessary the Media is, we need them awake, and not in some narcotic stupor, or outright owned and given their opinions. Do I owe Jon Ralston an apology?
Did he ever look back on those fields of 7700s and ask if they would earn their keep? I think there’s a larger question, and it has to do with even bigger scars on the land. We can guess that those monoliths on Easter Island did little more than exhaust a generation of Life’s energy, did it lead to an exhausted food supply? Was there also the sound of silence once those great Monoliths were all tipped up?
And now Ivanpagh, how did it get built? Is there a single reporter, a single entity that ever went on record to ask, “will this really work?” I did note a reporter at the LA times, she was critical, and shared that the early performance of Ivanpagh was not looking good. Of course the dim-witted, corrupt, and religious left pummeled her, and I wonder if she lost her job? And just maybe that’s what Ralston knows.. does he need to survive living under Harry Reid’s nose?
Today is Veteran’s Day, and a large gift to all Veterans is the promise that a bloated and corrupt leadership at the VA will get axed. But for those who care to note, the DOE is just as broken, and the EPA models itself after a broken D.O.E.
Ivanpah is like a Trojan Horse, those who worship the sun are mesmerized, and I’m not so sure they’ll ever care if it works or not. Those who own the tower are dropping down ropes, and lowering themselves into the public purse.
God forgive the Media and the ‘just pretend reporters’, for they know not what they do…
And one thing you can count on, those who so blindly believe in all things green, also believe in AGW. Isn’t it ironic that they think ‘we’ are evil, but they as well as conspire with evil men?
