Stop the Extension of the PTC


The Production Tax Credit (PTC) is an enormous subsidy for inefficient renewable energy.  It is really about government interfering in the energy markets.  Windmills cannot compete in the marketplace on their own, they must have government funding and be forced to be given preference.

One of the worst lobbying groups is the America Wind Energy Association (AWEA).  They know that they need huge tax benefits for the wind farms to stay in business and they will do anything to keep the government money flowing.  They are dishonest in their ads about jobs as cited by FactCheck.

If you want to know more about wind power, please see the following that was put together by John Droz, jr.  Where I am on the science of global warming he covers the science of wind farm propaganda.  The wind farm thing is foolish and unsupportable in the long run.  It needs to end.

Please contact your senator today to put and end to the government subsidy of wind energy.

  1. Experiments have proved that oil IS renewable. Iron can be dissolved into calcium carbonate and it makes oil. Oil is NOT a “fossil fuel” because it is constantly being created at about 100 kilometers down. It comes close to the surface via fault lines. Oil is discovered at 30,000 feet, far below the 18,000 feet where organic matter is no longer found. Wells pumped dry have been later replenished. Volume of oil pumped thus far not accountable from organic material alone according to present models. Methane has been produced under the conditions that exist in the Earth’s upper mantle. (PhysicsWeb; Sept. 14, 2004). Russia has been going by the theory and in 1970 the Russians started drilling Kola SG-3, an exploration well which finally reached a staggering world record depth of 40,230 feet. Since then, Russian oil majors including Yukos have quietly drilled more than 310 successful super-deep oil wells, and put them into production. Last Year Russia overtook Saudi Arabia as the world’s biggest single oil producer, and is now set to completely dominate global oil production and sales for the next century.
