Energy, to be useful to humans, must be reliable, affordable and plentiful. These three requirements are not addressed in this article.
The purpose of energy is to provide the means to promote a human flourishing society and to create the wealth to adapt to changes in weather and climate. This article claims wind energy will `fight’ climate change. What measurable changes in climate should we expect? What will be the cost of the wind energy?
- Offshore wind produces unreliable energy about 45% of the time. It will, on the average supply power to 900,000 homes, not two (2) million though some days it will power two million and others none.
- The un-quantified number of jobs created will be subsidized by ratepayers. This means the jobs are actually a drain on industrial growth, not creating growth.
Per Alex Epstein
Creating jobs” is only a good thing if those jobs are productive jobs. If the government pays people to produce inferior products and services or pays people to produce inefficiently, that is “welfare work” that hurts American consumers and American competitiveness.
