    New Michael Moore-backed doc tackles alternative energy

    I've never been a fan of Moore, his "Bowling for Columbine" was off-the-charts offensive, but it's going to take something like this to wake up the greenies who think renewable energy is the answer.

    "It turned out the wakeup call was about our own side," Gibbs said in a phone interview. "It was kind of crushing to discover that the things I believed in weren't real, first of all, and then to discover not only are the solar panels and wind turbines not going to save us ... but (also) that there is this whole dark side of the corporate money ... It dawned on me that these technologies were just another profit centre."

    Fact is, alternative energy really isn't all it's cracked up to be, but this has been known for 40 years. People preaching it live a lie. Wind turbines have been shown to have a detrimental impact on people and animals that live in proximity to them.

    Politics is the art of looking for trouble, finding it everywhere, diagnosing it incorrectly and applying the wrong remedies.

    This is true. The tax credits launched a barrage of big wind corporations, many of which are foreign-owned, and they found a gullible liberal base to support them.

    It's beginning to turn around now as those negative effects are discovered.

    But, it's a racket. Wind companies include gag clauses in the leases that prevent leaseholders from speaking out against the company when they experience negative effects.

    To be sure -- he's an ass. But, they say even a blind squirrel finds an acorn now and again. This is Moore's acorn.

    I have wondered about that. There must by now be a lot of research on that topic for public review?

    I believe that Solar Power will not only become the primary source of energy, but also will enable Humankind to increase Energy Production by the factor of 40-50. It will usher a new Industrial Revolution, and a Post-Scarcity World.
