Taxpayer money funding failures

The current fiscal catastrophe in Nevada is being further damaged by the governor's office, which has given carte blanche to alternative wind energy limited liability companies to move into Nevada and game the tax credit system and then to follow tax subsidies that are solely funded by taxpayer money.

The current fiscal catastrophe in Nevada is being further damaged by the governor's office, which has given carte blanche to alternative wind energy limited liability companies to move into Nevada and game the tax credit system and then to follow tax subsidies that are solely funded by taxpayer money.

After cuts and closures of education, public services and a host of necessary public programs, the governor continues to make deals with huge lobbying groups (AWEA) for wind energy farms knowing that wind energy is the least productive and most costly form of alternative energy production. Not one carbon credit or ton of CO2 will be saved by wind energy due to its sporadic production, as the wind doesn't always blow at the right speed or the right time for energy production. For every new wind farm, there must be a coal or natural gas-fired electricity generating plant.

The history of failures of these wind farms can be found at www.windaction.org . This is taxpayer money being given away to multi-millionaires and our own utility monopoly, NV Energy.

Not everything painted green is green. Geothermal and solar are dependable, cheap and plentiful. Nevadans need to demand them!
