    Tables are turning . . . public is getting educated. The awakening has begun.

    Now keep fighting to compensate the sick, exploited, poor and the weary.

    I read the comments. Even on the WSJ, which did a strongly worded editorial against ethanol and wind subsidies back in December, there were comments in favor of wind subsidies. Here is an excerpt: “Talk about throwing good money after bad. Despite more than $30 billion in subsidies for ‘clean energy’ in the 2009 stimulus bill, Big Wind still can’t make it in the marketplace.”

    Melodie from Ontario, CANADA, is correct. The public continues to need to be educated about Big Wind. The wind doesn’t blow all the time. It is unreliable, impractical and cannot stand on its own without subsidies. Wake up people! Keep spreading the word.
