Texas is the national leader in wind energy - with more installed capacity, more wind turbines and more jobs than any other state. The wind energy industry in Texas has created thousands of jobs and provided billions of dollars in economic benefits. It sure is not showing up in our electric bills. Where it did show up was the polar vortex, expected to hit north Texas hard, but the many wind farms protected us from that storm. Sure wish it could protect us all from tornadoes. Interesting article, Nancy.

Perhaps we shall yet live and not die.

I am seeing certain changes directed toward survival.

There are those who have the power and the money to make changes that may save our planet.

We must provide encouragement and support. As we are doing! When they're bad, slap their hands. When they're good give them candy. The power/money people are only spoiled children who are practiced at throwing tantrums to embarrass us in front of the whole world.

They are also human. They may have space ships hidden away somewhere in which they hope to escape. They may be building underground cities where they never get a sunburn. But how long will they want to live underground. They want to invade the other planets, perhaps even the galaxy. Sorry, they're a little late. The Intergalactic Galaxy is already formed and they're keeping an eye on us.

So Many Thanks for this share Nancy! I always believe that where there is life, there IS HOPE!!! This is how I was brought up to believe & just maybe--- things CAN change & the right changes will be put into motion. If we are to survive--- SAFE, CLEAN, GREEN, ALTERNATIVES, must take a front seat now~~~

CA is a leader in the wind industry. However, there are many, many people against it. I find this sad but keep hoping Green wins

I knew I would not be happy with NJ's rating.

I absolutely and totally believe in clean energy......but, the wind companies are becoming the next "big oil." Sacrificing the environment and species including the endangered......birds including bald eagles, bats, etc. are being killed by the turbines and moving tubines to their site is decimating the environment. Big Wind cannot become just another profit-seeking corp They need to get on the right track and do it right. Thanks Nancy for sharing.
