It takes enormous amounts of taxpayer cash to make
wind energy seem affordable.
. Two years ago (2014), Berkshire’s CEO, Warren Buffett, explained why his companies are in the wind business. “We get a tax credit if we build a lot of wind farms. That’s the only reason to build them,” he said. “They don’t make sense without the tax credit.” From article in National Review
NO WIND FARM MONTGOMERY COUNTY
We are Hoosiers united against wind energy. Here you will find groups from several Indiana counties and even other states sharing information about the dangers of industrial wind turbine development.
No Wind Farm Montgomery County (NWFMC) responds to the Apex/Roaming Bison pro-wind ad with one of our own.
This ad was printed in our 2 local papers in Crawfordsville, IN (Journal Review and The Paper) on May 23, 2019. Funds to print this ad were paid for by donations from our community supporting the efforts of NWFMC to keep industrial wind turbines out of Montgomery County.

#20 – The claim that wind energy is “green” or “environmentally friendly” is laugh-out-loud hilarious – except for the fact that the reality is not funny at all. Consider just one part of a turbine, the generator, which uses considerable rare earth elements (2000± pounds per MW).
The mining and processing of these metals has horrific environmental consequences that are unacknowledged and ignored by the wind industry and its environmental surrogates. For instance, just the rare earths of a typical 100 MW wind project would generate approximately:
