Top Wind Turbines Quotes

Wind Turbines Quotes By Tim Rice

I recently declined to support a Conservative function because I'm so incensed about these wind turbines. Like all so-called climate-change doubters, I am very pro the environment, but I strongly believe that it is something that can only be cured locally. Some insane overall scheme isn't going to cure all the problems. — Tim Rice

Wind Turbines Quotes By Nigel Lawson

Hopelessly uneconomic on any substantial scale, since it requires a conventional power back-up for when the wind stops blowing, forests of wind turbines are rightly regarded in most countries as an environmental monstrosity. — Nigel Lawson

Wind Turbines Quotes By Mike Bond

These steel monstrosities screamed night and day, blotted out the starlit skies and Northern Lights with flashing red strobes, slaughtered thousands of bats and entire flocks of birds banished tourism and wildlife, made people sick and drove them from their now-valueless homes. — Mike Bond

Wind Turbines Quotes By Howie Carr

I used to think Cape Wind was a great idea. That was when Ted Kennedy was alive and railing about how he might spill his Chivas if he had to keep maneuvering the Mya around all those noisy seagull-murdering wind turbines. Anything Ted Kennedy was against, I was for. — Howie Carr

Wind Turbines Quotes By Mark Z. Jacobson

You can power the entire U.S. vehicle fleet with 73,000 to 145,000 five-megawatt wind turbines. That would take between one and three square kilometers of footprint on the ground. — Mark Z. Jacobson

Wind Turbines Quotes By Van Jones

We seem to forget that everything that is good for the environment is a job. Solar panels don't put themselves up. Wind turbines don't manufacture themselves. Houses don't retrofit themselves and put in their own new boilers and furnaces and better-fitting windows and doors. Advanced biofuel crops don't plant themselves. Community gardens don't tend themselves. Farmers' markets don't run themselves. Every single thing that is good for the environment is actually a job, a contract, or an entrepreneurial opportunity. — Van Jones

Wind Turbines Quotes By Steven Magee

We are in the process of finding out what filling billions of acres with huge wind turbines does to the global environment. — Steven Magee

Wind Turbines Quotes By Frances Beinecke

I have visited people whose health has been endangered by tar sands oil. I have watched neighbors struggle to recover from Superstorm Sandy. I have seen solar panels and wind turbines become an increasingly familiar part of the landscape. — Frances Beinecke

Wind Turbines Quotes By Simon Jenkins

The current anger at the march of turbines and pylons across the hills of Britain is not from nimbys. Government money has lubricated most backyard owners to support wind power. It comes from those who appreciate the beauty of the countryside and who question the industrial spoliation of miles of open landscape for a pitiful net gain to climate change. — Simon Jenkins

Wind Turbines Quotes By Ezra Levant

The famous statue of Christ the Redeemer that overlooks Rio de Janeiro is only 130 feet tall. McGuinty's eco-idols [Wind Turbines] will be three times that height, but will serve the same imposing purpose. — Ezra Levant

Wind Turbines Quotes By Chellie Pingree

I think we've found a better solution on North Haven and Vinalhaven: Instead of paying increasing expensive electric bills every month, with the money going out of our community, out of state, and even out of the country, the wind turbines bring the promise of decades of steady rates with the money staying right here. — Chellie Pingree

Wind Turbines Quotes By James Lovelock

I wouldn't be against them (large wind turbines) if they actually worked. — James Lovelock

Wind Turbines Quotes By Joseph J. Romm

Replacing half of the U.S. ground-transport fuels with hydrogen from wind power by 2050, for example, might require 1,400 gigawatts of advanced wind turbines or more ... replacing those fuels with electricity might require less than 400 GW. — Joseph J. Romm

Wind Turbines Quotes By David J. C. MacKay

We must not let ourselves be swept off our feet in horror at the danger of nuclear power. Nuclear power is not infinitely dangerous. It's just dangerous, much as coal mines, petrol repositories, fossil-fuel burning and wind turbines are dangerous. — David J. C. MacKay

Wind Turbines Quotes By Annabel Joseph

No, you have to finish school. The wind turbines need you. There's possibly an apocalypse on the way." I felt like an apocalypse was happening right now, a personal one. I felt as if I'd waited to start living my life until she came. "We'll work things out," I said. "The important thing is that we need to be together." Most of my clients owned at least one masterpiece they knew they could never part with. I had apparently acquired mine. — Annabel Joseph

Wind Turbines Quotes By Joe Hockey

I find those wind turbines around Lake George to be utterly offensive. I think they're just a blight on the landscape. — Joe Hockey

Wind Turbines Quotes By Lamar Alexander

To power the country by building 186,000 fifty-story wind turbines - and running 19,000 miles of new transmission lines - just seems impractical and preposterous compared to the idea of building a hundred new nuclear facilities primarily on the sites we already have. — Lamar Alexander

Wind Turbines Quotes By Roger Helmer

Even if you accept the theory of man-made climate change, wind turbines are a rotten way to reduce CO2 emissions, or to improve energy security. — Roger Helmer

Wind Turbines Quotes By Tim Yeo

Onshore wind turbines are visually a very considerable intrusion on any landscape. — Tim Yeo

Wind Turbines Quotes By Ban Ki-moon

We need to bring sustainable energy to every corner of the globe with technologies like solar energy mini-grids, solar powered lights, and wind turbines. — Ban Ki-moon

Wind Turbines Quotes By Chuck Palahniuk

Life insurance pays off triple if you die on a business trip. I prayed for wind shear effect. I prayed for pelicans sucked into the turbines and loose bolts and ice on the wings. On takeoff, as the plane pushed down the runway and the flaps tilted up, with our seats in their full upright position and our tray tables stowed and all personal carry-on baggage in the overhead compartment, as the end of the runway ran up to meet us with our smoking materials extinguished, I prayed for a crash. — Chuck Palahniuk

Wind Turbines Quotes By Paul Kingsnorth

The mountains and moors, the wild uplands, are to be staked out like vampires in the sun, their chests pierced with rows of five-hundred-foot wind turbines and associated access roads, masts, pylons, and wires. — Paul Kingsnorth

Wind Turbines Quotes By Saul Griffith

Conventional turbines only work up to 200 feet, but capturing a small fraction of the global wind energy at higher altitudes could be sufficient to supply the current energy needs of the globe. — Saul Griffith

Wind Turbines Quotes By Ozzie Zehner

Wind is renewable. Turbines are not. — Ozzie Zehner
