Biden Is Gung Ho To Build Wind Warms Despite The Lack Of A Reliable Main Component


Energy experts slammed President Joe Biden’s plan to build wind farms, pointing out that wind power is costly, inefficient and indirectly produces greenhouse gas emissions.

“It is amazing that they’re touting wind at the very time when the EU is going through an energy crisis, in which they’re shutting down factories, fertilizer production, agricultural processing because their wind isn’t working,” Dan Kish, a senior fellow at the Institute for Energy Research said.

Europe has had extreme increases in oil, natural gas, and coal prices, due largely to a rapid shift to renewable energies over the past decade.
Energy experts criticized President Joe Biden’s plan to build wind farms, pointing out that wind power is costly, inefficient and indirectly produces greenhouse gas emissions despite experts' warnings of unreliability.

“Both wind and solar have Achilles heels in that they’re intermittent,” Dan Kish, a senior fellow at the Institute for Energy Research, said.

Interior Secretary Deb Haaland said Wednesday that the administration would back up to seven offshore wind farms across the country, which would have a total capacity of 30 gigawatts by 2030, sufficient energy for 10 million homes. It is one part of Biden’s promise to cut U.S. emissions by 50% by 2030 and have a 100% carbon-free electricity grid by 2035.

However, government data shows that offshore wind produces only 45% of its energy capacity due to its intermittent production capability.

“It is amazing that they’re touting wind at the very time when the EU is going through an energy crisis, in which they’re shutting down factories, fertilizer production, agricultural processing because their wind isn’t working,” Kish continued. “And it’s driven up the cost of energy to replace it.”

“That the Biden administration is out there touting it and we want to go in the same direction they’ve gone in, I don’t know, you can’t make this stuff up,” he said.

Lower than predicted wind gusts meant lower energy production which meant a swift shift back to fossil fuel. European utilities have even been going back to coal which is more carbon-intensive than either oil or natural gas.

“Often, you’re pairing clean energy from wind with dirty energy from natural gas in order to be able to allow the wind into the grid itself,” American Institute for Economic Research senior faculty Ryan Yonk said. “So we end up with strange outcomes where, as you add more wind, you have to add more fossil fuels in order to have a backup.”
