  2. Barry:

    As a physicist (energy expert) and longtime environmental advocate, I applaud your efforts to educate the public about energy and environmental issues!

    After talking to a LOT of people about renewables (like wind power — the illegitimate offspring of AGW), my conclusion is that almost everyone has only a superficial understanding of this very technical matter. Additionally, the public and political perception of wind energy is being driven by special interest lobbyists, and by “environmentalists” who are well-intentioned but misguided.

    My belief is that such complex technical matters should be based on science, rather than on inputs from those who stand to economically or politically profit.

    The simple webpage where I have collected some pertinent documents is at “WindPowerFacts.Info”.

    I have put on several community presentations about our energy future, with a focus on the question of whether we want our energy policies to be determined by lobbyists or by qualified independent scientists. This is now online at “Electrical Energy: Sound Scientific Solutions” EnergyPresentation.Info. (I think you’ll like it enough to consider it an addition for the top 10, or 12.)

    Let me know any questions you have on my presentation, or any of my articles.

    If you like, I will put you on my email list for my informal energy newsletter. (These emailings are periodic, and have been typically once a month or so. There are currently some 3000 readers.)
