Unless you count sailboats, wind power does not compete with oil as a fuel for transportation of goods and people.
Sure some oil gets used to generate electricity, but at $125 / bbl or $85 / bbl, that's just a crazy way to use oil and we'll probably stop.
By the way; save your vented venom and tell me why you did not critize the comment from the story that the wind farm had no chance in hell to replace one power plant. I stand behind the statement about the birds. They did not slow down the windmills at the site to save the birds. I am not big on bird saving when it comes to feasible energy sources, but wind power is not going to help us overall.
Well there is no vented venom in my post. Its quite obviously in yours though.
You said a wind farm has no chance to replace a power plant? That is EXACTLY what they do.
Modern windmills have a capacity of 2-3mw and the farms have from 50 to 500 windmills. 500mw is a power plant.
The bird issue? Its dead unlike the birds.
Here is just one link. Google it there are many articles explain its a small or non issue.
And you believe everything you read, particularly Forbes? Out here in the West, the most vociferous, current opposition to wind power relates to the visual impact not the noise or bird factor, both of which are inconsequential. Have you ever seen one of the turbine blades? The pack them down the I-5 corridor on very, very long-bed semis - generally not much more than one blade per truck. They are huge! If you happen to be standing close to a turbine, most of which rotate at a very slow speed, there is hardly any noise at all.
As you can see "coal-to-liquids" considered as an alternative energy fuel by the US Department of Energy.
Besides, "my" company do not produce CTL but CWM and I didn't focus to it.
Do you want to speak further about SCLX.OB, its growth and its fundamentals? I think this is not the right board to do that, so you are welcomed to SCLX board anytime you want to share your arguments.
I live in the west (in a state with substantial wind power generating facilities). Wind power is certainly a viable alternative but the problem we are facing here is that the projected generation from proposed and "in construction" turbines will outstrip our capacity to carry and transport it. In other words, what good is the resource if there is no means of marketing it or, more precisely, getting it to the market?
