Colorado’s wind energy: neither free nor clean
The American Tradition Institute, where our own Amy Oliver Cooke is a media and investigative fellow, is suing the state of Colorado for its renewable energy mandate. (Check out Executive Director Paul Chesser’s interview on the Amy Oliver Show) Colorado voters approved a 10 percent renewable energy mandate in 2004. Since then the state legislature has increased the mandate two times to 30 percent by 2020.
Why a lawsuit? This first in a three-part series video explains the problems with wind energy in particular. Wind is “neither free nor clean.” Rather than embrace gigantic “cuisinarts in the sky,” real environments, such as those at ATI, eschew them.
