Another of President Barack Obama's big lies in his plan to destroy the coal industry involves "alternative energy." It is an unmixed blessing, the president assures us.
Tell that to the people behind 32 lawsuits against the company that owns a new "wind farm" near Keyser, W.Va. Many of them note noise and vibrations from the facility's giant wind turbines have ruined the quality of life and hurt property values of people living miles away from the "farm."
Add that to complaints about birds killed, possibly in the millions, by wind energy facilities.
And there is the fact that wind farms and solar energy facilities rely on massive government subsidies.
We've been lied to again. That is no shock. What is surprising is that Congress won't do anything about it.
