Okay, not today. This is about four years old, but I don’t remember reporting it at the time. It did appear in the Washington Independent, owned by the organization I worked for. This is from Rep. Joe Barton (R-Shell, Chevron) during a House Energy and Commerce Committee hearing.
Wind is God’s way of balancing heat. Wind is the way you shift heat from areas where it’s hotter to areas where it’s cooler. That’s what wind is. Wouldn’t it be ironic if in the interest of global warming we mandated massive switches to energy, which is a finite resource, which slows the winds down, which causes the temperature to go up? Now, I’m not saying that’s going to happen, Mr. Chairman, but that is definitely something on the massive scale. I mean, it does make some sense. You stop something, you can’t transfer that heat, and the heat goes up. It’s just something to think about.
Yeah, it is something to think about. And if you had the ability to think, you could do that.
