...and before you start saying it can't happen here it already has...my buddy up North told me they just idled their entire wind farm...

Happy now?

I live in the far west burbs of Chicago, probably 45 minutes from a gigantic wind farm off of i-39. I completely get it and agree it's stupid, but i was about to send it off to some green cucks and happened to notice the date. It may even be happening now, it's pretty fucking cold ATM, but would've been laughed at sending that pic.

That was my point, albeit quite poorly made originally.

Yea...It was the only graphic I had at the moment so I went with it. Guess I got excited after the text and the call...and I had seen something earlier about it but couldn't find the link... My buddy told me they may be shut down awhile 'cause the choppers they used to de-ice are grounded...for ice...Kek...

EDIT: Send the the link I sent you...it's current and proves the point succinctly. Germany has three times the energy costs because of their embrace of 'Renewables' so the Russkies are making a killing off of NG coming down their pipes...

The thing about this coldass weather is that usually the wind is extremely significant, so it's even worse that they're not working because they SHOULD be producing quite a bit (compared to wind's average, anyway).

Green life.
