Donald Trump spoke to a group of young supporters this weekend about WIND ENERGY. These were among his words of wisdom:
We’ll have an economy based on wind. I never understood wind. You know, I know windmills very much. I’ve studied it better than anybody. I know it’s very expensive. They’re made in China and Germany mostly — very few made here, almost none. But they’re manufactured tremendous — if you’re into this — tremendous fumes. Gases are spewing into the atmosphere. You know we have a world, right? So the world is tiny compared to the universe. So tremendous, tremendous amount of fumes and everything. You talk about the carbon footprint — fumes are spewing into the air. Right? Spewing. Whether it’s in China, Germany, it’s going into the air. It’s our air, their air, everything — right? So they make these things and then they put them up.
That's just the most quoted segment. I don't want to laugh or make fun because this is really serious stuff, as I hope we all are at least beginning to realize. I found this in Philip Bump's column today in the Washington Post. You can and should read it here.
