Why Wind Won't Work exposes the collosal waste of money and resources associated with this unsustainable alternative energy. Wind power turbines on average only produce 20% of their nameplate... More > rating. When they are not operating, they still consume electricity, which usually is not metered. Care to guess who is paying for this unmetered electricity? Wind power will not reduce CO2 emissions, or our dependence on foreign oil imports, and cannot replace fossil-fueled power plants to any noticeable degree. Wind turbines are not environmentally friendly. They are noisy, unsightly, kill bats and birds, interfere with radars, and have been shown to be responsible for a slew of health problems. The design, installation and operation of wind power facilities consume more than 3 times the energy they will ever produce. The biggest winners in wind power will be developers, land owners, banks, brokerage houses, and manufacturers. The big losers will be taxpayers and electric bill payers.< Less

More > satisfactory explanation. Ball lightning is part of that mystery but easily explained by Coleman's vortex fireball theory which hypothesizes the existence of aerial burners in the sky. The theory suggests vortices can combust a fuel within the confines of vortex breakdown of a vortex. This idea was published by the author in scientific sources and has been demonstrated experimentally at a University facility. This could be the definitive solution. Observations are cited from the literature that show that such a previously unrecognised scientific phenomenon does exist. This unified theory clarifies other puzzles such as the Tunguska "meteor" and gives a coherent explanation of ball lightning as a small fiery vortex.< Less
