Wind energy? FAIL. The only wind coming from Obama is a bunch of hot, Progressive air.

Romney spokesman Ryan Williams, in response to the president’s wind energy push, said,“Mitt Romney is a strong supporter of wind power and appreciates the industry’s extraordinary technological progress and its important contributions to America’s energy supply.

“Unfortunately, under President Obama’s approach, the industry has lost 10,000 jobs while growth in wind power nationally has slowed every single year of his term. Mitt Romney will instead set the industry on a course for success and growth by promoting policies that remove regulatory barriers, support free enterprise and market-based competition, and reward technological innovation,” he said in a written statement.

Disorganize you can say that again. Still spewing your malarkey with no collaborating substance. Wind Power HAS NOT been going down. In spite of the obstructionist oily, coaly toxic republicans to sabotage it at every step of the way with their No, No, No, leadership of the “Party First”, USA second. Romney did propose Green energy is true. That’s what is making the host of the Tea party suspicious of Romney’s allegiance. Since Obama has been at the controls Alternative energy has increased by 600%. His investment in the R&D of Green is now starting to pay off with a multi explosion in new innovating techniques that is already more efficient than what is out there now. From solar panels, batteries, wind turbines and so on and so on. LOL that new efficiency is the reason Solyndra bellied up. New systems on the market that old systems can no longer compete with.
Here is one example; Their biggest problem is trying to keep up with the new efficiencies of technology as they come out of the R&D. Obama invested on the program for Alternative energy more than fixating on one company.
A True Grassroots Victory in San Antonio
We're still celebrating last week's announcement by San Antonio Mayor Joaquin Castro that not only will the city shut down its 900 megawatt Deely coal-fired power plant by 2018, but San Antonio plans to replace the power with a combination of traditional sources like natural gas, renewable energy, including solar energy, and energy efficiency.

In fact, CPS Energy, the municipal utility, has already invested in a 14 MW solar PV plant that opened last year, and made a commitment to 20 percent renewable energy by 2020. Not only is this a victory for clean energy and community health, but it's also an example of some amazing long-term grassroots work by local residents.

"This was years in the making," said Russell Seal of the local Sierra Club Alamo Group. "The big thing here is not just shutting down the coal plant, but changing the dialogue from 'supplying energy as low-cost-as-the-only-factor' to a philosophy about providing competitively priced energy with environmental considerations. This is a huge shift in philosophy."
Seal said the work started several years ago when the city's utility, City Public Service (CPS), had planned on investing in a proposed nuclear power plant. After extensive activist involvement in opposing that plan, the news eventually broke that CPS officials at the time lied about the real costs of investing in a nuclear plant.

"San Antonio is stepping up to lead Texas and our nation into a clean energy future and proving that investing in innovative technology to protect our health and the environment is also a great way to create jobs. Committing to cleaner sources of power will mean cleaner air for the families in San Antonio and opportunities for San Antonio's workforce," said Jackson.

"By sending a strong signal of the local government's support for clean energy, San Antonio attracted innovative American businesses that will create jobs around technology that helps to keep the air clean."

That is certainly true - within days of the announcement, the city had received over 100 proposals from solar companies vying to produce new, clean energy for the city. By investing in renewable energy rather than coal or nuclear power, the city is creating jobs, saving lives, and positioning itself as a national leader in twenty-first century energy innovation
