On Denmark p.114 The September 2009 study by CEPOS said that Denmark’s wind industry “saves neither fossil fuel consumption nor carbon dioxide emissions.” The final page of the report even offers a warning for the United States: “The Danish experience also suggests that a strong US wind expansion would not benefit the overall economy. It would entail substantial costs to the consumer and industry, and only to a lesser degree benefit a small part of the economy, namely wind turbine owners, wind shareholder and those employed in the sector.”
Main Points Wind power is intermittent and must be supplemented by conventional means CO2 emissions barely changed No oil imports due to offshore drilling Incredibly expensive electricity
