Congress should end subsidies for wind power

WASHINGTON — "The thing about money is that when you have it you don't need it and when you need it you don't have it," my grandfather used to tell me. He could have said the same thing about wind power. It's most abundant when demand for energy is lowest and least abundant when demand is highest. No amount of subsidy, no amount of federal or state regulation can change this simple fact.
Because of this, wind power can never live up to its advocates' promises.
They would have us believe that subsidizing wind energy can improve U.S. energy security. But since wind turbines can't be strapped to the top of your car, it isn't clear how. [Deseret]
