    Iowa Republican Senator Grassley Defies Trump On Wind

    Sen. Chuck Grassley: Trump can get rid of wind energy ‘over my dead body’

    Michael Walsh, August 30, 2016 (Yahoo News)

    “Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, the author of the original wind energy tax credit in 1992, said a hypothetical President Trump wouldn’t be able to get rid of wind power in the U.S. as long as he’s alive. The GOP nominee has railed for years [against wind but throughout] President Barack Obama’s tenure in the Oval Office, electricity production from wind power in the U.S. has tripled...[to] 75 gigawatts, which is enough to power 20 million American homes with electricity…According to Grassley, current members of his own party are mistaken when they cite small-government principles to argue that the U.S. should not subsidize wind energy. Those Republicans…should let the industry grow to maturity before phasing the incentive out, he said…Obama has presented himself as a clean-energy president…Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton is similarly bullish on renewable energy. But her competition, Republican candidate Trump, is adamantly anti-wind energy and has said climate change is a hoax concocted by the Chinese to hurt American manufacturing…Among the Republicans supporting wind energy are Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, Sen. Rob Portman of Ohio and Sen. Orrin Hatch of Utah…Three years ago, Trump predicted that no one would be building wind turbines by 2016…[Wind now generates 5 percent of the country’s electricity and at its current rate of growth is] likely to reach 10 percent by 2020…” click here for more
