The future is zero carbon, zero nuclear forms of energy, such as wind, solar, tides, geothermal steam, etc. Sadly, America is falling behind in terms of clean zero carbon, zero nuclear renewable energy manufacturers in both wind, solar, geothermal and more, as other countries pull ahead and dominate the market.

The figures and statistics in this article document and provide evidence that the fossil fuel and nuclear monopolies are strangling the US as far as a viable future, and burying it underneath a toxic pile of radioactive waste, plus toxic pollutants emitted by fossil fuel sources.

President Trump does not even believe in global warming, and hates all forms of renewable energy. His support is pushing coal, nuclear and other forms of toxic, dirty, radioactive, obsolete and planet killing forms of energy. By dragging America back into the coal age, he is giving market share in a global marketplace to other countries, and putting American into a tailspin as far as a clean, green, future that will work for 7 future generations of our children.

By canceling the international agreements on Co2 emissions, Trump is also condemning millions more climate change refugees to suffering in future generations.

America is becoming a not only a third world type of country, it is going backwards in terms of manufacturing renewable energy plants and installing them.

Fossil fuel and nuclear monopolistic corporations grab 90 percent of the subsidies and entitlements that could accelerate the US into a truly green future, while at the same time, these two monopolies are also working hard along with Trump, to block any renewable energy future by passing anti renewable energy laws in all states.

Meanwhile, other nations around the world are gleefully stepping into the void created by Trump, and grabbing market share, plus technological advances, such as largest wind turbines, tallest, most productive, etc. 



8 MW turbines. That’s a big machine, but not nearly the upper limit. Offshore power coming of age is a real game changer. Big implications for more traditional power sources.

They are, of course, not American, we’ve given away that leadership. Thanks climate deniers!

Guardian: The planet’s biggest and most powerful wind turbines have begun generating electricity off the Liverpool coast, cementing Britain’s reputation as a world leader in the technology.

Danish company Dong Energy has just finished installing 32 turbines in Liverpool Bay that are taller than the Gherkin skyscraper, with blades longer than nine London buses. Dong Energy, the windfarm’s developer, believes these machines herald the future for offshore wind power: bigger, better and, most importantly, cheaper.

Each of the 195m-tall turbines in the Burbo Bank extension has more than twice the power capacity of those in the neighbouring Burbo Bank windfarm completed a decade ago. “That…

Burbo Bank Extension – leading the way in innovation

Wikipedia; "Largest capacity conventional drive 
The Vestas V164 has a rated capacity of 8 MW,[76] has an overall height of 220 m (722 ft), a diameter of 164 m (538 ft), is for offshore use, and is the world's largest-capacity wind turbine since its introduction in 2014. The conventional drive train consist of a main gearbox and a medium speed PM generator. Prototype installed in 2014 at the National Test Center Denmark nearby Østerild. Series production starts end of 2015.

Largest capacity direct drive
The Enercon E-126 with 7.58 MW and 127 m rotor diameter is the largest direct drive turbine. It's only for onshore use. The turbine has parted rotor blades with 2 sections for transport. In July 2016, Siemens upgraded its 7 MW to 8 MW.[77]

Largest vertical-axis
Le Nordais wind farm in Cap-Chat, Quebec has a vertical axis wind turbine (VAWT) named Éole, which is the world's largest at 110 m.[78] It has a nameplate capacity of 3.8 MW.[79]

Largest 1-bladed turbine
Riva Calzoni M33 was a single-bladed wind turbine with 350 kW, designed and built In Bologna in 1993.

Largest 2-bladed turbine
The biggest 2-bladed turbine is built by Mingyang Wind Power in 2013. It is a SCD6.5MW offshore downwind turbine, designed by aerodyn Energiesysteme.[80][81][82]

Largest swept area
The turbine with the largest swept area is the Samsung S7.0–171, with a diameter of 171 m, giving a total sweep of 22966 m2.

A Nordex 3.3 MW was installed in July 2016. It has a total height of 230m, and a hub height of 164m on 100m concrete tower bottom with steel tubes on top (hybrid tower).[83]Vestas V164 was the tallest wind turbine, standing in Østerild, Denmark, 220 meters tall, constructed in 2014. It has a steel tube tower.

Highest tower
Fuhrländer installed a 2.5MW turbine on a 160m lattice tower in 2003 (see Fuhrländer Wind Turbine Laasow and Nowy Tomyśl Wind Turbines).

Most rotors
Lagerwey has build Four-in-One, a multi rotor wind turbine with one tower and four rotors near Maasvlakte. In April 2016, Vestas installed a 900 kW quadrotor test wind turbine at Risø, made from 4 recycled 225 kW V29 turbines.[84][85][86]

Most productive
Four turbines at Rønland Offshore Wind Farm in Denmark share the record for the most productive wind turbines, with each having generated 63.2 GWh by June 2010.[87]

Since 2013 the world's highest-situated wind turbine was made and installed by WindAid and is located at the base of the Pastoruri Glacier in Peru at 4,877 meters (16,001 ft) above sea level.[88] The site uses the WindAid 2.5 kW wind generator to supply power to a small rural community of micro entrepreneurs who cater to the tourists who come to the Pastoruri glacier.[89]

Largest floating wind turbine
The world's largest—and also the first operational deep-water large-capacity—floating wind turbine is the 2.3 MW Hywind currently operating 10 kilometers (6.2 mi) offshore in 220-meter-deep water, southwest of Karmøy, Norway. The turbine began operating in September 2009 and utilizes a Siemens 2.3 MW turbine.[90][91]


Watch video of the wind turbines manufactured by the 10 biggest wind power companies in the world.


1. Vestas

Vestas is the world’s only global energy company dedicated entirely to wind power and it definitely shows. With more than 60 GW installed worldwide, Vestas is the biggest name in the wind industry. Vestas also experience on its side, as it’s been around since 1898. Committed to sustainability and a healthier planet, Vestas doesn’t look like it’s giving up its top spot anytime soon.

2. Goldwind


3. Enercon

4. Siemens


5. Sulzon Group


Notice that the US is not even in the top five. Talk about making America great again; it is just an excuse for Trump to back toxic, polluting, radioactive, obsolete dying industries, and every American will pay a huge price in terms of health, energy savings, and devastation of the environment, which may even mean a global life extinction event, due to global warming.

In the following video, watch the the Enercon E-126 in operation. It is the first wind turbine with 6 MW rated power, rotor diameter: 126m (413ft), hub height: 135m(450ft). (It can generate up to 7 MW)

Two of these giant wind power units have been built for testing at an onshore location, Rysumer Nacken, near Emden, in the northwest of Germany.


Severe wind turbine accidents have had relatively low impacts on the communities where the accidents occurred, compared with the widespread and long lasting effects of accidents at nuclear and hydroelectric power plants.


Under Trump's 'leadership', America seems to be going backwards in terms of a zero carbon, zero nuclear energy future.

The rest of the world is moving ahead. Here are a few of the massive clean energy projects happening globally, despite Trump hating this form of energy production. 



¶ Sri Lanka is betting big on its abundant wind and solar electricity resources through competitive bidding for projects, a top government official in the power ministry said. A total of 700 MW of projects include a 100-MW floating solar power project on a reservoir, 60 MW of distributed wind power, 100 MW of wind power. []

¶ Transparency Market Research has released a report which shows that global offshore wind turbine market revenue is projected to reach $58.7 billion by 2025, at a compound annual growth rate of 7.7% between 2017 and 2015. In 2016, the revenue was $29.4 billion. The market is currently dominated by Europe. [Energy Digital]

A joint venture between Canadian company Northland Power and Singapore’s Yushan Energy is planning to build two offshore wind farms totaling 1.2GW in the Changhua Sea off Taiwan.

The rest of the world looks at American government and cannot believe how ignorant and stupid it is acting. But the ignorance and stupidity of Americans will not stop the rest of the world from moving ahead and accelerating into the energy revolution that has begun already.
