“Forgotten by many proponents is the justification … in the first place:   to reduce CO2 emissions…. [Yet] … many utilities with large amounts of wind generation steadfastly
 refuse to release operating data for analysis.  I suspect to do so would mean the release
of empirical data to build the opposition’s case for insignificant CO2 reduction and poor
operating economics.  I was unable to find one study of existing wind energy installations
that found the CO2 reductions predicted by AWEA.”
