Surprise Surprise, Look Who’s for Alternative Energy

August 26th, 2008 by mopns · No Comments

Congressman Russ Carnahan (most esteemed member of the lucky sperm club) recently sent this letter to a constituent touting his support for alternative energy. Kind of makes sense when your brother is in the “wind farming” business doesn’t it?

Tom Carnahan
Founder, Wind Capital Group

Tom Carnahan is the founder and president of Wind Capital Group. In 2005 he drew upon his background in law, politics, development, and farm management when he partnered with Missouri farmers and rural electric cooperatives to develop the state’s first wind farm.

Since then, Wind Capital Group has become one of the fastest growing wind developers in the country. Mr. Carnahan is actively involved in growing not just his own company, but the wind industry as a whole.

It’s also ironic that Congressman Carnahan is using the same phrases that”wind farming” entrepreneur T. Boone Pickens uses in his multi-million dollar ad campaign advocating wind and natural gas development. From the Congressman’s letter:

“In order to address this energy crisis, we need to fundamentally change the way America powers itself. While the United States has almost 3 percent of the world’s oil reserves, we use 24 percent of the world’s oil…..Even self-described oilman, T. Boone Pickens said, “This is one emergency we can’t drill our way out of.”

Just a coincidence, we know.
