GE: We Bring Wind Turbines to Life

by Paul Chesser, Heartland Institute Correspondent on June 16, 2009

Newsbusters noticed that INN (the Immelt News Network, more commonly known as NBC) — corporate child of General Electric, the big maker of and subsidy sucker for its wind turbines — downplayed the recent cool weather. NB’s Jeff Poor reports:

According to NBC chief environmental affairs correspondent Anne Thompson, the phenomena are caused by the a jet stream dropping deeper into the United States than is usual for this time of year.

“Though summer doesn’t officially start for another week, the run up has been most unseasonable,” Thompson said.

But Anne assured viewers, and anchor Brian Williams, that those wind turbines are still needed! More from Poor:

“This less-than-beach-like weather may have you wondering about global warming,” Thompson said. “This cold spell is a snapshot, just a couple of weeks. Global warming is something that happens over decades and centuries. So hang in there, summer and its warmth is on the horizon.”

That news of warm weather and theory of global warming was reassuring for Williams. “Glad to hear that. I was beginning to worry,” he said.

Lest Immelt put heat on the news department like a solar panel on a desert turtle!
