AFP Plans "Global Wind Day" Counter-Protests - Friday, June 15

June 11, 2012

Would you believe that this Friday is “Global Wind Day”?

You heard that right! Friday is “Global Wind Day” and environmental extremists throughout New Jersey will be celebrating by flying kites at beaches along the Jersey Shore and calling for more and more of our tax dollars to be used to subsidize their crazy offshore wind pipe dreams!

But AFP will be there to combat their global wind hot air.

AFP will be going toe to toe with the environmental extremists to combat their radical agenda and tell the truth about the costs of offshore wind!

You’ll remember that right here in New Jersey; the State has already authorized a $100 MILLION taxpayer subsidy to install windmills off our coast. This scheme would be a disaster for the state, raising rates and killing jobs!

The Beacon Hill Institute’s economic analysis of this boondoggle showed it could cost New Jersey as much as $4.137 BILLION, drive electricity rates up 4.2% in 2017, and result in as many as 4,440 lost jobs!

“The Most Expensive Offshore Wind Power In The World”

More recently, outside consultants for the State said that a proposal to complete this boondoggle would result in “The Most Expensive Offshore Wind Power In The World”. If implemented, the plan would cost New Jersey:

  • A staggering $946.1 million in economic activity over 20 years;
  • The loss of almost 30,000 jobs; and
  • Would drive up electricity rates by $286 million!

It’s time to fight back against the radical environmentalists’ offshore wind agenda!
