Did windmills cause the 4.1 magnitude earthquake that hit Delaware this Thursday, November 30, 2017? Dagum, I hope so. I want all those windmills torn down.
The Delaware Online characterized the seismic event as unusual in an article entitled ‘This is wild,’ USGS says of Dover 4.1 earthquake:
A geophysicist, Cheng Shengzao, with the USGS, said the East Coast quake was surprising.
“This is wild. It’s not often that this happens,” Shengzao said.
A 3.3 magnitude earthquake hit just east of Dover in 1879, according to the Delaware Geological Survey.
Gee, earthquakes don’t happen often in Delaware. Can we blame fracking? No. Due to a slump in oil price, the Marcellus Shale Gas Formation has seen a steep decline in fracking activity. But the windmill construction boom continues unabated. Read more

Liberals want to blame the oil and gas industry for the Oklahoma earthquake swarm. But in doing so they expose their own ignorance. Again.
First they threw around the word fracking. It was an easy accusation to make. Fracking caused the Oklahoma earthquakes. The word fracking just sounds so nasty. Fracking. It’s like a swear word almost. You could substitute it for the f-word at Bible camp.
And anyone with a cursory knowledge of drilling for oil would know that fracking is short for hydraulic fracturing. It’s where they pump water and sand down a hole to break open rocks underground to extract oil.
So it’s an easy conclusion for the ignorant to jump to. Of course hydraulically fracturing rocks underground causes earthquakes!
The problem is it doesn’t. Read more
Why do windmills cause earthquakes but not skyscrapers? A lot of people asked that question when I first postulated the sail push theory of windmill-caused earthquakes. Read more
Windmills cause earthquakes. That’s the bold statement I made in a recent bombshell article that made the rounds and generated a lot of buzz.
Lots of people took to the comments to pish-posh the idea that windmills could generate enough force to move the earth’s crust. They said I should go back to school and learn science so I’d join them in blaming fracking.
Hold on there! Why am I stupid for thinking something man-made such as windmills cause earthquakes but you’re a genius for concluding that the made-made act of fracking does the same?
Look, I can make a powerful argument about how windmills cause earthquakes. I can back it up with charts, maps, and data. What I don’t have is a huge government grant to fund my research. But with help from feedingjimmy.com readers, we can create a barrage of sensationalistic and misleading headlines on social media to vilify the windmill industry.
But is it true? Do windmills actually cause earthquakes?
It doesn’t matter. I made the accusation. Now it’s up to them to disprove it. And until they do, we need to shut down all windmill construction. That’s the way it works, guys.
Anyways, here’s my plausible windmill-earthqake theory. Read more

Who do atheists thank on Thanksgiving? Someone asked me that and actually I kinda answered that in my post, Okay, you’re thankful, but to whom?
Without God, Thanksgiving is an absurd holiday. Read more
George Washington’s Thanksgiving Proclamation of 1789 (via mountvernon.org)
Happy Thanksgiving, guys. I hope you’re having a good time with your friends and family. Perhaps you’re rattling off all the things you’re thankful for. That’s what this holiday is all about, right? To be thankful. And thankfully, we don’t need to think too hard to come up with a cornucopia of wonderful things that we Americans enjoy.
I just got one question. To whom are you thankful?
You grammar police are thankful I phrased this question correctly. I said “to whom are you thankful?” rather than “who are you thankful to?” Well, with that, I’m thankful I don’t have the grammar police harping on me right now.
So let’s continue using correct grammar, shall we? Read more
Hillary Clinton, visibly angry that Donald Trump prevents free car seats.
Guys, I’m going to make a bold prediction right here. I predict car seats will become a topic of debate among Democrats vying for the presidential nomination.
Right now a lot of you are chortling. “Pfft! Car seats?!”
Yea, car seats. You know, like for babies. Well, it used to just be for babies. But now infants, toddlers, adolescents, preteens, and even short teenagers need to sit in booster seats while riding in the car. Read more
Does fracking cause earthquakes? No. Windmills do.
Liberals look to the reports of increased earthquake activity and add it to their list of reasons why they hate fracking. Hold on there! I wouldn’t be so quick to blame fracking. In every place where earthquakes are on the rise, we see an increase in the construction of windmills. Read more
