Who put the “Clean” in “Clean” Energy Council?


The “Clean” tag just stretches the imagination.


Australia’s peak wind weasel lobby group is called the “Clean Energy Council”.

After watching this video, STT is not exactly sure why these boys can claim to be backing a “clean” form of energy at all?

In fact, we think they’re either abusing the English language beyond what it can ordinarily suffer – or they’re engaged in a half-clever ploy to divert our attention from the toxic truth about turbines.

See what you think:



For more on the toxic truth about wind power see our post here.

We are a group of citizens concerned about the rapid spread of industrial wind power generation installations across Australia.


  1. Jackie Rovenksy says:

    Australia and it’s various Governments should take note of the Principles within the RIO Declaration on Environment and Development, of which Australia is a signatory, some of which are quoted here:

    Human beings are at the centre of concerns for sustainable development. They are entitled to a healthy and productive life in harmony with nature.

    States have, in accordance with the Charter of the United Nations and the principles of international law, the sovereign right to exploit their own resources pursuant to their own environmental and developmental policies, and the responsibility to ensure that activities within their jurisdiction or control do not cause damage to the environment of other States or of areas beyond the limits of national jurisdiction.

    To achieve sustainable development and a higher quality of life for all people, States should reduce and eliminate unsustainable patterns of production and consumption and promote appropriate demographic policies.

    States shall develop national law regarding liability and compensation for the victims of pollution and other environmental damage. States shall also co-operate in an expeditious and more determined manner to develop further international law regarding liability and compensation for adverse effects of environmental damage caused by activities within their jurisdiction or control to areas beyond their jurisdiction.

    States should effectively co-operate to discourage or prevent the relocation and transfer to other States of any activities and substances that cause severe environmental degradation or are
    found to be harmful to human health.

    In order to protect the environment, the precautionary approach shall be widely applied by States according to their capabilities. Where there are threats of serious or irreversible damage, lack of full scientific certainty shall not be used as a reason for postponing cost-effective measures to prevent environmental degradation.”

    Question: Could purchasing of Turbines from China used in Australia in attempts to reduce our emissions contribution be considered Australia relocating and transferring severe environmental degradation and human health harm to another State, when we have the ability to either build our own in our own country, under strict environmental standards to prevent degradation and harm to our own people, or find some other way to reduce emissions which does not cause such degradation and harm?

  2. Low Frequency Noise has been my hell since 2008.
    Told to shut up and go away by everyone.
    No one cares.

  3. The “Clean” in Clean Energy Council presumably came along when the organisation was sanitised and rebadged, having started out as the Australian Wind Energy Association (Auswind). And a finer bunch of assorted rent seekers and parasites would be hard to find.

  4. And I have heard a large turbine requires 600 kgs of rare earth … real green!!!!!!

  5. The clean energy council, no, the dirty energy council, that’s better, all the grubs who are the wind weasel and greentard Goons.

  6. WHY do we not hear of this in the MEDIA?


    The Powers behind the Governments don’t want their DIRTY secrets out there for all of us to see.

    They keep the people IGNORANT.

    You can run, but you can’t hide forever.
    Cars with solar batteries – GREEN power hah
    Power saving bulbs – poison GREEN
    I am not seeing GREEN
    I am seeing Lies and more lies.

    Thank you STT

  7. See here for confirmation that for every tonne of rare earth minerals a tonne of radioactive waste is created. http://theconversation.com/should-malaysia-bear-the-burden-of-australian-radioactive-waste-9566
    Clean, green? Hello?….


  1. […] The mining and refining of neodymium is so dirty and toxic – involving repeated boiling in acid, with radioactive thorium as a waste product – that only one country does it – China. (See our posts here and here). […]
