Britain’s Ministry of Truth – the BBC – omits all but the “Convenient” facts on the Great Wind Power Fraud


In spinning the great wind power fraud, silence is more than golden.


In recent weeks, STT followers have been treated to a pitched battle between Australia’s National broadcaster, the ABC’s “Ministry of Truth” (aka Media Watch) and the facts.

In Media Watch’s case, it’s a battle with the true facts about the known and obvious adverse health effects caused by incessant turbine generated low-frequency noise and infrasound, as laid out in Steven Cooper’s recent groundbreaking acoustic work at Cape Bridgewater (see our posts here and here and – for the study – see our posts here and here).

It seems that publicly funded media around the globe are in the employ of the wind industry; as they instantly howl down anything that’s in any way inconsistent with their “doublespeak” and “doublethink” narratives, always supportive of the greatest economic and environmental fraud of all time.

And if deliberating lying about, and otherwise misrepresenting, the true facts doesn’t get the “job” done, then the other piece of kit in their propaganda tool-box, is good old fashioned silence.

Here’s The Telegraph’s Chris Booker on the BBC’s latest efforts to keep a lid on the less palatable parts of the great wind power fraud.

The BBC didn’t tell us all the facts in its excitement about a vast new offshore wind farm, writes Christopher Booker

The BBC naturally got very excited by the news that Ed Davey, our Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change, has given the go-ahead to the largest offshore wind farm in the world – 400 monster turbines covering 436 square miles of the North Sea.

What the BBC didn’t mention was that this £8 billion project, producing on average 840 megawatts of electricity, will earn for its mainly Norwegian and German owners some £900 million a year in subsidies, paid by all of us through our electricity bills.

Neither did the BBC mention that, in Manchester, another foreign-owned consortium is currently building, for only an eighth of the capital cost, a gas-fired power station. It will produce a similar amount of electricity, up to 880 megawatts, whenever it is needed and without a penny of subsidy.

A further point not mentioned by the BBC was that, until quite recently, the chairman of Forewind, the consortium behind the North Sea project, was Lord Deben (aka John Gummer), until it was thought appropriate that he should resign when he became chairman of the Committee on Climate Change, set up to give the Government “independent” advice on its energy policy.

But he was replaced as Forewind’s chairman by Charles Hendry, who had just stepped down in turn from being Ed Davey’s colleague as Minister of State at the Department of Energy and Climate Change.

All very cosy. But at least it means that some of those £900 million a year we pay in subsidies will be going to a good British home.

The Ministry of Truth: where “massive subsidies”
seem to be among the hardest words of all.

  3. It will be interesting to see what Davey’s next career move is when hopefully he gets the boot in May.
