Environmental Disaster: Wind Turbines Continually Catch Fire, Throw Blades & Collapse

California’s wind power proponents promised a clean, green future – instead, they’ve delivered a wholesale environmental disaster. In the desert surrounding Ocotillo, locals have been putting up with wind turbines self-immolating, throwing their blades in all directions, leaking and spraying oil and collapsing to the desert floor, for years now (see our post here). Here’s […]

Unwanted Waste: Company Busted For Illegally Dumping Hundreds of Giant Wind Turbine Blades

Millions of industrial wind turbine blades are heading for landfill to become a toxic headache for future generations, all in the name of purportedly “saving the planet”. While dumping 45-60m long blades weighing between 10 and 20 tonnes in giant pits might seem like an easy solution, it’s a costly one that plenty of wind […]

Spreading Scourge: Wind Turbine Blades Shedding Toxic Plastics During Operation

There’s a landfill legacy being created by wind turbine blades, with the First World cynically using the Third World as its dumping ground: ‘Green’ Energy’s Poisonous Legacy: Millions of Toxic Turbine Blades Destined for African Landfills Thousands of 45-70m blades (weighing between 10 to 25 tonnes) are being ground up and mixed with concrete used in the bases […]

Not Cool: Another Reason to Reject Unreliable Wind Power – Iced Up Blades Totally Disables Turbines

During the recent Big Freeze, thousands of Texan wind turbines were frozen solid, incapacitated by burst of frigid winter conditions. Dead calm weather meant that those that weren’t frozen stiff, added practically nothing to the grid. While the internal workings of wind turbines (gearboxes, generators, yaw and blade pitch controls) can be kept operable with […]

‘Green’ Killing Machines: Eagle Slaughtering 50-60m Wind Turbine Blades Perfect Apex Predator

Those running ‘interference’ for the wind industry claim wind turbines couldn’t harm a fly, let alone kill birds of any consequence. Apparently having no experience of apex predators like Eagles, Kites, Hawks and Falcons, the wind cultist/apologist/propagandist asserts that more birds are killed by flying into windows or being struck by cars, than their beloved […]

Out of Sight: What to Do With Germany’s 1.35 Million Tonnes of Toxic Wind Turbine Blades?

The rush to an all wind and sun powered future has left Germans sensing the kind of regret that comes with youthful exuberance – something about acting in haste and repenting at leisure springs to mind. Having carpeted Deutschland with more than 30,000 of these things over the last 20 years, many of them are […]

How Green Is This?: Millions of Toxic Solar Panels & Wind Turbine Blades Destined for Landfill

The millions of solar panels being dumped in landfills are a veritable toxic cocktail of gallium arsenide, tellurium, silver, crystalline silicon, lead, cadmium and other heavy metals. Then there’s the landfill legacy being created by wind turbine blades, with the First World cynically using the Third World as its dumping ground: ‘Green’ Energy’s Poisonous Legacy: Millions of Toxic […]

The Big Cover Up: Wind Industry Burying Millions of Toxic Turbine Blades In Landfills

Mike Moore’s Planet of the Humans lifted the lid on the mountains of toxic filth generated by so-called ‘green’ energy, much to the horror of renewable energy rent seekers and climate cult zealots, alike. Solar panels are a veritable toxic cocktail of gallium arsenide, tellurium, silver, crystalline silicon, lead, cadmium, and heavy earth material. Then […]

Toxic Truth: Millions Of Solar Panels & Wind Turbine Blades Destined For Landfills

The so-called wind and solar ‘industries’ are barely out of nappies, and yet they’re already responsible for a smorgasbord of toxic waste. The magnets in wind turbine generators are made from neodymium and dysprosium, rare earth minerals mined almost exclusively in China, which controls 95 percent of the world’s supply of rare earth minerals. The […]

Icy Killer: Motorists Forced to Dodge Huge Chunks of Ice Thrown From Wind Turbine Blades

Wind power’s meant to be clean, green and safe as houses, but these things have a habit of hurling deadly chunks of ice at people on foot, motorists and the buildings people occupy. Throwing 10 tonne blades hundreds of metres, and chunks thereof, for kilometres isn’t the limit of the wholly unnecessary risk created by giant industrial wind […]
