Lying To Survive: Desperate Wind Industry Claims That Wind Power’s Both Reliable & Cheap Busted (Again)

The wind industry was built on lies and runs on subsidies. Spin doctors, practised in the fine art of deception, have been gainfully employed for almost 30 years in an effort to turn night into day, in order to keep the subsidies coming and to prevent them from ever being cut. Politicians and a gullible […]

Game Changer: US Start-up’s Small Nuclear Plants to Make Big Difference to World’s Energy Future

Anyone banging on about carbon dioxide gas and climate change, and not promoting nuclear power, can’t be taken seriously. Nuclear power is the only stand-alone power generation source that does not emit carbon dioxide gas during the generation process. And, unlike chaotically intermittent wind and solar, it’s available 24 x 365. That the world’s third largest […]

Guilty: Giant UK Wind Farm Forced to Pay £4.5 Million to Compensate Its Blackout Victims

If unreliable, weather-dependent wind power isn’t a recipe for disaster, it’s most certainly a recipe for chaos. Electricity grids are complex critters, designed around strict tolerances to allow what’s dispatched to them by generators (supply) to perfectly match what’s taken out of them by customers (demand aka ‘the load’). For an explanation of what a […]

Bat-tered: Government Cancels Approval for Completed Wind Farm to Save Endangered Bat Species

Following the cancellation of 758 wind projects in Ontario, its government has further delighted locals with the decision to revoke approval for the (almost complete) Nations Rise project, at North Stormont, near Ottawa. This time the decision announced by Jeff Yurek, Ontario’s Minister of Environment, Conservation and Parks, was not one based purely on the […]

Bird Battle: Conservationists Sue US Government to Stop Wind Power Bird Slaughter

The silence from traditional conservation groups against the wind industry’s rampant bird slaughter is deafening. Once upon a time, hirsute, hair-shirted and sandal wearing tree huggers would die in a ditch to prevent harm to any of God’s other creatures. That was, of course, before industrial wind power hove into view. Groups like the Sierra […]

Hush Money: Government Plans to Bribe German Families Complaining About Wind Turbine Noise to Quell Wind Farm Backlash

The wind industry in Germany is in freefall: in 2019 less than 200 turbines were erected onshore and a trifling 160 are planned for 2020, so far. Over the last two decades, heavily subsidised wind power outfits managed to spear almost 30,000 of these things across rural Germany. Driven mad by practically incessant, turbine generated […]

Vindicated: Supreme Court Slams Developer For Ignoring Wind Turbine Noise Effects on Neighbours

Call it the ‘luck of the Irish’. Over the last few months locals have racked up a string of victories against wind power outfits for all manner of sins, crimes and misdemeanours. In November the Irish government was slammed with a €5 million fine for failing to apply its very own environmental standards at a […]
