Shootin’ Up: Developers Killing Endangered Red Kites To Make Way For Wind Turbines

Wind power outfits are run by ‘ways and means’ kind of guys, who’ll say anything and do anything it takes to spear these things into your backyard and wallow in the massive subsidies which you’ll be liable to pay, forevermore. Now, it’s one thing to have millions of birds and bats sliced and diced with […]

State Sanctioned Slaughter: Wind Industry Killing Thousands Of Bald Eagles With Complete Impunity

Cars, cats and skyscrapers don’t kill Eagles – like the critically endangered Tasmanian wedge-tailed eagle, but 60m wind turbine blades with their tips travelling at 350Kph routinely smash them out of existence. The current crop of well-fed and poorly educated teens raging against the evil patriarchy and its grand conspiracy to cook the planet and demanding […]

Wind Industry Wipeout: Wind Turbines Killing Millions of America’s Bats: Endangered Species Under Threat

The wind industry claims a virtuous, moral superiority, but the millions of birds and bats that it slaughters each year, no doubt, think otherwise. If wind power proponents weren’t so arrogant and sanctimonious, the fact that their beloveds slice and dice countless birds and bats and crush millions of tonnes of beneficial insects each year […]

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 […]

Killer-App: Offshore Wind Turbines Wiping Out Entire Bird Species

While Greta frets about global incineration and mass extinctions, the wind industry is doing a very fine job of extinguishing millions of birds and bats, every year. Indeed, entire species are under threat, including Europe’s Red Kite and Tasmania’s Wedge Tailed Eagle. More generally, there’s a wave of avian carnage wherever the wind industry plies […]

Colossal Carnage: US Wind Industry Killing More Than 1,000,000 Birds & Bats Every Year

  The polished hypocrisy among those slavish worshippers of wind power is breathtaking. The wind industry is slaughtering millions of birds and bats every year and yet there’s barely a peep from these faux environmentalists. Sure, as James Taylor points out below, there’s the usual rubbish they dish up about skyscrapers killing more birds than […]

Bat Battle: Native Hawaiians Go to War with Wind Industry to Save Threatened Bat Species

Native Hawaiians, furious at the wind industry’s rampant bat slaughter, have gone to war to prevent another environmental nightmare from destroying their beloved bats and sacred homeland. So far, over 130 of them have been arrested for doing no more than taking a real interest in their environment. What’s at stake is the survival of […]

Blown Away: Counting the Colossal Cost of Cleaning Up ‘Clean’ Energy’s Monstrous Mess

Giant industrial wind turbines have an economic lifespan around 15 years, after which the chances are that they’ll be left to rust in some idiot’s back paddock. Decommissioning these things properly at a sizeable wind farm would run into the hundreds of millions. Then there’s the toxic waste. Already, thousands of 45-70m blades are being […]

Landscapes Lost: Endless Sea of Mega-Wind Turbines Destroying Rural Vistas Around The World

  Treasured rural landscapes are being trashed around the globe with a visual cacophony of 200-270m wind turbines, with their 60m blades slicing and dicing any critter fool enough to fly by, and driving neighbours nuts with their incessant, thumping and grinding low-frequency noise. All in the name of ‘saving the planet’, mind you. Across […]
