Callous Carnage: Wind Industry Slicing & Dicing Threatened Bird & Bat Species With Impunity

The latest meme amongst climate alarmists is that the rate of species extinction is running rampantly out-of-control. So dire are the warnings that, if they materialise, we’ll be lucky if we get to spot any kind of critter crawling the earth, in a decade or two. However, there wouldn’t be much sport in criticising hysterical […]

Why Wind Power Can Never Work (Unless it’s Rocketing Power Prices & Environmental Destruction You’re After?)

Australian voters just rejected a massive increase in wind and solar, relegating Bill Shorten and his 50% RET to the dusty pages of history. Having had 20 years or so to convince Australians of the purported ‘merits’ of throwing more than $4,000,000,000 in subsidies at chaotically intermittent wind and solar each year, the rent seekers […]

Busted Bugs: German Wind Turbines Demolishing 1,200 Tonnes of Insects Each Year

Giant industrial wind turbines represent an existential threat to birds, bats, bees and a veritable host of other insect species. For just about anything on the wing, their 50-60m blades represent the end of the line. And the carnage is measured in the thousands of tonnes. A few weeks back we covered some German research […]

Bug’s Life: Bees & Other Flying Critters Being Wiped Out By Wind Turbines

Giant industrial wind turbines mean an ignominious slaughter for almost anything on the wing. 50-80m blades, with their tips travelling at over 300 km/h, readily slice and dice birds and bats in their millions every year. Then there’s a smorgasbord of smaller flying critters, like bees, wasps, dragonflies and other environmentally and agriculturally beneficial insects […]

Avian Exodus: Loons Vacate Vast Tracts of North Sea To Escape Wind Turbines

The wind industry’s rampant bird and bat slaughter is an inconvenient truth, to be sure. The wholesale slaughter of millions of birds and bats – includes rare, endangered and majestic species, like America’s iconic bald and golden eagles. The default response from the wind industry is to lie like fury and – when the corpses can no […]

Industrialised Murder: Indian Study Shows Wind Turbines Slaughter 75% of Local Raptors

  One issue that annoys RE zealots, like a burr under a frisky pony’s saddle blanket, is the wind industry’s rampant bird and bat slaughter. It’s an inconvenient truth to be sure. But, as with everything that the wind industry does, if you can’t keep a straight face while lying about it any more, then […]

‘Green’ Killing Fields: Wind Turbines Responsible for Massive & Unnecessary Bird Slaughter

  Renewable energy zealots didn’t invent hypocrisy, but they seem quite comfortable wearing it, like their very own badge of honour. If wind power was even close to being a meaningful power generation source, you might, just might justify the wave of environmental and societal destruction that comes with it. Abandoned centuries ago for pretty […]
