Black Forest’s Bleak Future: German Wilderness Wiped Out to Make Way For 1,000 Wind Turbines

Apparently, turning wilderness into smouldering ash is all for the greater good, provided it’s to make way for 260m high/300 tonne industrial juggernauts, aka wind turbines. Germany has speared over 30,000 of these things across its countryside. As land for doing so has become increasingly scarce, the strategy has been to clear-fell forests that were […]

Land Hunger Games: Biden’s Plan to Carpet America With Energy Diffuse Wind & Solar

It’s not just wind and solar power’s pathetic performance that makes the whole virtue signalling exercise so utterly pointless. It’s also the fact that, to generate anything other than a trivial amount of electricity, you need the best part of a continent’s land area to do it. To accommodate 2,000 MW of coal, gas or […]

Why Not Get Out & See Nature? Before The Wind Industry Destroys It – For Good

It’s not just the visual and aural cacophony these things create, it’s what they destroy that troubles the real environmentalist. It is not just the fact that giant industrial wind turbines are slaughtering millions of birds and bats every year that rankles. It’s also the gross industrialisation of landscapes, once cherished by those in love […]

North Sea Annihilation: Offshore Wind Power Destroying Marine Environment In New & Exciting Ways

Energy generation systems of all descriptions take their toll, but only one of them claims moral superiority over all others. That increasingly tenuous claim rests on the ‘we’re saving the planet’ mantra – chanted by the wind cult around the Globe. Offshore wind turbine noise and vibration has clocked up a number of Cetacean fatalities, […]

Inconvenient Truths: Spanish Solar Firm Slaughters 500 Native Deer to Make Way for Panels

The modern ‘green’ worships wind turbines and solar panels in the belief that they’re literally saving the planet, merrily ignoring the wave of environmental destruction wrought by their beloveds. Solar panels are pitched as the paragon of ‘green’ energy, silently caressing the sun’s rays to give off an occasional burst of power that someone, somewhere […]

Burn Baby, Burn: Whole Forests Felled to Fire Up Biofuel Subsidy Bonanza

Easily the most unhinged ‘renewable’ energy source is ‘biofuel’: a euphemism for the wholesale clearfelling and burning of forests in converted coal-fired power plants. Apparently, burning fossilised forests from the Carboniferous period 300 million years ago is a deadly sin against nature – all that carbon dioxide gas (that plants crave) must be doing someone […]

Out of Sight, Out of Mind: Counting the Colossal Cost of Wind & Solar’s Toxic Legacy

Behind every smug Tesla driving show pony, there’s literally a toxic lake of sludge building up somewhere in another part of the world. Every wind turbine, every all EV and every solar panel critically depends upon a myriad of so-called ‘rare earths’. The minerals in question have become ‘rare’, of late, as a consequence of […]

Clear & Present Danger: Industrial Wind Turbines Pose Permanent Wildfire Threat

Contrary to their ‘super-safe’, ‘clean’, ‘green’ image, giant industrial wind turbines are the perfect incendiary device. Around the world, hundreds have exploded into in palls of smoke and balls of flame – in the process – each one raining molten metal and over 1,000 litres of flaming gear oil and hydraulic fluid (see our post here) […]

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 […]

New Bog Standard: Irish Wind Industry Turning Emerald Isle Into Filthy Quagmire

The wind industry is relentlessly ploughing up Irish fields and peat bogs, leaving a filthy wake of destruction in its path. The Irish government (read ‘taxpayer’) was whacked with a €5 million fine when a mudslide caused by one wind power outfit’s construction operations unleashed a filthy torrent into a nearby river, wiping out tens […]
