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 […]

Industrial Devolution: Renewables Obsession Leaves German Industry Crushed By Rocketing Power Prices

No country went harder and faster with its renewable obsession than Germany. The rocketing power prices that inevitably followed are crushing its once thriving industries, including motor manufacturers such as Mercedes-Benz. The idea that a critical input cost to manufacturing can be tripled without affecting profitability and employment is, as any student of that dismal […]

Green Hypocrisy Writ Large: Wind Industry’s Wholesale Destruction of Entire Forest Habitats

  Wiping out entire forest habitats is all part of our ‘inevitable’ transition to a wind powered future. Across Germany, millions of acres of forest have been clear-felled and great swathes cut through others, to allow some 29,000 of these things to be speared across Deutschland. The same is happening in the Green Mountain State, […]

It’s-A-Knockout: European Wind Industry’s Total Collapse: Firms Bankrupt & Thousands Sacked

The wholesale collapse of Europe’s wind industry suggests that so-called ‘sustainable’ energy ain’t so sustainable, after all. Big turbine manufacturers are sacking workers in droves, watching their share prices plummet and pulling out all stops to stave off bankruptcy. Accumulating hundreds of €millions in losses, turbine maker Senvion entered into self-administered bankruptcy/liquidation in April. Danish […]

Peoples’ Revolt: Hawaiians Join International Backlash Against Industrial Wind Power

The wind industry has never had it so tough; subsidies are being slashed, destroying their ‘business’ model and rural communities are in full-scale revolt, sick of being treated as ‘roadkill’. No matter where the wind industry plies its subsidy-soaked trade, rural folk soon turn hostile. The German wind industry is at a standstill, not only […]

Game Over: German Wind Industry In Freefall: Turbine Makers Sack Thousands in Mass Layoffs

The manufacturers of turbines and solar panels are dropping like flies, as subsidies are rolled back across Europe. So-called ‘green’ jobs are a case of easy come, easy go. The wind and solar ‘industries’ that gave birth to those jobs simply can’t survive without massive and endless subsidies, which means their days are numbered. With […]
