Furious Fishermen Take On Offshore Wind Industry Wrecking Atlantic Fishing Grounds

The offshore wind ‘industry’ has been given a lesson by Atlantic fishermen: don’t mess with another man’s livelihood. Which is precisely what’s been happening up and down the Atlantic coast for years now. An Italian owned outfit, US Wind has been infuriating local fishermen for years. In one of its recent outrages, its survey ship […]

Furious Fishermen Sue To Stop Offshore Wind Industry Wrecking Fishing Grounds

Always making more enemies than friends, the wind industry is being sued by America’s fishermen to stop it wrecking their fishing grounds and livelihoods. Having ridden roughshod over communities on land for the best part of a generation, the wind industry has been doing so offshore, for more than a decade. But, when it comes […]

Net Zero Madness: Why Wind Power Expansion Plans Don’t Add Up

Akin to pushing on string, you can keep building these things ad infinitum and add nothing in terms of meaningful power generation capacity. It doesn’t matter whether a wind power fleet comprises a hundred, a thousand or a million wind turbines, when the wind stops blowing, they will deliver an almighty, collective doughnut. And it’s […]

Boris Johnson’s Bizarre Persistence With Unreliable Wind Power Defies All Logic & Reason

Insanity is doing that same thing over and over again and expecting different results, which is why STT raises an eyebrow (or two) at Boris Johnson’s persistent love affair with heavily subsidised and chaotically intermittent wind power. His belief that taking it all offshore will make a difference, only confirms that this man has a […]

Wanton Waste: World’s Largest Wind Farm = World’s Largest White Elephant

Want to make a small fortune? Then take a large one and put it into offshore wind power. The costs of generating sporadic electricity using wind are staggering; doing so offshore makes them astronomical. And, it seems, the bigger the boondoggle, the more costly it becomes for the unwitting taxpayers, who are always left to […]

Not Right: Offshore Wind Turbines Threaten Endangered Atlantic Right Whales

The environmental destruction wreaked by offshore wind power is one almighty whale of a problem. While all power generation systems take a toll on the environment, it’s only the wind industry that claims moral superiority over all others. That tenuous claim – which rests on the ‘we’re saving the planet’ mantra chanted by the wind […]

UK’s Costly Grid Chaos Continues, As Wind Power Continually Fails to Deliver

Start placing serious reliance on wind power and you can safely place your bets on daily disappointment. Such it is in Britain, with month upon month of pitiful performance from its fleet of whirling wonders. During most of September and into October, Europe’s wind farms were the victims of the Big Calm. The Wind Gods […]

Stunned Still: Offshore Wind Farm Power Cables Leave Crabs Mesmerised & Motionless

Seabirds, whales and dolphins aren’t offshore wind’s only victims – crabs are being mesmerised by the electromagnetic fields produced by the power cables that connect turbines to each other and to the grid. A scientific study has found that the magnetic fields generated by these cables attract crabs that then remain in place, fixated on […]

Fire & Fury: Giant Industrial Wind Turbines A Clear & Present Danger to Life & Limb

Giant industrial wind turbines routinely shed their blades, collapse and/or burst into terrifying fireballs. 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 […]

Totally Torched: Low-Cost Offshore Wind Power Claims Go Up In Smoke

Europe’s great wind drought continues, unabated. Adding to the wind industry’s woes, its claims that offshore wind power is ‘free’ and getting cheaper all the time have been totally torched – again. Over the last two years, Andrew Montford has been keeping a close eye on the financial reports produced by the UK’s offshore wind […]
