Another One Bites the Dust: 200 Tonne Wind Turbines Continually Beaten By Gravity

Throwing their 12-20 tonne blades to the four winds, spontaneously combusting and collapsing in catastrophic fashion is what wind turbines do best; these things appear to be in a constant battle with gravity. Remember, this is the power source that promises a clean, ‘green’ future! And that rural communities just can’t wait have hundreds of these things […]

Not So Safe: Spontaneous Wind Turbine Fires Pose Mortal Threat to Life & Property

STT has covered wind turbine fires dozens of times, including those which have sparked out-of-control bushfires, placing life at mortal risk. 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 […]

Death Dodgers: On How to Avoid Being Impaled by Flying Wind Turbine Blade Chunks

With thousands of these things being speared into the backyards of closely settled rural communities, the risk of death and serious injury, only increases. The wind industry (which really only got off the ground in the late 1990s and still generates a trifling amount of electricity) has clocked up around 220 fatalities, – see the helpful […]

Arson About: Giant Industrial Wind Turbines Sparking Wildfires Across USA

People fretting about global warming clearly haven’t experienced a wildfire sparked by a self-immolating wind turbine. An out-of-control wildfire is a terrifying experience. Self-incinerating wind turbines have joined arsonists and lightning strikes as the cause of that terror. Whereas lightning is an unavoidable natural occurrence and arsonists live in fear of being caught and punished, […]

Fatal Attraction: Transport & Construction Workers Add to Wind Industry’s Mounting Death Toll

Claims that 300 tonne wind turbines are safe as houses fall hollow with each self-immolation, total collapse and ‘component liberation’ event. Far from being safe, clean and green, this is an industry that has already killed 200 people. By way of comparison, the French get 75-85% of their power from nuclear plants and haven’t suffered so much […]

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 […]

Turbines Tumble: Another 230 Metre, 300 Tonne Whirling Wonder Bites the Dust

Throwing their blades to the four winds, spontaneously combusting and collapsing in catastrophic fashion is what wind turbines do best. Remember, this is the power source that promises a clean, ‘green’ future! And that rural communities just can’t wait have hundreds of these things speared into their backyards. Except, of course, if those backyards belong to former Greens leaders, like Dr […]

Want Safe, Reliable & Affordable Electricity? Then Start Thinking Nuclear, Right Now

The French get 70-80% of their power from nuclear plants and haven’t suffered so much as a scratch since they started in 1962. By contrast, the wind industry (which really only got off the ground in the late 1990s and still generates a trifling amount of electricity) has clocked up around 200 fatalities, (eg, see above) […]

New Green Deal Turns Sour: Counting Colossal Environmental Cost of Wind & Solar Obsession

  The true environmental and social cost of intermittent wind and solar is simply staggering. Millions of solar panels are already being dumped in landfill, and millions of nonrecyclable wind turbine blades are joining them; altogether creating a toxic legacy the generation who blindly championed so-called ‘green’ energy. A few posts back we carried a […]

How Long Do Wind Turbines Last? 10 Years or Until The Subsidies Run Out (Whichever Occurs First)

Wind power outfits still claim their turbines run on the smell of an oily rag and last for 25 years or more, needing little more than a hug from time to time. However, the operations and maintenance cost of these things, as reported by Australia’s Infigen, is around $25 per MWh (hardly the zero marginal […]
