Why Wind Power is the Greatest Economic & Environmental Fraud in History

When called upon the think of certainties, gravity springs to mind (at least on earth). Although, for the wind industry it does tend to deliver harsh results – see above, yet another fatal collapse, this time in Lincoln, Nebraska. Another certainty, is that once people tackle the facts, they turn against wind power with a […]

Japanese Pyro Saga: Wind Turbine Explodes in Fireball at Nuclear Power Plant

STT followers might have twigged to our sense of irony which, on the odd occasion, drifts all the way to sarcasm. Sometimes a wry line requires considered imagination. But, other times, this stuff literally writes itself. This saga from Saga in Japan is almost too funny for words. Anti-nuke scaremongers rave on about the purported […]

Wind Turbine Noise & Vibration Causing Harm to Humans & Animals Alike

For those unfortunates forced to live with incessant turbine generated low-frequency noise and infrasound, the cause of the sleep deprivation they suffer is no mystery. Moreover, a menagerie of domestic and wild animals stuck next to wind turbines suffer similar effects, including well-documented increases in the stress hormone cortisol (see our post here). Dr Mariana […]

Trifecta of Wind Turbine Terror: Blades Snap, Flames Crackle Nacelles & Whole Turbines Drop

  Safety: Snap, Crackle, and Drop Master Resource Lisa Linowes 19 June  2017 Wind turbine safety had an ugly three weeks. During the late hours of May 31, a turbine blade at NextEra’s Breckinridge Center in Oklahoma (in-service since August 2015), broke off near its base and was thrown to the ground – snap.   Days later on […]

More Wind Turbine Self-Incinerations & 10 Tonne Blade Throws

For something that the wind industry keeps telling us is as rare as hen’s teeth, the unshackling of 10 tonne blades (euphemistically called ‘component liberation’), the total collapse of 200-300 tonne turbines and the spontaneous combustion of turbine generators (and the 1,000 litres of highly toxic gear and hydraulic oil that slosh around inside the […]

German Truck Driver Crushed by Runaway 62m Wind Turbine Blade

That the wind industry is responsible for havoc and chaos is not news to STT followers, but normally it’s rocketing power prices, wrecking power markets and grids and ruining communities that springs to mind. In this case, the mayhem arose even before the blades started spinning in some dimwit’s back paddock. Driver is crushed by […]
