AGL’s Macarthur Wind Farm Victims Join the Call for an Immediate Moratorium

In last night’s post, we covered the call by a growing band of Australian Senators for an immediate moratorium on the construction of any more of these things – unless and until they’ve been exonerated, beyond all reasonable doubt, as the cause of a raft of noise related health effects suffered by wind farm neighbours; […]

Farmers ‘Hosting’ Wind Turbines Face Massive Clean Up Bills & Other Legal Liability

When the wind industry fiasco inevitable grinds to a halt sometime in the next decade, those that entertained it – be it dimwitted farmers who traded 30 pieces of silver to destroy their communities or the local governments that rubber stamped the DAs that permitted it – are going to be left with a monumental […]

Environment Minister, Greg Hunt Backs Slaughter of ‘Protected’ Eagles With Taxpayer Underwritten ‘Loans’ for Wind Farms

**** The number of Liberal (Australia’s once small-government, conservative, business and family friendly) Party MPs that hold a bizarre affection for these things can be tallied up on one hand.
