Wind Turbines the Perfect Bushfire Starters: Fire & Fury Coming Soon to Your Backyard

As Australians brace for a searing summer, spare a thought for communities riddled with wind turbines: the perfect incendiary device. Around the world, hundreds have blown up in balls of flame – in the process – each one raining molten metal and over 1,000 litres of flaming gear oil and hydraulic fluid (see our post here) […]

Great Balls of Fire: More Terrifying Turbine Meltdowns Spell Serious & Unnecessary Bushfire Risk

As Australians brace for a searing summer, spare a thought for communities riddled with wind turbines: the perfect incendiary device. First, we’ll take a look at a few ‘clean’-energy conflagrations in Europe. Fire destroys wind turbine in the Emsland New Osnabrück Daniel Gonzalez-Tepper and Hermann Hinrichs 14 October 2018 Rhede. In the wind energy park […]

Germany’s Ticking Turbine Time Bombs: Green-Induced Environmental Nightmare Unfolds

The wind industry continues to deliver up a bevy of eco-irony, a gift to those sick to death of the moral piety dished up by its deluded acolytes. Turbines exploding into flames, blades exploding into the ether and turbines, well, just plain exploding – make a mockery of claims by cultists that wind power is […]

Irony Alert: Weather Destroys Weather Dependent Power Source – Lightning Incinerating Wind Turbines

The wind industry and those that promote it look more ridiculous, by the day. An entirely weather dependent power source, abandoned a couple of centuries back for pretty obvious reasons, exhibits all the resilience of a snowflake in summer. The irony that some ordinary old meteorological phenomenon (wind, rain and lightning) can easily knock wind […]

Wind Turbines: Safe, Clean & Green? Yeah, Right …

The spontaneous combustion of 300 tonne wind turbines, showering the earth with a toxic cocktail of molten-fibreglass and flaming lubricants is one of those tricky PR problems for big wind. On every occasion that one of these whirling wonders burst into flames, locals are told them it’s a rare and unusual event, never likely to […]

Wind Farm Neighbours Burnt Out by Bushfire Sparked by Infigen Pursue $Millions in NSW Supreme Court

  Wind turbines are as useless as they are dangerous. Their dangers include the ability of self-immolating turbines and/or the often shoddily constructed electricity infrastructure meant to support them to spark terrifying bushfires, especially in the tinder dry Australian countryside in summer – so far, at least 4 bushfires have been started by turbines in […]

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 […]
