Lessons from Denmark: Danes Slash Wind Power Subsidies to Salvage Economy

Electricity-prices-europe

The wind industry is mounted on myth and fuelled by fantasy. In Australia, its parasites and spruikers must believe that we are still cut off from the known world (suffering from what was referred to as the “tyranny of distance”) when they peddle stories about Europeans still being wedded to wind power. On that score, […]

Wind is an occasional ally in all sorts of recreational pursuits: sailing, kite surfing, puffing on a ready-to-burst dandelion and watching their parasol seeds drift skywards, and the childish delight of sending kites aloft.
