NSW Planning Dept Scotches Jupiter Wind Farm Project: Locals Ecstatic

  Utterly pointless and universally detested in the communities where they get speared, wind turbines have one real purpose: harvesting subsidies. Communities that get organised early and fight hard from the get go have a chance of avoiding becoming ‘road-kill’ for renewables rent seekers. However, start bargaining with wind power outfits about setbacks from homes, […]

Backlash Against Big Wind: Victorian Communities Vent Fury at AGL

Nothing generates personal hatred and deep-seated division, quite like the threat of wind turbines being speared into peaceful and prosperous rural communities. While the wind industry, its parasites and spruikers still attempt the line that rural communities are falling over themselves to get in on some wind farm action, their spin and the reality are […]

Ontario: Water, Water Everywhere – But Thanks to Wind Turbines – Not A Drop to Drink

  Wind farm neighbours are forced to endure all manner of wholly unnecessary suffering. Incessant turbine generated low-frequency noise and infrasound drives them nuts at nighttime or, in plenty of cases, out of their homes, altogether. In Ontario, around the shores of the Great Lakes, the latest outrage involves wind power outfits destroying local underground […]

Cuomo’s Curse: Wind Power Obsession Leaves New Yorkers with Rocketing Power Bills

If wind power really is cheap and getting cheaper all the time, why is it that every State or Nation ‘powered’ by the weather is suffering power prices magnitudes higher than those that continue merrily chugging away on coal, gas or nuclear power? South Australia, Denmark and Germany suffer the highest power prices in the […]

Community Backlash Against Big Wind: Massachusetts Residents’ Unanimous Vote Blocks Future Wind Projects

  Remember all the guff about rural communities falling over themselves to get into bed with big wind? No? STT has forgotten those well-polished propaganda pieces, too. Watching reasonable people turn against wind power with a vengeance is one of life’s inevitable events – like herds of hungry Wildebeests prowling the Serengeti in search of […]

Brits Tear Down Lake District Wind Turbines to Restore Pristine Views: Locals Delighted

  Among the wind cult, it’s apparently the ‘aesthetics’ of these things that titillate the senses and get their juices flowing: just knowing that they’re out there somewhere (in someone else’s backyard, not their own) gently caressing the breezes, is more than enough for starry-eyed wind worshippers. Ignore the hundreds of $billions squandered on subsidies for […]

Scots Win Court Battle to Stop Wind Farm Proposal Poisoning Water Supply

Destroying underground water supplies is just another “wonderful” feature of eco-friendly wind power.  The largest of these things require a steel reinforced concrete base of around 400-500 m³. For 3MW turbines the bottom of the base itself – depending on the soil profile and rock strata – will sit between 5m and 10 m below […]
