Industrialised Landscapes & Battered Communities Drive German Backlash Against Big Wind

Germany’s wind power obsession has turned picture postcard landscapes into alien, industrial war zones – of the kind dreamt up by futurist HG Wells. In the beginning, carpetbaggers, rent seekers and their eco-zealot, shock troops sold the ‘transition’ to an all wind and sun powered future as an ecological idyll. Except, the reality has fallen […]

Fact Factory: Smashing Big Wind Starts & Ends With Data & Detail

What the wind industry hates most are facts; facts about rocketing power prices, massive subsidies, chaotic intermittency, incessant noise and consequent harm to neighbour’s health, the destruction of birds and bats, the destruction of underground water supplies, turbines spontaneously combusting, disintegrating or throwing their blades to the four winds. We could go on. On this […]

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 […]

  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 […]
