Hyper-Hypocrites: Greens Love Wind Power – In Your Backyard – But Never In Theirs

  Fascism comes in all shades, including ‘green’. Marching around and telling other people what to do, makes the green fascist no different than the jackbooted kind, of old. Where the green fascist differs, is in his ability to pontificate from the high moral ground, while engaging in every act he so vocally despises. Which […]

Germany Wind Industry Expansion Thwarted: Rural Revolt Preventing Construction of New Wind Power Projects

  In rural Germany, a rural revolt against wind power was inevitable. Close to 30,000 of these things have been speared across Deutschland, often within a stone’s throw of homes, towns and villages. Driven mad by practically incessant low-frequency noise and infrasound, watching whole forests clear-felled to make way for 300 tonne, 200m high turbines […]

The Sound of Silence: Iowa Farmers Cherish Peace & Quiet After Judge Shuts Down Wind Turbines

Anyone claiming that wind turbines are quiet has never lived with them in their backyards.

Merrily wrecking rural communities wherever it goes, the wind industry is facing real, red-blooded American resistance across the Midwest. In this piece from Minnesota’s The Globe, locals lament the day the wind industry rolled into […]

Falmouth’s Two Turbine Wind Farm Fiasco: Shutdown Order Leaves Town $7,000,000 in Debt

Take a small Massachusetts township, add two wind turbines, mix with hubris and arrogance and you have a perfect recipe for disaster. In the beginning, there was the notion that a wind turbine or two would help Falmouth save on power costs and unite the community in an effort to purportedly save the planet. That […]

Bound & Gagged: Wind Industry Shuts Down Community Complaints Using Punitive Gag Clauses

The wind industry is a law unto itself, merrily crushing community opposition with the help of pliant and gullible politicians. And, where corruption reaches its natural limit, cash takes over. Mind you, spending other people’s money is always a treat. Leases with farmers who ‘host’ the turbines and so-called “good neighbour” agreements with their neighbours […]
