Don’t Say “We Didn’t Warn You”

**** “Risible”: provoking laughter through being ludicrous.  That’s a pretty fair summation of Australia’s so-called “wind industry” in the week just gone. It would be, except, wind power was pitched as a reliable replacement for on-demand power generation sources (like coal, hydro and gas) and a cost-effective means of reducing CO2 emissions.  Our political betters […]

Vestas’ Danish Victims Lay Out the FACTS

In response to the National Wind Power Fraud Rally in June, struggling Danish fan maker, Vestas paid $millions to a crack team of spin doctors to invent a campaign aimed at winning back the “moral” high ground.

Merry Christmas, Mr Napthine

STT champion Annie Gardner gives Victorian Premier Denis “I love turbines” Napthine a shot of what the hard working people of Macarthur can “look forward” to this Christmas.

One story we heard (possibly apocryphal) was when asked about […]

The wind war: men in suits against women on farms and …

This is disturbing footage. Compare Denis Napthine, smiling and in his suit, repeating the fraudulent jobs mantra, with Anne Gardner talking about the affects of Macarthur wind farm on her family and her community. “We’re desperate,” she says. “We don’t know what to do.
