New Sustainability Standard: Wind Industry Illegally Dumping Thousands of Turbine Blades

As hundreds of thousands of toxic wind turbine blades head for landfills near you, thousands more are being dumped illegally. Across the USA, wind power outfits are being repeatedly busted for dumping their blades and simply cutting and running. Last August, we reported on one blade ‘recycling’ company busted for illegally storing hundreds of wind turbine […]

Toxic Blade Time Bomb: New Study Exposes Scale of Wind Industry’s Poisonous Plastics Legacy

Landfills are the final destination for millions of worn-out wind turbine blades, where their toxic plastics will be left to rot for the ‘benefit’ of generations to come. These 10-20 tonne, 40-60m long chunks of plastic, fibreglass, balsa wood and resins can’t be recycled, so the wind industry has been dumping them quietly for years […]

Planet Sized Problem: Millions More Wind Turbine Blades Destined for Landfills Near You

Mike Moore’s Planet of the Humans exposed the mountains of toxic filth generated by so-called ‘green’ energy, much to the horror of renewable energy rent-seekers and climate cult zealots, alike. Solar panels are a veritable toxic cocktail of gallium arsenide, tellurium, silver, crystalline silicon, lead, cadmium, and heavy earth material. Then there’s the landfill legacy being created […]

Busted: Government Fines Another Wind Turbine Blade ‘Recycler’ For Illegal Dumping

Dumping 45-60m long, 10-20 tonne turbine blades in landfills is a costly ‘solution’ that many wind power outfits seem keen to avoid. Back in August, we reported on one blade ‘recycling’ company busted for illegally storing hundreds of wind turbine blades at three sites in Iowa. Global Fiberglass Solutions Inc had accumulated some 1,300 blades […]

Renewable Energy Rubbish: Who Pays to Clean Up ‘Green’ Energy’s Colossal Mess?

Wind turbines and solar panels produce rubbish energy and, after a decade or so, they’re simply rubbish. Where wind and solar lack constancy in their ability to produce power as and when we need it, they make up for it in their ability to produce a constant stream of toxic waste. Here’s one from the […]

Unwanted Waste: Company Busted For Illegally Dumping Hundreds of Giant Wind Turbine Blades

Millions of industrial wind turbine blades are heading for landfill to become a toxic headache for future generations, all in the name of purportedly “saving the planet”. While dumping 45-60m long blades weighing between 10 and 20 tonnes in giant pits might seem like an easy solution, it’s a costly one that plenty of wind […]

Why Everything You’ve Heard About Solar Is Wrong: What the Media Don’t Want You to Know

The mainstream press would have you believe that we’re already being exclusively powered by wind and solar, and that neither of them have any downside, at all. Michael Shellenberger knows otherwise. Michael, with his properly reasoned support for nuclear power, draws plenty of heat from the pro-unreliables hacks in the MSM for his equally reasoned […]

Spreading Scourge: Wind Turbine Blades Shedding Toxic Plastics During Operation

There’s a landfill legacy being created by wind turbine blades, with the First World cynically using the Third World as its dumping ground: ‘Green’ Energy’s Poisonous Legacy: Millions of Toxic Turbine Blades Destined for African Landfills Thousands of 45-70m blades (weighing between 10 to 25 tonnes) are being ground up and mixed with concrete used in the bases […]

Demolition Squad: What Happens to Worn Out Wind Turbines? They Get Blown to Bits

With an economic lifespan of around 15 years, thousands of these things are already on life support and hundreds are already terminal. When their palliative care reaches the end-of-life phase, it’s time to call in the demolition squad to do their darndest. The video below of 90 Mitsubishi turbines being dropped to earth with tons […]

Out of Sight: What to Do With Germany’s 1.35 Million Tonnes of Toxic Wind Turbine Blades?

The rush to an all wind and sun powered future has left Germans sensing the kind of regret that comes with youthful exuberance – something about acting in haste and repenting at leisure springs to mind. Having carpeted Deutschland with more than 30,000 of these things over the last 20 years, many of them are […]
