Licenced to Kill: Government Endorses Wind Industry’s Rampant Eagle Slaughter

When it comes to killing majestic raptors, ‘green’ hypocrisy is the new black. Apex avian predators are top of the food chain for 60 m wind turbine blades with their outer tips travelling at over 350 Kph. RE zealots seem untroubled by the carnage. The usual nonsense retort is that cats, motorcars or skyscrapers kill […]

Double Standards: Greens Run Silent on Wind Turbine Bird & Bat & Bug Slaughter

The media went nuts when former Greens leader, Bob Brown turned on a wind farm in his backyard. Rampant hypocrisy, was just the first of the charges levelled at a man renowned for his hatred of reliable and affordable electricity. In the result, the Liberal/National Coalition were very grateful that Dr Bob’s hatred of coal […]

Eagle Eyes: Locals Catch Wind Developer Lying About Bald Eagles Nesting on Project Site

Remember all that guff about wind power being ‘clean’, ‘green’ and oh so good for the environment? Wind power is promoted by a crowd that tells us that carpeting the planet with bat-chomping, bird slicing, blade-chucking, pyrotechnic, sonic-torture devices is all for the ‘greater good’: despite these things – as a wholly weather dependent power source – being incapable of […]

Why Wind Power Can Never Work (Unless it’s Rocketing Power Prices & Environmental Destruction You’re After?)

Australian voters just rejected a massive increase in wind and solar, relegating Bill Shorten and his 50% RET to the dusty pages of history. Having had 20 years or so to convince Australians of the purported ‘merits’ of throwing more than $4,000,000,000 in subsidies at chaotically intermittent wind and solar each year, the rent seekers […]

Industrialised Murder: Indian Study Shows Wind Turbines Slaughter 75% of Local Raptors

  One issue that annoys RE zealots, like a burr under a frisky pony’s saddle blanket, is the wind industry’s rampant bird and bat slaughter. It’s an inconvenient truth to be sure. But, as with everything that the wind industry does, if you can’t keep a straight face while lying about it any more, then […]

‘Green’ Vandalism: The Mounting Toll of Wind Industry’s Wave of Ecological Destruction

In 2018, it’s easier to find a deluded wind turbine hugger, than an old-fashioned tree hugger. Michael Shellenberger is regarded as one of America’s leading environmental advocates, but his avowed hatred of subsidised, intermittent and unreliable wind and solar puts him at odds with his contemporaries. To the extent that carbon dioxide gas concerns him, […]

‘Green’ Energy Carnage: Vultures Join Eagles in Wind Industry’s Growing Carcass Count

In the battle for hearts and minds, the one issue that seems to annoy the wind industry like a burr under a frisky pony’s saddle blanket is the wholesale slaughter of millions of birds and bats. It’s an inconvenient truth to be sure. But, as with everything that the wind industry does, if you can’t […]
