Wilderness Wipeout: Giant Wind & Solar Farms Destroying Pristine Wildlife Habitats

  The scale of the environmental destruction wreaked by giant wind and solar farms is out of all proportion to the economic benefits they provide; if any. Apart from the subsidies they attract, STT can’t think of any. Wiping out entire forest habitats is all part of our ‘inevitable’ transition to a wind powered future. […]

On The Beach: Whales Deafened By Offshore Wind Turbine Noise Die Stranded Onshore

The wind industry has been slaughtering millions of birds, bats and insects for years; and offshore it’s been killing off whales and dolphins, as well. Energy power generation system takes its toll on the environment, but it’s only the wind industry that claims moral superiority over all others. That tenuous claim – which rests on […]

Busted: Irish Wind Project Slammed For Breaching EU Environmental Directives

It’s a rare and beautiful thing when wind power outfits have their feet held to the fire. Writing their own set of rules and riding roughshod over locals has been the standard mode of operation for the wind industry, from the get go.

Green Hypocrisy Writ Large: Wind Industry’s Wholesale Destruction of Entire Forest Habitats

  Wiping out entire forest habitats is all part of our ‘inevitable’ transition to a wind powered future. Across Germany, millions of acres of forest have been clear-felled and great swathes cut through others, to allow some 29,000 of these things to be speared across Deutschland. The same is happening in the Green Mountain State, […]

Bat Battle: Native Hawaiians Go to War with Wind Industry to Save Threatened Bat Species

Native Hawaiians, furious at the wind industry’s rampant bat slaughter, have gone to war to prevent another environmental nightmare from destroying their beloved bats and sacred homeland. So far, over 130 of them have been arrested for doing no more than taking a real interest in their environment. What’s at stake is the survival of […]

Irish Government Slammed with €5m Fine Over Wind Farm’s Environmental Disaster

Getting into bed with wind developers is never going to end well. For its troubles, the Irish government has just been whacked with a €5m fine for failing to enforce its own environmental standards at a wind farm near Derrybrien, County Galway. During construction, the developer managed to wipeout half a mountain, sending a sea […]

Landscapes Lost: Endless Sea of Mega-Wind Turbines Destroying Rural Vistas Around The World

  Treasured rural landscapes are being trashed around the globe with a visual cacophony of 200-270m wind turbines, with their 60m blades slicing and dicing any critter fool enough to fly by, and driving neighbours nuts with their incessant, thumping and grinding low-frequency noise. All in the name of ‘saving the planet’, mind you. Across […]
