Planet Strippers: Amazon’s Balsa Forests Being Raped To Make Wind Turbine Blades

Stripping the Amazon basin’s forests of balsa to make wind turbine blade is all part of our ‘inevitable’ transition. So is turning rural China into a toxic industrial wasteland (see above). Giant industrial wind turbines comprise hundreds of tonnes of steel, aluminium, plastics, copper and rare earths used in the generator’s magnets. There is also […]

‘Greens’ Destroying Germany’s Ancient Forests To Make Way For Industrial Wind Turbines

To make way for over 30,000 of these things, the German wind industry has ruthlessly clear-felled ancient forests, once considered out of bounds. Provided the wilderness being turned into smouldering ash is used as a platform for hundreds of 260m high/300 tonne industrial juggernauts, it’s all for the greater good. Trashing thousand-year-old oak trees and […]

Billions of Wind Turbine Blades Built With Balsa Wood Stripped From Amazon’s Forests

Green groups are starting to rumble the fact that wind power ain’t so green, after all. Giant industrial wind turbines comprise hundreds of tonnes of steel, aluminium, plastics, copper and rare earths used in the generator’s magnets. There is also at least a tonne of gear oil and hydraulic fluid on board. And then there’s […]

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, […]
