Far Out: German Study Finds Pulsing Wind Farm Infrasound 20 Kilometres From Turbines

Overrun by 30,000 or so giant industrial wind turbines, it’s no surprises that Germans know all about the misery of wind turbine noise. A component of the cacophony of low-frequency, amplitude modulated noise generated by these things occurs in frequencies meant to be below what humans can ordinarily hear. But that does not mean that […]

Bug’s Life: Bees & Other Flying Critters Being Wiped Out By Wind Turbines

Giant industrial wind turbines mean an ignominious slaughter for almost anything on the wing. 50-80m blades, with their tips travelling at over 300 km/h, readily slice and dice birds and bats in their millions every year. Then there’s a smorgasbord of smaller flying critters, like bees, wasps, dragonflies and other environmentally and agriculturally beneficial insects […]

Germans Rue Wave of ‘Green’ Destruction: Wind Turbines Driving Critters From Natural Habitats

  The wind industry is hypocrisy defined: merrily wrecking the environment under the auspices of ‘saving’ it. Slaughtering millions of birds and bats (and lying about it) is all in a day’s work. In Germany, its eco-zealots are having a harder time than usual, in their dogged efforts to cover up the inevitable environmental destruction […]

Regrets: Fritz Vahrenholt – German RE Pioneer Demands End to Chaotic Wind Power Push

  If the tech savvy Germans can’t make wind and solar power work, no one can. The Germans love cobbling together endless, guttural syllables to create nouns longer than the Autobahn. ‘Energiewende’ roughly translates as ‘energy transition’, which Germans have taken to mean a new path with energy. Germans were told that instead of coal […]

Germany’s ‘Green’ Dream Turns Nightmare: Merkel’s Plans for Wind Powered Future in Tatters

Dashed hopes and bitter disappointment seem all that’s left of Germany’s, hell-for-leather rush to renewables. STT keeps focusing on Germany (and South Australia) for obvious reasons: if you present yourself as a renewable energy ‘superpower’, expect your critics to have a field day when you fail. In Germany and South Australia their respective renewable energy […]

Renewables Fiasco: The Astronomical Cost of Germany’s ‘Green’ Energy Failure

Their collective reliance on the wind and/or sun for power places South Australia, Denmark and Germany at the top of the retail power price league table. Like South Australia, Germany’s grid is on the very brink of collapse. Power consumers (read ‘voters’) are furious and those in power appear powerless to undo the damage. Here’s […]

Germany’s ‘Transition’ Back to Coal: Renewable Energy Push Smacks Into Reality

  All lies and promises, wind and sun worshippers keep telling us that rocketing power prices and unstable grids are just minor ‘teething problems’ on our way to an inevitable ‘transition’ to a wonderful world run entirely on sunshine and breezes. On their worldview, it’s a matter of when, not if, modern economies end up […]
