New Green Deal Turns Sour: Counting Colossal Environmental Cost of Wind & Solar Obsession

  The true environmental and social cost of intermittent wind and solar is simply staggering. Millions of solar panels are already being dumped in landfill, and millions of nonrecyclable wind turbine blades are joining them; altogether creating a toxic legacy the generation who blindly championed so-called ‘green’ energy. A few posts back we carried a […]

What’s Under the Hood: The Dirty Secrets Of ‘Clean’ Electric Vehicles

  In their sillier moments, wind and solar advocates claim that we’ll all soon be driving electric vehicles, lovingly recharged with sunshine and breezes. In Australia, those seemingly virtuous souls with EVs are really being propelled by coal, because 85% of the electricity passing through its Eastern grid comes from coal-fired plants. It’s an irony, […]

Filthy ‘Green’ Future: The Dark & Toxic Side of Wind & Solar Power

  There’s nothing ‘clean’ or ‘green’ about wind and solar power and anyone telling you otherwise is either an idiot, or they’re in on it. The faux environmentalist is easy to spot: he loves industrial wind power and couldn’t care less about the environmental destruction it causes. Faced with the rampant slaughter of birds and […]

Toxic Truth: Millions Of Solar Panels & Wind Turbine Blades Destined For Landfills

The so-called wind and solar ‘industries’ are barely out of nappies, and yet they’re already responsible for a smorgasbord of toxic waste. The magnets in wind turbine generators are made from neodymium and dysprosium, rare earth minerals mined almost exclusively in China, which controls 95 percent of the world’s supply of rare earth minerals. The […]

Wind Industry Myths Busted: Twenty-Five Reasons Why Intermittent Wind Power Fails

Wind power is a monumental failure: not just costly and chaotic, the claim that it amounts to a meaningful power source is pure nonsense. Notorious examples like South Australia, prove the point: this is the state that set and met its own 50% renewable energy target, became renowned as the wind power capital of Australia, […]

‘Green’ Energy’s Double Standards: Real Environmental Cost of Wind & Solar an Inconvenient Truth

Paul Driessen is senior policy analyst for the Committee For A Constructive Tomorrow (www.CFACT.org), and author of Eco-Imperialism: Green power – Black death and other books on the environment. Here’s Paul unpacking the myth that wind and solar are both clean and green. Fair trade for thee, but not for me Watts up With That Paul Driessen […]

Wind Industry’s Dirty Little Secret: Turbines to Generate 40 Million Tonnes of Toxic Waste

Environmentalists of the kind lovingly called ‘tree huggers’ (rather than wind turbine worshippers) are finally cottoning on to the fact that the wind industry is anything but the ‘clean, green’ energy source its proponents claim it to be. In this piece, Emily Wade makes her indignation palpable; it’s almost as if she’s been played for […]

The True & Staggering Environmental Cost of Wind & Solar Power: Unsustainable Energy Defined

  For the uninitiated, the sight of snow white wind turbines flailing in the breeze in some green field reinforces that feel-good notion that wind power is the crème de la crème of ‘green energy’. For those in the know, whenever the term ‘green energy’ is trotted out by some starry-eyed hipster or sandal wearing […]

How Green Hypocrites Use Energy Illiteracy to Prey on the Gullible and Naive

In Australia, at least, education has been reduced to helping our little darlings understand why they feel the way they do. The hard graft of maths and science has given way to gender theory. Little wonder that the current generation have no idea how energy is produced, how much is consumed and who or what […]
