Industrialised Landscapes & Battered Communities Drive German Backlash Against Big Wind

Germany’s wind power obsession has turned picture postcard landscapes into alien, industrial war zones – of the kind dreamt up by futurist HG Wells. In the beginning, carpetbaggers, rent seekers and their eco-zealot, shock troops sold the ‘transition’ to an all wind and sun powered future as an ecological idyll. Except, the reality has fallen […]

Mass Blade Fail Means Early ‘Retirement’ for Hundreds of Danish Wind Turbines

  Among the lies pedalled by the wind industry is that wind turbines run on the smell of an oily rag and last for more than 25 years.

Wind Farm Mass Attack: Wind Turbines Collapsing & Combusting Around the World

*** The number of cases involving turbines collapsing, self immolating or throwing their blades to the four winds (aka “component liberation”) has become so common that, if we were a tad cynical, we would go so far to suggest the possibility of some kind of pattern, along the lines proffered by Mr Bond’s nemesis, Goldfinger: […]

Mortal Danger: Wind Turbines Throw Blades, Disintegrate & Collapse with Alarming Regularity

More turbine mayhem, this time it’s Siemens turbines – less than 4 years old – collapsing on Maui – an island in the Hawaiian archipelago. Parts fall off wind turbine The Maui News Lee Imada 4 October 2016 The blades, hub and nacelle of one of eight Auwahi Wind turbines in the Kanaio area separated from […]
