Irony Alert: Weather Destroys Weather Dependent Power Source – Lightning Incinerating Wind Turbines

The wind industry and those that promote it look more ridiculous, by the day. An entirely weather dependent power source, abandoned a couple of centuries back for pretty obvious reasons, exhibits all the resilience of a snowflake in summer. The irony that some ordinary old meteorological phenomenon (wind, rain and lightning) can easily knock wind […]

Wind Turbines: Safe, Clean & Green? Yeah, Right …

The spontaneous combustion of 300 tonne wind turbines, showering the earth with a toxic cocktail of molten-fibreglass and flaming lubricants is one of those tricky PR problems for big wind. On every occasion that one of these whirling wonders burst into flames, locals are told them it’s a rare and unusual event, never likely to […]

Black Plague: Wind Turbine Construction Turning Ontario’s Water Supply to Toxic Sludge

It’s not just that the wind industry is destroying Ontario’s water supplies that peeves people, it’s that they continue to lie about it. Those searching for a universally hospitable and polite group of people, need look no further than Canadians, and the industrious rural folk of Ontario, are no exception. These are the farming communities […]

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 […]

Western Victoria’s Firestorm: Dodging Wind Turbines Biggest Battle for Airborne Firefighters

Not only do wind turbines act as the perfect bushfire-starters, their presence precludes the best and safest method of fire-fighting from controlling them: aerial water bombers won’t fly within cooee of these things – experienced pilots have declared that they won’t fly within 3km of a wind turbine, even without the country around them on […]

Deadly Cool: Wind Turbine Throws Ice Chunks Into US College

  Throwing 10 tonne blades hundreds of metres, and chunks thereof, for kilometres isn’t the limit of the wholly unnecessary risk created by giant wind turbines. No, in cooler climes, neighbours are trained in the art of dodging lethal flying chunks of ice, too. To the uninitiated, ‘ice throw’ (another wind industry euphemism) might sound […]

Even Mother Nature Hates Wind Power: Lightning Strike Destroys Turbine in Ireland

For a machine that’s said to lovingly harvest free-as-a-bird wind energy, the industrial wind turbine sure takes a beating from the weather. When Hurricane Maria visited Puerto Rico last year, she managed to splatter wind turbine blades all over the island, leaving residents completely powerless: Weather Dependent Wind Power: Leaves Hurricane Victims Powerless A typhoon […]
