Environmental Disaster: Wind Turbines Continually Catch Fire, Throw Blades & Collapse

California’s wind power proponents promised a clean, green future – instead, they’ve delivered a wholesale environmental disaster. In the desert surrounding Ocotillo, locals have been putting up with wind turbines self-immolating, throwing their blades in all directions, leaking and spraying oil and collapsing to the desert floor, for years now (see our post here). Here’s […]

Another One Bites the Dust: 200 Tonne Wind Turbines Continually Beaten By Gravity

Throwing their 12-20 tonne blades to the four winds, spontaneously combusting and collapsing in catastrophic fashion is what wind turbines do best; these things appear to be in a constant battle with gravity. Remember, this is the power source that promises a clean, ‘green’ future! And that rural communities just can’t wait have hundreds of these things […]

Death Dodgers: On How to Avoid Being Impaled by Flying Wind Turbine Blade Chunks

With thousands of these things being speared into the backyards of closely settled rural communities, the risk of death and serious injury, only increases. The wind industry (which really only got off the ground in the late 1990s and still generates a trifling amount of electricity) has clocked up around 220 fatalities, – see the helpful […]

Turbines Tumble: Another 230 Metre, 300 Tonne Whirling Wonder Bites the Dust

Remember, this is the power source that promises a clean, ‘green’ future! And that rural communities just can’t wait have hundreds of these things speared into their backyards. Except, of course, if those backyards belong to former Greens leaders, like Dr […]

Top Secret Turmoil: Wind Industry Covering Up Catastrophic 300 Tonne Wind Turbine Collapses

While massive subsidies fuel the wind industry, self-generated myth and polished propaganda just grease the wheels. For wind industry spin-kings, one pesky problem that won’t go away is the routine and catastrophic collapses of these 300 tonne whirling wonders. Over the last few years, there have been hundreds of ‘structural failures’ – where either 10-15 […]

Shredded: Wind Industry Safety Claims Shattered as Neighbours Face More Exploding Blades

Claims that 300 tonne turbines are safe as houses fall hollow with each self-immolation, total collapse and ‘component liberation’ event. This is an industry that’s killed around 190, so far. And, with events like the one laid out below, the ‘green’ energy death toll can only rise. Wind turbine heavily damaged in City of Kawartha […]

Wind Industry’s Dirty Rotten Scoundrels: Trade on Endless Lies, Bullying & Deceit

In order to worm their way into rural communities, wind industry goons employ a mix of varnished lies, deceit and old-school thuggery. Over the last decade, wind power outfits have been able to beguile the gullible and hoodwink the unsuspecting.  They usually start with a colossal lie and work up from there.  However, as soon […]

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 […]

*** Nightmare Of Wind Turbine Blade Disposal: 2 New Papers Expose The Environmental Nightmare Of Wind Turbine Blade Disposal No Tricks Zone Kenneth Richard 22 June 2017 “If the industry cannot come up with more sustainable manufacturing and disposal processes, public acceptance of wind energy would decline if the public becomes aware of these issues” […]

Trifecta of Wind Turbine Terror: Blades Snap, Flames Crackle Nacelles & Whole Turbines Drop

  Safety: Snap, Crackle, and Drop Master Resource Lisa Linowes 19 June  2017 Wind turbine safety had an ugly three weeks. During the late hours of May 31, a turbine blade at NextEra’s Breckinridge Center in Oklahoma (in-service since August 2015), broke off near its base and was thrown to the ground – snap.   Days later on […]
