The central, endlessly repeated lie (upon which the great wind power fraud rests) is that increasing wind power generation results in decreases in CO2 emissions. In Australia, the central object of the Renewable Energy (Electricity) Act 2000 is for "renewable" energy to "reduce emissions of greenhouse gases in the electricity sector" (see s3). But, somewhere … Continue reading Why Intermittent Wind Power Increases CO2 Emissions in the Electricity Sector

How Much CO2 Gets Emitted to Build a Wind Turbine?
The ONLY justification for wind power – the massive subsidies upon which it entirely depends (see our post here); spiralling power prices (see our post here); and the suffering caused to neighbours by incessant low-frequency noise and infrasound (see our post here) - is the claim that it reduces CO2 emissions in the electricity sector. … Continue reading How Much CO2 Gets Emitted to Build a Wind Turbine?
