Atomic Reaction: Australia’s Renewable Energy Debacle Prompts Push for Nuclear Power

  If CO2 gas really is the existential threat it’s made out to be, then nuclear power is the only solution. That’s if you want to provide reliable and affordable electricity to all comers, rather than destroying businesses and punishing households? In 2018, with debacles like wind ‘powered’ Germany, South Australia and Victoria on show, for […]

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.

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.

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 […]

Splattered: 160 Tonne Wind Turbine Implodes Without Warning in Ontario & Becomes Instant Tourist Attraction

As insanely dangerous as they are utterly useless, when they’re not throwing their blades to the four winds, industrial wind turbines just keep on collapsing. With the biggest weighing in at over 300 tonnes, every time gravity does her worst, the risk of chaos and carnage follows: 290 Tonne Vestas Wind Turbines Dropping Like Giant Wounded Flies […]

Hateful Eight: 8 Solid Reasons Why Subsidised Wind Power is Both Pointless & Harmful to Health & Wealth

If wind power was a horse, its owner would have shot it long ago. Instead, cheered on by ideological zealots and endlessly pumped up with performance enhancing subsidies it continues to lumber on regardless. Impossibly chaotic in its delivery, it never starts the race on time and continually fails to finish, even when it manages […]

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 […]
