Blaze of Glory: Life-Threatening Wind Turbine Fires Way More Common Than People Think

Wind turbine fires are ten times more common than the wind industry and its parasites claim (see our post here and check out this website: http://turbinesonfire.org). Americans have had more than their fair share of fiery ‘green’ energy excitement – see our posts here, here and here. The wind industry has been forced to concede that at least […]

Spontaneous Combustion: Wind Turbine Fires Way More Common Than Industry Claims

Efforts to portray wind turbines as ‘safe’, ‘clean’ and ‘green’ are undone by their reputation for spectacular pyrotechnic displays whenever they decide to self-immolate and turn themselves into terrifying, toxic fireballs. Around the world, hundreds have exploded into in palls of toxic smoke and balls of flame – in the process – each one raining […]

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 […]

Not So Safe: Spontaneous Wind Turbine Fires Pose Mortal Threat to Life & Property

STT has covered wind turbine fires dozens of times, including those which have sparked out-of-control bushfires, placing life at mortal risk. Contrary to their ‘super-safe’, ‘clean’, ‘green’ image, giant industrial wind turbines are the perfect incendiary device. Around the world, hundreds have exploded into in palls of smoke and balls of flame – in the […]

Clear & Present Danger: Industrial Wind Turbines Pose Permanent Wildfire Threat

Contrary to their ‘super-safe’, ‘clean’, ‘green’ image, giant industrial wind turbines are the perfect incendiary device.

Fired-Up: Industrial Wind Turbines Setting the World Alight, Alright!

Wind turbines are the perfect incendiary device: packed with flammable and toxic oils, plastics, fibreglass and low-ignition point metals, like aluminium, when one of these things spontaneously bursts into flames, everybody for miles around knows all about it. For those country folk nervous about the terror that comes with an out-of-control bushfire, here are a […]

Wind Turbines the Perfect Bushfire Starters: Fire & Fury Coming Soon to Your Backyard

As Australians brace for a searing summer, spare a thought for communities riddled with wind turbines: the perfect incendiary device.

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 […]

Japanese Pyro Saga: Wind Turbine Explodes in Fireball at Nuclear Power Plant

STT followers might have twigged to our sense of irony which, on the odd occasion, drifts all the way to sarcasm. Sometimes a wry line requires considered imagination. But, other times, this stuff literally writes itself. This saga from Saga in Japan is almost too funny for words. Anti-nuke scaremongers rave on about the purported […]
