Hundreds of thousands of wind turbine blades have already found their way into landfill, with millions more to follow. Bear in mind the wind industry has been with us for barely 20 years and most of the increase in (occasional) generating capacity has occurred in the last decade. And yet, thousands of blades are being … Continue reading Blade-Runners: Wind Industry Illegally Dumping Discarded Turbine Blades Across America

Wind & Solar ‘Transition’ Means Mountains of Toxic Rubbish Dumped in Local Landfills
The millions of solar panels headed for landfill are a veritable toxic cocktail of gallium arsenide, tellurium, silver, crystalline silicon, lead, cadmium, and heavy earth material. Then there’s the landfill legacy being created by wind turbine blades, with the First World cynically using the Third World as its dumping ground: ‘Green’ Energy’s Poisonous Legacy: Millions of Toxic Turbine … Continue reading Wind & Solar ‘Transition’ Means Mountains of Toxic Rubbish Dumped in Local Landfills
Renewable Energy Rubbish: Who Pays to Clean Up ‘Green’ Energy’s Colossal Mess?
Wind turbines and solar panels produce rubbish energy and, after a decade or so, they’re simply rubbish. Where wind and solar lack constancy in their ability to produce power as and when we need it, they make up for it in their ability to produce a constant stream of toxic waste. Here’s one from the … Continue reading Renewable Energy Rubbish: Who Pays to Clean Up ‘Green’ Energy’s Colossal Mess?
Toxic Truth: Millions Of Solar Panels & Wind Turbine Blades Destined For Landfills
The so-called wind and solar ‘industries’ are barely out of nappies, and yet they’re already responsible for a smorgasbord of toxic waste. The magnets in wind turbine generators are made from neodymium and dysprosium, rare earth minerals mined almost exclusively in China, which controls 95 percent of the world’s supply of rare earth minerals. The … Continue reading Toxic Truth: Millions Of Solar Panels & Wind Turbine Blades Destined For Landfills
