Concrete Turbine Base

Un-Green Energy – Destroying the earth to “save” it …

Tsk tsk tsk

This is a turbine base for a 100m turbine, a relative minnow in modern parlance. Already a large quantity of concrete has been poured and now the steel work is in place for the cap to be added. This will require in excess of fifty lorries full of concrete. Cement is one of the worst elements created by man as regards carbon footprint and yet we are told by government and developers how green wind farms are because the wind is free. So is coal, gas, thorium or oil at source. It is the harvesting that costs money, as it does with wind. This base will never be removed but simply covered over at the end of the wind farms life. The damage to the eco system, water run off and the peat moorland that it displaces will remain for millenia. Modern techniques can reduce the half lifes of nuclear elements…

    “20 years is a wind turbine’s life span,
    What happens then? Is there a plan?
    Thousands of turbines will then need replacing,
    A new energy crisis we will be facing…..”
