Wind Turbines are supposed to save CO2Posted: January 22, 2016
And to think for every industrial wind turbine that is erected, a fossil fuel powered backup station needs to be built to provide reliable 24/7 baseload power when the wind don’t blow!
What an insane and devastating joke the entire ‘green’ energy revolution has become.
We will look back at this age of collective eco-insanity and wonder what on earth were we (they) thinking.
The energy required for a helicopter to de-ice all the blades on a wind farm must outweigh any supposed saving in CO² by a factor of 100 or more. Notwithstanding that no wind farm has saved a gram of CO² due to construction and the necessary spinning reserve.
HUMAN STUPIDITY KNOWS NO LIMITS
The entire rational for wind turbines is to stop global warming by reducing the amount of Co2 being returned to the atmosphere from the burning of fossil fuels.
In the attached picture, recently taken in Sweden, freezing cold weather has caused the rotor blades of a wind turbine to ice up bringing the blades to a complete stop.
To fix the “problem” a helicopter is employed (burning aviation fuel) to spray hot water (which is heated in the frigid temperatures using a truck equipped with a 260 kW oil burner) on the blades of the turbine…
