THE straight up truth about “unreliable” (green) energy. Well worth 5 mins of your precious time.
“Despite the Danish wind industry’s efforts to downplay it, the resistance exhibited by Danes has spread with disastrous results for the likes of Vestas.
In a clearly unhelpful turn of events for the wind industry in Denmark (and elsewhere for that matter), the growing fury of wind farm neighbours has rattled local governments and forced them into action.”
The sad part is that the “save the planet” lobby with their schizophrenic, ideologically driven push for unrealiable-energy has cost taxpayers, namely the poor, literally trillions of dollars of their hard-earned money to see the light.
Andrew Bolt nailed it commenting: “These are fake scares creating huge damage. Once again, the scaremongering is more dangerous than the scare.”
Denmark is the home of the original eco-fascist profiteers – Vestas – the struggling turbine maker – run by by a band of crooks – once exhorted the world to “Act on (its parallel universe version of the) Facts”: paying $millions to the Australian Greens and Trotskyite fronts like Getup! & Co – pitching lies like the one about the noise from V112s being just like the noise from a fridge 500m away (see our post here).
Whacked with costly lawsuits from wind farm neighbours – in one case a court awarding Dkr 500,000 (A$93,439) in compensation for the substantial reduction in the value of the plaintiffs’ home, caused by incessant turbine noise – the wind industry did its best to collude with a then pliant government to extricate itself from further liability (see our post here).
The Danish wind industry then resorted to the wholesale destruction of…

And no wonder unrealiable-energy-obsessed Germany is reverting *back* to coal-fired power at record rates after its disastrous €Trillion “Energiewende” fail…
In Europe wind powered Denmark and Germany are vying for top spot on the insane power price ladder.
The world over, businesses and households are fast waking up to the fact that the wind industry line about wind power being ‘free’ and getting cheaper all the time is among the greatest lies ever told.
Sure, when the wind is blowing the Wind Gods don’t send a bill. However focusing on the cost of what it takes to get them turning, misses the fact that operations and maintenance costs on wind turbines approach $25 per MWh, with that figure increasing over time as gearboxes, generators, blades and bearings wear out or disintegrate.
The other, not so minor, cost that the wind industry tends to overlook, is having an equal amount of conventional, synchronous and dispatchable power generating capacity always available to cover those numerous occasions when the Wind Gods determine…

Right, Left, Centre, Conservative, Liberal or communist – I still can’t get my head around the fact that ANY human being can be intrinsically motivated by ideology over facts, data and reason in support of the wind experiment.
“Progressiveness is a sickness” has been thrown around a bit lately but surely hard data pertaining to blackouts, energy poverty and economic ruin must prove unequivocally that wind energy is a compete failure and surely MUST override stubborn “save the planet” ideology?!
In 2017, with examples like Germany, Ontario and South Australia on file, any political leader still pushing subsidised wind power on his or her people is either a certifiable lunatic or is in on it.
Andrew Cuomo, the Governor of New York State simply leaves that question begging with his move to throw $360 million of taxpayers’ money to the wind.
In New York, Wind And Solar Get Double Their Value In Subsidies
The Daily Caller
16 January 2017
New York state is paying 11 large wind and solar power projects two times more in subsidies than the projects actually generate in electricity.
New York Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced the $360 million in spending over the weekend, but didn’t reveal the precise amount of funding for each project. A good portion of the funding will go to the large company Invenergy’s 105.8 megawatt Number Three wind…

China setup their own small-scale wind and solar power generation purely to appease the West in a symbolic show of “Green” faith.
Where they are winning, big-time, is in the mass-manufacture of wind and solar applications, sold back to the climate change obsessed West.
And the power used to manufacture the 16th Century industrial windmills, ironically, coming from the very coal that the West has condemned, demonised and shipped-off to China so she can open a coal-fired power station every week!
Insanity on a bizarre level.
Great post STT….
Plenty of what Westerners know about the Middle Kingdom is more marvellous myth than solid fact. Fitting squarely within that category is the idea pedalled by wind worshippers that China is working at a furious pace to carpet itself with millions of these things.
In truth, instead of squandering billions on a technology that was abandoned around the time the rot set in for the Qing Dynasty in the 19th century, China has built a phenomenal capacity in hydro power; and is building nuclear and high-efficiency coal-fired plant in order to bring affordable and reliable power to the masses: at present, China is building a coal-fired plant every other day, with plans to export their electricity to power starved Germans.
Just like everywhere else, the wind industry in China overstated its case; claiming that its costs were far lower than those actually realised; and, conversely, claiming…

The crazed rush to “save the planet” from a non-problem, with unreliable and ungreen energy, administered by sanctimonious politicians and green carpet baggers out to boast who’s ‘greener’ than who, is now causing untold damage to people’s lives, destroying pristine environments and decimating avian life and their habitats.
Ahhh the sickening, yet wholly predictable, irony.
And to think for every industrial wind turbine that is erected, a (predominantly) fossil fuel powered backup station needs to be built in support 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 time of collective eco-insanity and wonder what on earth were we (they) thinking.
Health problems in Finland caused by infrasound from wind turbine
4 December 2015
Source: National Wind Watch
Author: Tuulivoima-kansalaisyhdistys ry
From the English press release:
Tuulivoima-kansalaisyhdistys (TV-KY) ry – the National Association of Citizens Against Giant Windmills – has recently released an extensive report on the infrasound emissions from wind turbines and their impact on people’s health.
The wind turbines being built in close proximity to residential areas in Finland are the biggest in Europe. Their rotating blades generate low frequency noise and infrasound, i.e. frequent and continuous air pressure pulses that can travel for very long distances.
Low frequency noise refers to frequencies between 20-200 Hz that are audible to the human ear, and infrasound refers to frequencies between 0.1-20 Hz that can’t be picked up by the human ear.
Wind power companies, as well as some researchers, have…
