German City Of Aachen Cuts Down Over 600 Acres Of Natural Forest To Install Seven 200-Meter Tall Wind Turbines!

What follows is an example of how German decisionmakers go about protecting the environment: chop down hundreds of acres of forests and pour thousands of tons on concrete reinforced with hundreds of tons of steel on huge beds of gravel, all hauled in by hundreds of truck loads. Then install skyscraper tall industrial bird-killing monstrosities.

Result: an idyllic forest gets turned into an industrial complex that can be seen and felt from miles away – in order to protect the climate.

It would be a gruesome task to calculate the environmental and CO2 budget for the following described wind park project in the Münsterwald forest near the western Germany city of Aachen.

When finished it will consist of seven 200-meter tall turbines in what once was a natural, forested area and undisturbed biotope.

To get to the site, a “gigantic” swatch of forest had to be cut through the heart of the forest. According to the ZDF public television report (see below), “alone here 1000 trees had to be cut down.

Largescale deforestation

And according top Rainer Hülsheger of the state association for natural landscape protection: “At least 12,000 square meters of forest needed to be cleared in order to build one wind turbine alone.”

Angry environmentalists say that the forest simply was never even suitable for a wind park to begin with. Yet, the ZDF reports how the forest belongs to the city, and so the revenue-generating project got the green light.

Threat to endangered species

The ZDF report shows the sheer insanity that it takes to install wind turbines in the middle of forests, and how they endanger rare bird species such as the black storch and red kite.

Entire biotope severely damaged

For the wind project in Euskirchen, according to the ZDF (2:35), “The planned 24 wind turbines in the co called Kammerwald cut through an entire biotope system from Rheinland towards Belgium.”

Forest is the best place, says Aachen city offical

Why are the turbines being installed in the forests? According to Aachen city official Elmar Wiezorek, placing the turbines in fields posed an even greater environmental hazard: “The forest had the least problems.”

But Herbert Klinkenberg of a citizens initiative protecting the wind projects calls it all “a catastrophe”. ZDF sums it up: “Climate protection at the expense of nature.”

    Green stupidity really knows no limits.. unbelievable…
    Bring them to justice!

    Did they send the resulting timber to the Drax power station?

    Introduce these city officials to Ronan and Michael Connolly by showing them this video. ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XfRBr7PEawY ) and let them learn that human generated CO2 has no effect on atmospheric temperature. Then ask them if they might have opted to keep the forest intact if they had seen the video before they chose to cut it down .

    We must destroy the environment in order to save it.

    AfD is going to have to step upto stop Green Insanity the way they did with the refugee crisis.

    Germans also bulldoze medieval villages…to mine brown coal. They need to provide reliable backup when the wind isn’t blowing and the Sun isn’t shining, or when they’re not burning trees (called “biomass”) to stay warm.

    Germany is a Green leader.

    “Centuries-old villages across the country are being bulldozed to make way to mine brown coal — one of the filthiest and cheapest fossil fuels.”

    “The latest rural idyll threatened with destruction is the medieval village of Pödelwitz, in the eastern state of Saxony. Its quaint timber-framed houses stand empty and only 27 out of 200 villagers remain because mining company MIBRAG wants to dig up the coal that lies beneath.”

      Oh, but Kenneth. Think of all the benefits. //SARC//

      Warmists are parasites.

    The Climagisterium is worried that people are starting to discover how CO2 enrichment is making more trees and plants 🌱 grow worldwide.
    On one hand they successfully control the media and hide this fact with a wall of misinformation.
    But if that doesn’t work, then they can just cut down those extra trees themselves.
    Don’t be surprised if in a few months time, the loss of trees felled for the wind turbines, is blamed on global warming – and CO2.

    1. Yonason

      Hadn’t thought of that, but it’s totally consistent with the other lies they tell. Thanks for that.

      Yes, but my best is that this was plain, old-fashioned greed.

      “Angry environmentalists say that the forest simply was never even suitable for a wind park to begin with. Yet, the ZDF reports how the forest belongs to the city, and so the revenue-generating project got the green light.”

    “Forest is the best place”

    Oh really? Air moving over a forest will be disturbed compared to that over fields and open ground, so the turbine will be less efficient as a a result. It will also need to be on a taller tower simply to get the lower blade tips the same distance above the treetops as they would otherwise have been in a field…

    1. Yonason

      Out of sight, out of mind. Not doing any good anyway, so why draw any more attention to that than necessary? Yup. Warmists are totally out of their minds.
