Baden-Württemberg Government Announces Plans To Clear Cut State Forest, Build 1000 Turbines

Dystopian nature protection….500 wind turbines in state forests, millions of tons of concrete and steel…deforestation, permanently destroyed biotopes.

A large part of southwestern Germany’s idyllic natural landscape is about to be industrialized by 1000 “environmentally friendly” wind turbines.

How wind power endangers Germany’s nature and the health of its citizens

By Werner Köppen

(Translated, subheadings by P. Gosselin) 

“State wants to build 500 new wind turbines in the state forest,” was the headline in the Badische Zeitung on July 26 over the decision by Germany’s Baden-Württemberg state government. This decision is the first step by the state coalition government of The Greens and CDU to build 1000 wind turbines in the next legislative period.

The news came only a few days after the flood disaster in North Rhine Westphalia and Rhineland-Palatinate, where it was quite obvious that a lack of flood plains was the main cause of the floods. Now policymakers have decided to destroy even more valuable forest areas and to seal the deforested ground with tens of thousands of tons of concrete.

Permanently disfigured landscape

Each wind turbine means the clear-cutting of 0.35 km2 of forest, lost CO2 and moisture reservoirs, all to be sealed by 3500 tons of concrete each for each turbine. To date, such concrete blocks have never been removed, insurmountable obstacles to deep-rooted trees and natural water control.

Moreover, two other negative impacts have been ignored by the press so far. First, scientific research that shows wind turbines slow down the wind and cause temperature increases locally, two effects that dry out the soil.


Even more serious is the health risk, and it is incomprehensible that in an environmentally and health-conscious country like Germany, medical warnings about infrasound from wind turbines are not discussed in detail, and are even systematically downplayed.

Slipshod health impact assessments

According to the current state of knowledge, the approval of wind turbines is done according to inappropriate regulations and standards, i.e. infrasound is wrongly evaluated. The medical reactions of desperate residents near wind farms, who seek protection from the agonizing sound waves, are dismissed as imaginary illnesses. Some are left with the sole option of abandoning their own homes. Yet, medical experts have been warning for some time about the harmful effects of infrasound on blood vessels and brain functions.


Currently, the global temperature increase since 1979 has been about 0.15 °C per decade (see Vahrenholt, Lüning: Unwanted Truths), the world is far from the 4 to 6 °C by 2100 predicted in the first scare stories about climate change. Moreover, according to current science, carbon dioxide is not the main driver of global warming. But scientific technical debate has become secondary today. In the group of the so-called “climate protectors” there is no willingness to question their thesis of man-made climate change.

Under these conditions, it is irresponsible to turn our country, Germany, into an industrial landscape and, moreover, to sacrifice our health and prosperity.

Overriding Ministry of Climate Protection

Just a few days ago, the Green Party has presented its so-called climate protection emergency program, which would grant a climate protection ministry a veto right against all present laws that are not Paris-compliant. Thus, a radical eco-socialist system would be imposed on Germany, with a 2.5% share of global CO2 emissions, in a rush.

On this subject, my website compiles the scientific evidence, mutatis mutandis.

    This is just insane, but the insanity continues in the West. In the East and the developing world, sane countries embrace affordable, reliable fossil fuels.

    The Herald reports In Scotland, 14 million CO2-absorbing trees were recently chopped down to make way for wind farms. This way the Scottish government can ironically claim they’re doing their part to reduce CO2 emissions.

    I wonder what they did with all that wood? Burnt it to make more CO2?

    We had to destroy the environment in order to save it.

    Seriously, what can be done to stop this from happening?

    A planned and engineered flood happened because the authorities would not allow water to escape from the dam. Even after days of rain. The rain was obviously geoengineered. It is not the scam ‘climate change’…it is man made geoengineering to make way for the cult of man made profit off DESTROYING the environment. Germans and all nations must fight this demon of ‘climate change’ because we absolutely NEED CO2 to live and survive. WE ARE CARBON! (How do archaeologists and researchers find out how old a thing is? By dating the CARBON!) The madness of man is destroying this planet unless we stop it. We can’t live without trees and environment…we are part of it. These liars need to be put on a leaky boat to no where and let it sink.

      While they are screaming climate change the likes of Blackrock CEO Larry Fink and his mafia are buying up/stealing all natural resources of every possible nation on earth. Now why would they do that!

    Whether it’s “climate change” or faux solutions to an otherwise manageable pandemic…
    …or faux solutions to a manufactured dietary crisis, whenever government offers you, and especially when they mandate their “help,” know that your life expectancy has just taken a major hit.
