Earlier this year in Ljubljana, Slovenia, acoustics and health expert Dr. Mariana Alves Pereira explained the impacts low frequency infrasound can have on health. It’s far from pretty. Infrasound is very low frequency (<20 Hz) and is below the threshold of human hearing. It is sensed by the human ear only as pressure waves. Hat tip: […]
The Rotors Of Sickness… Wind Energy Proponents Refuse To Acknowledge Proven Wind Turbine Health Hazards
By P Gosselin on 4. November 2018
A report on infrasound (low frequency sound below 20 Hz) by German public television ZDF here further reveals how infrasound from wind turbines causes widespread health issues, despite claims by “experts” that these illnesses are “in peoples’ heads” and not really real. The dubious argument that “if you can’t hear it, then it can’t hurt […]

German wind energy opposition organization Vernunftkraft here posted some charts at Facebook showing just how abominably inadequate wind as a source of power really is. “Power collapses within minutes” The following chart shows the performance of wind energy for 15 European countries (shaded dark blue) and that of Germany (light blue) for the period May, 2018: Source: […]
“Heart-Jamming” Wind Turbines …New Medical Research Confirms Infrasound Negatively Impacts Heart Health!

While German activists are growing hysterical over fine particle emissions from today’s relatively cleaner diesel automobiles, the German Allgemeine Zeitung here reports that researchers have determined that low-frequency infrasound from wind turbines indeed do have a negative impact on the human heart. Infrasound from wind turbines can affect heart health, new findings show. Image: DrJanaOfficial – CC […]

As Germany moves to phase out coal power, more focus is being placed on relying on wind energy to fill in the gap. Recently German business daily Handelsblatt here reported that despite the country adding more wind energy capacity, “the latest figures show that only a little wind power is available at any time.” According […]

Contending that “the current situation is particularly worrying”, authors of a troubling new paper assert that the bat habitat loss fomented by the presence of wind turbines is so pervasive that bat activity continues to decline precipitously from a range of “at least 1000 meters from a wind turbine”.

Germany’s “Ticking Time Bombs”…Technical Experts Say Wind Turbines Posing “Significant Danger” To Environment!
By P Gosselin on 22. June 2018
As much of Germany’s nearly 30,000 strong fleet of wind turbines approach 20 or more years in age, the list of catastrophic collapses is growing more rapidly. The turbines are now being viewed by technical experts as “ticking time bombs”. Wind turbine recently burned after being hit by lightning. Image: Wasili Karbe, cropped from video here. […]

⇑ Wind Power Installation Amplifies The Growth Of Fossil Fuel Energies “[A]s RES [renewable energy sources] increases, the expected decreasing tendency in the installed capacity of electricity generation from fossil fuels has not been found.” – Marques et al., 2018 In late 2012, a prophetic article appeared in the Los Angeles Times that warned: “As more […]
Germany’s Wind Energy Mess: As Subsidies Expire, Thousands Of Turbines To Shut Down…Environmental Nightmare!
By P Gosselin on 24. April 2018
As older turbines see subsidies expire, thousands are expected to be taken offline due to lack of profitability. Green nightmare: Wind park operators eye shipping thousands of tons of wind turbine litter to third world countries – and leaving their concrete rubbish in the ground. The Swiss national daily Baseler Zeitung here recently reported how Germany’s wind […]

More Wind Turbines, More Habitat Harm, Loss Scientists (Krekel and Zerrahn, 2017 ) report that the installation of wind turbines near human populations “exerts significant negative external effects on residential well-being” and a “significant negative and sizable effect on life satisfaction” due to “unpleasant noise emissions” and “negative impacts on landscape aesthetics”. “We show that the […]
Wind’s False Promise Of Environmental Purity…Everywhere “Everything Is Rotating And Blinking”…”High Price To Pay”
By P Gosselin on 13. March 2018
Public opinion of wind energy in Germany, once unanimously high, has eroded considerably over the past years as more people begin to realize that the country’s once idyllic countryside is turning into a blighted industrial landscape. The earlier visions of environmental purity are instead turning out to be illusions by con-artists. The reality is an […]

Conservationist/wind-energy protest group Rettet den Odenwald (Save the Forest of Odes) here writes that yet another endangered stork nest was recently destroyed at the forested location near a proposed JuWi wind park. Controversy swirls over German wind park builder JuWi Normally the clearing of forest land to make way for industry is required to undergo […]
