New Study Finds That Wind Turbines Could Have Impact On Insect Populations, Food Chain

German DLR model computations show each year 1.2 trillion insects are killed by wind turbine rotors in Germany alone. Wind energy shows there is no free lunch. Some major drawbacks of this “green energy” supply include blighting of the landscape, health damage from infrasound, and bird killing. Now insect killing is another that is currently […]

Crete Is Home To 1000 Endangered Griffon Vultures. Wind Turbines Are Projected To Kill 84 Of Them Per Year.

Crete Is Home To 1000 Endangered Griffon Vultures. Wind Turbines Are Projected To Kill 84 Of Them Per Year.

A potential wind turbine installation on the island of Crete may be poised to drive an endangered raptor population to extinction. Recent studies have found the favored “renewable” energies – wind and solar – are not effective, even counteractive, when it comes to reducing emissions from fossil fuels. Solar PV installation, for example, results in […]

Winds Of Change? 10 New Papers Document The Evident Harm Wind Turbines Afflict On Humanity

In the scientific literature, wind energy’s effects on human populations has increasingly garnered an ignominious reputation in recent years.  For example, wind energy is claimed to (1) lead to “genocide” and “green grabbing”, (2) harm human health and well-being, and (3) lower home property values. Image Source: Tonin, 2017 Wind energy “green-grabbing” leading to “genocide”, […]

Germany’s Wind Energy Mess: As Subsidies Expire, Thousands Of Turbines To Shut Down…Environmental Nightmare!

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 […]

Wind Energy’s 8 Serious Disadvantages: Hurts Everything From Wealth To Health

What follows is a list of reasons compiled by this German site here on why wind is a poor source of power. There are eight disadvantages that cannot be ignored, the site writes. What follows are the eight reasons along with my own descriptions. 1. Unstable, erratic power supply The wind doesn’t blow constantly, and […]

2 New Papers Expose The Environmental Nightmare Of Wind Turbine Blade Disposal

2 New Papers Expose The Environmental Nightmare Of Wind Turbine Blade Disposal

Unsustainable: 43 Million Tonnes Of Wind Turbine Blade Waste By 2050 “If the industry cannot come up with more sustainable manufacturing and disposal processes, public acceptance of wind energy would decline if the public becomes aware of these issues” – Ramirez-Tejeda et al., 2017 Despite an explosion in installed wind capacity since 1990, wind power […]

Resurging German Free Democrats Coming Out Against Out-Of-Control Wind Energy

Over the past few years Germans have been increasing their protests against the construction of wind trubines in the countryside and the idustrial littering of the landscape. Hundreds of citizens’ protest groups have since formed with the aim of fiercely opposing the construction of wind parks in forests, open landscapes and near residential areas. The […]

“Experts” Sent In To Convince Public Of Wind Park Safety Met By Derision And “Jeering Laughter”

As wind projects continue to get planned throughout Germany, concerns over their effects on nature, wildlife and human health are growing more than ever. The online Sächsische Zeitung (SZ – Saxony News) reports how one locality in Germany held a public forum on the subject of low-frequency infrasound earlier this year. Infrasound generated by wind turbines is […]

Wind Turbines Crashing Down In Germany Amid Brisk Opposition And Even Sabotage!

Wind turbines are ugly, litter the landscape, endanger wildlife, generate erratically, destabilize power grids and even cause health problems. They also have a habit of coming apart and self destructing — thus creating a hazard to persons and property. The Saxony online daily Sächsische Zeitung (SZ) here reports how a wind turbine collapsed near Leisnig just days ago. […]

Irish Fury And Fierce European Opposition To Ugly Wind Turbines Mount Across Europe

Here at this blog I’ve written often over Germany’s wind energy follies and the mounting opposition to the construction of wind parks. In fact over 300 citizens initiatives against wind energy have sprouted across Germany alone so far. The reasons for the exploding resistance are many and include destruction of forests, death to wildlife, blighting […]

Analysis: Adding More Solar, Wind Power Increases Dependence On Fossil Fuels, 'Doubles' CO2 Emissions

Analysis: Adding More Solar, Wind Power Increases Dependence On Fossil Fuels, ‘Doubles’ CO2 Emissions

As the reputed world leader in green energy policy, Germany plans to eliminate nuclear power as an energy source in the next 5 years. A 2011 decision to phase out nuclear power by 2022  has meant that renewables like wind and solar power are expected to swiftly take the place of nuclear energy on the German power […]
