Very enlightening! Wind Turbines seem far worse for the environment than fossil fuels. But, there must be very profitable Wind Turbine industry that is making Elites very rich.
Very eye opening and truly sad. Thank. you for posting. How do we as human beings stop all of this insanity and bring nature, beautiful animals, and humanity back from these disasters and suffering?
Thank you for putting this together. This is truly disheartening and my first thought is where are the so called tree huggers, environmentalists, and nature conservancy organizations? But hey, if you can buy a politician, and buy a doctor, and buy a scientist I guess you can buy off all these other groups. Sad.
In North central Costa Rica there is a windmill installation. It is not a “farm”
It’s not appropriate to call it a farm. These windmills are incredibly loud. No one would want to live anywhere near these things for several miles in every direction. They interrupt the natural beauty of the landscape. They require maintenance and road access.
They might be appropriate for certain remote windy places. But otherwise they are ugly blights on the landscape
When construction projects are stopped due to disturbing a rare breed of door mouse or bat, why doesn’t the same rules apply to sea animals. It makes no sense.
Regarding pre-construction windfarm surveys: I work in the offshore survey industry and it's sometimes a requirement from the client (not Fugro which would be the subcontractor in the instance highlighted in the article), to "start equipment at low power and increase gradually in order to scare off marine life" .... turning the volume knob up gradually is a way to think of it. However this depends on the client's instructions as well as the type of underwater sensors used - some are more powerful than others and therefore more likely to have the potential for harm. Without knowing exactly what was used in this case it's hard to assess whether there was a chance of affecting whales, and some of the sensors mentioned would be almost certainly harmless, others would depend exactly how close marine life was to the survey vessel (Ps. surveys for oil and gas exploration are a different matter as they use higher power equipment in order to penetrate deeper into the geology, and quite often have 'spotters' onboard to look for dolphins, whales etc, and suspend operations when something is seen (or heard, if underwater listening equipment is utilised)
Truckers who haul those wind turbine blades use alot of fuel to transport....shhh don’t tell anyone. 🤫
A stunning indicment. Also in the UK they are going to tear up the countryside and forest to install the cables and infrastructure to connect the turbines to the grid.
Wind power is aces if done the traditional way: smaller mills where the mechanical energy is used directly. Say a derrick with a propeller, where the motion is transferred to something, like mill or a mangler or something like that.
Don't forget all the American Bald Eagles they've killed. While LEAKING OIL! If they are next to oil platforms they can blame the leaks on the oil companies.
An illuminating yet sobering piece, thanks. Sadly, I can only see climate cultists clinging onto their delusions with even more tenacity than Covidians clung to their masks; it simply constitutes far too fundamental a part of their self-image. After all, no matter how so-called "environmentalists" might gnash their teeth about the plight of the whales or the vanishing of the rainforests, a vast majority would willingly let the entirety of nature burn just so long as they their egos remained untouched.
99% of environmentalism is self-congratulation.
Amazing that the elites controlling the world seem to be inherently destructive. Wind turbines are a good example of this. In the USA, which has virtually unlimited natural gas which is very inexpensive and clean burning, why is its use not greatly increased? And why not build the safe small nuclear plants? We should be awash in safe clean energy with destructive wind turbines!
Thanks NE for the excellent and honest summary!
You’re right. It’s a transfer of wealth from American tax payers to the Wind Turbine investors.
Very infromative. Thanks for this!
"...the internal flow of energy is greater in an ancient forest than anywhere else on earth, and it is this high rate of "metabolism" which gives the great forests their powerful influence on the rest of the world. Bioenergetically, they can be compared to the brain of an animal: intense, stable, and essential to the existence of the whole." Ray Peat (from Generative Energy)
