If you shut up truth and bury it under the ground, it will but grow, and gather to itself such explosive power that the day it bursts through it will blow up everything in its way.

Ten years too late, it’s good riddance to wind farms – one of the most dangerous delusions of our age

Christopher Booker UK

"I have been following this (wind turbine) extraordinary story for ten years ever since, in 2002, I first began looking carefully at what really lay behind this deceptive obsession with the charms of wind power. It didn’t take me long, talking to experts and reading up on the technical facts, to see that the fashionable enthusiasm for wind energy was based on a colossal illusion. I first warned about what I called ‘the greatest mistake in our history’ in an article in the Mail almost ten years ago.
I described the claim that it would be the answer to all our future energy problems as a catastrophic failure of judgment. I feared that windpower was stupendously inefficient and ludicrously expensive and that by falling for the greatest energy hoax of our time, the Labour government could be consigning Britain to a very dark future. So unreliable are wind turbines — thanks to the wind’s constant vagaries — that they are one of the most inefficient means of producing electricity ever devised."


"The erection of a wind turbine creates apprehension in the general public, which makes the property less desirable and thus diminishes the prices of neighbouring property...” “Continuing scientific uncertainty over the adverse health consequences of wind turbines only serves to perpetuate the debilitating effect of wind turbines on property prices.”
Ben Lansink, Appraiser

WEST GREY – An external lawyer working for NextEra Energy told West Grey council Monday evening during question period that imposing large fees for bonds associated with the construction of wind turbines is, in his opinion, unlawful.
West Grey was served a letter on Friday describing lawyer Justin Necpal’s argument against a bylaw passed Monday evening outlining amendments to include fees associated with the construction of wind turbines.
Councillors John Eccles and Don Marshall were the only councillors that voted against the bylaw.
“This is, respectively, unlawful for three reasons,” said Necpal.
He explained the bylaw conflicts with “provincial regulatory regimes for the development of green energy and renewable energy projects  in Ontario.”
Necpal said the Green Energy Act, passed by the province in 2009, has the “predominate purpose” of promoting renewable energy sources and green energy. He added that the Ministry of Environment is the sole authority for approving green energy projects in Ontario.
