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

We have a new 90th Parallel Productions documentary airing on CBC Doc Zone, February 7 at 9:00 pm in Canada. We spent two years making this film about wind turbines and how they can make people sick. A lot of people are skeptical–so was I.

When you’re driving north on the B Line from Kincardine to Inverhuron you can see a skyline of red lights flashing against the night sky. This is farmland; hundred acre family… Continue reading

Here is a news report out of Ontario, Canada regarding the plight of victims suffering from industrial wind turbines too close to their homes. This story repeats itself all over the world, from Maine to Australia and everywhere else.

 

The link below is to a video of Ted Whitworth from Amaranth Township, Ontario. Ted’s family has been devastated by a turbine project, specifically the transformer station, that started up years ago. They have followed every protocol and have contacted every authority possible. The problems are punted between various Ontario ministries and agencies but no one has accepted responsibility nor offered any tangible help. Ted and his family are not alone.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mx9o6EiSU54 FYI. This video… Continue reading

The Government appeared in disarray over its wind farm policy last night after the Energy Minister and the Prime Minister clashed over the development of new turbines.

Conservative Energy Minister John Hayes said it was “extraordinary” that wind turbines had been allowed “to be peppered around the country without due regard for the interests of the local community or their wishes”.

But his words earned a public rebuke from his boss, Lib Dem… Continue reading

The Michaud family of Thamesville claims they have suffered vertigo, nausea and sleep disruption caused by the Kent Breeze wind farm.

The wind farm, which began operating in May 2011, consists of eight turbines, the closest of which is 1,146 metres from the Michaud’s property.
