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.”

For the Holdings, this turned out to be an… Continue reading

Sue Price, who can see and hear the turbine from her home in Whites Lane, claims she has all but given up trying to sell it after her estate agent told her the price had to drop to compensate for the effect of the wind turbine.

Mrs Price, 62, who has lived… Continue reading

“….And there’s no direct evidence that they affect house prices, in fact the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors says they don’t….”

This is a quote – a genuine quote: not one devised by his enemies to satirise the outrageous absurdity of the wind industry’s specious claims – from Maf Smith, Deputy Chief of the wind industry propaganda arm… Continue reading
