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

The most basic law of economics is that things are valued based on the “Law of Supply and Demand.” It is exceedingly obvious, all things being equal, that many people (due to view, sound, flicker, etc) would choose NOT to buy a home where there are wind turbines close by. (Whether they are right or wrong in their reasons is irrelevant.)

These beliefs would reduce demand, which clearly would have some negative impact on the price of such… Continue reading

Opinions about wind turbines – and their effect on property prices – are a relatively new phenomenon in Ontario (since 2005). Most people have an opinion regarding wind turbines and their effect on themselves, their surroundings, and society. The main concerns are the safety and health impacts of wind turbines.

If a wind turbine were erected on a property, would the neighbouring properties have the same market value… Continue reading

Yesterday Duncan jumps ship, then Bartolucci and today Bentley pulls the plug!

What could all this mean?………………….could it be that now that Ontario has been successfully castrated by the Green Energy Act that these foul miscreants have completed their “end game” of bringing Ontario to a Third World status as they were intent on doing?

It’s a widely held conception that Denmark is one of the world’s least corrupt countries. The message is always warmly received, but this isn’t the same as saying that Denmark is free of corruption.

I’m not qualified to speak about corruption in general, but there is one area in which I do have an in-depth knowledge: wind power, which is an industry that has managed… Continue reading

The shocking environmental cost of renewable energy

Wind turbines only last for ‘half as long as previously thought’, according to a new study. But even in their short lifespans, those turbines can do a lot of damage. Wind farms are devastating populations of rare birds and bats across the world, driving some to the point of extinction. Most environmentalists just don’t want to know. Because they’re so desperate to believe in renewable energy,… Continue reading

In a ground breaking study from Wisconsin, new evidence on LFN and infrasound.

Supporters can no longer say that wind turbines do not produce significant levels of infra and low frequency sound just because the sound pressure levels do not rise to the Thresholds of perception of audible sounds.

Thus, “What you can’t hear, can hurt you” is the surviving paradigm.

The argument about whether wind turbines produce infra and low frequency sound and if they… Continue reading

WHAT WE KNOW ABOUT WIND TURBINES common sense stuff

– Up to 600 feet tall – constant noise – shadow/flicker – view shed effect – turbines tower over horizon, changing the view – construction; transmission lines; substations – turbines forever change the aesthetics; a more industrial feeling – loss of native wildlife habitat
