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

Wind turbine project defeated! 

This article has lots of great information on why the project went sideways and was defeated.

 

The town of Wellfleet Energy Commission in Massachusetts said they wanted to build a wind turbine to make money for the town and do their part for the environment. They said people wouldn’t see or hear  it.  So people trusted them and voted to support the project. But now the town’s people are learning about the size and scale. They are learning about the 3/4 mile long road from Whitecrest Beach(or Old County) that will be cut through the nationally significant Heath land and critical Pitch Pine and Scrub Oak Barrens  of the Cape Cod National Seashore to a cleared industrial area in the center of this previously unfragmented area, for a massive noisy 400 foot wind turbine. Join  us in telling the Wellfleet town government and the National Seashore that this giant tower should not be the first industrial wind turbine in any National Park.
