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.”

Stray voltage (also known as “tingle” voltage) is any voltage that appears in metal work, stanchions, pipes, conduits, etc. It is usually caused by current trying to get back to the transformer by the easiest route. Stray voltage can cause discomfort to farm animals; for example, if a cow touches a metal feeder that is charged with stray voltage, it gives her a shock as the current passes through her body.
Most farm animals react to voltages too low for humans to notice. They may lap at water rather than drink normally or leave a layer of feed in a steel trough. They sometimes hesitate or refuse to enter areas where they previously felt shocks (stall hardware, for example) while standing on wet concrete. When confined, they may jump, defecate and kick, creating problems for handlers.
