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

Feature Article. The Danish Parliament favours the wind industry to a degree where the constitutional state is weakened. Ida Auken, Minister for the Environment, is so indifferent to facts that in a consultation she delivers 38 wrong answers, including the information that wind turbine noise does not disturb more than noise from any other source, and that the regulations are stricter for wind turbine noise than for any other noise.

By Peter Skeel Hjorth, journalist, Henrik Svanholm, Master of Laws (cand.jur.), and Peter Prinds, MD

Shortly after she took office as Minister for the Environment, Ida Auken signed two statutory orders, and The Statutory Order on High-Speed Ferries on December 15 and 21, respectively. The two statutory orders specify different sound insulation figures for Danish houses.
The sound insulation figures in the Statutory Order on High-Speed Ferries have not been changed for many years and are regarded by experts as by far the most correct. The figures in the Statutory Order on Wind Turbine Noise, however, are far too high. They imply that Danish houses are more soundproof than is the case. In real life you could therefore imagine that the authorities have to reject a high-speed ferry service due to too much noise in the neighbourhood and at the same time approve a wind turbine even though considerably more noise in the very same neighbourhood.

There is only one explanation for this discrimination: Preferential treatment of the wind industry.
