Britain’s Economic Nightmare Unfolds: Wind Power Costs Killing Thousands of REAL Jobs

STOP THESE THINGS

Bill Bill Shorten: the workers’ worst nightmare.

****

A few posts back we focused on the naked malice of Labor’s Bill Shorten – as he derided Joanne Kermond on national television. Joanne is among the many victims of Pacific Hydro’s non-compliant Cape Bridgewater disaster – an outfit owned by Bill’s Labor/Union buddies, which has been defrauding the Commonwealth for nearly 7 years:

Labor’s Bill Shorten Publicly Ridicules Joanne Kermond – a Victim of Pacific Hydro’s Non-Compliant Cape Bridgewater Wind Farm

Pacific Hydro & Acciona’s Acoustic ‘Consultant’ Fakes ‘Compliance’ Reports for Non-Compliant Wind Farms

But, apart from meting out malice and contempt for law-abiding Citizens being denied their common law and human rights, Bill Shorten is also hell-bent on destroying every energy intensive business left in this Country: think mining, mineral processing and manufacturing for a start.

Make no mistake, with its 50% Renewable Energy Target, Labor is determined to kill mining…

Wind Farms: Trigger ‘OUTRAGE’ When Proposed & ‘REJOICING’ When Scrapped

STOP THESE THINGS

john anderson Wheatley Energy Forum’s John Anderson and Dave Langmead can hardly disguise their justifiable glee as wind farm plan scrapped.

****

Rural communities across the Globe are fighting back against an industry with all the natural respect for property rights of Genghis Khan; and the moral fibre of Judas Iscariot.

These days, whenever a wind farm is proposed; or the developer is out in the field – literally ‘thumping’ its message home (see our post here) – the term most employed to cover the community’s response is ‘OUTRAGE’.

However, occupying the opposite end of the emotional spectrum, is the infectious, fun-filled term: ‘REJOICE’ – which is the only word powerful enough to capture the sense of victory and relief, for those who have spent thousands of relentless, unpaid hours dedicated to the defence of their communities, their homes, their farms, their businesses and their families.

Here’s an example of the…

UK Pledges To Ax Green Energy Subsidies
Daily Caller
Andrew Follett
15 October 2015

The United Kingdom is pledging to end all green energy subsidies by the mid-2020s.

“By the mid-2020s, we would like to see the government retreat as much as is possible from [renewable energy] subsidies, the current administration is aiming to be more discriminating about the types of low-carbon technology it wishes to support,” Stephen Lovegrove, the permanent secretary of Britain’s Department of Energy and Climate Change, said at an event Tuesday hosted by Columbia University.

Lovegrove said subsidies should end because “there is a cost being imposed on consumers which distorts the U.K.’s competitiveness and the [British] pound in people’s pockets when they get home.” Lovegrove is…

Wind Power Subsidies Crushing Families & Killing Thousands of Real Jobs

STOP THESE THINGS

spain unemployment Want to know about wind industry employment? Why not ask a Spaniard? Fully 26% of them will have plenty of time to attend to your inquiry.

****

The wind industry’s fortunes are waning all over the globe.

As politicians face the wrath of furious voters lumbered with the ludicrous costs of backing an entirely meaningless power generation source – subsidies are being slashed; investors are grabbing their money on the way out, before the whole Ponzi scheme inevitably collapses; and wind power outfits are struggling to simply stay afloat.

Being hammered by legislators keen to bring the rort to an end, the last redoubt for the wind industry’s parasites are claims that it can defy every last rule and principle of economics; and increase employment in an economy where a key input cost – ie electricity – is being driven through the roof, by ludicrous and wholly unnecessary producer subsidy…

Wind Power: How We Got Here (by John Droz Jr.)

Quixotes Last Stand

From John’s site:   Wind Power Facts

I saw an article in Mother Earth News that was shamelessly supporting wind power (a topic I know something about), so I contacted the writer. My question to him was: what scientificinformation do you have that proves that wind power does what it is supposed to do?

After several amusingly evasive correspondences, he finally conceded that he had none. In a desperate attempt to defend this untenable position he then said that no proof was needed!

In exploring this unexpected line of thought with this reportedly knowledgeable individual, it became quite clear to me that he did not have a big-picture concept of what is going on here.

But since this deficiency is clearly shared by many other people, let’s do a quick review as to how we have arrived at our current electrical energy predicament…

The first practical use of electricity…
