STOP THESE THINGS

lake winds Ohio says: NOT IN ANYONE’S BACKYARD.

The backlash against the great wind power fraud continues, apace. Here’s another tale of well-organised and well-informed community defenders in action; setting out to prevent yet another economic and environmental disaster that – in their prescient words:

would ruin our tranquil rural community and deprive us of our fundamental rights to hold and enjoy property“.

GREENWICH NEIGHBORS UNITED APPLAUD ENERGY MANDATE STUDY COMMITTEE’S REPORT

Greenwich Neighbors United (GNU), a group of property owners who joined together to coordinate efforts to voice concerns about a proposed industrial-sized wind turbine park in Huron County, applauds the report of the Energy Mandate Study Committee which recommends that there be no further escalation in the mandates until the impact of federal requirements are better understood. GNU had submitted a letter to the…

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…

Bank of England: “Climate change a ‘huge’ financial risk”

Watts Up With That?

climate-cash

Guest essay by Eric Worrall

The Bank of England has stepped into the climate fray, with a claim that climate change poses a huge financial risk to UK based businesses. For once I believe the Bank of England is absolutely correct (more below).

According to the Sydney Morning Herald;

Bank of England Governor Mark Carney said Britain’s insurers face potentially “huge” exposure to shifts in climate-change policy and Group of 20 nations need to do more to combat associated financial-stability risks.

“The challenges currently posed by climate change pale in significance compared with what might come,” Mr Carney said in a speech at a Lloyd’s of London dinner.

“Once climate change becomes a defining issue for financial stability, it may already be too late.”
England’s central bank has been looking into the economic and financial-stability risks posed by climate change and Carney spoke as the BoE published a report on…

Climate activists want us prosecuted under RICO

Watts Up With That?

Losing the climate science battle, climate activists want government to silence skeptics

Guest essay by Paul Driessen

They haven’t employed the thumb screws, rack or auto-da-fe that churches and states once used to interrogate, silence and eliminate heretics and witches. However, global warming alarmists are well practiced in the modern equivalents, to protect their $1.5-trillion Climate Crisis Industry.

They see only what they want to see, and publicize only what they want us to see. They refuse to debate anyone who questions the nature, severity or reality of “manmade climate change dangers” that are the foundation of their demands that we slash fossil fuel use, lower our living standards, and accept global government planning of economies and massive climate “adaptation and reparation” payments.

They collude to hide and manipulate data, and employ computer models that that make the Little Ice Age disappear and global temperatures climb rapidly after 1950…

Incessant Wind Turbine Infrasound: An Acoustic Invader

STOP THESE THINGS

when-is-wind-energy-noise-pollution

Among the growing list of what’s getting to the wind industry, its parasites and spruikers is the fact that – despite their relentless efforts to cover up both the work and the results – highly skilled people are working flat out around the world to discover the precise mechanism that causes the adverse health effects from incessant turbine generated low-frequency noise and infrasound, including sleep deprivation, vertigo and the like.

It’s not only the fact of their rather obvious conclusions that has wind-spinners in apoplexy, it’s the fact that they’re looking at all.

You see, the line being run is that there is NO problem – a tobacco advertising guru said so – so why on earth should anyone be looking?

For the wind industry and its parasites, the problem is, that there IS a problem: teams of highly skilled scientific investigators don’t generally devote their every waking hour…

An Open Letter To Amazon about the NC Desert Wind project

Watts Up With That?

9/1/15

To: Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos

Mr. Bezos:

I’m an energy expert, a longtime Amazon customer, and an ardent company supporter. As such I’ve read with great interest some breathless press releases about your recent procurement into the NC Desert Wind project.

Due to your careful management Amazon is now a large, successful company, that has made many good economic decisions. During your tenure, the company has publicly portrayed itself as not only environmentally sensitive, but also concerned for the national welfare. All this makes Amazon’s involvement with the Desert Wind project quite puzzling.

After you were approached by Iberdrola to partner with them, one would assume that you utilized a battery of lawyers on your payroll to do a thorough due-diligence on the Desert Wind project — what is apparently “Amazon’s largest renewable energy project to date.” Here are some facts that question the wisdom of Amazon’s subsequent decision…

Renewable fail: Weakest US winds for 40 years

Watts Up With That?

wind-turbine[1]

The Financial Times reports that the USA is experiencing the weakest wind speeds for 40 years, which is having a dramatic impact on wind energy businesses.

According to the FT (subscription may be required);

US clean energy suffers from lack of wind

A lack of wind is making the US clean energy sector sweat, with consequences for investors from yield-hungry pensioners to Goldman Sachs.
Electricity generated by US wind farms fell 6 per cent in the first half of the year even as the nation expanded wind generation capacity by 9 per cent, Energy Information Administration records show.

The reason was some of the softest air currents in 40 years, cutting power sales from wind farms to utilities. The feeble breezes come as the White House is promoting renewable energy, including wind, as part of its Clean Power Plan to counter greenhouse gas emissions.

“We never anticipated a drop-off in…
