“It is He Who sits on the circumference of the earth, with its inhabitants like grasshoppers;…Who turns governors into nothingness; Who makes judges of the land into naught — as if they were not even planted, as if they were not even sown, as if their stock was not even rooted in the ground; even if He were to blow on them they would wither, and a storm wind would carry them away like stubble.” Isaiah 40:22-24

WILL INDUSTRIAL WIND ENERGY
“SAVE THE PLANET?”
Or, is it
A PERNICIOUS SCOURGE:
SCIENTIFIC OR ECONOMIC VALUE ON EARTH?
Reasonable, compassionate human beings want to know the honest answer to this extremely important question.
The information and ~50 weblinks and videos on this Post will testify, and lead to hundreds of other supportive weblinks, that Industrial Wind Energy is founded in wishful thinking, pseudo science, and inefficient, exorbitantly expensive, pre-20th Century technology dressed-up to fool the People of America and All of Earth.
And, we are fooled – until we learn the hard way that it is a sham and world-class scam. Rather than a Scientific Approach to really solving our energy needs. It is a boondoggle advancing across the face of the earth like a juggernaut, as wind developers and their enablers wage a destructive
War Against Life on Earth.
And, those developers are looting the Public Treasury
like ravenous animals tearing apart their prey.
INDUSTRIAL WIND ENERGY IS A 21ST CENTURY TROJAN HORSE!!!
By its nature, it will NEVER replace fossil fuels for any semblance of electrical power to energize Man’s Modern World. It will not replace fossil fuels because it cannot produce clean, efficient power – even if it could do so on a predictable reliable scale. Which it cannot do!
The relatively few jobs it creates are artificial and parasitic, feeding upon the economies of the world. Spain alone learned at the cost of a devastated economy, that for every wind job created, two were lost from the overall economy!
Every place wind energy is aggressively pursued, and funded from the Public Treasury, the result is a NET LOSS OF JOBS AND A FAILING ECONOMY. Left unchecked, it WILL destroy economies, the environment, and LIVES, plunging the world into a
New Darker Dark Ages!
- [Note 1] Manufacture of the enormous structures includes use and processing of Rare Earth Elements (REE), which also results in radioactive waste contributing to destruction of the environment, and, yes, THE PLANET. Reportedly, “several thousands of pounds of REE per turbine…” along with the radioactive waste, and “…for every ton of REE there can be about a ton of radioactive waste.” http://www.northnet.org/brvmug/WindPower/H298_Assessment2.pdf; pp.9-10. “The amazing conclusion is that the wind energy produces more radioactive waste per MWH [MegaWattHour] than does a nuclear facility!” John Droz, jr. [Note 1]
- Wind energy is intermittent and unpredictable at best. Industrial Wind Turbines (IWTs) can only generate electricity that must be transmitted instantaneously to customers forcing other supplies off the lines and requiring instantaneous resumption when the wind stops. This intermittency must be compensated by back-up fossil fuel, usually gas-fired plants.
- Because existing and newly required fossil fuel plants must always be ready to ramp-up or down dependent upon the variations of the uncontrollable wind – there is NO reduction in CO2, and some increases! IT’S NOT GREEN!!!
- Under-productive in weather and time of day that need more electricity.
- Over-productive when there is less demand, but the utility still has to pay for energy it cannot use!
- Abysmal efficiency = EXORBITANT PRICES TO RATEPAYERS.
- Ratepayers, businesses and residences alike must pay ever-increasing rates to subsidize it.
- Multiple methods of extorting money from taxpayer and ratepayers are sucking us dry in an already precarious economy.
- One 2.2 MW turbine tower uses about 1000 gallons of oil.
- A Wind Power Plant requires grid electrical power to run the facility and reportedly to “jump-start” the turbines! [Some reports say fossil fuel, Liquid Propane is used to jump-start them.]
- NET JOBS LOSS and weakened economy. Spain is the first example of the economic destruction from Industrial Wind Energy; two jobs lost for every one Wind Energy job created.
These are just some of the negative aspects of Industrial Wind Energy.
IT DOES NOT REDUCE CO2 EMISSIONS!
IN FACT, IT CONTRIBUTES TO KEEPING THEM HIGH
AND INCREASING THEM!
But, there are those who only want to hear what fits their agenda, even if that means believing pseudo-science and other deceptions to feel good about helping to “save Earth” from fossil fuel energy. [Save it for what, if life is destroyed in the process?]
They are merely a small fraction of the estimated 7.078 billion people on the planet.
There is one true answer to wind energy’s proven effect on the planet.
There are many sources to find the facts. I cannot begin to cover all the evidence contributing to the only, logical and rational Truth,
Industrial Wind Energy does not belong
on the face of the earth,
nor in the sky above -
should means be invented to site it there.
[It creates micro-warming climates, with local desertification in the region.]
It is perniciously harmful to all living cells!!!
Accepting IWTs anywhere is NIMBYism (Not In My Backyard); any “setbacks” from my property infringe upon some one, some animal – bird – bat – fish – etc., wherever they are permitted. Therefore, if I say they are okay outside any given setback distance from my property, I am willing to subject other living beings to the dire effects I don’t accept for myself.
Until human beings believe that IWTs do not belong anywhere, they will continue to be sited everywhere a developer wants to put them, including as close to people as callous and capricious local governments will permit them.
I have learned the hard way —
A “Displaced-Refugee” Victim of Wind Turbine Syndrome, my adrenal glands were nearly destroyed by toxic Infrasound generated by IWTs sited 11.25+ MILES from my home! I am one of the growing number of human beings worldwide FORCED by wind permitting, complicit governments to
FLEE OUR HOMES FOR OUR VERY LIVES
by the ever-advancing
Wind Energy Front in the
War Against Life on Earth!!!
A bit over-the-top, you say?
When you learn the toll of human, bird, bat, raptor, wild and domesticated animals, you will see that these characterizations are correct.
Are we at least compensated so we can begin our lives anew far from the thousands of acres invaded by the
Gigantic Monsters in their
Forests of Illogical Dreams?
Narry a penny!
We are FORCED to become
Wind Energy Juggernaut!!!
The truth is, no reasonable person wants to live near them even without knowing the very serious adverse health effects. Hence, home values plummet – if you can find a buyer – and many homes are simply
People do not abandon, or sell their homes
at a substantial loss, without a compelling reason!
Testimony of Michael McCann on property value impacts in Adams County, [Illinois]: http://www.windaction.org/documents/27736
Many people who believe wind energy is wonderful and is saving the environment, are appalled and incredulous when they heard even a few of the facts of industrial wind energy’s negative effects on lives and economies across the globe and its overall devastating impact on the environment.
These negative effects happen to all living creatures, plant life and the earth itself.
Some realize the damage sooner than others!!!
But, the insidious, pernicious effects begin the instant living cells are subjected to the ILFN (Infrasound/Low Frequency Noise) generated and propagated by IWTs. Individual health status of the living being, and exact ILFN conditions affect how long it takes to perceive the effects. Renowned scientist/inventor Nikola Tesla warned the world of the destructive power of Infrasound on all living cells.
Science and technology have known of life-threatening effects of Infrasonic Wave Radiation for more than a century!
Known damage is caused by 1MW-rated and larger IWTs, which includes most of those operating and under construction today. They are only getting LARGER!!! Increasing the danger.
Because the Laws of Physics cause necessarily abysmal efficiency rates, the industry must continually make them BIGGER, trying to get more electricity out of them – and gobbling-up multiple thousands of land acreage (or hectares), as they seek elusive, unreachable goals.
This is the reason Man abandoned wind energy as a large-scale source of energy in a modernizing world at the end of the 19th Century! It is unreliable, intermittent, variable, and the technology used to generate it cannot be modernized in defiance of the Laws of Physics.
The ridiculously low efficiency can never be economically feasible. Just giving it more time and throwing billions upon billions of dollars at it
WILL NEVER CHANGE THE LAWS OF PHYSICS!
BUT, IT WILL MAKE THE WIND ENERGY INDUSTRY, PERIPHERAL INDUSTRIES, LANDOWNERS, AND POLITICIANS VERY, VERY RICH OFF THE PUBLIC TROUGH!!!
They are now available in 6MW-rated capacity, mega-monstrosities; with 10MW in sight. 2.2MW IWTs are about 500 feet tall. Imagine the size at 6MW, or 10MW!!!
But, efficiency does not increase with size or quantity, causing ever-increasing electricity rates to consumers.
We humans are the only living beings capable of voicing protest against the invasion and unconstitutional “taking” of our homes and communities. [See quotes from the 5th & 14th Amendments, above.] We must speak not only for ourselves and fellow humans, we must also speak for the voiceless creatures!
OUR VOICES ARE RAISED,
but we hear them bouncing back at us off figurative “block walls,” as leaders beat the drum for more IWTs everywhere they can force them upon us. The media is complicit in the deception; misquoting, making parodies of us, publishing propaganda and making false claims to make us appear ignorant, and “fringe,” to audiences who have never heard the real facts.
We are only the beginning.
As long as the boondoggle evades discovery by deception, our numbers will grow. Many will join our ranks and experience unjust treatment first-hand. Many more birds, bats, eagles, and other animals will die and/or suffer without the ability to cry for help!
IT WILL ONLY GET WORSE,
Unless the world awakens soon!
As long as a person believes there is no threat to his life or family, he is naturally inclined to accept change he believes is safe and necessary.
When that change suddenly proves a threat to his FAMILY’S LIFE,
he realizes there is something very wrong, setting-out to alert his neighbors and his government to the danger. The reception he finds among the indoctrinated, and the willfully blind government officials boggles the mind – it is not easy to fight against lies, power, money, and greed.
Wind energy developers are 21st Century Carpetbaggers
conducting a very skilful marketing scheme against trusting citizens, revenue-hungry public officials, and, yes, desperate landowners enticed with lies and ensnared with contracts that say they cannot report any adverse effects of allowing the siting of wind turbines on their property. [Note 3, see below]
They are “gagged” to remain silent no matter the harm inflicted.
And those carpetbaggers laugh all the way to the bank with their BILLIONS in ill-gotten taxpayer subsidies and tax credits, loans guaranteed by the U. S. Government, and exorbitant contract payments for the relatively miniscule amounts of electricity actually produced. They even extort payment for electricity the supplier can’t use!
The wind energy industry, its pseudo-scientific fellow-travellers, and all levels of government have SOLD-OUT trusting people worldwide.
WE ARE FED PROPAGANDA
selling the GREATEST SCAM ever perpetrated upon the people of every nation of the globe, with full cooperation of the majority of Media as they suppress Truth.
All of the above just exposes the TIP of the ICEBERG!
Wind Energy can NEVER fulfill the promises made for it.
It causes untold HIGH IMPACT, negative effects and,
