Skyscrapers, Towers, And Wind Turbines May Be Causing Thunder Snow

There is a credible amount of peer reviewed research linking buildings and large towers to cloud-to-ground lightning in snowstorms. Shocking, right? Since cloud-to-ground lightning is what is most dangerous to us (though accounts for a minority of lightning compared to intracloud and cloud-to-cloud), it is worth a further look. Christopher Schultz, a research meteorologist at … Continue reading Skyscrapers, Towers, And Wind Turbines May Be Causing Thunder Snow

Irony Alert: Weather Destroys Weather Dependent Power Source – Lightning Incinerating Wind Turbines — STOP THESE THINGS

The wind industry and those that promote it look more ridiculous, by the day. An entirely weather dependent power source, abandoned a couple of centuries back for pretty obvious reasons, exhibits all the resilience of a snowflake in summer. The irony that some ordinary old meteorological phenomenon (wind, rain and lightning) can easily knock wind […] … Continue reading Irony Alert: Weather Destroys Weather Dependent Power Source – Lightning Incinerating Wind Turbines — STOP THESE THINGS
