Disposal Of Wind Turbines A Major Environmental Concern

DISPOSAL OF WIND TURBINES PROVING TO BE A MAJOR ENVIRONMENTAL CONCERN 07/15/2018  Jason Hopkins | Energy Investigator Thousands of aging wind turbines will eventually need to be decommissioned, but the disposal of this “green” technology could prove to be a dirty job for environmental regulators. Besides a host of problems that occur during a wind turbine’s … Continue reading Disposal Of Wind Turbines A Major Environmental Concern

How Green is this? – Renewable Energy drives demand for base metals.

Saving the Environment on one side to destroy it another way. Not so Green - Another example of how "saving the planet" with renewables, while destroying it in another way does not add up. The surging demand for base metals for use in renewable energy and Electric vehicles. The Base Metal Boom: The Start of … Continue reading How Green is this? – Renewable Energy drives demand for base metals.

Wind Powered Energy

Petrossa's Blog

As machines, wind turbines are pretty good already; the problem is the wind resource itself, and we cannot change that. It’s a fluctuating stream of low–density energy. Mankind stopped using it for mission-critical transport and mechanical power long ago, for sound reasons. It’s just not very good.

As for resource consumption and environmental impacts, the direct effects of wind turbines — killing birds and bats, sinking concrete foundations deep into wild lands — is bad enough. But out of sight and out of mind is the dirty pollution generated in Inner Mongolia by the mining of rare-earth metals for the magnets in the turbines. This generates toxic and radioactive waste on an epic scale, which is why the phrase ‘clean energy’ is such a sick joke and ministers should be ashamed every time it passes their lips.

It gets worse. Wind turbines, apart from the fibreglass blades, are made mostly…

Study: Wind Power Increases Dependence on Fossil Fuels in EU

Study: Wind Power Increases Dependence on Fossil Fuels in EU; JUNE 25, 2018 | instituteforenergyresearch.org A study analyzing energy supply in the European Union shows that increasing the level of wind-generated electricity also increases the level of fossil fuel-generated electricity, the opposite outcome suggested by those who argue that renewable energy is necessary to “get … Continue reading Study: Wind Power Increases Dependence on Fossil Fuels in EU

Blasting mountain top’s for wind turbines.

Blasting Mountain Tops in Vermont To Make Way For 450-Foot Industrial Wind Turbines. This is not green, and not environmental, if it were for anything but "wind" it would not be allowed. Read Blasting Report for Wind Farm in Maine: “Blasting is expected to be required for most of the eighteen (18) turbine foundations, the … Continue reading Blasting mountain top’s for wind turbines.

Wind turbines around the Great Lakes? A terrible idea for birds, bats – Chicago Tribune

Wind turbines at Flakfortet near Copenhagen. (Jens Dresling / AP) Michael Hutchins The rush is on to build scores of large, commercial wind energy facilities in and around the Great Lakes, in Canada and the United States. From the proposed Galloo Island and Lighthouse projects in New York to Camp Perry and Icebreaker in Ohio … Continue reading Wind turbines around the Great Lakes?

Wind turbine vibration effect on animals.

Wind Energy Impacts and Issues. Wind turbine placement must consider vibration effect on animals. Although the study of the impact of industrial wind farms on migration is necessary and commendable, it is my concern that not nearly enough attention is being paid to the seismic vibrations generated by these wind farms. I can also hear … Continue reading Wind turbine vibration effect on animals.

Wind turbines are neither clean nor green and they provide zero global energy

Wind turbines are neither clean nor green and they provide zero global energy

13 May 2017 |Matt Ridley| The Spectator We urgently need to stop the ecological posturing. The Global Wind Energy Council recently released its latest report, excitedly boasting that ‘the proliferation of wind energy into the global power market continues at a furious pace, after it was revealed that more than 54 gigawatts of clean renewable wind … Continue reading Wind turbines are neither clean nor green and they provide zero global energy
