Guest “Ha Ha!” by David Middleton ‘No more wind.’ WA state utility questions efficacy of wind farms for power generationBY BILL VIRGIN CONTRIBUTING WRITERSEPTEMBER 19, 2020 […] Renewables, a category that also can include solar and more exotic forms like geothermal or tidal, will, so the theory goes, help “de-carbonize” the region’s generating portfolio of…
They never tell you about the costs – or the environmental destruction – that they have hidden from you for decades. But neither do most governments, news media or social media.
You would think that with all the added wind and solar energy in Germany, along with all the conventional power plants on standby, all totaling up to huge unneeded capacity, there would be no need to import any power at all. Well, think again.

I’m not a scientist, nor an engineer, in fact barely educated beyond high school, so, whilst you won’t get ‘shorthand’ scientific terms here, you will get something laymen can…

But people are getting excited, and EU cash is pouring into this expensive new wind power scheme. A New Weapon Against Climate Change…
