A must watch documentary about wind power in Germany.

In this 29-minute documentary of the first German public television channel, all the essential issues were treated:

  • destruction of the environment by wind turbines
  • uselessness of wind turbines
  • conflict of interests of local councillors
  • wind turbine pollution
  • collusion between the nature protection association and the wind lobby
  • energy poverty
  • wind lobby up in arms against the reform of the renewable energy law
  • pressure put on decision-makers by the wind lobby

    BBC radio today had a typical propaganda piece about renewable energy, moaning about how local councils can no longer make money from operating their own wind turbines and solar panels, due to subsidy cuts. One of those interviewed was in raptures about how their wind turbines were still turning despite the absence of wind, so we need to get the message across that wind turbines are often CONSUMERS of electricity to keep them turning to avoid bearing damage.

    Actually they don’t consume very much in that mode, the main point is that they often don’t generate, even when they are turning.

      ‘One of those interviewed was in raptures about how their wind turbines were still turning despite the absence of wind’ – Self-awareness is a problem with these people, isn’t it?

    As the expert (against wind farms) says about 20 minutes in: “Dirty business with clean energy”

    I really hope that someone from GWPF picks up this film and then over-dubs it to make it easier for an English-speaking audience. It would be a great documentary for the UK – to show that we are not alone.

    Personally, I couln’t get my hat off to the way, in one part the local mayor admitted he had allowed a turbine to be built on his property – outside the agreed turbine area – because, as he admitted – he would be mad to turn down 10k Euro a year for it. If I lived there I would take an industrial disc-cutter to the tower.

    The wind industry paid their employees’ wage & travel costs to attend pro-wind farm rallies!

    Imagine the furore greenies would raise if oil & gas companies did the same thing for their employees to attend anti-turbine rallies. They’d generate sufficient hot air to make Hinckley C redundant.

      Great work, Tim.

    Talk to some of the electrical engineers privately and you will get quite an earful as to what they really think……Basically they don’t appreciate working with their hands tied behind their backs because their project managers have tight connections to the politicians and environmentalists who demand we all follow this course at full speed down a dead end street!

    Having watched the complete video, I would say that the corruption and lies within the wind industry and its lobbyists in the UK and within many local planning authorities is very similar to that shown in Germany. However, at least in the UK the Government have been successful in cutting the subsidies for onshore wind and in changing the planning policy to make it virtually impossible to build even a single wind turbine in England. Similar changes have also occurred to subsidies to other forms of renewable energy in England.

      In Bavaria is it now impossible to build new wind turbines, because the distance to the next living building must 10 times the height of a turbine. And the subventiones for RE went down drastically. The Greens are outraged…

    I don’t suppose the BBC will be showing the video any time soon.
