Wind turbine farms are going up all over the world to replace coal-fired energy in REZ - Renewable Energy Zones declared in each Paris Accord signatory country. This is part of the UN 17 Sustainable Development Goals which incorporate food, agriculture, energy, resource use, management of natural spaces and human habitation.

However, the construction and operation of these wind turbine farms pose many problems to the environment, and wellbeing of people, insects and animals. Wind farm turbines are presented as environmentally friendly, clean energy solutions for reaching carbon Net Zero.

Wind turbines rely on huge amounts of steel and iron ore, water, oil and batteries, as well as massive electricity transmission lines to power stations. In addition there is loss of agriculture, loss of bush and forestry, loss of habitat and soil. Yet, even then, the output doesn't match the demand.

So much for carbon reduction! The increase in carbon creation from these wind farms over the next few decades is more of an environmental concern than the rhetoric of dirty coal powered energy.

The only entities who win with these incorrectly named 'renewable energy sources' are the investors and government.

Negative effects IGNORED by Government and Investors

This article written by Peter Imanuelsen points out that billions of insects are being smashed to pieces by turbine blades, which has the following effects: 

  • Significant energy losses caused by the sheer weight of so many dead insects on the blades. There are even companies that specialise in cleaning the dead insects off wind turbines via cranes and helicopters. 
  • Insects have the vital task of pollinating many plants. 
  • Insects are also food for many animals, who in turn are food for larger animals. If insects went extinct, it would affect the whole lifecycle of flora and fauna.

    It appears that the push towards these wind turbines has many wide-ranging, long and short-term effects, which have been IGNORED by governments forcing through the UN Sustainable Development Agenda and the 2016 Paris Accord measures.
  • What's really going on here? Is this renewable energy just another newly created economic market for the politicians and their corporate buddies to capitalise on?
  • Have they exhausted all other money making schemes over the past few hundred years, so that now the environment is used as the next big SWINDLE of the century?

Using wind turbines to generate electricity is as insane an idea as the one suggesting that blocking out the Sun will cool the earth in a beneficial manner. The facts regarding wind turbines are given in an excellent article written by Anita from Scribbly Gum Graphics.

The plethora of Effects from Wind Turbines

Physical effects

  • Loss of sleep
  • Headaches
  • Motion sickness
  • Nausea
  • Audible frequency sound
  • Dizziness
  • Head pressure
  • Head pain
  • Balance disorder
  • Cognitive clouding - brain fog
  • Pressure in chest

Ecologial effects

  • Destruction of birds such as eagles, owls, hawks, owls, parrots, falcons, cockatoos, galahs, magpies and albatross. Seen as accepted collateral damage.
  • Bats- which eat mosquitoes and pollinate as bees do.
  • Heavy electro magnetic fields produced.
  • Noise - audible industrial level noise.
  • Catching on fire - risk of bushfires and pollution
  • Infrasound- low frequency noise.
  • Destruction of surrounding forests to make way for transporting in the construction materials.
  • Tonnes of concrete - never to be removed.
  • Requires huge transmission lines to bring the wind powered electricity to the cities.
  • Requires gigantic batteries, composed of lithium, cobalt, steel, copper and other finite resources.
  • Huge amounts of water required - over 600 megalitres during construction and over 1,000,000 litres per year during operation.

The evidence for opposition is more than compelling

Wind Turbine farms are going up around Australia, including in the Central Coast and Hunter regions of NSW. Kate Mason and Grant Piper discuss what the Wind Farms mean for Central West Orana REZ, local New England/Hunter Valley communities.

With an offshore wind farm being built off the Central Coast, Northern Beaches and other locations off the coast of NSW, there are serious concerns over the effects of sea bird life and the additional concerns of frequency pollution, sound pollution and the effects on marine-life.

Psychological & physiological effects of wind turbines for people - the very real dangers

For a 20 year lifespan the 1688 tons of material to build EACH turbine plus resources required to run it is counter-productive to clean energy

The For and Against

The turbines are not even made in Australia. The majority of the parts such as the base, tower and blades are imported from Denmark, China, India and Europe and assembled here. They are not recyclable, are an eye sore, bad for your health, a fire hazard, only work when there is wind, and they crack, taking them out of use for months.

Some turbines are up to over 800 ft tall, and take approximately 20,000 cubic meters of concrete for the base. This is non-recyclable, and will stay in the ground forever, rendering the land useless.

Huge amounts of land are needed for these wind farms. There is the implementation of deforestation, in addition to roads being destroyed by heavy machinery and vehicles during construction, rendering the roads dangerous for locals. They require grease, oil, water, hydraulic fluid and batteries for energy storage, and they are a visual blight upon the landscape and seascape.
