Industry is a Total Scam

We are constantly hearing news which further illustrates what a scam wind turbine industry is.

We are constantly hearing news which further illustrates what a scam wind turbine industry is. We now know that the figures claimed about CO2 emissions saved by these turbines has been false and was exaggerated by no less than 100 per cent.


The Advertising Standards Authority has upheld this complaint against a power company known as Renewable Energy Systems. This same formula is used by almost every other company.

We already know that these companies exaggerate the amount of energy each turbine produces, by quoting the installed capacity.

But, they only produce, on average, 24 to 30 per cent of their capacity because of the vagaries of the wind. And the third scam is the Renewable Obligation grant, or indirect subsidy given to this wind industry, a subsidy 27 times greater than coal ever had. Wind power is the sole beneficiary of this massive subsidy.

No wonder other more reliable technologies like tidal power don't have a look in.
