Industrial wind turbines: Societally destructive 'saviour' or Folly of the fan

There is immense contradiction in supporting the concept of minimising the human footprint on the earth while endorsing the destructive intrusiveness of physically massive, feckless energy wind projects. Wind industry propaganda flatters the gullible, exploits the well-intentioned, and nurtures the craven.

The advent of massive industrial wind factories into rural Australia precipitates increasing national incivility. They pit neighbour against neighbour and rent the very fabric of our once strong rural families, thereby destroying our social harmony and well-being.

They plunder our environment while enriching foreigners all under the guise of some mythical societal benefit. They take our health, our land, our peace of mind and our taxes. We surrender our precious mountains to this most gross industry. And in return they give us social chaos, environmental destruction, lies, deceit, scorn, ill-health, football jumpers and a fire truck.

What price! What price we pay.

The major duty of government diligence via its planning instrumentalities, codes of conduct and ministerial control is to anticipate, eliminate or mitigate this kind of societal disruption.

Those who endorse or profit from placing such industrial complexes near the homes of others have no inclination to safeguard or foster a civil and healthy society.

There is immense contradiction in supporting the concept of minimising the human footprint on the earth while endorsing the destructive intrusiveness of physically massive, feckless energy wind projects.

Wind industry propaganda flatters the gullible, exploits the well-intentioned, and nurtures the craven.

Industrial wind is a fraud of enormous consequence whose foundation is based on greed, ignorance, subsidy and entrenched institutional deceit. People who value intellectual honesty should not allow themselves to be quietly fleeced by such industrial treachery or even by their government's callous ignorance and indifference. It represents not only poor science and wasteful economics but is ignorance in defiance of truth and indifference to the welfare of Australian rural families.
