It is heartbreaking to read, in our P&J on Friday May 1, that the insatiable wind industry is intent on carpeting the finest landscapes, and seascapes, in western Europe with ever more demonstrably useless and hugely damaging industrial wind factories, a simply devastating 74 applications in total.
Particularly so, as a riveting new documentary film Planet Of The Humans, by Jeff Gibbs and Michael Moore, was released free to the public on YouTube to mark the 50th anniversary of Earth Day, with more than a million views on the day of release. It reveals that industrial wind farms, solar farms, biomass and biofuels are ALL wrecking natural environments, ALL increasing CO2 emissions, ALL rapidly increasing fossil fuel consumption, ALL vastly increasing the mining, processing and transporting of the Earth’s dwindling raw materials. Each MW of wind power capacity gobbles up 220 tonnes of coal!
The farcical pretence of the wind industry to be “combating climate change” is no longer tenable.
The film should serve as a wake-up call to well-meaning but misled politicians, and so-called “Friends of the Earth”, who haven’t a clue about the environmental damage they are causing.
Yours, trying to educate the gullible before it’s too late.
