Why the £250bn Wind Power Industry Could be the Greatest Scam of Our Age - and Here are the Three 'Lies' That Prove It

Scarcely a day goes by without more evidence to show why the Government's obsession with wind turbines, now at the centre of our national energy policy, is one of the greatest political blunders of our time.

Under a target agreed with the EU, Britain is committed within ten years — at astronomic expense — to generating nearly a third of its electricity from renewable sources, mainly through building thousands more wind turbines.

But the penny is finally dropping for almost everyone — except our politicians — that to rely on windmills to keep our lights on is a colossal and very dangerous act of self-deception.'

  1. Hmmm, well, I seem to recall growing up as a youngster that many European countries, one in particular (can't remember which one) had been using wind turbines successfully for years. They have fields of wind turbines dedicated to harnessing this great wind power. Of course, in terms of space, the UK doesn't have as much space as some other European countries who have vast amounts of land to strategically locate their wind turbines.

    Think about it, there isn't even enough space to house people in the UK let alone install wind turbines, some huge monstrosities, even looking much bigger than the houses they are perched on.

    Of course, before copying everything that everyone else is doing, you first have to see if it suits your own environment.

    Some environments are extremely hot and sunny and would benefit from solar powered energy for example, while some countries are extremely cold, dark with high winds.

    I think wind turbines would benefit areas with the most wind. There would be no use putting wind turbines in an area with very little wind as the purpose of using it would be defeated.

    Areas with lots of light and sunshine would also benefit from solar power.

    This just makes sense to me.


Thanks for your comment it is much appreciated.
