Wind turbines are truly “green”?

Wind-farm trouble in Ontario

Anyone who is expecting the construction of wind turbines in their neighbourhood may wish to watch this video. It is likely that the video will tell everything one needs to know, to learn that “green” is not a very enjoyable experience for many people who suffer on account of wind turbines near them, that it is not even “green.” See for example the section that presents data on what environmental pollution is being addressed (needlessly or even not at all) by wind turbines: https://youtu.be/55-jBCjtJ88?t=3430

The video is long (1 hour and 30 minutes). Therefore it could be a good thing to bookmark it, if it is desired to watch it in installments. The URL can be bookmarked for any desired time in the video. Just stop the video, right-click it, and make the appropriate selection from the pop-up menu that will then be displayed.

Afterthoughts, 2017 07 23:

Aside from any other considerations as to the nuisance factor of wind turbine installations, what does anyone get out of having them?

Wind turbines produce problems.
Energy generation from wind has serious ups and downs, in Germany, in all of Europe.

Wind-turbines fail: Germany (Europe, that is): Energy generation from wind will always require 100% back-up from conventional sources

It is hard to see that wind and solar energy generation does much more than destabilize the quality of energy availability, which it takes enormous amounts of capital investment to mitigate.

The following graph is not from Pierre Gosselin’s article.  The graph shows energy generation in Germany (from all sources) and consumption for one full year, from July 2016 to July 2017.

    Businesses Belted by Australia’s Renewable Energy Target: Power Prices Spiral Out of Control

    May 28, 2017 by stopthesethings

    Australia’s Renewable Energy policy is an economic suicide pact, from which there is no escape.

    The result of that winning combination of greed, ignorance and downright stupidity, the Renewable Energy Target has destroyed businesses and is set to destroy whole industries.
