The Federal Environment Agency is in the hands of green ideologues who would rather see people getting sick than abandoning renewables. Plus, there are huge financial interests of the "green industry". So I fear it will turn out just as with Cell phones and Wifi: We looked at it, didn't find anything, case closedMeanwhile, the German government seems to be taking the US reports seriously – a new research project investigating the effects of infrasound from wind farms has now been launched by the German Federal Environment Agency. It remains unclear when the results of the study will be released.
I think we could safely remove the question mark from this thread title. In fact, it should probably be renamed to "Wind Energy: Pure Evil"The most frightening thing about Figure 3 is that the addition of volatile power generation machines has hardly brought us an increase in feed-in power. There is also no evidence of base load base formation. One notices that the forest has become denser at needle tips and the needle tips higher. In practice, however, this means an immensely increased need for control. However, control current is expensive. And every intervention increases the risk of malcontrol. Since electricity is an indispensable component of a functioning infrastructure, any intervention endangers the safety of the population.
Conclusion: Every solar panel and every wind power plant only costs us money, does not generate any revenue and increases the risk of malcontrol and thus the risk of blackout.
I hear you, brother...I hate them with a passion, and it makes me SO angry. It's such a stark reminder, even in that quiet and beautiful spot I inhabit, of the absolute insanity of this world. I mean, the destruction of the landscape ALONE would be enough to be against these things.
Thanks for putting it so nicely. For those who are unaware of the scope of this - look at these pictures from Germany. And know that Germany is the role model for the world when it comes to the Green Utopia - so watch out, soon to come to your place:There are so few areas of real solitude left, untouched by industrialized/corporate Man, across our Western nations. The wild uplands and serene coastlines where the horizon touches the sky unmolested are those last places of refuge those of us with a sense of spirituality retreat to, to recharge our batteries.
The beauty of Nature's expressed purity connects us on a profound level... She speaks the language of our soul. The PTB know this. This is why wind-farms are aggressively pursued to impose upon those last remaining areas of natural beauty and solitude. They wish to disconnect us further than we already are in this modern materialist world of synthetic environments.
I see it as an expression of Evil.
This article verbalises so bitter-sweetly the abomination of the above pictures. It's a sharp lesson in trying to let go of that restricting emotion-anger. I'm working on it although we don't have them too near to where I live , so it may be a case of-not in my back yard.Here's a wonderful little literary text from a German (rather a left-winger btw). Sounds a bit like the description of Atlantis the Cs gave
The sunken village
Wind Power Horror II
When a valley is flooded for a hydroelectric power plant, the people who lived there lose their homes. They have to leave their homes and with their homes they lose their history, their past, their culture, everything that has made up their lives so far. Everything sinks, everything is swallowed up by the floods of an energy-hungry time. Only the steeple sometimes still stretches its arm out of the water like a drowning man who no one rushes to help.
What should the inhabitants of the village do? They know: They cannot escape this sacrificial ritual. Their lives are sacrificed to make another life possible - one that corresponds to the feverish dream of modernity, the dream of a life of sitting, a life as a ruler that monitors the dynamics of world affairs from its throne.
In this way, people submit to their destiny and move to the places they are offered as alternative quarters - places without history, without past, without culture. But what they have lost lives on in their hearts. The image of the old homeland remains alive in them. In this way they can shape their new places of residence according to the image of their old homeland. Certainly, it will not be the same homeland. But perhaps it will be a home and, who knows, at some point a new home for their descendants.
If a valley is surrounded by wind turbines, the people who live there will also lose their homes. From one day to the next their village is only the forecourt of a power station, their hills are transformed into foundations for gigantic industrial plants that stain the valley with their flickering shadows. Past, culture, history - everything sinks into the vast shadow of an energy-hungry time.
Of course: the houses are still standing. No reservoir has flooded them, and even the steeple still rises undamaged from its centre. If it could speak, however, it might wish to be able to rise out of a large, dark lake as a memorial to the loss suffered. In reality, it looks like a warning dwarf finger, which nobody notices next to the gigantic steel towers.
The inhabitants of such a village are also sacrificed to the feverish dream of modernity, which is electrified by its own seemingly unlimited possibilities. They also lose their homeland, their culture, their lives. Nobody wants to live like them, nobody wants to trade with them. Like the ferryman in the fairy tale, who is condemned to sail back and forth between life and death in the twilight realm until an unwary traveller takes the helm from him, they are ostracized, with whom no one wants anything to do.
But they are told: What do you want? Your houses are still there! What could be more beautiful than living under the cathedrals of the present? Or do you want to refuse to believe in the new age? Do you seriously deny the salvific power of the great miracles of wind exploitation?
And so there is no escape for the inhabitants of the village. There are no resettlement programs for them, no one offers them to rebuild their old homeland in another place, illusory as that may be. They cannot say to themselves: Well, the old is destroyed, but it lives on in our hearts, let us re-create it according to this image. For the images in their hearts do not remain untouched by the reality of the buried world in which they have to live.
Yes, their world has perished as if in an invisible reservoir. One can dive through them as if through an underground museum that silently bears witness to a bygone time. Ghostly, as their own revenants, the inhabitants sneak around their houses.

Possibly even wind power would be more useful as a small system on someone's personal property. Distribution problems would practically be eliminated.Voyageur said:Unless wind-farming is done on a massive scale, which has low yields comparatively anyway, and which you well point out the many other issues, wind is not viable unless for someone with some land providing for their own energy needs and if using well engineered low impact equipment. There are other viable options for those people too (geothermal etc.)
