Meanwhile, 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.
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.
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.
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.

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.)
Michael Moore presents Planet of the Humans, a documentary that dares to say what no one else will this Earth Day — that we are losing the battle to stop climate change on planet earth because we are following leaders who have taken us down the wrong road — selling out the green movement to wealthy interests and corporate America. This film is the wake-up call to the reality we are afraid to face: that in the midst of a human-caused extinction event, the environmental movement’s answer is to push for techno-fixes and band-aids. It's too little, too late.
Removed from the debate is the only thing that MIGHT save us: getting a grip on our out-of-control human presence and consumption. Why is this not THE issue? Because that would be bad for profits, bad for business. Have we environmentalists fallen for illusions, “green” illusions, that are anything but green, because we’re scared that this is the end—and we’ve pinned all our hopes on biomass, wind turbines, and electric cars? No amount of batteries are going to save us, warns director Jeff Gibbs (lifelong environmentalist and co-producer of “Fahrenheit 9/11” and “Bowling for Columbine"). This urgent, must-see movie, a full-frontal assault on our sacred cows, is guaranteed to generate anger, debate, and, hopefully, a willingness to see our survival in a new way—before it’s too late.
So I watched the movie, and like I thought, there is nothing new presented for us here, but it certainly struck the nerve for many environmentalists. The left is going to hate them because of this.
Anyways, I went to see what is going on in Germany and I found this file: https://www.ise.fraunhofer.de/content/dam/ise/en/documents/News/0120_e_ISE_News_Electricity Generation_2019.pdf
The headline is: "Public Net Electricity Generation in Germany 2019: Share from Renewables Exceeds Fossil Fuels". And in it, it says:
"In 2019 the total electricity production from all renewable sources was about 237 TWh, an increase of 7 percent compared to 2018, and above fossil fuel carriers (207 TWh) for the first time."
Oh, the Germans must be so proud of themselves!
The only problem is that the fossil fuel carriers plus nuclear production is still higher than production from all renewable sources, and they are still counting biomass as a renewable. For more info about biomass problem you can see the above mentioned movie.
It also says this:
"Electricity exports also decreased strongly, falling from 48 TWh in 2018 to about 30 TWh in 2019."
Which means that Germany is selling less energy. I don't think that the Germans will be proud about that.
Of course, what they won't tell you is that wind and solar output can and does drop to almost zero depending on, duh, wind and sun. As long as it does that (i.e. forever), these "renewables" cannot power a single household, and not a single "steady" power source can be replaced by them. To hide that fact, the ideologues often use charts that use a low resolution, i.e. 15 minutes instead of minutes, therefore hiding the drops to zero. But you can see these drops even in their own data.
Also, note that "self-generation" by large industries is not included in these charts. I don't know the numbers, but I bet that there are many large industries who use their own power generation systems, not least because of the insane cost of energy in Germany... thanks to renewables.
