Reblog: “Greens’ silence on folly of wind and solar power” by Ian Plimer in News Weekly, October 25, 2014

“The answer is certainly not blowing in the wind…The amount of energy embedded in steel pylons, concrete footings, blades, wiring, magnets, land clearing and roads is more than a wind pylon would ever generate in its working life. Wind farms cannot generate electricity in a gentle zephyr or a gale, cannot operate continuously and optimistically operate at 20 per cent of nameplate capacity…Wind farms do not reduce human emissions of carbon dioxide; they increase emissions.” ~ Prof Ian Plimer, October 23, 2014.

Excellent analysis of the fantasy and fraud of wind farms.
