Wind Power Scandal Explodes & ‘Heads Must Roll’: James Delingpole Lists Britain’s ‘Most Wanted’ June 14, 2016

A week or so back, ex-Department of Energy and Climate Change apparatchik, and now head of RenewableUK, Hugh McNeal dropped the mother of all clangers, when talking about the “future” of wind power in Britain (see our post here).

The subsidies for wind power have been slashed and the wind industry, its parasites and spruikers have been attempting to engineer a reprieve, by rebranding fixed and guaranteed payments (of £80 per MWh – more than double current market prices of about £35 per MWh) as “subsidy free contracts” (see our post here).  Not bad for a product with no commercial value.

With that piece of semantic trickery going nowhere, and the wind industry subsidy trough fast emptying, wind power outfits have finally got what they fear most: the opportunity to compete with conventional power generation sources; which is what led Hugh McNeal to his ‘revelation’ that:

James Delingpole: Who Protects Britain’s Birds from the RSPB? June 9, 2016

eagle short-toed Wind turbine ‘saves’ climate change ‘victim’.


James Delingpole, hot on the hypocrisy trail, pops up a fair and reasonable poser: who protects Britain’s birds from its Royal Society for the Protection of Birds? (BTW: We’ve added a few graphics to help James make his point).

RSPB: We must build more bird-chopping eco cruifixes
James Delingpole
26 May 2016

Britain must build thousands more bat-chomping bird-slicing eco crucifixes in order to stave off “dangerous climate change” says the RSPB.

RSPB stands for Royal Society for the Protection of Birds and, no, this is not The Onion.

Yes, Britain’s oldest and biggest ornithological society really has put out a report demanding the erection of yet more avian Cuisinarts – despite swathes of evidence showing that these monstrosities are responsible for killing many millions of birds around the world every year.

Its rationale:

The way that we currently use energy in…

Democrats Continue Their Attack On The US Constitution April 9, 2016

Real Science

Necessity is the plea for every infringement of human freedom. It is the argument of tyrants; it is the creed of slaves.

William Pitt, 1st Earl of Chatham

The White House continues their attack on free speech, claiming that their abuse of power is for the public good.

The Competitive Enterprise Institute (CEI) today denounced a subpoena from Attorney General Claude E. Walker of the U.S. Virgin Islands that attempts to unearth a decade of the organization’s materials and work on climate change policy. This is the latest effort in an intimidation campaign to criminalize speech and research on the climate debate, led by New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman and former Vice President Al Gore.

“CEI will vigorously fight to quash this subpoena. It is an affront to our First Amendment rights of free speech and association for Attorney General Walker to bring such intimidating demands against a…

Wind Industry Claims Flying Blades & Crashing Turbines a ‘Landmark & Tourist Attraction’ February 25, 2016

Those daring young men in their flying machines. Machines that were not designed to fly, certainly. ‘Structural liberation’ sounds closer to Alinsky/Lenin/Stalin talk than to political conversation, but what do I know, I’m just a Yank…


BladeFailure_Spain Hacienda hit with ‘liberated’ blade in Spain.


The number of cases involving collapsing turbines and flying blades (aka “component liberation”) has become so common that, if we were a tad cynical, we would go so far to suggest the possibility of some kind of pattern, along the lines proffered by Mr Bond’s nemesis, Goldfinger: “Once is happenstance. Twice is coincidence. Three times it’s enemy action”.

Turbines keep crashing back to earth in frightening numbers – from Brazilto KansasPennsylvaniaGermany and ScotlandDevon and everywhere in between: Ireland has been ‘luckier’ than most (see our posts here and here) and their luck is being enjoyed in Sweden too (see our post here).

A month or so back, Swedes had the pleasure of waking up to the sound of a vertically-challenged 290 tonne, whirling Danish Dervish splattering itself across a country road, fortunately…

Wynne’s Wind Power Fantasy Puts Ontario in the Red February 19, 2016

The high cost of doing something – anything – to save the polar bears and keep the Aleuts freezing cold!
Consider this: the pain is intense; yet you think you may just see the ‘Underverse’. Riddick.

Wynne’s green energy putting Ontario in red
London Free Press
Jim Merriam
8 February 2016

It’s to be hoped the Fraser Institute didn’t spend much money on its recent study of the fiscal performance of Canada’s premiers.

Every resident of Ontario able to sit up and take nourishment — probably including Wiarton Willie last week — has known the study’s conclusion for a long time: Premier Kathleen Wynne is doing a lousy job of managing Ontario’s economy.

Wynne, with the help of her predecessor Dalton McGuinty, has reduced Ontario from a powerhouse to an empty house.

On almost every file Wynne’s government is found wanting if not severely under water, to borrow a phrase from the mortgage industry.

The worst is energy. The cost of power in the province has forced industries to close and some families to choose between heat and groceries.

A columnist in a Toronto newspaper recently…

If Greens love nature, why aren’t they more concerned about carpeting unspoilt, pristine landscapes with industrial wind turbines?

Broken Wing: Birds, Blades and Broken Promises January 18, 2016

Posted by parliamentofideas in Blogroll.

Rachel Carson wrote, in Silent Spring:

Alternative Designs Are Better!

Wind Turbines Kill!


Spring now comes unheralded by the return of the birds, and the early mornings are strangely silent where once they were filled with birdsong.

Little did she know the movement she began would lead to the destruction she envisaged.

I’d like to announce the release of my third book:

Broken Wing: Birds, Blades and Broken Promises

This is in eBook format and is available for free Kindle Unlimited download. Dozens of avian videos introduce you to species at risk.


The bird videos are amazing! 

Please find a front and back cover attached.

Today’s wind turbines

Kill millions of birds worldwide: raptors are threatened with extinction

Require significant amounts of CO2 to manufacture

Deliver electricity intermittently, at best

Require enormous back up coal and gas fired power plants creating yet more CO2

Can be unhealthy or harmful to local residents

Are deadly – to core component manufacturers and maintenance personnel

Have enormous costs – paid for by the taxpayer

There are many alternative wind turbine choices that do  not harm birds or people and are far more cost effective.

Only the wealthiest investors take benefit from today’s wind industry. Most of us pay higher prices for their indulgences.

My intention is to encourage awareness of the entire story, of effective design choices and of how to bring change to your local community.

I hope you enjoy the book and its electronic format.

The story is important for conservation and for the environment.

Your comments are appreciated!

Thank you,
