    Reasons NOT to Sign a Wind Contract

    Turbines cost you money The future of farming is in efficiency and precision. Turbine roads and towers decrease efficiency every time a field is worked whether it is planting, harvesting, tillage, spraying or other applications. Major seed companies will be less likely to grow seed corn near turbines. They need to be expedient with aerial applications which turbines hinder. Turbines can interfere with GPS, drones and any newer technology that requires a consistent signal. They do not offer nearly enough . . .

    Geopferte Landschaften: Wie die Energiewende unsere Umwelt zerstört

    Sacrificed landscapes: How the Energy Transition is destroying our environment Erschienen (published): 14.11.2016, Verlagsgruppe Random House Produzieren wir statt Ökoenergie die nachhaltigste Naturzerstörung? Über die Schattenseiten der Energiewende zu sprechen gilt als politisch nicht korrekt. Aber soll man deshalb darüber schweigen? Tatsache ist: Die übereilt und planlos in Szene gesetzte Energiewende hat einen ungeheuren Wildwuchs an Windrädern und Solaranlagen hervorgebracht und droht sich zu dem bisher rasantesten Flächenverbrauch aller Zeiten in unserem Land zu entwickeln.

    Tiny the Turbine helps fight back the wind industry propaganda allowed into our schools

    Tiny the Turbine is a moral tale that tells the truth about the impacts of industrial wind development in a way children can understand. It has been written by a Highland anti wind campaigner, illustrated by a supporting Cartoonist and published online today. Some time ago it was discovered that not only were multinational wind developers welcomed into our schools, they come bearing gifts and speak to pupils regarding only the ‘benefits’ of wind development. Children are asked to name . . .
