Editor’s Note: Ecocide in Greece

Deep Green Resistance does not support solar and wind “alternatives”. They are not alternatives to the energy and ecological crisis, but rather a part of it. They do not “replace” natural gas and fossil fuels, not only because the so-called renewable energy are not as potent an energy source as fossil fuel, but also because they rely on fossil fuel for basic operation. They contribute to the abuse, exploitation and plunder of nature. There are mountains of resources to support . . . Complete story »

Greek wind projects annoy environmentalists

ATHENS – Greece is launching schemes to protect its mountains and beaches from development — a move critics say is an effort to respond to complaints following a massive investment surge in wind energy that has already destroyed many habitats. The first initiative, known as “Untrodden Mountains” and announced at November’s COP26 climate summit, will initially put six mountainous areas under protected status. The second, “1,000 Pristine Beaches,” is expected to launch later this year and will prohibit any new development or . . . Complete story »

Turbine ‘torture’ for Greek islanders as wind farms proliferate

Until a few years ago, Agii Apostoli was a picturesque seaside village on the eastern coast of Evia, drawing a modest income from tourism and fishing. Now it is ringed by towering wind turbines whose night lights and whirring sounds are tantamount to daily “torture”, locals say. “Longterm visitors ask us, why did you allow this crime to take place?” laments Stamatoula Karava, a local employee involved in a local cultural association. With their aviation lights flashing through the night . . . Complete story »

Greece to ban development in mountain areas to protect habitats

Greece will forbid new road building and development in six of its mountain areas, taking a first step to protect its last remaining virgin habitats, Environment Minister Kostas Skrekas said on Tuesday. Making the transition to green energy a key priority, the conservative government of Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis has promised to shut down nearly all its lignite-fired plants by 2025 and protect areas with native plants and animals. Following devastating wildfires fuelled by a protracted heatwave last summer, the . . . Complete story »

Greek bird society says more wind turbines threaten vultures

ATHENS – Joining a chorus of critics who don’t want wind turbines used in Greece to power energy, the Hellenic Ornithological Society said plans to add more in the Akarnanian Mountains would jeopardize the country’s most important vulture breeding ground. Last month the regional unit of western Greece issued six licenses for category B (less than 10 MW) wind power stations for the area in western Greece, after others made unfounded complaints in the summer that wildfires on the island of . . .

How Greece loses its natural heritage

Since 2012, Greek authorities have failed to reach a significant goal as a member of the European Union. They have continued to ignore EU standards and requirements for natural resources and biodiversity preservation. Even though climate change is knocking at the door and gaining the world’s attention, Greece even now chooses the path of harming and disturbing its national natural treasures. New environmental legislation is exacerbating the failure of the Greek state by triggering a series of dangers and possible . . . Complete story »

Too much of a good thing? Wind power and the battle for Greece’s wild heart

Greece’s lack of a strategic planning framework allows developers to license wind power projects many times over requirements, disregarding their impact on local habitats. Is there a better way to plan for renewable energy that avoids damaging the environment in the name of combating climate change? “Name your three favourite places in Greece, then look at the map of the Greek Energy Regulator. There is most probably a wind farm planned there”, says Dimitris Gotsis, a design engineer and outdoors . . . Complete story »
