Wind industry told that dB(A) unsuitable to measure LFN emissions from wind turbines

Wind industry informed of how to predict annoyance from LFN emissions from wind turbines at Windpower ’87 Conference. Kelley explains how to measure LFN emissions that annoy neighbours of wind farms. Read more

British schoolchildren are being brainwashed by a deep green environmental curriculum which fills their heads with “confusion, ignorance and fear”, says a new study by the Global Warming Policy Foundation.

The report, by science writer Andrew Montford and statistician John Shade, finds that “eco-activism” has been given free rein within schools for at least three decades. Children are being encouraged to become “little political activists” with a duty to “save the planet” not least by putting pressure on their parents.

From the Science and Public Policy Institute, three essays by Michael Crichton that are ‘must reads’ for anyone wondering how the hell the myth of Global Warming has taken hold in the minds of so many people. I’ve been saying for a very long time that Anthropogenic Global Warming is the new world religion, as it was built on fear mongering, doomsday predictions, tithing, blind faith and persecution of heretics.

“It’s no secret that solar power is hot right now, with innovators and big name companies alike putting a great deal of time, money, and effort into improving these amazing sources of renewable energy. Still, the last thing you’d likely expect is for a new experimental array to literally light nearly 130 birds in mid-flight on fire.

And yet, that’s exactly what happened near Tonopah, Nevada last month during tests of the 110-megawatt Crescent Dunes Solar Energy Project.”

“According to Rudy Evenson, Deputy Chief of Communications for Nevada Bureau of… Read more

Icing is an important issue when operating wind turbines in high altitude or arctic areas as it can cause significant production losses and represent a safety risk. In 2004, a 600 kW Enercon E-40 wind turbine with integrated blade heating was installed on Gütsch mountain, Switzerland, at 2’300 m asl. Coincidentally, a fully equipped test station of the Swiss meteorological network SwissMetNet is situated about 200 m from the wind turbine. The immediate proximity of the two facilities operating under icing conditions led to the launch of the national research project “Alpine Test Site Gütsch” which is embedded in the European “COST Action 727: measuring and forecasting atmospheric icing on structures”.

hmanaI am writing in support of concerns regarding the LEEDco permit from the Ohio Power Citing Board. This letter essentially states HMANA’s opposition to wind power development in Lake Erie off the Ohio shore as proposed by LEEDco and transmits to you HMANA’s 2013 update to its policy statement on wind power development.

The Hawk Migration Association of North America’s official mission is to conserve raptor populations through the scientific study, enjoyment and appreciation of raptor migration. As a scientific, educational and conservation organization, HMANA collects data from hundreds of affiliated raptor monitoring sites throughout the United States, Canada and… Read more

leedcoMany groups and individuals from OHIO and Canada and Europe, who care deeply about wildlife, birds, bats and habitat, have been communicating their concerns with the LEEDCo “Incubator” project proposed for 6-9 industrial wind turbines off the shores of Cleveland.

LEEDCo calls its offshore wind project the Icebreaker. Beware that Lake Erie will be industrialized by hundreds or thousands of utility grade industrial offshore wind turbines pin cushioning Lake Erie, generating costly, intermittent power. LEEDCo sees 5,000MW of electric generated by 2030 in Lake Erie meaning hundreds of giant offshore turbines planted in the lake. People’s views of the lake will be lost, lake shore area property values will plummet, offshore wind development will spoil lake recreation and impact fishing and shipping, slaughtering birds and disturbing the character of the lake forever. This development is breaking the… Read more

Existing renewable energy hurts economies. We should follow Japan and find cheaper forms of clean power

The last twenty years of international climate negotiations have achieved almost nothing and have done so at enormous economic cost. Japan’s courageous announcement that it is scrapping its unrealistic targets and focusing instead on development of green technologies could actually be the beginning of smarter climate policies.

Japan has acknowledged that its previous greenhouse gas reduction target of 25 per cent below 1990 levels was unachievable and that its emissions will now increase by some 3 per… Read more
