Victorian Vengeance: Neighbours Launch $Multi-Million Noise Nuisance Law Suit Against Wind Farm Operator & Local Council

STOP THESE THINGS

Don Jelbart: launches million dollar claim against his tormentors.

Tormented by wind turbine noise for years, a group of Victorian farmers have launched Supreme Court action seeking $millions in damages.

The community surrounding the Bald Hills wind farm, built by a Japanese developer, Mitsui and Co, have been tortured by incessant turbine generated low-frequency noise and infrasound since May 2015, when its 52, 2 MW Senvion MM92 turbines spun into action.

Neighbours started complaining to the developer about noise, straightaway.

But, as is their wont, the developer and its goons simply rejected the mounting complaints and carried on regardless. As we explain below, that callousness will soon come back to bite them.

Locals, however, were not perturbed.

Instead, they lawyered up. Engaging the feisty and tenacious Dominica Tannock.

Starting in April 2016, Dominica went after the South Gippsland Shire Council which, under the Victorian Public Health and Wellbeing Act 2008…

Calculated Chaos: Renewable Energy Zealot’s Wind & Solar Plan for California Just Doesn’t Add Up

STOP THESE THINGS

Mad Bill doesn’t just look like a zealot …

Facts, reason and logic have never troubled the true believers in our ‘inevitable transition’ to an all wind and sun powered future.

Trifling matters, like cost and reliability, are dismissed in an instant. The slaughter of millions of birds and bats, swept under the carpet. And the environmental havoc wreaked across countryside carpeted in thousands of toxic turbines and solar panels from horizon to horizon, is deemed to be all for the greater good.

They’re not called zealots, for nothing. As Robert Bryce details below.

A fully renewable California?

Back in 2012, the environmental organization 350.org and its leader, Bill McKibben, took a “Do the Math” tour across America to talk about “the terrifying math of the climate crisis.” Alas, it appears McKibben has since developed an allergy to simple arithmetic.

Wind Power: World’s Greatest Joke – UK Left Powerless During the ‘Big Calm’

STOP THESE THINGS

The greatest joke ever played on the world is the idea that the wind can – and will soon completely – power modern economies.

When the wind disappears for days and even weeks on end, those that promote it tend to get twitchy and change the subject.

Sometimes it’s mutterings about mega-batteries (that don’t exist) or pumping water uphill using electricity from (don’t tell them this part) coal-fired power plants to later deliver hydropower to plug those ever-yawning wind power gaps.

If either giant batteries or pumped hydro were economic, they wouldn’t need buckets of taxpayer’s money. The same is, of course, true of intermittent and unreliable wind power.

As sailors and kite-flyers well-know, planning your progress and/or amusement around the weather leads to mixed results.

Just how intermittent and unreliable the wind can be has been revealed (again) across the UK over the last month or so.
