    Welcome to the wind turbine graveyard
    “Welcome to the wind turbine graveyard. It stretches a hundred meters { 328 feet} from a bend in the North Platte River in Casper, Wyoming.

    California, Colorado, Kansas, and many other states are doing the same thing, the fiberglass blades will never deteriorate { not biodegradables }.

    Between last September and this March, it will become the final resting place for 1,000 fiberglass turbine blades.

    These blades, which have reached the end of their 25-year working lives, come from three wind farms in the north-western US state. Each will be cut into three, then the pieces will be stacked and buried.

    Turbines from the first great 1990s wave of wind power are reaching the end of their life expectancy today. About two gigawatts worth of turbines will be refitted in 2019 and 2020. And disposing of them in an environmentally-friendly way is a growing problem.

    This cost taxpayers $200,000 or more per unit or 200 million total for the 1000 blades to have them transported and decommissioned.

    It’s time to stop the madness, Wind mills are not the answer.

    Here is your “clean energy!”

    And this does not account for the non-clean energy needed to produce these things, from mining the materials, to the manufactoring process, etc.

    Everything involving the words ‘clean energy’ is a scam.
    None of it is clean. None of it can produce enough power to run a single home for a day. And real sources of power produce more reliable results w/o harming the environment.
    Give me a Necluear plant that can power a 1/4 of a state over these windmills or solar.

    The only practical application I’ve seen for wind power is a miniature turbine meant for mounting on a boat to charge batteries. The larger ones celebrated by environmentalists are good only for ruining the countryside and chopping up bats and birds. Oh and in the UK for earning the already wealthy owners of the land big fat government subsidies for having them on their land.

    Oh the subsidies exist here too. The people renting the governemnt the land are the only people making anything.

    Let’s not talk about how wasteful and environmentally unfriendly solar power is, when it comes to getting its materials, manufacturing, and disposal of.

    But so long as the $heep are willing to pay big dollar$ over so they feel like they are doing something…
