    ‘During January of this year, wind and solar power output totally collapsed for days on end and pushed the German grid to the brink of collapse.’

    Truth, beauty, and functionality all in one.

    Australia’s Failed Wind Power ‘Experiment’ Makes it an International Joke: Wind Power Output Totally Collapses (Again)

    Anyone engaged in pushing the ‘truthiness’ of wind being able to ‘power’ Australia (or anywhere else for that matter) is in desperate need of professional care and/or medication: but the cult are not just delusional, they’re certifiably dangerous.

    Any sailor could have pointed out just how fickle the wind can be and the risks attached to attempting to rely on it to get anywhere, anytime soon.

    At least the sailor can seek better wind, unlike concrete-based turbines.

    BBC, 16 May: Spectacular scenes after lorry and wind turbine collision

    A lorry driver in Germany was lucky to survive with only minor injuries after a crash with a 62m-long turbine blade which was being transported to a wind farm.

    Police expected Autobahn 33 near Bielefeld to be blocked for hours as the blade landed across the road.
