Trying hard not to laugh

One of the biggest blights on today’s landscapes is the presence of wing farms and the huge wind driven turbines they use (aka bird mincers) Supposedly the answer to the problems of man made global warming climate change global climate disruption, they neither worked when we needed them, had to be massively subsidised, had to be powered up when it was too hot (at cost to us) and amazingly enough were not terribly environmentally friendly to wildlife owing to spinning blades and a massive concrete block in the base for stability.

Still, I bet you’d not suspect this one…

Telegraph.

Wind farms can cause climate change, according to new research, that shows for the first time the new technology is already pushing up temperatures.
Usually at night the air closer to the ground becomes colder when the sun goes down and the earth cools.
But on huge wind farms the motion of the turbines mixes the air higher in the atmosphere that is warmer, pushing up the overall temperature.
Satellite data over a large area in Texas, that is now covered by four of the world’s largest wind farms, found that over a decade the local temperature went up by almost a centigrade as more turbines are built.
This could have long term effects on wildlife living in the immediate areas of larger wind farms.
It could also affect regional weather patterns as warmer areas affect the formation of cloud and even wind speeds.
And as even bigger wind farms are built around the world, there are calls for further research to see if it could even affect climate change on a larger scale as regional weather patterns drive global weather.

Yes, that’s right, wind farms cause global warming…

So, the solution to a supposed problem is actually a major problem as and of itself, never mind the other problems I highlighted. Hopefully this along with the demise of the solar powered industry will finally kick the environmental suicide lobby right where it really hurts and remove them from the positions of influence in the corridors of power where they’ve comfortably joined in a symbiotic relationship with the parasite political class.

Somehow though, I doubt it, something new will turn up still, you’d really need a green heart of stone not to laugh at this.

    I saw this too – it’s comical isn’t it?

    Yet there is also a glaringly obvious screw loose with their reasoning because wind turbines are supposed to extract energy from the atmosphere, not add to it.

    I saw that study as well and smirked, so the warming was localized to the area of the study.
    However, as wind farms are now a global concern, this equates to wind farm global warming (WFGW) surely?
    Although I’m sure someone will knock up a peer reviewed study showing the extact reverse and have it published all before bedtime.

    It needs to be remembered that average temperature is only a ‘proxy’ for the total amount of energy stored in the ecosphere. Also that it is only a change in this total energy (up or down) which can be anything more than local variation, and so not planet threatening – though perhaps a reason to plan to move house north or south in the longer term.

    Amusing though it is that wind turbines stir things up, there is nothing here but hot air.

    Best regards

    I have to agree with Mr.Sedgewick here…
    However..this does not detract from the glorious PR resulting for the anti-wind farm brigade, of which I am one.
    For once, the spectacular misreporting of the media, unable to resist the headline, has worked in our favour.
    Hilarious.

    The good thing is that wind farms have so quickly come to be vilified – it’s almost a self-actualizing process now.

      That’s a good point – the power of the nimby effect?

    Wind farms are making things worse.
    What we need are revivified water-mills – driving turbines, natch, and nuclear power.
