Really? Do yourself a favour and check out the Landsat photographs of Earth from Space since 1984. I’m making it easy for you; here’s a link to Kiribati - often reported to be disappearing beneath the waves. Just click on the LINK for this photograph:
8. Perhaps you think that wind turbines are a wonderful way to reduce ‘carbon [sic] emissions’ in electricity generation, and thereby ‘save the planet’?
And then there’s the manufacture of the mechanisms, the blades, the magnets, the wiring, the delivery and construction, etc.. All of these things involve considerable ‘carbon [sic] emissions’ - there's no avoiding this! Very conservatively, it will take at least 15 years before a turbine could possibly just break even! And then there's the ‘minor’ problem that if the wind doesn’t blow - either strong enough, or too strong - the turbines don’t work, so there has to be a constant back-up running, including to provide heating in freezing conditions. Of course, there is also another ‘minor’ (?) problem of the massive killing of wildlife - birds and bats (and aren’t environmentalists supposed to concerned about such matters?), to say nothing of the problems for both livestock and humans caused by infra-sound. (Don't believe this? There’s a standing offer for people to spend a holiday living in one of the now-abandoned farm-houses to test this out for themselves. It’s a fair offer!) And then there’s the fire risk as these things burst into flames quite regularly as their bearings give up - what a wonderful thing to happen during our bushfire period. I could go on. (Click on photos for interesting stuff!)
There’s lots more; I’ve mentioned that our planet is greening, and plant growth is increasing, but you most certainly will not know anything about these things unless and until you are all prepared to open your minds and look!
