Greenies Hoisted by their Own Petard! By James Reed
The sight of a wind turbine sends me into fits of rage, like e-scooters and all the gee whiz tech that makes inner city elites, uni. types, those sorts of people feel morally superior to people like me who have to burn every scrap of lead-paint encrusted timber, and toxic coloured paper to survive this colder than usual (due to global cooling leading up to an ice age), Melbourne winter.
“Researchers from Harvard University have made an interesting and hilarious discovery with regards to wind power, which actually causes more global warming than the burning of fossil fuels does. While massive wind farms are said by some to be the “renewable” energy source of the future, two Harvard scientists have found that the spinning blades of these massive metal monstrosities create more climate warming than coal plants, as one prominent example of the fossil fuel energy that climate alarmists claim is creating global warming. In fact, wind turbines are more “polluting” in terms of the heat they give off than any fossil fuel energy source currently in use, which just goes to show that so-called “clean” energy is, at least in this case, a myth. Published in the journal Joule, the paper concluded that, if all of the electricity demands of the United States could suddenly be supplied by nothing but wind turbines, the surface of the continental states would increase in temperature by a shocking 0.24 degrees Celsius. This figure is vastly greater than the 0.1 degree Celsius temperature reduction that climate fanatics are aiming to achieve by “decarbonizing” our nation’s electricity sector before the finality of this current century. “If your perspective is the next 10 years, wind power actually has – in some respects – more climate impact than coal or gas,” says David Keith, a professor of applied physics and public policy at Harvard, and one of the study’s two primary co-authors.”
An intelligent response should of course be made … Ha! Ha! Greenies!
