PS – 32:

(PS-32: Some up to date stats & extrapolation thereof)

Some up to date stats & extrapolation thereof:

The figures below are based on the bulleted points of Ofgem, Renewable UK

  • 5,061 onshore turbines in the UK
  • 18,000 gigawatt hours of electrcity generated by onshore turbines in 2014
  • 5.5 million homes could run for a year on that power
  • 5.6% of the UK total electricity needs

One should be minded that the Conservatives also say that the onshore turbines “often fail to win public support and are unable by themselves to provide the firm capacity that a stable energy system requires”.

Some reports estimate that almost 3,000 wind turbines are awaiting planning permission!

In very round terms that would push up the numbers to around 8,000 turbines and constitute around 9% of the UK total e;ectricity need showing that to convert to wind developed power we would require a total of some 80,000 turbines + of course a guarantee of exactly the right wind conditions to power them at 100% efficiency!

The downside of this entire farce when considered as a solution to our power needs that can be relied on is that however many turbines are imposed upon the countryside and whatever the damage thus done to the visual amenity and the health and well being of the populace at large, wind turbines will not only require a subsidy for ever but will also fail to provide a reliable source of energy!

With 100% of our electrical power needs theoretically supplied by 80>100,000 wind turbines, do be minded of the fact that based on current track record they will ALL have to be replaced every 12>15 years and we will have to build sufficient mnuclear power stations to match the 100% power needs as wind turbines can not be relied on – Wind turbines are thus little more than an extraordinarily expensive, politically correct luxury and to many a curse!

One is forced to ask firstly whether there is in fact, in these constrained times, either the political will or more practically the hard cash to fund these tokens of panic, when clearly they still leave us with the bill for building nuclear power stations and seeking other inexpensive energy sources such as fracking.

Withdrawal of the subsidies are bound to cause shock waves to those parasitically feeding off the tax payers, not least of whom are Scotland with some 3,000 turbines
Scotland has more than half the UK's onshore wind turbines, according to official figures
who enjoy a £3Bn a year turbine subsidy at the expense of the British tax payers!

This shows a subsidy cost of around £1Bn per 1,000 turbines thus clearly we would be unable to continue subsidies as that would amount to around £100Bn a year when cheaper, more practical and less damaging nuclear power stations still need to be built due to the unreliable inefficiency of wind power!


We believe the information gathered on this site can act to bring the truth, regarding the dishonesty of the claimed benefits of Wind Turbines (WT) to the front of people’s minds as they are regularly taxed, in a hidden tax, on their energy bills to fund these politically correct and fundamentally all but useless monstrosities.

We have gathered a great deal of information in our efforts to prevent the industrialisation of Stroat and the banks of the Severn Estuary and across the wider area including the Forest of Dean (FoD) as administered by The Forest of Dean District Council (FoDDC), areas of outstanding natural beauty (AoONB), sites of special scientific interest (SSI) & wildlife habitats.

Please help to spread the truth about the Wind Turbine scam and the fundamental flaws and lies of the ‘Warmists’ & self proclaimed ‘Greens’, which are presented as ‘fact’, regarding the anthropogenic influence of mankind on Global Warming and Climate Chance.

Arm yourself with facts to defeat the biggest con of the late 20th and early 21st Century, and do please spread the truth and the URL of this site as widely as you can.
