(ConservativeSense.com) – Wind turbines have been malfunctioning and collapsing in the US and Europe. Fraser McLachlan, chief executive of GCube Underwriting Ltd., a London-based insurance company responsible for $3.8 billion in wind assets in 38 countries said, “We’re seeing these failures happening in a shorter time on the newer turbines, and that’s quite concerning.”
There are around 70,000 wind turbines in the United States, with an average of 3,000 fitted every year. These extremely bulky machines can be as tall as the Statue of Liberty and are usually installed in large numbers side-by-side. There are growing concerns however that the technology simply doesn’t work and could be an expensive venture that spoils landscapes, kills wildlife, and does not generate nearly enough energy to run a modern Western economy. In 2020, only 6% of the world’s electricity was generated by wind. The machines are manufactured using fossil fuel power, and they are disposed of in landfills – facts that betray the clean-energy mantra of wind power promoters and propagandists.
In Europe, the United Kingdom’s government under Boris Johnson said that country would be the “Saudi Arabia of wind.” Johnson said every home would be powered by wind by 2030. However, despite hundreds of millions of dollars of taxpayer money being paid to wind-power companies, the energy needed is not being generated and must be backed up by natural gas.
In America, California is the leading “green-energy” state. Energy derived from coal and gas has collapsed and been replaced by wind and solar power, which tripled between 2008 and 2017. The result has been electricity blackouts and an unstable power supply. In 2020, officials asked people to reduce their power usage during a heat wave, the cost of energy has risen six times higher than in the rest of the United States, and Californians have been warned that blackouts will double in the next 15 years, and double again in the 15 years after that.
