Denmark’s Wind Farm Revolt: Danes Demand & Get Ban on New Wind Turbines

Denmark is the home of the original eco-fascist profiteers – Vestas – the struggling turbine makerrun by by a band of crooks – once exhorted the world to “Act on (its parallel universe version of the) Facts”: paying $millions to the Australian Greens and Trotskyite fronts like Getup! & Co – pitching lies like the one about the noise from V112s being just like the noise from a fridge 500m away (see our post here).

Whacked with costly lawsuits from wind farm neighbours – in one case a court awarding Dkr 500,000 (A$93,439) in compensation for the substantial reduction in the value of the plaintiffs’ home, caused by incessant turbine noise – the wind industry did its best to collude with a then pliant government to extricate itself from further liability (see our post here).

The Danish wind industry then resorted to the wholesale destruction of homes in order to carpet the country in even more of these things – purchasing whole villages and then bulldozing them, such that they would not face any further legal liability to their victims (see our post here). What an admission from the perpetrators of this grand-scale human expulsion project?

Aren’t we forever being told how much everyone loves wind turbines and just can’t get enough of them? Why on earth would there be any kind of problem warranting the purchase of neighbours’ homes by Danish wind farm operators?

One theory pedalled by a former tobacco advertising guru is that opposition to the ‘joys’ of living with wind turbines is only a problem among English speaking countries: the guru reckons that complaints like those heard from dozens of wind farms around Australia are a cooked-up phenomenon exclusive to the English speaking world – as pitched-up in this piece of propaganda on ABC radio and parroted in this piece of eco-fascist drivel from ruin-economy (for a taste of what the Taiwanese – not the world’s strongest English speakers – think about these things, see our post here).

The last time STT visited Denmark, Danish was still the native tongue – although quite a few youngsters in Copenhagen spoke a half decent form of broken English. Or, perhaps, Danish is just a heavily accented English dialect?

Danes complain about precisely the same effects from the incessant low-frequency noise and infra-sound generated by wind turbines that Vestas’ victims at Macarthur in Victoria do (see our post here) and the video below:

 

Curious that Vestas and Siemens refused to be interviewed for the video?  Surely, here was a golden opportunity to toss up some more “wonderful facts” about their products?  But, we guess, it’s probably safer to keep your head down when you’re not in complete control of the final cut.

Despite the Danish wind industry’s efforts to downplay it, the resistance exhibited by Danes has spread with disastrous results for the likes of Vestas.

In a clearly unhelpful turn of events for the wind industry in Denmark (and elsewhere for that matter), the growing fury of wind farm neighbours has rattled local governments and forced them into action.

Danish municipality cancels plans for all onshore wind turbines – Resistance from residents behind ban

The planning and environmental committee for Esbjerg Municipality has brought a halt to anymore onshore wind farms being built inside its borders.

This kills plans for wind farms in Vilslev North, Kærbøl Mark and Lundmark. The three locations would have included a total of 34 wind turbines.

John Snedker, the head of the planning and environmental committee, said that resistance against wind farms has been exploding.

“Opponents, among other things, are uncertain whether the low-frequency noise affects health,” Sneaker told DR Nyheder.

“Our wind energy will come from offshore wind farms.”

People before turbines

The decision certainly pleased one resident, the fortunately-named Søren Wind, who lives in the village of Roager in Esbjerg Municipality.

“It’s quite a relief,” he said. “The politicians have let us citizens come first. I’m glad that’s over.”

Esbjerg followed in the footsteps of several other municipalities, including Vejen and Tønder, which have also dropped their wind turbine plans.

The decisions taken to ban turbines in Esbjerg, Vejen and Tønder prove that resistance is far from futile. Wherever you are, keep fighting. We will prevail. The Danes just did.
