Thank you for the article Science deniers in the wind industry – The human health consequences of manipulated measurements by Helen Schwiesow Parker. I only have one exception to the article.
The electricity produced by Industrial Wind Turbines (IWTs) is grid poison. Analysts talk about the usable “dribble” and project that some can be salvaged for real use, but that is grace in the face of a very horrible lie. Conversion processes for this dribble are not functional, not green, and continue a most horrific delusion. Worst, too much of the power is grounded into the soil, at least in the Golden West and Limon and Lamar turbine arrays of Colorado, producing stray ground current and ground differential (ground is no longer ‘ground’). The capacitive field of the Golden West project isn’t just some 1.25 miles around the turbine array, it very definitely is extending on most sides closer to over two miles, varying with the composite of conditions that allow a capacitive field to form. Further, the companies know this, it is written into the contract with El Paso county that the field can cause problems at the fairgrounds, approximately 2.5 miles away from the nearest wind turbines of the array. This was exemplified in 2016 in which two people were struck by lightning at the fair. The company immediately shut off the turbines for several hours over the next storm days to dissipate the field effect and reduce the chances of those lightning strikes traveling the storm bank to find ground at such places as the fairgrounds.
Concerning the grid poison, Ercot of Texas came to the conclusion in 2014. They are hardly the only ones. Many of the wind companies that knew the problem retired their businesses, but corruption using engineering as a front and some lobbying of all of these industrialized countries has elevated a lot of nations to the level of fools.
It cannot be emphasized enough that a giant power plant whose product is dirty electricity due to the inherent nature of the collection process will poison the land. A lot more could be said, but most of it has, somewhere. One of the many, Wind Turbines Make Waves: Why Some Residents Near Wind Turbines Become Ill by Dr. Magda Havas and David Colling has a very interesting discussion by Mr. Colling.
