Windmill blades used for “Green Energy” are being buriedWhy?

Windmill blades used for “Green Energy” are being buried
Why?
Because these blades need to be disposed of, and there is
presently no way to recycle them. That’s how green energy
works! Who knew?
Maybe the people that make them knew. Why would they let
that cat out of the bag? After all, they are governmentsubsidized with tax-payer money (just like every electric car).
Also, politicians do not want those huge eyesores in their
backyard.
Right now, the average wind farm contains about 150 turbines.
Each wind turbine needs 80 gallons of oil as a lubricant, and
we’re not talking about vegetable oil, this is a PAO synthetic oil
based on crude. 12,000 gallons of it for 150 turbines, and that
oil needs to be replaced once a year. It is estimated that a little
over 3,800 turbines would be needed to power a city the size of
New York… That’s 304,000 gallons of refined oil per year for
just one city. That’s 25+ wind farms.
Now, you have to calculate every city across the nation, large
and small, to find the grand total of yearly oil consumption from
“clean” energy.
Where do you think all that oil is going to come from? Well,
since January 2021, it comes from our enemies in the Mideast.
Not to mention the fact that the large equipment needed to
build these wind farms runs on petroleum. As well as the
equipment required for installation, service, maintenance, and
eventual removal. And just exactly how eco-friendly is wind
energy anyway?
Each turbine requires a footprint of 1.5 acres, so a wind farm of
150 turbines needs 225 acres. To power a city the size of NYC,
you’d need 57,000 acres; and who knows the astronomical
amount of land you would need to power the entire US. All of
which would have to be clear-cut land because trees create a
barrier and turbulence that interferes with the 20mph sustained
wind velocity necessary for the turbine to work properly. Also,
keep in mind that not all states are suitable for such sustained
winds. Boy, cutting down all those trees is gonna upset a lot of
green-loving tree-huggers.
Let’s now talk about disposal.
The lifespan of a modern, top-quality, highly efficient wind
turbine is 20 years. After that, what happens to those gigantic
fibre composite blades?
They cannot be economically reused, refurbished, reduced,
repurposed, or recycled. So, it’s off to special landfills they go.
And, they’re already running out of these special landfill spaces
for the used blades that have already exceeded their
usefulness.
Those blades are anywhere from 120 ft. to over 200 ft. long,
and there are 3 per turbine. And that’s with only 3% to 7% of
the nation currently being supplied with (intermittent, i.e.,
unreliable) wind energy. Just imagine if we had the other 93%
of the nation on the wind grid… 20 years from now you’d have
all those unusable blades with no place to put them… Then 20
years after that, and 20 years after that, and so on. “Green
energy?”
Also, about 500,000 birds are killed each year from wind
turbine blade collisions, many of which are endangered hawks,
falcons, owls, geese, ducks, and eagles.
Apparently, smaller birds are more agile and able to dart and
dodge out of the way of the spinning blades, whereas the larger
soaring birds aren’t so lucky.
Here’s another problem with windmills.
The generator and switching equipment operate at high power
and voltage. Everything in the windmill nacelle (look it up) is
compact due to limited space, so there’s a danger of arcs and
electrical fires. This is prevented by putting all the electrical
equipment in a pressure vessel filled with sulfur hexafluoride
(SF6), a synthetic gas that has dielectric properties which
suppress arcs and fires.
However, windmills leak this gas, something around a pound
each per year. SF6 has an atmospheric lifetime of 3,200 years
and is 22,800 times more effective as a greenhouse gas than
carbon.
