The Wind Farm Scam: An Ecologist's Evaluation

This book argues that the drawbacks of wind power far outweigh the advantages. Wind turbines cannot generate enough energy to reduce global CO2 levels to a meaningful degree; what's more, wind power cannot generate a steady output, necessitating back-up coal and gas power plants that significantly negate the saving of greenhouse gas emissions. In addition, there are ecological drawbacks, including damage to habitats, wildlife and the far from insignificant aesthetic considerations. Dr. Etherington argues that wind power is being excessively financed at the cost of consumers who have not been informed that their bills are subsiding an industry that cannot be cost efficient or, ultimately, favour the cause it purports to support.
