. . . the main pollutant will be well over 200,000 tonnes of concrete that will make the turbine bases and other installations for the Viking Energy windfarm.
If the Viking Energy windfarm is built, water run-off carrying leachate from the alkali concrete turbine bases can pollute the acid heather, lochs and grassland.
When the windfarm comes to the end of its very short life, or goes bust (whichever is the sooner), the land won't be reinstated.
Turbines, pylons and huts above the ground can be removed, but 200,000 tonnes of alkali concrete in the bases will remain to act as 103 unstoppable alkali cancer centres; each spreading outward on the acid environment of central mainland.
It is broadly accepted that wind turbines do not emit CO2 at the point of generation. However, in common with all types of power station, it is emitted during their construction and, through damage directly inflicted on the construction site, over a much longer period.
Can You Make a Wind Turbine Without Fossil Fuels?
It has been revealed that the published decommissioning programmes have very dissimilar decommissioning timings and costs per MW installed, motivating further research into the decommissioning programmes.
. . .
This paper has found that the published decommissioning programmes are often optimistic regarding time and cost.
All animals and insects who have these abilities could be reading and mistaking the anthropogenic electromagnetic fields created by all these massive green energy projects as if it was a realigning of Earth's own magnetic field, more so over the area where earth's magnetic field is weaker.
He is best known as the "whistle-blower" who was sacked from the Central Electricity Generating Board's Berkeley Nuclear Laboratories in 1983 for exposing the links between the United Kingdom civil and military nuclear programmes.
