Wind turbines are giant, stupid, dangerous, endangered bird-slaughtering, oil-leaking wastes of money in most parts of the world, at least at this stage of technological development. Perhaps that changes down the road, but for now, coal-powered energy is king, and no matter how much they hate it, the progressive left climate warriors, even in Germany, know it’s true.
Fox Business explains:
One of the wind farm’s eight wind turbines was dismantled last week, and two others are expected to be taken down next year. The remaining five turbines will be dismantled by the end of 2023, said a spokesperson for the company that builds and runs the wind farm.
The report detailed specifics regarding expanding coal mining operations:
The expansion comes in tandem with a plan to temporarily return three of RWE’s lignite-fired coal units to the market, a decision that was approved by Germany’s cabinet. The units were previously on standby.
“The three lignite units each have a capacity of 300 megawatts (MW). With their deployment, they contribute to strengthening the security of supply in Germany during the energy crisis and to saving natural gas in electricity generation,” RWE said in September.
