Rural Germans Revolt Against Wind Power Roll-Out: Farmers Sabotage Wind Projects

STOP THESE THINGS

German wind farm

Far from being in love with these things – as the gullible press here would have us believe – the Germans that are forced to endure them, hate them just as much as everyone else in the World.

In this wrap up of a report from Die Welt by NoTricksZone, set-upon rural Germans have had – as we say ‘a gutful’ of the wind industry; and what comes with it.

Taking matters into their own gnarly, weathered hands, German farming communities are in open rebellion.

It’s an uprising that includes farmers blockading turbine construction sites with their tractors; and stealthy stormtroopers dropping a MET mast, used to measure wind speeds, that presage the threat of industrial wind turbine construction.

The destruction of MET masts is a pretty standard community defence tactic around the globe (see our posts here and here and here) – but, that taciturn and normally law-abiding Germans…

Tropical Pacific Islands Are Not Being Drowned By Rising Seas

NOT A LOT OF PEOPLE KNOW THAT

From Cato:

According to a conventional narrative, tropical islands are eroding away due to rising seas and increasingly devastating storms. Not really, according to the recent work of Ford and Kench (2016).

Writing as background for their study, the two researchers state that low-lying reef islands are “considered highly vulnerable to the impacts of climate change,” where an “increased frequency and intensification of cyclones and eustatic sea-level rise [via global warming] are expected to accelerate shoreline erosion and destabilize reef islands.” However, they note that much remains to be learned about the drivers of shoreline dynamics on both short- and long-term time scales in order to properly project future changes in low-lying island development. And seeking to provide some of that knowledge, the pair of New Zealand researchers set out to examine historical changes in 87 islands found within the Jaluit Atoll (~6°N, 169.6°E), Republic of…
