"Green energy" is just one giant grift operation.
From Bloomberg, "Wind Turbine Blades Can’t Be Recycled, So They’re Piling Up in Landfills":
A wind turbine's blades can be longer than a Boeing 747 wing, so at the end of their lifespan they can't just be hauled away. First, you need to saw through the lissome fiberglass using a diamond-encrusted industrial saw to create three pieces small enough to be strapped to a tractor-trailer.
Tens of thousands of aging blades are coming down from steel towers around the world and most have nowhere to go but landfills. In the U.S. alone, about 8,000 will be removed in each of the next four years. Europe, which has been dealing with the problem longer, has about 3,800 coming down annually through at least 2022, according to BloombergNEF. It’s going to get worse: Most were built more than a decade ago, when installations were less than a fifth of what they are now.Wind turbines really are the ultimate example of phony "liberal" environmentalism.
They're highly inefficient (only in the past few years was it realized there's such a thing as "wind shortages" and "wind droughts"), deadly to birds, disturbing to wildlife, loud as hell and completely destroy what would otherwise be picturesque scenes of nature.
Nonetheless, city-dwelling "liberals" glance at them out of the window of their Teslas and think they're beautiful.
