How 30,000 Industrial Wind Turbines Have Wrecked Germany’s Environment

Spread the love


Germany has been overrun with 30,000 giant industrial wind turbines and millions of solar panels. Its climate cult reckons that the wholesale environmental destruction wreaked so far is all about saving the planet. It’s an argument that holds all the logic of amputating an entire leg to prevent a septic toe from doing any further damage – when a dose of penicillin would do the trick.

Michael Moore’s Planet of the Humans managed to lift the lid on green hypocrisy, focusing on the raft of inconvenient truths behind the greatest economic and environmental fraud of all time. Now, a growing number of Germans are starting to catch on.

Serious studies have shown that Germany’s climate has changed as a result of its grand wind and solar transition, but not for the better: Climate Changing: Germany’s 30,000 Wind Turbines Causing Local Rainfall Droughts

As Pierre Gosselin outlines below, there has been a radical shift in attitude among Germany’s academic class, and it’s all down to the local weather.

Expert Prof. Gerd Ganteför Calls For More Studies On The Regional Climate Impact By Wind Turbines

German online here reports on Gerd Ganteför, a German professor of experimental physics who taught at the University of Konstanz and Johns Hopkins University Baltimore (USA), among others. He has authored some 150 technical articles on renewable energies or climate change.

Ganteför has been an outspoken expert critic of Germany’s energy policy and the alarmist aspects of climate science.
Recently the renowned expert once again asked uncomfortable questions about possible connections between wind parks and their impact on regional climate. The answers Ganteför gave to the German daily “Nordkurier” have raised some eyebrows.

In summary, the physicist warns: “We don’t currently know what all can happen if we continue to put up countless wind turbines.”
The interview was prompted by a 2012 NASA study that suggested large wind farms in particular lead to an increase in the ambient temperature and are thus partly responsible for the warming of the climate.

Though Ganteför, has some doubts about this phenomenon, he nevertheless believes the “connection between wind turbines and global warming is possible – albeit for a reason not examined in the study,” reports  “The authors were able to show that wind turbines swirl the cool layers of air that are directly above the ground and the somewhat warmer layers above them, and that this leads to an increase in temperature near the ground.”

Proven in other scientific publications
Ganteför, however, focusses on another aspect: evaporation, which has been proven in other publications.

The mechanism goes as follows: “Large wind turbines logically slow down the wind by sapping the energy out of it. Less wind means less evaporation and thus less precipitation. And if it gets drier, it could just happen that it gets warmer.”

study of this kind by Deutsche Windguard was reported on by in July 2022.

Overdoing wind energy
Moist air from the North Atlantic plays a major role on Europe’s climate, and eventually makes its way over the sea to Germany. But that air gets slowed down by the relatively large wind farms in Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania, says Ganteför. The possible consequence: “If you overdo it with too many wind turbines”, the region “will become drier” and “this possible scenario needs to be meticulously played out and studied by climatologists.”

“We don’t know at the moment what all can happen if we continue to put up countless wind turbines,” warns Ganteför.

New studies warn
Germany has so far installed over 30,000 wind turbines, which is about 1 every 11 sq. km. Plans are calling for doubling or even tripling the current wind power capacity. But this may be detrimental as new studies show that wind farms are altering local climates, and thus may be having an effect on global climate and contributing to regional droughts. We reported on this here earlier this month.

Austrian Biochemical Engineer: “No Energy Production Method Is More Damaging Than Wind Turbines”

As Germany and Austria rush to wean themselves off fossil fuels like coal and natural gas to produce electricity and replace them with weather-dependent wind and solar energy, the countries aim to substantially expand their fleet of wind turbines by 2040. Many would have to be installed near homes and in sensitive wildlife areas. e.g.the 1,000 -year-old Reinhard Forest.

In the AUF 1 interview, Hammer comments on the effectiveness and usefulness of wind power plants and offers a completely different view of what the entrenched politicians claim.

Damaging the local environment
Hammer explains that one problem with wind turbines is that hey extract a massive amount of kinetic energy from the wind, which in turn leads to a windspeed reduction downstream from the wind park and air layers getting mixed. The higher layers of wind end up getting mixed with the layers near the surface. “Colder layers are getting mixed with warmer layers and that is having dramatic effects on the temperature, humidity, and on evaporation,” which leads to “drier conditions and even drought.”

Currently the lion’s share of Germany’s 30,000 installed wind turbines are located across the north, where drought conditions have occurred over the past years.

“Economic nonsense”
When asked about how realistic it would be to quickly go 100% renewable, Hammer characterized the idea as “economic nonsense, saying it would require an additional 19,000 turbines and large swaths of land that just aren’t available in Austria.
