'A group, including affected farmers, will take on planning minister Richard Wynne and the project's proponent West-wind Energy at trial after the $1.5 billion Golden Plains wind farm northwest of Geelong was ticked off by the state and federal governments. Objector Hamish Cumming, and Rokewood farmers Adam Walton and Kellie Walton, who are also behind the challenge, say the number of turbines included in the project should be reduced from 228 to about 130 to protect the brolga bird that breed in the area.'-Chad Van Estrop-Geelong Advertiser.
The underlying problem with solar and wind is that they are too unreliable and energy-dilute. Solar and wind farms require between 400 and 750 times more land than nuclear and natural gas plants. As we approach the limits of renewables, it seems inevitable that, over time, Democratic politicians will increasingly point to nuclear energy as the centerpiece of their plans for saving the climate, not solar panels and wind turbines.

Tasmania – Australia’s offshore wind farm? -Guest post by Tom Quirk and Paul Miskelly. Is it possible that Tasmania could become Australia’s offshore wind farm? A proposal by UPC Renewables  an international developer of wind farms, suggests that a 1000 MW wind farm could play on important role in moderating the intermittent supply of electricity from renewable resources.
POWER companies in Victoria are being forced to pay five times as much for electricity as they did three years ago and are now reliant on other states to keep the lights on. The Herald Sun can reveal Victoria flipped to taking more electricity from the rest of the country than it was exporting for the first time in 2018-19. It is also now a net importer along with South Australia — a state that has had some of the highest wholesale energy prices in the world in recent years. Federal Energy Minister Angus Taylor said he feared Victoria would face more blackouts this summer.
'The more people are aware of infrasound [Wind Turbine Signature/Pulsations, see comment below-DeFrock] the more objections will be made and then the authorities who are looking at wind farm applications will just have to take notice'- Paul Swift See an update on Paul Swifts' petition here; https://www.change.org/p/paul-swift-stop-all-wind-turbine-developments-until-infrasound-health-issues-have-been-investigated-67f152f1-112b-4164-a626-94b6d8e5ea2d/u/24557748?cs_tk=Ai7I81RCQ9WeAkDo31wAAXicyyvNyQEABF8BvEz5UtVK7fxwJEbMEk7-K5k%3D&utm_campaign=096bbfc3c8fd4c68958f3af04ad7bcdd&utm_medium=email&utm_source=petition_update&utm_term=cs Paul Swift has started a change.org Petition asking … Continue reading Updated Petition: Stop All Wind Turbine Projects Until “Infrasound” Health Issues Have Been Investigated.
