    Trouble is no one wants to read this type of article to find out just how useless wind turbines are and how they contribute to CO2 emissions. All they hear is wind power and think wonderful instead of researching and making an informed decision. The first wind farm built in NSW Australia supplies only 12% energy instead of 30-35%. The rest you cannot ge any information about their capacity to generate energy. They do not store energy and need 24/7 backup from some other form e.g. gas, coal. The only reason they are built is because of government subsidies as one developer stated to a host farmer.There are better forms of renewables and “industrial wind turbines” is not one of them. They are nothing short of ‘environmental vandals.’
