In this book, the author argues that wind turbines cannot generate enough energy to reduce global CO2 levels to a meaningful degree. The intermittent nature of wind power cannot generate a steady output, a reality necessitating back-up from coal- and gas-power plants which significantly negates any saving of greenhouse gas emissions.
In addition to the inefficacy of wind power there are ecological drawbacks, including damage to habitats and wildlife whilst there is the far-from-insignificant aesthetic drawback of the assault upon natural beauty which wind turbines entail. What's more, wind power is being excessively financed at the cost of consumers who neither have been consulted nor informed that this subsidy is being paid from their bills to support an industry that cannot be cost efficient nor, ultimately, favour the cause it purports to support.
