Wind2050: A Dystopian Society? (Vestas, et al. go Orwellian against anti-windpower grassroots)

By Mark Duchamp -- March 4, 2014

“From Ireland to New Zealand and Massachusetts to Wisconsin, there is growing outrage among rural and semi-rural homeowners about the encroachment of massive wind projects. The European Platform Against Windfarms now lists some 600 signatory organizations from 24 countries. In the U.K. — where fights are raging against industrial wind projects in Wales, Scotland, and elsewhere — some 300 anti-wind groups have been formed. Meanwhile, here in the U.S., about 150 anti-wind groups are active.”

The World Council for Nature (WCFN) was founded September 20, 2011, to defend Nature against aggression–and perhaps none more egregious than the dilute energy sprawl of wind turbines enabled by government-qua-man. “Everybody needs beauty as well as bread, places to play in and pray in, where nature may heal and give strength to body and soul,” John Muir once said.

And what would Muir think of his Sierra Club today, pitting Washington, DC-alligator-shoed environmentalists against the grassroots who encounter the crony wind turbine industry in the wilds? WCFN recently was informed that Danish taxpayers’ money is being spent to the tune of €2,665,688 ($480,000) to spy on associations and citizens’ groups of windfarm victims (present or potential). The name of the program is “Wind2050 – Multidisciplinary study on local acceptance and development of wind power projects.” It is administered chiefly by the Danish multinational company Vestas, the Danish government, and Denmark’s Aarlborg University. Its aim is to break the resistance of windfarm neighbors and opponents to Big Wind in Denmark and around the world. Note: in Denmark alone there are more than 200 associations of neighbors fighting the windfarm scourge, and Vestas’s profits have taken a big plunge. The anti-democratic nature of this surveillance and targeting of windfarm victims is disturbing. WCFN warns that the obsession of the Danish government with wind farms, anchored as elsewhere in the world in the financing needs of political parties, is driving it dangerously close to paternalistic totalitarianism. Wind2050 Web-Link Maps Below: a map that the Wind2050 study has made of the web-links that connect most of the world’s windfarm victim groups to each other. It is a form of saying: we have identified the enemy, here he is. The CIA would proceed likewise with al Qaeda. W2050 - spying on citizens WCFN wishes to remind the public that the worst crimes against nature are or have been perpetrated by political regimes which are not balanced by effective counter-powers such as investigative media and an independent judicial system. In the former Soviet Union, the Sea of Aral was practically erased from the map by the regime’s obsession with cotton production. In very much the same way, the Golden Eagle, other raptors and extremely useful species of bats are being wiped out from countries like the UK and the US because of their governments’ obsession with wind farms. The much feared Orwellian society is dawning upon us, and “green shirts” are in the process of taking control of our lives, complete with “smart meters”, “smart grids” and imbecilic directives, with the help of self-serving politicians and pharaonic subsidies that corrupt anything they touch. “Orwellian” is an adjective describing “the societal condition that George Orwell identified as being destructive to the welfare of a free and open society. It connotes an attitude and a brutal policy of draconian control by propaganda, surveillance, misinformation, denial of truth…” (Wikipedia). in the crosshairs Conclusion Indeed, the denial of any of the ill-effects of wind turbines is particularly obvious in today’s society: denial of the harm done to residents, and to biodiversity, landscapes, tourism, property values, the economy, sovereign debt and the price of electricity. Paid propagandists troll the Internet with a mission: to drown wind farm opponents under a deluge of half-truths so as to whitewash their industry which is essentially non-performing, extremely costly and harmful to people and the environment. Are political correctness, corruption, and wind farms leading us to a dystopian society? ——————- Source An earlier version of this piece is here, information of which came from Windwahn.
