 Here's something to ponder while digesting the Christmas fare:

It's time the media gave more prominence to this.


  1. Thank you for posting my paper on your site. I would just like the following additional information . . .

    Windmills are the Ultimate in Embedded Costs and environmental destruction. Each weighs 1,688 tons (the equivalent of 23 houses) and contains 1,300 tons of concrete, 295 tons of steel (14.5 % Global CO2 is from concrete and steel), 48 tons of iron, 24 tons of fiberglass, and the hard to extract rare earths neodymium-Boron, praseodymium, and dysprosium. Each blade weighs 81,000 pounds and will last 15 to 20 years, at which time it must be replaced. We cannot recycle used blades.

    There may be a place for these technologies, but first we must look beyond the myth of Zero Emissions. I predict EVs and windmills will be abandoned once the embedded environmental costs of making and replacing and operating them become public. Once it becomes Clear that 28 % of the Electricity is lost as HEAT between production of Electricity and having a fully charged battery . . . For that Electric Car. Size for size Electric Cars burn at least 15% more CO2 than Gas Cars . . .

    I am trying to do my part with these comments. Bringing ‘The Embedded Costs’ of Going Green to light, but those who never ask . . . will never know. Then there are the ‘Greenies’ who do not want to Know ?

  2. Thanks for posting your comments. I believe the public are being kept away from these truths which will only come to light when they are faced with the consequences themselves in terms of facing power cuts, massive electricity and gas price increases and vehicles that are not fit for purpose due to inadequate batteries. The day of reckoning is fast approaching!
