To the climate change deniers who can’t add 1 and 1. Wind turbines pay back their costs after a few years and save thousands of tons of CO2 during their lifetimes. https://www.politifact.com/factchecks/2021/oct/12/viral-image/actually-wind-turbines-easily-produce-more-power-i/

2021-10-08 Colossal 16 MW Offshore Wind Turbine

MingYang’s newest wind turbine << A single MySE 16.0-242 turbine will generate 80,000 MWh of electricity annually. It will produce 45% more energy than MingYang’s previous turbine model, the MySE 11.0-203. One of these turbines will be able to eliminate more than 1.6 million metric tons of carbon dioxide emissions over the course of its

2021-09-28 German Offshore Wind Farms; Recycling Blades

The narrator goes to the offshore wind turbine to show us a 6.2 MW wind turbine. The key takeaway is that these offshore wind turbines solve the wind turbine intermittency problem because it’s windy as hell out there 24 hours, 365 days a year. He said the transmission line to southern Germany was supposed to
