Wind turbine blades, which the Biden campaign touted as “clean energy,” pile up in landfills because they cannot be easily crushed, reused or recycled.
To demonstrate the size of a typical blade, here is the video of a blade being moved on the highway:
Because of their size, the worn blades are cut into three pieces and buried 30 feet deep in a landfill.
“The wind turbine blade will be here, ultimately, forever,” waste consultant Bob Cappadona told Bloomberg. “Most landfills are considered dry graves.”
This is because the blades are designed to be hurricane resistant and not biodegradable. In fact, they’re constructed with fiberglass so strong that disposal crews are forced to use diamond-tipped saws to cut them.
“Tens of thousands of aging blades descend from steel towers around the world and most have nowhere to go except in landfills,” Bloomberg reported. “In the United States alone, approximately 8,000 will be eliminated in each of the next four years.”
“… It will get worse: most were built over ten years ago, when the facilities were less than a fifth of what they are today.”
In short, wind turbines have a major impact on the environment which critics say is generally downplayed by his supporters, such as Joe Biden who pushed wind turbines as “clean energy” in the Third Presidential Debate.
“A lot of people don’t realize it, but wind turbines need oil to run,” the Center of the American Experiment joked. “Oil, which is often demonized by wind power advocates, is used to reduce friction in the wind turbine.”
“It also keeps the transmission clean and protects the metal surfaces from corrosion, according to Wind Power Engineering. Oil is also flammable. “
The outlet also reported that wind turbines are not profitable on their own due to their installation costs, loss of efficiency after 10 years, average service life of 20 years, and cost. elimination.
“Wind power depends entirely on government grants to be profitable,” added the Center of the American Experiment. “Investors like Warren Buffett know this, and the wind industry does too, which is why they are constantly pushing for the extension of the wind power tax credit.”
