Winds snap turbine like a matchstick

good goin' windmill d00ds.






People in the Grand Étang area of Nova Scotia's Inverness County tweeted photos and video of a wind turbine, whose main trunk was snapped clean in two, with the leftover blade apparatus lying at its base.


A wind warning was in effect for the area at the time, and though coastal wind gusts in the 70-100 km/h range are possible in western Nova Scotia as the day wears on, Cape Breton could be lashed with winds in excess of 140 km/h, according to Environment Canada.

That's the part of the country where you hang a chain out the window and measure the angle to determine how windy it is.

You can say climate change isn't happening all you want.

Around here, the weather has changed so much, it's obvious to SEE it's real.

I love when deniers get their panties in a twist and find excuses to say it doesn't happen.

Anticipated wind for that area was 160+. Don't think wind mills are meant to stand up to winds that high. Especially ones in that design. Perhaps the internal turbine, pole type ones would be better.

the planet's climate has always changed. is changing and will change again.

but it has nothing to do with man.

pollution bad...yes. let's clean that sh!t up.

agw brainwashing worse. nefarious and super super costly.

Too windy for a windmill.

Those things are useless.

As long as no anti oil protesters were hurt in the process it is OK.

In winds of 60km/h and up whirlygigs lock up and become sails. -25C they are locked as well. Cold is NFG and breaks them.

Especially when you put them in incredibly f*cking stupid locations that routinely see hurricane force winds.

And that bolded part right there is why you're an idiot and the idea of logic just doesn't work with you.

And you thinking AGW...I mean climate change...er, I mean whatever the fack it's being called today, is true show how much of a brain-dead idiot you are. Maybe you would like to buy a bridge and some waterfront property in central Florida I've got for sale.

That doesn't mean that man's activity doesn't have any impact on the climate.

Only fools think we have dominion over the climate.

There is nothing man can do to stop the climate from changing.

Sure thing...we have about the same impact on the rise and fall of the tides and the rotation of the earth and the orbit of the moon. You guys are all soooo stupid. Wanna buy a bridge in London?

Sure there is . We can give our respective governments more of our hard earned money . That works so well for every thing else . We have alcohol tax , cigarette tax , gas tax , GST , PST , battery disposal fee , tire disposal fee , road tolls , medical premiums and on and on . But giving the government more for carbon pricing is supposed to do something for the climate . The only thing it is going to do , is suck down into the giant sinkhole and change the climate of our wallets , for the worse .

But that is what we can and will do because people like Serryah demand it . She must not work in the private sector .

You subscribe to the 'it's so big, we can't affect it' theory.


That's nice for you. It's not true, but if it helps you sleep at night, keep on keepin on.

Hey TP, We still aren't as warm as when Columbus landed in the Western Hemisphere 525 years ago but 2016 was the hottest year "on record"?

If "the record" is limited to data collected at railway stations since the 1850s, it only means it is the hottest year since the 1850s.

How many railway stations were gathering weather data globally in 1850?

How many railway stations in Botswana in 1850 or Chile in 1850, China? Siberia?

Enough to create a global record or enough to let a train engineer know what to expect at the next station 45 miles ahead?

What do the CPR records have for Moose Jaw in July 12 of 1870?

A blank because their was no Moose Jaw or train in Western Canada in 1870 collecting data for "the record" therefore there is no record.

How far forward would you have to jump to get enough data from enough stations globally?

50-60 years? 80-90 years?

The start of feasible global data compilation came to be around the same year Ford quit making the Model A.

Do you still think it's the hottest year ever and man did it or is it merely the hottest year in the past 95-100 years?

Ecofascists won't step outside their tiny, limited box they call the record.


This last little blast of warming taking us back to average could end tommorow plunging us back into glaciation.

No matter what the only sure bet in climate is the next ice age which is the standard climate for the past millions upon millions of years.


Enjoy it while you can.
