Green businesses are modifying large turbines to make them less productive, because perverse government subsidies reward machines that produce less energy at nearly double the rate of more efficient ones. It’s extraordinarily profitable for a few beneficiaries, even if it clutters the countryside and does little to save the planet.
It’s already depressing to see a massive turbine scar the countryside. It’s worse when you know these some of these machines are far larger and less productive than they should be.
Saving the world, one shredded bird at a time…
