Wind Turbines: bonfires-on-a-stick

4th Sep 10

The above image shows the second most common problem (after blade failure) that affects wind turbines: fire. This happens when transmission failures occur in these constructions. To date no gear oil has been invented to withstand the pressures produced within these transmissions. Recently, the U.S. government gave Dow-Corning a big grant to work on it. Previously, many others had tried and failed. Of course our idiotic politicians did not think about all that fibreglass and a little heat would cause such a bonfire with taxpayers’ money! With a little bit of thought would of course they Climate Change scammers should have realised that wind turbines are in fact a magnet – or literally an electro-magnet – for lightening. Stuck up on a steel structure with a large electro-magnetic field they will of course attract every lightening bolt head their way. With pyrotechnic combination of inflammable glass-fibre and 200 off gallons of transmission fluid they are bonfires on a stick. Watching one of these burn would be an impressive sight. The generator is too high for most fire tenders to reach with the water pressure they have.
