Wind power: whose prodest? (Addendum to “The Golgotha”).

(… the previous post, in which I compared two Golgothas, the original, symbol of the redemption of humanity from evil, and its parody, symbol of the redemption of humanity from the fossil, produced some interesting comments, which they bring us closer, of course, to cui prodest. Because a cui prodest , if you were schooled in the 20th century, you know there has to be, and to find it you have to follow the money …)

Enrico Pesce left a new comment on your post " I Golgota ":

The issue of wind turbines has worried me since the first ones appeared in Collarmele at the end of the 90s. When green madness had not yet appeared on the media horizon, those giants on the ridges, highly visible from the motorway, overnight disfigured the landscape I had always been used to. And seeing them almost always motionless, only some in very slow movement, I wondered even then why the mountains had become so disturbed, for a result that seemed laughable. It was ENEL's first wind farm in Italy. Since then they have multiplied. There were protests too, but the usual Don Quixotes lost across the board.

From the somewhat dated analyzes of the Region it seems that my doubts were well founded. Those first plantings weigh heavily on the landscape and produce little. Defined obsolete already after 10 years, however they continue to be as ugly as the first day, witnesses of a premature and unreasonable transition.

The document, yes, is dated, but still interesting. I would draw your attention to Table 4.2:

Merely as an impromptu update: in the Tocco system the blades have gone from 2 to at least 5 in the meantime (if I remember correctly: I pass every time but I prefer to look at the road, it's even more prudent…).

Conversely, the five shovels in the Palena-Sangro site are those, inactive and defined as "industrial archeology" by a friend of mine who mayor of the area, clearly visible from the Porrara crest, and are the only ones to disfigure the Sangro-Aventine, thanks to the opposition of another brave mayor that I met and that I don't want to name (because I can't associate it with my blasphemy, of course). It must be said that in terms of archeology the Sangro-Aventine (the plateau between Aventine to the north and Sangro to the south) would offer much better:

and it must also be said that, unfortunately, if the Sangro-Aventine has not been extremely disfigured, its southern horizons, those of the Trigno-Sinello, have however been devastated.

( … incidentally: the Romans built over a thousand meters in height because despite not having snow plows or technical clothing they did not fear the cold for reasons that the media involuntarily blurt out from time to time, as in this and this case, achieving an end which is not part of their terrorist intentions… )

But apart from these slight anachronisms, the table is very useful because it clarifies that out of 282 blades installed at the time, 72% were German ( Enercon and Gamesa ) and 9% Danish ( Vestas ). Warning you that I did the math quickly (perhaps check them), I think you understand well enough why ever from the German-powered EU such prompt pressures come to replace faith in Christ with that in Aeolus.

San Bonifacio has done, and the EU undoes.

The story is not straightforward, but when you come back from the start, you pay the price…
