UK: Wind farm noise: a government cover-up

James Delingpole — The Telegraph (UK) — December 3, 2013 How good it was seeing wind industry skullduggery exposed on the front page of today’s Telegraph. But there’s plenty more where that came from, I can assure you. The way the noise regulations governing the wind industry have been rigged by vested interests is one […]

James Delingpole: Climate alarmists have lost the debate — it’s time we stopped indulging their poisonous fantasy

James Delingpole — The Telegraph — October 6, 2013 The story so far: with the release of its Fifth Assessment Report, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change has proved beyond reasonable doubt that it cannot be taken seriously.

Judas List: Is it time to ‘out’ these greedy landowners and ostracize them for their complicity

Delingpole: Wind turbines are an iniquitous assault on property rights

James Delingpole — The Telegraph (UK) — August 23, 2013 I’m writing these words in what was formerly one of the loveliest valleys in all of Wales. To be fair, the Edw valley still is pretty spectacular. But this year, for the first time in the decade or more I’ve been holidaying here, I no […]

Another day, another wind industry scandal

James Delingpole — The Telegraph — July 14. 2013 What’s the difference between a left-wing investigative journalist and a right-wing investigative journalist? Simple: the left-wing variety wins Pulitzer prizes (a la Woodward and Bernstein), or gets feted ad nauseam in Private Eye (Paul Foot), or gets given endless documentaries on Channel 4 (John Pilger); the […]

James Delingpole: Wind farms — Ceausescu would have loved ’em

The Telegraph — June 19, 2013 Wind farms are like one of those frustratingly unripened boils: you know that you shouldn’t keep squeezing but they’re so noxious and irritating and hideous that you just can’t resist.

James Delinpole — Worse is better

The Telegraph — March 24, 2013 My original headline for this piece was I. BLOODY. TOLD. YOU. SO! but I’ll save that for another occasion. All I wanted to note, really, was that these last few days the argument appears to have been going very much my way. I’m thinking of Charles Moore in the […]

James Delingpole — “Bat-chomping, bird-slicing Eco Crucifixes”

Ricochet — January 5, 2013 It’s hard to pick which aspect of the global green movement disgusts me most: really, we’re spoilt for choice.

James Delingpole — Wind industry big lies # 3: wind turbines are eco-friendly

The Telegraph — January 5, 2013 Of all the many lies put out by the subsidy-troughing scum-suckers of the wind industry and their greenie fellow travellers, the biggest porkie of the lot is this: that wind turbines are eco-friendly.

James Delingpole – The Telegraph — November 19, 2012 There’s an excellent article in the Copenhagen Post which I’m going to reprint here in full.

(UK) Wind industry big lies no. 2: your property values will not be affected…

James Delingpole — The Telegraph — September 20, 2012 “….And there’s no direct evidence that they affect house prices, in fact the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors says they don’t….” This is a quote – a genuine quote: not one devised by his enemies to satirise the outrageous absurdity of the wind industry’s specious claims […]
