|Used Wind Turbine Blades?10-10-2019 21:36|
Interesting article, comments are pretty good too. Only thing they missed out, is how often these blades are expected to fail, lifespan for typical use. I'm sure wind farms in areas with large bird populations, will fail much quicker, least at first, but should get cut down, over time...
Of course, wind farms tend to be out in the sticks, near where inbred hillbillies live. Suppose there will be some heavy losses, do to target practice. Probably a lot of fun, even more fun with an AR15...
Basically, though, the blades are either fiberglass or carbon composite, which don't recycle easy, don't really rot. I like some of the ideas for cut them up for other uses, like building materials. I suggested they be used on the border wall...
|Hack-A-Day comments are being censored again... I've tamed my comments there, and still got deleted by the the greeners. I'm careful not to write anything offensive, and should be easy enough to validate with a simple web search. Guess point out weak points, isn't green enough for some, spoils the delusional fantasy.|
What's Hack-A-Day? Should I go there and get banned?

IB STILL hasn't explained what Planck's Law means. Just more hand waving that it applies to everything and more asserting that the greenhouse effect 'violates' it.- Ceist

Use to be sort of like recycling, upcycling junk, but cheap china kind of changed things. Now it's mostly college kids looking for their final year projects. Or people looking for potential commercial products, to steal. They have articles about renewable energy occasionally, comments get into climate change, of course, and anything not of a shade of green, gets reported and deleted. I still post some carefully worded stuff, that takes a few days to sink in to those that seek to delete, which is about as long as the article stays active anyway.
