German Wind Farm to Be Demolished for Coal Mine

Originally, the plan was to suppress efficient energy production, lavishly subsidize inefficient green energy boondoggles, posture self-righteously about adoration of the climate, and then covertly import fossil fuels from Russia. Current events have derailed this approach. As winter approaches, Europeans face a choice between green moonbattery and keeping their houses warm. It is encouraging to see that some are choosing wisely:

German energy giant RWE is tearing down wind turbines to expand a neighboring coal mine in an effort to deal with the country’s energy crisis. The area of the wind farm near the small town of Lützerath will be used to expand the Garzweiler open pit mine in the state of North Rhine-Westphalia.

Any local eagles and hawks that survived the wind turbines will rejoice, as will taxpayers forced to subsidize these hideous tokens of leftist virtue signaling.

In addition, RWE will reactivate three lignite-fired coal units that were previously on standby.

Finally, some movement in the direction of sanity. Now if Germany can just turn back the leftist attack on nuclear energy, it might be able to keep the lights on.

Germany’s cabinet approved the decision to revive the unused coal units after energy prices skyrocketed because of the sanctions issued due to the Russian invasion of Ukraine.

North Rhine-Westphalia and RWE had previously declared they would stop using fossil fuels by 2030.

It is easy to declare that after such and such a date only pixie dust will be permitted for power generation. When reality hits, moonbats will quietly switch to showcasing their righteous orthodoxy on some other issue.

On a tip from Wiggins.
