Wind generation gets the thumbs down from One Nation senator

Senator Malcolm Roberts told a meeting of Lakeland residents on Sunday he was surprised the developers of a massive windfarm project would have advised them there was no government requirement to conduct public notification or consider public submissions.

The One Nation Senator visited Lakeland at the request of landowner Joy Marriott, one of the closest neighbours to be affected by 35 towers, up to 240 metres high.

In a letter from the proponents, Windlab, residents were told the Department of Infrastructure, Local Government and Planning is currently assessing the development application for the wind farm.

“They have confirmed with us that there is no requirement to conduct public notification or consider public submissions. However, you can still make a submission by writing to the Department ,”wrote spokesman, Joshua Petrass.

Ms Marriott said the company was not required to undertake an Environmental Impact Study, “yet when a Lakeland business applied to extend its accommodation facilities the council insisted on a very strict application process that involved an EIS and planning that will cost a lot of money.

“I had to do a similar process when I started my now nearly completed caravan park and it cost a lot of money, so I can’t see how a southern developer can come to Lakeland with a $200 million wind farm and not do an EIS or take any notice of objections.”

Wind-generated power did not receive top marks from Senator Roberts. He warned that the huge increase in power prices across the State was caused in part by subsidised renewable power.

A mining engineer by profession, Senator Roberts warned that wind power was not all it was made out to be.

“My research shows that wind power destroys the security of electricity supply because it is asynchronous (not occurring at the same time) and it destabilises electricity supply,” Senator Roberts explained.

“It relies on subsidies from taxpayers and can be harmful to physical and mental health as well as harm the environment, but it can also destroy property values.

“Wind towers are not aesthetically pleasant, but worst of all wind farms are based on a lie-Australian industry is not affecting the global climate.”

In the letter, Mr Petrass said Windlab seeks to partner with the community to bring economic development and investment in renewable energy.

  1. Robert Chapman

    Malcolm Roberts is a knuckle dragging Neanderthal that still thinks the Earth is flat but that aside whatever he says is irrelevant because he was a British citizen at the time of the election and after the High court shucks him out of parliament he’ll be just as silent as the silent minority he represents!

    • Oh dear God, Robert is back with his inept monologue comparable to the exploits of gaia, the earth goddess, the pagans of a society that degenerated into oblivion about 600 or more years ago. Can any of our readers advise him to again read Huxley’s ‘Brave New World’ or ‘The Doors of Perception’ written when humanist Huxley was blowing his brains with LSD. Hopefully Robert will post his obtuse comments in Pravda or the Tribune rather than this blog.Ed

  2. I’ve been off-grid for thirty years – Senator Roberts is not fit to be in any leadership position. Shame on those who voted for this person. He is a total ignoramus. My power bill has been below $50 per month (costs over twenty years for solar, etc., with storage). And it will be much cheaper from now on because of better technology and lower prices. This senator is a professional liar, as are most politicians. And for all this time I have never had a local (by me) unplanned power outage! 100% reliable, while my distant neighbours sat in the dark on the dead grid.
