Underground Action Calendar refreshed

Our Underground Action Calendar lists attacks from as far back as the 1970s, to inspire and serve as a research tool. We include a variety of actions from around the world, some carried out by individuals, some by organized militant groups. Targets range from local earth-destroying construction equipment to networks of oil wells and pipelines. … Continue reading Underground Action Calendar refreshed

Park City is Damned: A Case Study in Civilization

March 24th, 2017 — The San Diego Free Press A Note to My Readers: It has not been easy to write this essay and I am scared to see my name displayed publicly next to what follows. I am sure these ideas will win me few friends in Park City and the broader ski community. … Continue reading Park City is Damned: A Case Study in Civilization

Investigating the Lake Turkana Wind Power Project

By Intercontinental Cry Lake Turkana Wind Power is the largest private investment in Kenya’s history. Danish and international companies and investors have already sunk millions of euros into the project. But they now await a court decision that will determine whether the land on which the turbines will be built was illegally acquired. Most communities … Continue reading Investigating the Lake Turkana Wind Power Project

Kim Hill: What’s Wrong with Renewable Energy?

Ten things environmentalists need to know about renewable energy: 1. Solar panels and wind turbines aren’t made out of nothing. They are made out of metals, plastics, chemicals. These products have been mined out of the ground, transported, processed, manufactured. Each stage leaves behind a trail of devastation. ... Continue reading →

Green Technology and Renewable Energy: The Deep Green Resistance Perspective

Few topics generate more commentary on our page than critiques of alternative energy. For many, solar, wind, and other non-fossil energy sources and technologies represent a pragmatic hope for saving the biosphere. Our position on these technologies is that they represent a false hope for a couple of reasons. One: their manufacturing processes are fossil-fuel … Continue reading Green Technology and Renewable Energy: The Deep Green Resistance Perspective

Energy and CO2 emissions for one wind turbine is disturbing

This very impressive research and analysis on the energy requirements and the CO2 emissions for one wind energy capturing device (wind turbine) should be sobering, and disturbing – just the rebar and concrete used for the base of a 2.5 megawatt structure! This, on top of enormous and ongoing land destruction for so-called wind farms. … Continue reading Energy and CO2 emissions for one wind turbine is disturbing

Sacred Water Under Threat

Storms chased us. Great, towering thunderstorms that came sweeping out of the west, lurking behind mountain ranges and flowing out across the valleys to drop great curtains of rain that soaked into the soil. That’s what this story is about: water. We came here, a group of us from many different places and backgrounds, to see the land that Nevada developers and Las Vegas real-estate moguls have been lusting after for twenty five years. But it’s not the land they want; it’s the water falling from these thunderstorms and melting off the fresh dusting of snow on the peaks, the water that soaks deep into stone and soil, forming basin aquifers. ...

Reality check on resource requirements of wind power

As we’ve pointed out in our Green Technology & Renewable Energy FAQs, so-called “clean” energy sources such as solar and wind become anything but, when harvested via industrial means. Each PV solar panel, each wind turbine, and every other proposal for generating electricity depends on mining, inherently destructive to the earth. In addition, each requires … Continue reading Reality check on resource requirements of wind power

Questioning allegiance to renewables

Deep Green Resistance recently posted a new set of FAQs on the main website, addressing the myths of Green Technology & Renewable Energy. In that same vein, here’s a first-hand observation of the impacts of supposedly “clean” wind turbines on a Scottish forest fragmented by the machines and their access roads. The article makes clear … Continue reading Questioning allegiance to renewables
