    Wind turbines have emergency exits, but they might not be for the reason you think. • Thanks to Octopus Energy: octopus.energy/octopus-fan-club/ (This video isn't sponsored, but obviously they did let me go up their wind turbine.)

I couldn't find a way to fit this into the video, but rather wonderfully, this turbine is called Octopus Energy's "#1 Fan". Thanks to all the team there, and the rope access team at EWT. This wasn't sponsored, and Octopus had no control over the final video, but obviously they did let me go up their conveniently-branded wind turbine in an effort to boost their brand. (If any other companies would like to show me around their conveniently-branded spectacular facilities, they should definitely get in touch...!)

Wind turbines are the biggest energy hoax/scam foisted on people in history. The minute they are designed, they are losing money. Any power engineer (I am not one) will tell you that it is impossible for a wind turbine to make more energy than it has consumed from design through manufacture and finally to installation. It is quite simple: there is not enough energy density in wind to make it a viable source of energy. That is an unarguable fact. Regardless of what liberals and tree huggers tell us, wind turbines use more energy than they could ever create. There is also pollution associated with their manufacture. Sorry...

WIND TURBINES ARE TERRIBLE!!!! Sure they make "clean" energy, but if one of the blades cracks, they cant be repaired. So they bury them and destroy thousands of square feet of farm land. And they never decompose. They also take so much concrete/cement to keep it standing up, that they destroy even more land.
