That's a single issue web site devoted to the idea that wind power is a fraud. Do you know who runs or funds the site?
"Principal amongst the German green’s concerns is what to do with more than 90,000 turbine blades; each of which weighs up to 15 tonnes; each of which cannot be recycled; each of which has been deemed hazardous waste."
Recycling is commercially available in Germany: eg:https://www.roth-international.de/en/recycling-recovery/recycling-of-wind-turbines/
and is an active area of research and development in the UK:https://www.strath.ac.uk/whystrathclyde/news/2021/akeroffshorewindakerhorizonsandstrathclydetocollaborateonrecyclingglassfibreproducts/
And of course as with all other technologies the plans and costs for doing this should be assessed and publicised before they're built.
"Legacy of waste, breathtaking stupidityFuture generations will wonder how dumb their ancestors must have been to opt for a form of energy that blighted the landscape, destroyed ecosystems over vast areas, killed avian wildlife, was an unreliable and expensive energy source, made nearby residents sick and left millions and millions of tonnes of waste behind."
I must have missed the point in the article where the author started talking about coal mining.

Thank you Jonathan.
Stop These Things seems to have been going for about 10 years now, funded by anonymous trusts, with no doubt some vested interest somewhere in the funding path: https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2013/feb/15/media-campaign-windfarms-conservatives https://www.sourcewatch.org/index.php/%22Stop_These_Things%22
Nicely done Jonathan. Thanks...

"World’s first wind turbine with recyclable blades is up and spinning"
Resin, fibreglass and wood!
