‘Dark satanic mills’: Tony Abbott continues his crusade against wind turbines

Former PM doesn’t want wind farms ‘spoiling our landscape’ and praises Angus Taylor for supporting coal-fired power

The former prime minister has continued his crusade against wind turbines, labelling them the “dark satanic mills of the modern era”.

Abbott, who was dumped at the 18 May election as the member for Warringah, had previously questioned the health impacts of wind turbines, despite there being no “consistent evidence that wind farms cause adverse health effects”. He has also previously dismissed them as “ugly”, “noisy” and “visually awful”.
