Coal Rush: China, Japan & India Back Coal-Fired Future With Hundreds of New Plants

Reports of the ‘death’ of coal have been greatly exaggerated, with the economic powerhouses of Asia – China, Japan and India – building new plants hand over fist. The pattern across Asia is unmistakable; unreliable wind and solar have been snubbed in favour of coal-fired power plants, with new nuclear plants running a close second. […]

Want The World’s Most Expensive & Unreliable Electricity? Try Offshore Wind Power

The true cost of chaotically intermittent wind power is staggering; the cost of offshore wind power is astronomical. The capital cost of spearing these things offshore is multiples greater than doing so and some dimwitted farmer’s back paddock. Recouping that capital cost means that offshore wind power is 25 times more expensive than coal, gas or nuclear. […]

Power Brawl: Labor Backbenchers Revolt Over Ludicrous Wind & Solar Energy Targets

Having lost the un-loseable election in May last year, an angry rump of Labor backbenchers is keen to ditch the party’s suicidal renewable energy policies, with a view to recovering the ground they lost trying to win the sandalista vote in the inner city goat’s cheese circle. Australia’s economic future depends, in no small part, […]

Helplessly Hopeless: Australia’s Wind Industry Promises Big, But Never Delivers

It takes audacity to call yourself an ‘industry’ when you can’t say when you’ll deliver your product and its only ever delivered 30% of the time, at best. But that’s the business model upon which our wonderful wind powered future is predicated. Australia’s wind ‘industry’ is literally suffering a case of the doldrums, with its […]

No Contest: Never-Reliable Wind & Solar Can Never Match Ever-Reliable Nuclear

Wind power might be ‘free’, but try purchasing it, at any price, when the wind stops blowing; likewise with solar power when the sun drops over the horizon. Comparing weather dependent wind generation with sources available, around-the-clock, irrespective of the weather, is a game played by intellectual pygmies. There is, of course, no comparison. Good […]

Norway’s Reindeer Farmers Sue Swedish-German Wind Power Outfit To Save Their Herd

Rural communities are sick and tired of becoming roadkill for the wind industry, and that includes the nomadic Sami – who graze and herd reindeer across northern Europe’s frozen tundra, ranging across the north of Norway, Sweden, Finland and the Kola Peninsula. The fact that chaotically intermittent wind power can’t be delivered as and when […]

Heartless: Renewable Energy Advocates Hate the Poor & Want to Keep Them That Way

Since World War II affordable power was regarded as a birthright: RE obsessed virtue signallers have destroyed that notion in a heartbeat. In California, compassion is a rare commodity among those promoting and profiting from subsidised wind and solar. Seminal Californian Punk outfit, the Dead Kennedys seem to have foreshadowed their State’s insane energy policy with […]

Bad Medicine: Why Hydrogen Gas Ain’t No Cure For Intermittent Wind & Solar

There’s a whiff of desperation surrounding wind and solar advocates touting hydrogen gas as the next ‘green’ energy Nirvana. Renewable energy rent seekers have seized on the concept of producing hydrogen gas using wind and solar as a way of converting useless, unpredictable and unreliable electricity into something that can be used as and when […]

Farmers Fightback: Rural Americans Sick & Tired of Wind Developer Lies, Trickery & Deceit

The wind industry was built on lies and runs on subsidies. The people that pay the subsidies are growing sick and tired of the lies. Which is why the wind industry has never had it so tough: subsidies are being slashed, destroying their ‘business’ model and rural communities are in full-scale revolt, sick of being […]

Simply Staggering: What Weather Dependent Wind & Solar Really Costs

Assume, for the moment, the wind always blew and the sun always shone, then wind and solar power just might make sense. That’s why those talking about an ‘all wind and sun powered future’ sound like they’re coming from another planet. Renewables rent seekers keep telling us how cheap wind and solar are, compared to […]
