Where Never Reliable Wind & Solar Perpetually Fail, Ever Reliable Nuclear Power Just Works

Renewable energy rent seekers hate nuclear power for the same reasons we promote it: it works 24 x 365, whatever the weather and delivers power that people can afford. Anyone claiming that carbon dioxide gas is destroying the planet and not promoting nuclear power simply can’t be taken seriously. Neither can anyone still suggesting that […]

Blackout Bombshell: Unreliable Wind & Solar Delivering Europe’s New Dark Ages

Germany’s power grid is on the brink of collapse, thanks to chaotically intermittent wind and solar; a complete power supply failure is just a heartbeat away. As winter bites and power use soars, dead calm conditions mean there is little or no wind power and solar panels crusted in snow and ice are producing nothing […]

What’s Wrong with the Green New Deal? We’ll Start With the Economics

It took Americans a generation to become energy self-sufficient, but the Democrats will start destroying all that as soon as Joe Biden gets the keys to the White House. The Democrat’s Green New Deal was cooked up by Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Ed Markey, the kind of know-it-all socialists who can destroy economic prosperity without raising […]

How to Destroy Reliable & Affordable Power Supplies: Just Add Subsidised Wind & Solar

Australians once enjoyed the cheapest and most reliable power in the world; now they suffer the world’s highest prices and they’re lucky to get power, at all. Throwing billions at weather-dependent wind and sunshine dependent solar has had the inevitable consequence of destroying both the reliability and affordability electricity, in a country blessed with vast […]

Command & Control: Subsidised Wind Power Central to Britain’s Great Socialist Reset

As Margaret Thatcher put it: “The problem with socialism is that you eventually run out of other people’s money.” That adage, however, doesn’t appear to trouble Britain’s current PM, Boris Johnson, whose plan to squander a further £50,000,000,000 on subsidies and over-the-market contracts for intermittent offshore wind power beggars belief. But that colossal crony-capitalist boondoggle, […]

No Renewables Recharge: Busting the ‘Big Batteries Will Save Wind & Solar’ Myth

You know the wind and solar industries are in trouble when they’re reduced to muttering about humongous batteries saving their bacon. Around the world, renewable energy rent-seekers have been furiously peddling the myth that mega-batteries are a free and easy solution to the hopeless intermittency of weather-dependent wind and solar. The line goes that giant […]

Brits Biggest Losers: China Biggest Winner From Boris Johnson’s £50bn Wind Power Plan

Offshoring jobs and lining the pockets of foreign wind turbine makers is part and parcel of Britain’s giant wind power scam. Boris Johnson’s plan to squander a further £50,000,000,000 on subsidies and over-the-market contracts for intermittent offshore wind power is positively bonkers. At a time when Britain needs all the help it can get to claw itself […]

Hidden Cost of Solar: Sunset Delivers Power Price Surge As Governments Dictate Household Power Use

Hereafter, the lights will go on during the day and off after sunset. In the ‘even the Soviets couldn’t have dreamt this up’ category sits a plan to force households to use power when they simply do not need it. Backed by the Federal government’s Small Scale Renewable Energy Scheme – which delivers taxpayer funded […]

Burning Yen: Japanese Government Scraps Last Wind Turbines in Failed $580 Million Offshore Project

Apart from literally burning cash, there is no faster way to squander money than by piling it into an offshore wind power project. It’s hardly news that the true cost of generating electricity using wind power is staggering; the cost of doing so offshore is astronomical. But don’t take our word for it, the Japanese […]

Biden’s Bonanza: Poor Will Suffer Most From Democrats Wind & Solar Obsession

Joe Biden’s plan to carpet America wall-to-wall with 60,000 wind turbines and millions of solar panels comes with a staggering cost, and it’s America’s poor that will pay the heaviest price for the Democrat’s delusional energy policy. The only thing guaranteed about subsidising wind and solar is rocketing power prices and unreliable electricity. Ask a […]
