Dark Days Ahead: Wind & Solar Obsessed Germany Braces For Mass Blackouts

A mixture of dread and panic has struck with the realisation that power rationing and rocketing prices are the only thing ‘inevitable’ about the grand wind and solar transition. Germany set its path towards energy poverty, economic and social chaos, almost 20 years ago. Now, with a little help from Vlad Putin and his strategic […]

Planet Strippers: Amazon’s Balsa Forests Being Raped To Make Wind Turbine Blades

Stripping the Amazon basin’s forests of balsa to make wind turbine blade is all part of our ‘inevitable’ transition. So is turning rural China into a toxic industrial wasteland (see above). Giant industrial wind turbines comprise hundreds of tonnes of steel, aluminium, plastics, copper and rare earths used in the generator’s magnets. There is also […]

Dirty Business: CCP Dominates Global Solar Panel Market Using Slave Labour

The fact that China dominates solar panel manufacturers using slave labour tends to take the smugness out of Western virtue signallers. Over time, a few journalists have been able to sneak a peek behind the CCP curtain and bring to light the manner in which China’s ‘employs’ its Uyghur and Kazakh minorities to manufacture the […]

‘Green’ Energy Fantasy Unravels As Reality Grips Wind & Solar Obsessed Europe

What’s dressed up as “progress” these days increasingly looks and sounds like a drift back to our Dark Age of misery, poverty and ignorance. Anyone who still thinks wind turbines and solar panels equate with Earthly salvation, is more than just a little confused. But that’s the very point and purpose of those pushing the […]

Blackout Blitz: Power Prices Rocket As London Struggles to Keep the Lights On

The lamps went out across Europe in 1914, 1939 and now they’re going out, again. This time, thanks to a maniacal obsession with intermittent wind and solar. Wishful thinking, combined with ideological zealotry has left Britain’s energy supplies in tatters. Germany is in the same boat, and for the same reasons. A few months from […]

Why Weather-Dependent Wind & Solar Transition Will Inevitably Fail

Spoiler alert: the reason the wind and solar transition must fail is calm weather and sunset. So much, so simple and obvious. No country has ever powered itself entirely on wind and solar; no country ever will.  Anyone telling you otherwise, is either a lunatic or they’re in on the greatest economic and environmental fraud, […]

Crunch Time: Demand For Power On Demand Means Wind & Solar Craze All But Over

Power-starved Brits and Germans will soon tell you how important having power on demand truly is. And they’ll also tell you what it’s like to receive a power bill that you’ve absolutely no hope of paying. After years of telling us how cheap and easy our inevitable transition to an all-wind and sun-powered future would […]

Don’t Follow The Leader: How To Avoid Britain’s Wind & Solar Energy Disaster (Just Stop Now)

Britain’s power consumers (or what’s left of them) are brewing for a full-scale revolt. 12 months ago, the average annual energy bill was £1,400 ($2,400). Energy industry analyst Cornwall Insight forecasts that the British price cap will skyrocket and the average annual bill will reach £3,582 ($6,177) next month. By January, it predicts it will […]

Markets Reject ‘Coal is Dead’ Mantra: Global Thermal Coal Prices Surge to All New Record

Mark Twain noted reports of his death had been greatly exaggerated. So too, the ‘death’ of coal-fired power. For years, the wind and sun cult have been bleating triumphantly that ‘coal is dead’. Energy markets, however, don’t share their peculiar worldview. Thermal coal prices are off the charts, with record demand driving record prices: Australian thermal […]

Net-Zero Nonsense: Nothing Cheap About Mandated CO2 Emissions Reduction Targets

Net-zero carbon dioxide emissions targets are just the latest woke wheeze to grip our political betters. We’re told that wind and solar are central to so-called ‘net-zero CO2 emissions targets’. Never mind the renewables driven energy calamity playing out in Europe, California, Texas and now Australia. What is little more than a rebooted extension of […]
