Wind Power: Not ‘Cheap’, Not ‘Clean’ and Not ‘Green’

The central, endlessly repeated lie upon which the wind industry seeks to ‘justify’ the colossal and endless subsidies upon which it critically depends; the destruction of wind farm neighbours’ health, wealth and happiness; and the slaughter of millions of birds and bats, is that wind power causes substantial reductions of CO2 emissions in the electricity […]

The Big ‘Green’ Lie: Why We’ll Never, Ever Be 100% Powered By Wind & Solar Power

The wind and solar acolyte in their more delusional moments readily proclaims that an all-wind and sun-powered future is upon us.  Never mind sunset; never mind dead calm weather; and never mind the fact that the idea that giant lithium-ion batteries economically storing wind and solar power at grid-scale is pure hokum – for the […]

Net-Zero ‘Green’ Reset Designed to Destroy Our Reliable & Affordable Power Supplies

Poor, Be Damned: Subsidised Wind & Solar Scam Guarantees Third World Poverty

The great wind and solar scam’s beneficiaries couldn’t care less about the poorest billion, struggling daily for a little energy for cooking or warmth, which comes often in the form of scavenged twigs and dung.

Numbers Game: Smashing The Wind & Solar Power Storage Myth With Arithmetic

Rent-seekers would have it that giant lithium-ion batteries are the simple answer to wind and solar’s hopeless intermittency, but that notion doesn’t stand first contact with the wind and solar industry’s nemesis: arithmetic. The wishful claim that we’ll all soon be powered by nothing but wind and solar is, of course, utter nonsense. And, as […]

Wind & Solar Subsidies: High Time To End The Never-Ending Story of Wasted $Billions

Death and taxes are certainties, so too the wind and solar industry’s critical dependence on massive and endless subsidies. Those pushing wind and solar keep telling us that the power they produce is ‘free’ and getting cheaper all the time. Every so often, rent seekers and their political enablers are faced with the retort that, […]

Inconvenient Truths: Sunset & Calm Weather Mean Wind & Solar Can Never Power Us

No country has ever powered itself entirely on wind and solar; no country ever will. And the reason is very simple: sunset and calm weather.
