Risible Renewables: Weather-Dependent Wind Power – Never There When You Need It Most

Pin your energy needs on the weather, and prepare for disappointment, over and over and over again. South Australians know it, Germans know it, Texans and Californians know it, all too well. In the latter part of 2021, as the Big Calm descended across Western Europe, Brits learned all about it, too. Quietly firing up […]

Reaping The Whirlwind: Europe’s Wind & Solar Obsession Sends Power Prices Rocketing

Europeans have squandered untold $billions on chaotically intermittent wind and solar. The only evident results being routine power rationing, blackouts and power prices doubling every 12 months, or so. The article below from Bloomberg lays it out fairly clearly: those countries obsessed with wind and solar are literally reaping the whirlwind, as power prices spiral […]

Joe Biden’s Suicidal Energy Bill Threatens to Destroy America’s Power Grid

From the outside it looks like treason, to the insider it’s merely the extension of the most massive subsidy scam in history. For nearly 40 years, the wind and solar industries have been telling us that they’ll soon be standing on their own two feet. But their greatest fear is being given the chance to […]

Furious Fishermen Sue To Stop Offshore Wind Industry Wrecking Fishing Grounds

Always making more enemies than friends, the wind industry is being sued by America’s fishermen to stop it wrecking their fishing grounds and livelihoods. Having ridden roughshod over communities on land for the best part of a generation, the wind industry has been doing so offshore, for more than a decade. But, when it comes […]

Net Zero Madness: Why Wind Power Expansion Plans Don’t Add Up

Akin to pushing on string, you can keep building these things ad infinitum and add nothing in terms of meaningful power generation capacity. It doesn’t matter whether a wind power fleet comprises a hundred, a thousand or a million wind turbines, when the wind stops blowing, they will deliver an almighty, collective doughnut. And it’s […]

World’s Woeful Wind Power Output Spells Doom For Renewable Energy Rent Seekers

Don McLean’s American Pie was all about the day the music died; 2021 was all about the year that the wind industry died. Its well-worn claim that wind power is just a heartbeat away from replacing meaningful power sources – such as coal, gas and nuclear – took a battering across the globe last year. […]

Guilty: Intermittent Wind & Solar Responsible For Global Power Pricing & Supply Calamity

Europe’s ongoing wind drought (and corresponding wind power output collapse) is a wake-up call for anyone vaguely concerned about energy supplies. Starting in September last year and running for weeks on end, total collapses in wind power output across Western Europe and the UK, forced a wholesale rethink of the maniacal reliance upon wind and […]

Busted: Government Fines Another Wind Turbine Blade ‘Recycler’ For Illegal Dumping

Dumping 45-60m long, 10-20 tonne turbine blades in landfills is a costly ‘solution’ that many wind power outfits seem keen to avoid. Back in August, we reported on one blade ‘recycling’ company busted for illegally storing hundreds of wind turbine blades at three sites in Iowa. Global Fiberglass Solutions Inc had accumulated some 1,300 blades […]

Dirty Rotten Scoundrels: Double Dealing Wind Developer’s Dodgy Contracts Exposed

How do you know when a wind developer’s goon is lying to you? His lips are moving. Riding roughshod over rural communities is just another day at the office for wind power outfits; lies, bullying and deceit are their tools of trade. When these characters turn up and start spruiking tall tales about wonderful wind […]
