Climate Short-Changed: Big Calm Heralds Britain’s Renewable Energy Crunch

Appears the climate doomsayers were right: the ‘Big Calm’ has struck Britain and Western Europe – slashing wind power output, without relent. Far from being the panacea for a changing climate, wind power generation is now, apparently, a victim. Over the last few months, wind power output has thoroughly collapsed in Germany, across Western Europe […]

Offshore Offside: Lawyers Line Up to Smash Atlantic Coast Wind Power Projects

Big-spending Joe Biden wants to squander untold $billions of taxpayer’s hard-earned on wind power, including thousands of turbines to be planted across the pristine and productive fisheries situated off the New England and mid-Atlantic coasts. Fishermen are, quite rightly, already up in arms, determined to prevent the mindless destruction of the marine environment and, with […]

Nuclear’s Time is Now: Australian Voters Demand Nuclear Powered Future

Australia’s politics is bereft of leadership and there’s no better example thereof than the failure to advance nuclear power in this country. A month back, Australia’s PM, Scott Morrison did a deal with the US and the UK which allows Australia to catch up and join the technological first world – via American or British […]

All-Electric Future Fizzles: EV Chargers First Target For RE Power Rationing

The trope has it that soon we’ll all be auto-piloted by EVs charged by electrons lovingly caressed from sunshine and breezes. Although, if that vision is ever realised, expect to hear more about collisions between stray unicorns and EVs, which is just as likely as an RE-powered all-EV future. Meanwhile, back on Earth, grid managers […]

Under My Wheels: Why Solar ‘Roadways’ Turned Out to Be An Epic Engineering Fail

Whatever happened to solar roadways? A few years back, embedding PV cells into road surfaces was going to be the next big thing. And then, all of a sudden, it wasn’t. True it is, that the wind and solar cult attracts all sorts of cranks and crackpots, promoting all sorts of harebrained schemes and subsidy-backed […]

Dead-Calm Weather Killing ‘Inevitable’ Renewable Energy ‘Transition’

Wind power is, by definition, a wholly weather-dependent power source. So, it should come as no surprise that – whenever a burst of calm-weather hits – those charged with responsibility for delivering power, as and when we need it, scramble to obtain it from any convenient and, more importantly, reliable source. Which is why Germany […]

Crippling Cost of Ontario’s Obsession With Wind Power: 71% Increase in Power Bills

Ontario’s government determined to eliminate coal-fired power in the deluded belief that wind power would soon replace it. The result, as the protesters above predicted, has been an unmitigated economic disaster. Power prices in the Province have spiralled out of control, as a direct result of its suicidal energy policy. Thousands of jobs have been […]

Wind Industry Jobs Myth Turning Britain Into Venezuelan Economic Basket Case

The ‘inevitable transition’ to an all wind and sun powered future comes with a promise of an endless sea of ‘groovy’ sustainable jobs in the manufacture of solar panels and wind turbines and much more, besides. However, across the globe, the great ‘green’ jobs ‘bonanza’ is being revealed for the hoax that it truly is. […]

Court Out: Judge Finds Gas-Fired Power Better For Environment Than Wind & Solar

All care and no responsibility, the wind and solar advocate is quick to ignore every environmental downside that comes with wind turbines and solar panels. However, the Minnesota Court of Appeals wasn’t ready to accept the argument that wind and solar are as gentle on the environment as the sunshine and breezes that occasionally power […]

Scotland’s ‘Green’ Jobs Revolution Implodes: Wind Turbine Manufacturer Sacks Hundreds

A job that depends on subsidies, isn’t really a job, at all, it’s a make-work scheme cooked up by closet socialists. And, so it is, with the so-called “green jobs” that self-evidently exist, and only exist, while the renewable energy subsidies keep flowing. There is no natural market for intermittent wind or solar power, because […]
