Total Bunkum: Why Running On 100% Wind & Solar Is 100% Impossible

No country in the world is running on wind and solar power alone; no country ever will. Calm weather and sunset guarantee it. Every routine collapse in wind and solar power output (for the reasons above) requires the total capacity lost in consequence to come from somewhere, and that ‘somewhere’ is going to be a […]

RE-Treat: Europe’s Repeated Wind & Solar Failures Force Renewable Energy Reversal

Germany and Britain are so heavily dependent on wind and solar, that gloomy, windless weather now presents an existential threat. The Germans have even coined a word for it: ‘dunkelflaute’. If mass blackouts during freezing winter weather weren’t a threat to millions of lives, it would almost be comical. What’s occurred is the perfect example […]

Clown Factor: Trying to Explain Our Idiotic and Self-Destructive Wind & Solar Obsession

Remember the class clown? The idiot who couldn’t help himself, always in trouble and too witless to know why. Well, he’s now firmly in charge of energy policy, which in its design and implementation resembles the chaos of a mismanaged three-ringed circus. As the adage goes, don’t put down to conspiracy what can be chalked […]

‘Renewables’ Failure Rekindles German Love Affair With Nuclear & Coal-Fired Power

The fact that consumers want power as and when they need it, at prices they can afford, has scuttled Germany’s grand wind and solar ‘transition’. This is one of the stories that the MSM has been running away from for years; since February 22, they’ve been running the meme that it’s all Vlad Putin’s fault. […]

Frozen Wind Turbines & Solar Panels Leave Thousands of Americans Freezing In The Dark

Far from threatening human existence, coal and gas have, once again, literally saved thousands of American lives. A bout of what is now known as ‘extreme weather’ demonstrates how extremely stupid it is to rely upon sunshine and breezes for power. During December’s Big Freeze, millions of America’s solar panels were carpeted in snow and […]

Why Subsidised Wind & Solar Are Guaranteed To Destroy Our Wealth & Prosperity

Depriving your economy of reliable and affordable power is the fastest way to wreck it. Which is the very thrust of the policy that has been adopted by every country currently obsessed with subsidised wind and solar. The rent-seekers behind the greatest economic and environmental scam in history, still contend that there are millions of […]

Planned Failure: Wind Power Obsession Leaves Britain’s Power Supply On Brink Of Collapse

You know policymakers have lost the plot when they start waxing lyrical about battery storage and ‘green’ hydrogen; neither of which exist at any scale; neither of which are even vaguely economic, even with massive taxpayer-funded subsidies to prop them up. English dictionary doyen, Samuel Johnson reckoned that patriotism is the last refuge of scoundrels, […]

Ever Reliable: Nuclear & Coal-Fired Power Provide Germany’s Only Energy Salvation

Seems like only yesterday that Germany’s grand wind and solar transition was the talk of the town. Dubbed the “Energiewende”, it was meant to spell an inevitable end to nuclear and coal-fired power, which would soon be replaced by nothing other than forests of wind turbines and seas of solar panels. Well, that was what […]

Wind Power Collapses During Calm Weather Means Soaring Power Prices & Power Rationing

The British like to ‘Keep Calm and Carry On’, but panic sets in when calm weather hits and wind power output hits the floor. What follows is another round of opportunistic price gouging by the owners of Britain’s gas-fired power plants, and remaining coal-fired plants, able to charge ludicrous amounts for electricity simply because they’re […]

Climate Changed: Calm, Gloomy Weather Killing Europe’s Grand Wind & Solar ‘Transition’

In the mother of all ironies, Europe’s wind and sun cult are complaining about uncooperative weather. The Germans have even coined a word for it: ‘dunkelflaute’ – meaning a period of gloomy, windless weather. Which, in reality, means little or nothing by way of output from their more than 30,000 wind turbines and millions of […]
