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 […]

Economic Nonsense: Why Grid-Scale Battery Storage of Wind & Solar Power Can Never Work

At the recent Glasgow climate gabfest, plenty of hot air was dedicated to the mythical notion of grid-scale battery storage of wind and solar. It’s true that renewable energy storage is setting the world on fire. But not as wind and solar acolytes might have hoped (see above and below). When giant lithium-ion batteries aren’t exploding in […]

Post-Renewables Reality: Nuclear Power Generation Easy Solution For Energy Starved World

Europe’s great wind drought has focused attention on the unassailable fact that wind power is an utterly meaningless power source. The demand for electricity is, always and everywhere, a ‘here and now’ kind of thing. Households and businesses couldn’t care less if there’s a roaring gale and plenty of wind power at 2 in the […]

Goodbye Glasgow – Hello Energy Poverty: The Staggering True Cost of Wind & Solar

If the Climate Industrial Complex gets its way, kiss goodbye to reliable and affordable energy. The apparent answer all our woes is more of the same: endless subsidies to hopelessly chaotic wind and solar, with even greater subsidies to pie-in-the-sky ‘green’ hydrogen and insanely expensive giant lithium batteries. If you’re not already suffering the consequences […]

Grand Betrayal: How The Climate Industrial Complex Conspires to Destroy Your Economic Future

The Glasgow gabfest is over, but the grand betrayal has only just begun: in cahoots with the Climate Industrial Complex, Western governments have consigned your economic future to history – and it’s a dark and dismal one, where rocketing energy prices will destroy once prosperous nations and prohibit prosperity in those aspiring for it. A […]

Green Narrative to Nowhere: Mainstream Media Buries Truth About True Cost of Net-Zero

Mainstream media tell us that net-zero carbon dioxide emissions targets are the only path to peace and prosperity. Never troubled by the facts that surround them, the mainstream journo ignores every shred of evidence to the contrary and appear to live in a fantasy land disconnected from logic and reason. At the heart of the […]

Chasing Net-Zero Targets Without Nuclear Power Amounts to Assisted Economic Suicide

With no defined benefit and undisclosed costs, net-zero carbon dioxide gas emissions targets amount to an assisted economic suicide pact. Countries serious about their economic future – eg China, India, Russia, Brazil and countless others – have no interest in signing up to a scheme that will merely enrich rent-seekers and crony capitalists but guarantee […]

Staggering Waste: Counting The Obscene Cost of Wind & Solar Subsidies

There would not be wind or solar industries in the absence of massive and endless subsidies. Those subsidies are either tacked on top of rocketing power bills and paid for by households and businesses; or they are provided in the form of tax credits or rebates to the owners and operators of wind turbines and […]

Renewables Retreat: Europe’s Big Wind Power Drought Provides Major Reality Check

All of a sudden coal-fired power is back in vogue and everybody wants a nuclear power plant: what a difference a burst of calm weather can make. The world’s ‘love’ affair with wind power was never going to last. It was always going to be like unveiling a mystery bride on the wedding night to […]
