Planet Strippers: Wind Turbines & Solar Panels Driving Insatiable Mineral Demand

Incapable of delivering power as and when we need it, wind and solar are utterly pointless as power sources. But, as a source of insatiable demand for the Planet’s (purportedly) dwindling resources they are first rate. Wind turbines and solar panels devour scarce resources and provide nothing much in return. Their insatiable mineral demand (and […]

Total Flop: Nothing ‘Inevitable’ About So-called ‘Transition’ to Wind & Solar

A mixture of wishful thinking and childish pipedreams, there’s nothing inevitable about the so-called ‘transition’ to wind and solar – Sunset remains a fixed feature of daily life, as does stubbornly calm weather. But the acolyte and rent seeker would have us believe that these natural phenomena are either trivial obstacles to be overcome – […]

Renewables Generated Demand For Rare Earths Generating Toxic & Lasting Legacy

Sure, China profits from the great wind and solar scam, but it comes with a toxic legacy caused its rare earth processors that make it all possible. Every wind turbine, every all-EV and every solar panel critically depends upon a myriad of so-called ‘rare earths’. The minerals in question have become ‘rare’, of late, as […]

What’s Behind the Great Hydrogen Gas Hoax (Even More Subsidies For Wind & Solar)

Renewable energy rent-seekers reckon they’ll have a marketable product if they can convert chaotically intermittent wind and solar into hydrogen gas. There is, of course, no commercial value in an energy source that cannot be delivered as and when consumers need it. The only value in weather-dependent wind and sunshine-dependent solar comes from the subsidies […]

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 […]

Hype-Dream: World’s Renewable Energy Storage Capacity Destined to Remain Totally Trivial

When they’re not bursting into toxic fireballs, the contribution made by giant lithium-ion batteries remains utterly trivial. They are, after all, electricity storage devices and don’t add a lick to electricity generation capacity, anywhere. The cost of battery storage, at scale, is out of all proportion to the benefits returned and we wouldn’t be having […]

The Great Green Lie: Wind & Solar Aren’t Saving The Planet, They’re Wrecking It

The idea that unreliable wind and solar can save the planet is one of the greatest lies, ever told. In touting their purported environmental credentials, the crony capitalists, rent-seekers and fawning advocates never take into account any of the associated costs. It’s all sunshine and suitably stiff breezes, as far as the wind and sun […]

Tesla’s Incendiary Mega-Batteries: The Bigger They Come, The Longer They Burn

Giant lithium-ion batteries are said to be the saviour of intermittent wind and solar. But their pesky habit of exploding into toxic fireballs suggests that they’re not really part of the ‘inevitable transition’ team, after all. ‘Bombs’ are designed to store and quickly release copious amounts of energy, so are the mega-batteries being rolled out […]

Completely Clueless: How Idiots Hijacked Our Reliable & Affordable Energy Supplies

Death and taxes are guaranteed, so are rocketing power prices and power rationing once intermittent wind and solar are added to the grid. Duplicating capital costs to destabilise and undermine a generating system that works, with one that only ‘works’ when the wind is blowing just right and the sun is shining in a cloudless […]

Environment Wreckers: Wind & Solar Chewing Up World’s Resources At Astonishing Rate

Diffuse, intermittent and unreliable wind and solar are utterly pointless as power sources – because they can’t deliver power as and when we need it. However, as a source of insatiable demand for the Planet’s (purportedly) dwindling resources they blitz the field. At the heart of every Electric Vehicle, solar panel and wind turbine there’s […]
