BP’s ‘Green’ Hypocrisy: Why Big Oil Promotes Chaotically Intermittent Wind & Solar

Remember all that talk a few years back about wind and solar replacing fossil fuels, forever? No? That’s because they can’t, and never will. Sunset and calm weather mean wind and solar can and will never replace conventional power generators. By ‘conventional’ we mean coal, gas, nuclear and, where geography and geology permit, stored hydro […]

WSJ Dares to Doubt: What if Wind & Solar ‘Transition’ Aren’t ‘Inevitable’, After All?

When the Wall Street Journal starts to question the inevitability of our ‘transition’ to an all wind and sun powered future, you know the gig is up. Until now, the WSJ has been a champion for the wind and solar ‘industries’ in the US. Playing to the myth that the wind and sun are ‘free’, […]

Total Joke: Elon Musk’s Giant Lithium Battery Never Designed to Deliver Grid-Scale Power

Reefer-smoking Tesla tycoon, Elon Musk convinced South Australians to spend $150 million on a battery that could power the state for all of four minutes. Now that’s salesmanship! Even as a piece of propaganda, it failed: then Labor Premier, Jay Weatherill touted Musk’s battery as the panacea to his state’s power woes, as he tried […]

Why Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s ‘New Green Deal’ is a New Dark Ages Nightmare

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is the Green-left’s favourite flibbertigibbet. Her New Green Deal, with its promise of 100% wind and solar delivering power for all, for free and for all time, should have been dismissed as fairytale nonsense, long ago. However, there are plenty of pixie dream girls and boys happy to suck it up, like there’s […]

Dancin’ With the Devil: 100% Wind & Solar Targets = Guaranteed Economic & Social Catastrophe

Delusional and dangerous, sums up those peddling 100% wind and solar targets. No country on earth has ever powered itself entirely using sunshine and breezes. And no country ever will. Sunset and calm weather are real things. On the other hand, mega-batteries are a mixture of myth and nonsense. At the margins, technically possible. But, […]

‘Clean’ Energy Kaput: Germany’s ‘Inevitable’ Wind & Solar ‘Transition’ An Inevitable & Total Failure

Germany is the world leader when it comes to wind and solar and worth following, if you’re keen to return to the Dark Ages. Germans suffer Europe’s highest power prices – right up there with wind ‘powered’ Denmark and just behind South Australia, Australia’s wind and solar capital – which tops the list. Its so-called […]

Seriously Shortchanged: Germans to Squander €4.6 Trillion on Intermittent Wind & Solar – Get 2.5% of Their Energy In Return

If the recent and idiotic obsession with intermittent wind and solar needed a pinup girl, it would have to be Germany. No country has squandered more treasure on giant windmills and an endless sea of solar panels. For all that wanton environmental destruction, Germans get a meagre 2.5% of their primary energy demand satisfied by […]
