Wind & Solar Wipeout: Reliable & Affordable Power Now Part of Ancient History

Pretty soon, the notion of having affordable power available on demand will be ancient history. Never before in the course of human existence have so few done so much damage to so many. Electricity prices are spiralling out of control in any place attempting to run on sunshine and breezes, power rationing (aka ‘demand management’) […]

Exploding Force: Lithium Battery Bombs Just Another Part of Our ‘Inevitable Green Transition’

Giant lithium-ion batteries are touted as planet saviours, but make sure you’re on the other side of town when they explode into toxic fireballs that firefighters simply can’t extinguish. On the large-scale, it’s the kind of terrifying Tesla moment experienced by locals in Victoria when one of these lithium-ion wonders went up in flames and […]

Vlad’s Victory: Europe Losing Energy War Thanks to Wind & Solar Obsession

Many a defeat is the product of a grand delusion; Europe’s obsession with wind and solar is just another example. Beaten by Vlad Putin’s ability to restrict the gas it needs to run fast-start-up gas peaking plants (essential to cover rapid and unpredictable collapses in wind output and rapid and wholly predictable collapses in solar […]

Deliberately Trashed: Why Biden’s Subsidised Wind & Solar Push Is Destroying America

Once the engineers were banished and the bureaucrats took charge, the fate of reliable and affordable energy supplies was sealed. Trashing coal-fired power plants, demonising nuclear power and squandering untold $billions on hopelessly unreliable wind and solar would have never happened if the engineers were left alone to run the show. The results are difficult […]

Why Weather-Dependent Wind & Solar Transition Will Inevitably Fail

Spoiler alert: the reason the wind and solar transition must fail is calm weather and sunset. So much, so simple and obvious. No country has ever powered itself entirely on wind and solar; no country ever will.  Anyone telling you otherwise, is either a lunatic or they’re in on the greatest economic and environmental fraud, […]

Crunch Time: Demand For Power On Demand Means Wind & Solar Craze All But Over

Power-starved Brits and Germans will soon tell you how important having power on demand truly is. And they’ll also tell you what it’s like to receive a power bill that you’ve absolutely no hope of paying. After years of telling us how cheap and easy our inevitable transition to an all-wind and sun-powered future would […]

Sun Cult Exuberant Over Brief Moment When Solar Delivered: Then Came Sunset…

  The infantile mentality of the renewables cult is on vivid display when they crow about wind or solar adding something meaningful to the grid. Always brief and fleeting, the 60 minutes when solar or wind did something special, is always trumpeted as if no one else cares about their power needs for the other […]

Utopian Fantasyland: Wind & Solar ‘Transition’ Total Delusion Being Sold By Total Fools

The West’s obsession with the unreliables, wind and solar was guaranteed to end in tears – the weather-driven power rationing and rocketing power prices were as perfectly predictable, as they were perfectly avoidable. Every country that has hitched its energy future to sunshine and breezes is facing both a power pricing and supply calamity. Wind […]

Daily Delivery Fails: Why Weather-Dependent Wind Power Will Always Be Utterly Pointless

Electricity that can’t be delivered as and when households and businesses need it, has absolutely no commercial value. Hence the massive and endless subsidies to chaotically intermittent wind and solar and the punitive mandates that force retailers to take it, ahead of the reliable and affordable stuff. Random 3,000 to 4,000 MW wind power output […]

Demand Control: Wind & Solar ‘Transition’ Means Routine State-Controlled Power Rationing

Delusional reliance on unreliable wind and solar is a reason that governments are interfering in consumers’ power usage. Pitched under the euphemism “demand management”, state-controlled power rationing is the natural consequence of attempting to run on sunshine and breezes. When the sun sets and calm weather sets in, wind and solar power can’t be bought […]
