Wind Power Chaos Reigns: Scots Build Diesel Generators & Brace For Week-Long Blackouts

Let renewable energy zealots and other such ideologues anywhere near your power system and prepare for deadly chaos. Wind and solar ‘powered’ South Australians know what it is to do without power for days on end. Having experienced plenty of load shedding lasting for 5 hours or more, South Australians got a real taste of […]

Climate Con-Job: You Know It’s a Ponzi Scheme When Pure Fantasy Has a Colossal Price

The wind industry is just the latest and largest in a long line of great Ponzi schemes, like the South-Sea Bubble and Dutch tulip mania. In the wind industry, the scam is all about pitching bogus projected returns (based on overblown wind “forecasts”) (see our posts here and here and here and here); claiming that wind turbines will run for 25 years, without the need […]

Batteries Included: Wind + Solar + Batteries = Insanely Expensive Power

Sky’s The Limit: Wind & Solar ‘Powered’ South Australians Hit With (Another) 22% Price Hike

Attempting to rely on intermittent wind and solar is guaranteed to send power prices into orbit. Just ask a South Australian. Despite some desperate wind industry propaganda efforts suggesting that South Australians are currently enjoying 1970s power prices, Australia’s renewable energy capital still pays the world’s highest power prices – thanks to its ludicrous 50% Renewable Energy […]

Labor’s Renewables Insanity Hits New High With Bill Shorten’s Million Battery Brain Fart

  Despite the hype from RE zealots, the chaotic and occasional delivery of wind and solar won’t be cured with batteries, large or small.

Powerful Nonsense: Even With Mythical Mega-Batteries 100% Renewable Energy Remains 100% Fantasy

No country has ever powered itself entirely on sunshine and breezes. But that doesn’t deter the delusional from claiming it can be done. With the kind of fanatical zeal that led to virgins being thrown into volcanoes, politicians announce their commitment to an all sun and wind powered future, as if such a thing was […]
