COP27 That!: African Leaders Reject ‘Renewables Reset’ & Press For Fossil-Fuelled Future

Once again, well-fed cynical Western elites are berating developing countries about their energy use, hoping to prevent them from using the very sources that drove the Industrial Revolution and dragged millions of Europeans out of agrarian poverty, two centuries ago. Pontificating windbags are railing against the prospect of real development in the poorer parts of […]

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’) […]

Wicked Waste: Nothing to Show From $3.8 Trillion Squandered On Intermittent Wind & Solar

The wild claims about wind and solar replacing, coal, gas and nuclear power don’t stand first contact with reality. Over the last 20 years, trillions of dollars have been squandered on subsidies, tax breaks, mandates, penalties, and other state-directed efforts to make chaotically intermittent wind and solar serious contenders on the world energy scene. Their […]

Battle Lines: American Farmers Winning War Against Lying, Greedy Wind & Solar Outfits

Remember all those glowing stories about wind and solar power outfits being welcomed into rural communities with open arms? You know, tales about how farmers are dying to have turbines lined up all over their properties? How locals can’t wait to pick up some of the thousands of permanent, high paying jobs on offer? How developers […]

Gas Demand Driven By Need to ‘Back Up’ Wind & Solar Using Fast-Start Gas Turbines

Before the obsession with intermittent wind and solar took hold, gas was rarely used to generate electricity if coal, nuclear or hydro sources were available. Gas-fired electricity, in the main, was simply too expensive, by comparison with coal-fired power. Coal-fired generators are designed to run around-the-clock. Wind turbines and solar panels only run according to […]

‘Green’ Fraud: Wind & Solar ‘Transition’ Devouring The Planet’s Scarce Resources

Rent-seekers and the MSM keep telling us the transition to an all-wind and sun-powered future is not only inevitable, it’s a cinch. The power pricing and supply calamity playing out in renewables-obsessed Germany and Britain stands as a pretty fair counterpoint, to that nonsense. Then, we’re told, it can all be done, provided it’s “done […]

Dig This: Miners Can’t Keep Up With Wind Industry’s Insatiable Mineral Demands

The wind industry’s insatiable demand for the Planet’s (purportedly) dwindling resources has no apparent limit. Inside every giant industrial wind turbine, there’s a bevy of rare minerals which are fast becoming rarer. Then there are more mundane minerals like iron ore (used to make steel) and copper, critical to their generators, internal cabling and wine, […]

No New Green Deal: Nothing Environmentally Friendly About Wind & Solar

Cultists couldn’t care less about the environmental destruction that both wind and solar leave in their wake, merrily ignoring the thousands of wind turbine blades and millions solar panels already being dumped in landfills. Apparently, their mountainous toxic waste legacy will be something for future generations to deal with. The same characters vilify fossil fuels […]

State Sanctioned Slaughter: Wind Farm Operator Gets Licence to Kill Rare & Endangered Bats

The wind power cult have no difficulty in justifying the destruction of pristine landscapes; the dismemberment of once cohesive, rural communities; the creation of toxic waste lands in China (where the rare earths essential to wind turbines are processed); crushing power prices that punish the poorest and most vulnerable in society; and barely shrug at the slaughter […]

Don’t Believe The Hype: Exposing Staggering Cost of Subsidised Wind & Solar ‘Transition’

There’s only one problem with the claim that wind and solar are cheap; that would be the evidence. The power pricing and supply calamity that has struck Britain and Germany, and places like California and South Australia before that, renders the “renewables are cheap” meme little more than delusional nonsense. But the unhinged and unsupported […]
