Biden’s New Green Deal: Delivering California’s Blackout Culture to a Town Near You

Americans who gleefully voted to oust Donald Trump, are about to reap the whirlwind. Biden and his Squad of green-left lunatics are going to visit upon all Americans precisely the same renewable energy chaos that Californians have suffered, for years. Routine power rationing and mass blackouts, as well as being hit with the highest power […]

Net Loser: Subsidised Wind & Solar ‘Industries’ Destroy More Jobs Than They Ever Create

Calling wind and solar ‘industries’ is sloppy; any operation that can’t survive without massive and perpetual subsidies isn’t really an ‘industry’, at all. Industry connotes effort, output and production. Whereas the wind and solar scam involves destruction on all fronts: environmental, social and economic. The myth about so-called ‘green’ energy jobs, is just that. South […]

Power Battle: Common Sense Abandoned With Push For More Intermittent Wind & Solar

Our good friends’ logic and reason were sacrificed long ago by the High Priests of the wind and solar cult. Attempt to point out the inevitable effect of sunset on solar output and/or calm weather on wind power output and you’ll be branded ‘heretic’, before you know it. You’ll be sent off to an education […]

Perfect Storm: Renewables Obsession Leaves Europeans Vulnerable During Bitter Winter

Wind and solar are meant to be the solution to our looming weather woes. The truth is that the weather-dependent ‘unreliables’ have increased our mortal vulnerability to mother nature’s vagaries. Europe is in the grip of a bitter winter and, with routine and total collapses in both wind and solar output, its electricity grid is […]

Banquet of Consequences: Time to Force Wind & Solar Worshippers to Rely Exclusively on Sunshine & Breezes

Anyone railing against nuclear, coal or gas-fired power hasn’t been forced to rely exclusively on hopelessly unreliable wind and solar. The anti-fossil fuel crowd are, of course, hypocritical and the anti-CO2/anti-nuclear mob are the most hypocritical of all. For those claiming they’re quite happy to do without coal and gas, wait till one of their […]

Frequency Freak-out: Chaotic Wind & Solar Threaten to Cripple Europe’s Power Grid

Electricity grids are like a living organism and their day-to-day survival is a finely tuned operation. Balancing supply to match demand on an instantaneous basis, is part of the trick. However, the maintenance of the required frequency (50Hz in most cases) within a narrow and defined tolerance has become a nightmare of continental proportions, thanks […]

It’s Subsidised Wind & Solar or Meaningful Well-Paid Jobs: But You Can’t Have Both

Australian power prices went through the roof as a result of its obsession with chaotically intermittent and heavily subsidised wind and solar (see above). The relationship is so stark, why even a blind man, open to reality, will readily see it.  However, no amount of evidence appears to register with those who pretend to govern […]

Coal Comfort: Total Collapse in Wind & Solar Output Leaves Freezing Germans Desperate for Coal-Fired Power

Germany’s held up as the world’s wind and solar capital. But, at the moment, the ‘green’ stuff can’t be purchased, at any price. Its millions of solar panels are blanketed in snow and ice and breathless, freezing weather is encouraging its 30,000 wind turbines to do absolutely nothing, at all. [Note to Ed: don’t forget […]

Wrecking Ball: Australia’s Fixation With Subsidised Renewables Guarantees Economic Disaster

If the object was wrecking every last manufacturing, mineral processing and mining job, then Australia’s renewable energy policy has delivered on time and under budget. Starting in 2001 with John Howard’s Renewable Energy Target (massively expanded by Kevin Rudd in 2009), the subsidies being squandered on intermittent wind and solar are now in the order […]

Technology Tease: On The Cruel Promise of a Renewables/Hydrogen Fuelled Future

  The wind and solar industries were built on lies, run on myth and are fuelled by subsidies, so the only way forward is more of the very same. It took politicians and punters around a decade to cotton on to the hopeless unreliability and chaotic intermittency of solar and wind power.  Which required an […]
