Routine Delivery Failures Renders Offshore Wind Power Utterly Meaningless

Despite overblown promises, offshore wind power is as meaningless as its onshore cousin. Centuries of sailing the high seas provided the clue: when the wind stops blowing, the boat ain’t going. So, if seafarers had nothing but curses for their days in the doldrums, why would offshore wind power be any different? Not only is […]

Diesel Driven: World’s First “Net-Zero” Wind Power/Pumped Hydro System A Dismal Failure

The climate/RE cult’s latest mantra “net-zero”, apparently means wind and solar connected to batteries or pumped hydro. The notion has it that wind and solar’s hopeless intermittency can be overcome by a few TWh’s worth of giant lithium-ion batteries or, where geography and hydrology permit, pumped hydro systems. The latter model involves using wind and […]

Weather Makers: How Industrial Wind Turbines Are Changing The World’s Climate

As the mantra has it, wind turbines are the perfect panacea for rising temperatures. The ever fearful fret about the planet’s temperature rising a couple of notches (apparently an increase of just 1.5°C means instant disaster and pumping it up by 2°C means an irreversible catastrophe). Now it seems that these things are playing their […]

Inevitable Transition: Why Intermittent Wind Power Drives Power Prices Through The Roof

Every country attempting to run on wind and solar suffers rocketing power prices; no exception. In Britain, power prices jumped 50%, overnight, when a legislated price cap was lifted; and power prices continue to rise at an astonishing rate. Subsidised wind power is at the heart of Britain’s power pricing and supply calamity. Pete North […]

Wind & Solar Subsidies: High Time To End The Never-Ending Story of Wasted $Billions

Death and taxes are certainties, so too the wind and solar industry’s critical dependence on massive and endless subsidies. Those pushing wind and solar keep telling us that the power they produce is ‘free’ and getting cheaper all the time. Every so often, rent seekers and their political enablers are faced with the retort that, […]

How Big Banks Conspire to Wreck Reliable & Affordable Energy Supplies

That the big end of town is keen to profit from the greatest economic and environmental fraud of all time, is no secret. Banks have been attempting to wreck reliable and affordable power supplies, for the best part of 20 years, dressing it up as “corporate social responsibility”. There’s nothing moral about it; it’s all […]

Game Over: Vlad Putin’s Ukrainian Invasion Spells The End For ‘Green’ Energy Dream

All of a sudden, energy security and affordability is the new black. The Russian onslaught in Ukraine has focused thinking on energy supplies, like nothing before. The West has taken its energy advantages for granted, for far too long. But, the energy pricing and supply calamity that’s followed Vlad’s aggressive bid for territorial expansion, has […]

Apologise Now: West’s Attempt To Rely On Wind & Solar A Monumental Mistake

Anyone who still believes in an ‘inevitable’ transition to wind and solar, clearly hasn’t been paying attention. The same crowd tells us that ‘coal is dead’, ignoring the fact that coal demand continues to rise and the record prices paid for the black stuff is through the roof. The Russian advance on Ukraine has only […]

The Great Green Lie: Wind & Solar Aren’t Saving The Planet, They’re Wrecking It

The idea that unreliable wind and solar can save the planet is one of the greatest lies, ever told. In touting their purported environmental credentials, the crony capitalists, rent-seekers and fawning advocates never take into account any of the associated costs. It’s all sunshine and suitably stiff breezes, as far as the wind and sun […]
