State of Delusion: Push to Kill-Off Arizona’s Nuclear Plant & Go 50% Wind & Solar

  Believing that wind and solar can power your economy means sacrificing our good friends, logic and reason. It also demands ignorance of the most basic of facts: eg, sunset and calm weather.

Wind ‘Powered’ Britain Scrambles to Build Nuclear Power Plants as UK Wind ‘Drought’ Hits

There’s a reason that windmills were abandoned in the 19th century: it’s called “the wind”. In 2018, only profiteers and idiots remain as advocates for wind power.

Wind & Solar Fantasy Unplugged: 100% RE Means Total Economic Destruction

There’s something almost comical when RE zealots try to outdo each other. Those that worship wind and solar are deluded, to be sure.
