Daily Delivery Fails: Why Weather-Dependent Wind Power Will Always Be Utterly Pointless

Electricity that can’t be delivered as and when households and businesses need it, has absolutely no commercial value. Hence the massive and endless subsidies to chaotically intermittent wind and solar and the punitive mandates that force retailers to take it, ahead of the reliable and affordable stuff. Random 3,000 to 4,000 MW wind power output […]

Net-Zero Targets Obsession Guaranteed to Destroy Reliable & Affordable Power Supplies

The failure to advance nuclear power in this country to replace coal-fired plants being driven out of business by massive subsidies to wind and solar beggars belief. Everyone with half a brain is alive to the fact that chaotically intermittent and heavily subsidised wind and solar are responsible for Australia’s power pricing and supply calamity Australian households […]

Demand Control: Wind & Solar ‘Transition’ Means Routine State-Controlled Power Rationing

Delusional reliance on unreliable wind and solar is a reason that governments are interfering in consumers’ power usage. Pitched under the euphemism “demand management”, state-controlled power rationing is the natural consequence of attempting to run on sunshine and breezes. When the sun sets and calm weather sets in, wind and solar power can’t be bought […]

Reality Bites: Germany’s Wind & Solar Transition Declared Abject Failure

The German government’s cultish obsession with wind and solar is a mixture of wishful thinking and mass delusion. Both have collided with reality as Vlad Putin continues to put the squeeze on Europe’s gas supplies – gas which has been used to run the banks of fast-start-up gas turbines essential to backing up mammoth, sudden […]

Big Green Lie: Why Endless Subsidies to Wind & Solar Won’t Make The Weather Any Better

If climate change is a problem, then wind turbines and solar panels aren’t a solution: heavily subsidised and unreliable wind and solar are an economic and environmental disaster. When climate alarmists managed to hijack energy (and with it economic) policy it was a case of lunatics taking over the asylum. In every breath, they exhort […]

No ‘Right’ Place: Industrial Wind Turbines Don’t Belong In ANYONE’S Backyard

As wind turbines are incapable of generating power on demand and wouldn’t last a second without massive subsidies, there is no ‘right’ place for them. Any power generation source that can’t deliver electricity on demand is pointless, so talk about appropriate siting is pure nonsense. Why bother? Rent seekers and crony capitalists are the only […]

Hollow Promises: Thousands of ‘Green’ Jobs Disappear With Turbine Blade Maker’s Total Flop

It takes a special brand of delusion to swallow the wind industry’s promise of an endless stream of meaningful employment. Whether you call it a ‘Green New Deal’ or a ‘Great Green Reset’, the promised boom in well-paid and lasting employment turns out to be little more than hot air. Increase power prices, as with […]

Renewable Energy Madness: Why Net-Zero CO2 Targets Herald New Miserable Dark Age

Wisdom comes with experience: people soon wise up to the reality of the wind and solar ‘transition’ once they’ve spent time freezing or boiling in the dark. Over time, the experience will be shared by more of our compatriots on planet Earth. Obsessive, indeed maniacal, renewable energy policies are a guarantee of crippling power bills […]

Subsidised Renewables Revolt: Entrenched Energy Poverty Source of Next Revolution

Power prices driven through the roof by subsidised and unreliable wind and solar means electricity is out of reach for thousands of struggling households. Reliable and affordable electricity is at the heart of modern, socially stable societies. Deprive the masses of something that has been taken for granted for generations, and get set for serious […]

Grid-Scale Power Storage Myth Busted: Giant Batteries Can’t Save Unreliable Wind & Solar

It only takes a moment’s reckoning to appreciate that the grid-scale storage electricity generated by wind or solar is a perfect nonsense. Those profiting from hopelessly intermittent wind and solar still claim that mega-batteries are the solution to their obvious lack of reliability. Others point to pumped hydro and even ridiculously claim that “excess” wind […]
