Collateral Damage: Poor Biggest Victims of Britain’s Insane Climate & Energy Policies

As a bitter British winter bites, spare a thought for its poor and vulnerable who can’t afford power, thanks to its suicidal energy policies. Principal amongst those policies is the Climate Change Act. 10 years on, Britain is counting the cost of the CCA: it’s staggering and it’s the poor that suffer most. The Climate […]

Batteries Included: Wind + Solar + Batteries = Insanely Expensive Power

  Despite the hype from RE zealots, the chaotic and occasional delivery of wind and solar won’t be cured with batteries, large or small. Sure, at a technical level, it is possible to store large volumes of electricity for a period, such that it might be released when power consumers need it. However, were such […]

People Power: Taiwanese Trump Renewables With Landslide Vote For Nuclear Power

One hackneyed myth is that the proletariat will never vote in favour of nuclear power. The Taiwanese just put paid to that, with a landslide victory for common sense and reason. Over the last decade or so, the wind industry has attempted to get its claws into Taiwan, with mixed results. In June, Taiwan’s anti-nuclear […]

Sky’s The Limit: Wind & Solar ‘Powered’ South Australians Hit With (Another) 22% Price Hike

Attempting to rely on intermittent wind and solar is guaranteed to send power prices into orbit. Just ask a South Australian. Despite some desperate wind industry propaganda efforts suggesting that South Australians are currently enjoying 1970s power prices, Australia’s renewable energy capital still pays the world’s highest power prices – thanks to its ludicrous 50% Renewable Energy […]

Hot Stuff: Instead of Cooling the Planet, Harvard Studies Find Wind Turbines Raise Local Temperatures by 1.5°C

As the mantra has it, wind turbines are the perfect panacea for rising temperatures. Panic has spread 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 part […]

Hopelessly Helpless: German Wind Power Fails 93.3% Of The Time & Collapses in Minutes

  When the challenge is thrown at wind power proponents about its hopeless intermittency, like a drug addict, the answer is always “more”. More of the same, more turbines, more panels, more subsidies, more transmission network capacity, more non-existent mega batteries, well, just more. Germany is held up as the shining example of what our […]

Staggering Cost: Offshore Wind Power 25 Times More Expensive Than Coal, Gas & Nuclear

Wind power is utterly pointless on every level, having been abandoned centuries ago for pretty obvious reasons, starting with the weather. The oft heard retort from those fighting the prospect of wind turbines being speared into their backyards, is “why don’t they put them offshore?” These are the characters who are simply too gutless to […]
