Sweeping Blackouts Mean California’s ‘Green’ Energy Fantasy Just Got Real

California’s sweeping blackouts are a fair indication of what happens when sound engineering gets trumped by woolly-headed ideology. An obsession with intermittent wind and solar has left millions of Californians sweltering in the dark this summer. With the blackout that struck in mid-August, officials blamed the “unexpected loss of a 470-megawatt power plant Saturday evening, […]

Code Black: Mass Blackouts Just Beginning of California’s Renewable Energy Debacle

California’s a place renowned for its woolly-headed thinking, not least its suicidal obsession with chaotically intermittent wind and solar. A couple weeks back, during a blistering Californian Summer, a spike in electricity demand (think millions of air conditioners running at full tilt) combined with calm weather, desert cloud cover and, later, sunset to leave millions […]

Heartless: Renewable Energy Advocates Hate the Poor & Want to Keep Them That Way

Since World War II affordable power was regarded as a birthright: RE obsessed virtue signallers have destroyed that notion in a heartbeat. In California, compassion is a rare commodity among those promoting and profiting from subsidised wind and solar. Seminal Californian Punk outfit, the Dead Kennedys seem to have foreshadowed their State’s insane energy policy with […]

California Dreamin’: Unreliable Wind & Solar Force Californians to Rely On Diesel Generators

  Let renewable energy zealots and rent seekers anywhere near your power system and prepare for deadly chaos. Wind and solar ‘powered’ South Australians know what it is to do without power for days on end. Having experienced plenty of load shedding lasting for 5 hours or more, South Australians got a real taste of […]

Blood & Gore: Mike Moore’s ‘Planet of The Humans’ Unmasks The Power & Money Behind Renewables Scam

  Apoplexy is the order of the day among ‘green’ energy zealots following the release of Mike Moore’s ‘Planet of The Humans’. In the military they call it “blue on blue”, although when the hard left are pulling the trigger it’s more aptly described as “green on green”. But the documentary backed by Moore isn’t […]

Renewable Energy Regrets: Intermittent Wind & Solar Delivers Grid Chaos for Californians

The only thing that’s inevitable about the so-called ‘transition’ to wind and solar is rocketing prices and grid chaos. The inability to deliver electricity as and when it’s needed, mean wind and solar have no commercial value – apart from the massive subsidies they attract. Being commercially worthless is one thing, but dumping volumes of […]

Die Already: When Will the Wind and Solar ‘Industries’ Finally Collapse?

The wind and solar ‘industries’ are a pair that can’t survive without massive and endless subsidies, which means their days are numbered. Their ultimate demise is a matter of when, not if. The wind back in subsidies across Europe has all but destroyed the wind industry: in Germany this year a trifling 60 onshore wind turbines […]

Guaranteed ‘Green’ Energy Punishment: US Renewable Portfolio Standards Send Power Prices Soaring

That reliance on chaotically intermittent wind and solar sends power prices into orbit is no surprise to a German, South Australian or Dane. That RE obsessed trio slug it out for the honour of suffering the world’s highest power prices (see above). Try as they might, RE zealots simply can’t escape the bleeding obvious: South […]

Getting Wasted: 30 Years – $Billions in Subsidies – Wind & Solar Deliver Paltry 18% of California’s Energy Demand

Constant claims that wind and solar are already meaningful power sources are just a little ‘overblown’. Despite hundreds of $billions in subsidies, pie in the sky targets and punitive mandates, 30 years on and their combined contribution to total energy demand is little more than a rounding error. Even in places like wind and solar […]

Regressive Renewables: Chaotically Intermittent Wind & Solar Deliberately Designed to Destroy Wealth & Prosperity

Australia’s Renewable Energy Target reads like a National suicide note, but the land of Oz is no orphan in that regard. If the enemies of state were looking for insidious, all-pervasive policy perfectly designed to wreck an economy from within (while barely raising a murmur amongst the proles), they need look no further than ratcheting […]
