Contrarian Ontarians: Canadians Lead Charge On Cheap, Safe & Reliable Nuclear Power

Canada is yet another case that buries the lie that nuclear power is expensive. The only stand-alone generation source that does not generate carbon dioxide gas during the process, you’d think that the climate cult would be screaming from the rooftops to get nuclear power plants built as a matter of pressing urgency. But, not […]

‘Green’ Energy Obsession Loses Its Glitter: Subsidised Wind & Solar Scam Unmasked

Every good cult needs a mantra. For the anti-progress crowd, it’s the line that ‘green’ is good. However, in the way that Humpty Dumpy could make words mean anything he chose them to mean, ‘green’ has taken on a meaning all of its own. The same goes for the nonsense tag ‘renewable’; there’s nothing renewable […]

Putin Delivers Germans Valuable Lesson: Forget About Running On Sunshine & Breezes

Germany’s so-called wind and solar ‘transition’ – the ‘Energiewende’ was in strife before Vlad Putin invaded Ukraine; post invasion, it’s a diabolical mess. German households and businesses are already suffering Europe’s highest power prices; since Putin’s Ukrainian adventure began, German power prices have rocketed, further still, recently hitting a record 40 US cents per kWh. In […]

Worthless Wind & Solar: Once Again Output Totally Collapses During Freezing Weather

Keen to survive when dead-calm, freezing weather sets in? You’d better have access to nuclear or fossil-fuelled power sources, simply because wind and solar generators are bound to deliver absolutely nothing, at all. Texans and Germans know all about it. Now, Canadians are getting a taste of what it is when you pin your daily […]

Crippling Cost of Ontario’s Obsession With Wind Power: 71% Increase in Power Bills

Ontario’s government determined to eliminate coal-fired power in the deluded belief that wind power would soon replace it. The result, as the protesters above predicted, has been an unmitigated economic disaster. Power prices in the Province have spiralled out of control, as a direct result of its suicidal energy policy. Thousands of jobs have been […]

Banquet of Consequences: Time to Force Wind & Solar Worshippers to Rely Exclusively on Sunshine & Breezes

Anyone railing against nuclear, coal or gas-fired power hasn’t been forced to rely exclusively on hopelessly unreliable wind and solar. The anti-fossil fuel crowd are, of course, hypocritical and the anti-CO2/anti-nuclear mob are the most hypocritical of all. For those claiming they’re quite happy to do without coal and gas, wait till one of their […]

Decade of Despair: Counting Staggering Cost of Ontario’s Wind Power Disaster

It took Ontario’s Green-left lunatics less than a decade to destroy its once reliable and eminently affordable power supply. It was deliberate, it was malicious and it was, in economy wrecking terms, very effective. Dressed up under the guise of its Green Energy Act, the mandated targets for, and preferential treatment of, wind power, the […]

Reality Check: Green Energy Fantasies Threaten Post COVID Economic Recovery

There’s debate over which did more harm: the coronavirus or government policy responses to it. But there’s no argument that our economic recovery requires reliable and affordable electricity. Which means that the current arguments about recharging economies using heavily subsidised and chaotically intermittent wind and solar are as dangerous as they are delusional. Ross McKitrick […]

No Contest: Never-Reliable Wind & Solar Can Never Match Ever-Reliable Nuclear

Wind power might be ‘free’, but try purchasing it, at any price, when the wind stops blowing; likewise with solar power when the sun drops over the horizon. Comparing weather dependent wind generation with sources available, around-the-clock, irrespective of the weather, is a game played by intellectual pygmies. There is, of course, no comparison. Good […]

New Study Finds Wind Turbine Noise Driving Neighbours From Their Homes

  What wind farm neighbours have to tolerate is nothing short of criminal: incessant turbine generated low-frequency noise and infrasound drives neighbours nuts and, where they have the option, out of their homes altogether. The most common adverse health effect caused by wind turbine noise emissions is sleep deprivation, which brings with it a grab […]
